“Stray Kids” found in JYP’s backyard and I’m keeping them!

Why do I keep watching idol survival shows? Maybe it’s because of those young and hopeful faces ready to face the industry with their talent and hard work. Maybe it’s living vicariously through them. Or maybe just because I was bored. But no matter the reason, I always manage to find myself some gems that needs to be shared.

I wonder about the significance of the number three… Why not make it seven? Or why not make it a weekly tag? Or maybe that’s just too much to hope for and I will probably have run out of people to tag if that happened. But still – kudos to the one who created this tag!
