From October 17, 2017 to December 19, 2017, Stray Kids, the TV series, gave birth to Stray Kids, the JYP Entertainment K-pop boy group. It was in the vaguest sense reminiscent of how JYP had used the TV series Sixteen in 2015 to create Twice. And like Twice, Stray Kids have built up a vast fandom in the times since. Following their predebut Mixtape EP in January 2018, Stray Kids officially debuted on March 25, 2018, with the mini-album I am NOT and the lead single “District 9” releasing one day later. And to learn exactly how old the Stray Kids (SKZ) members are now, here is the current age and birthday for Bang Chan, Lee Know, Changbin, Hyunjin, Han, Felix, Seungmin, and I.N (plus the birth date of former member Woojin).

Former member Woojin was born on April 8, 1997. He departed Stray Kids on October 28, 2019 for “personal reasons.”
When the original Stray Kids series began airing back in October 2017, the trainees were the following ages: Woojin was 20, Bang Chan was newly 20, Lee Know (Lee Minho) was narrowly still 18, Changbin was 18, Hyunjin was 17, Han (Han Jisung) was 17, Felix was 17, Seungmin was 17, and I.N (Yang Jeongin) was 16. And when the group finally, officially debuted in March 2018, they were the following ages: Woojin was narrowly still 20, Bang Chan was 20, Lee Know was 19, Changbin was 18, Hyunjin was newly 18, Han was 17, Felix was 17, Seungmin was 17, and I.N was 17.
I.N is the maknae, meaning he is the youngest member of Stray Kids, whereas Woojin was originally the oldest member. When Woojin left, Bang Chan became the oldest member of the group, and Bang Chan has always been the leader of Stray Kids, in addition to an important creative musical force in the group.
