Stray Kids’ 3RACHA, consisting of members Bang Chan, Changbin and Han, is all set to perform at the 2023 Global Citizen Music Festival. The talented Gen 4 K-pop group members who were originally going to perform as an eight-member group will now perform as a three-member unit instead.

On September 21, JYP Entertainment announced that Stray Kids' Lee Know, Seungmin and Hyunjin got into a minor accident and will not be performing at the 2023 Global Citizen Music Festival. However, STAYs needn't be disheartened as 3RACHA will perform instead, ensuring ardent fans aren't heartbroken.

Stray Kids’ 3RACHA, consisting of leader Bang Chan and rappers Han and Changbin, has decided to step in to deliver an electrifying subunit performance when its plans for a group performance fell through due to an unfortunate mishap.

On September 21, JYP Entertainment released a statement sharing details of Hyunjin, Seungmin and Lee Know's minor accident. JYPE shared that the vehicle carrying the members had been involved in a minor collision the day before.

Although none of the members were seriously injured, Hyunjin, Lee Know and Seungmin “sustained mild muscle pain and bruises," and have been advised by their doctor to not exert themselves and get adequate rest.

While most STAYs were shocked to learn of the Case 143 singers' accident, a section of fans was disheartened that Stray Kids might skip performing at the 2023 Global Citizen Music Festival altogether.

However, JYP Entertainment and @GlblCtzn's Twitter account confirmed that the subunit will take center stage, ensuring fans of the NOEASY singers aren't left heartbroken.

With only a couple of hours to go before their grand stage debut, STAYs are drumming up support for Bang Chan, Changbin and Han with encouraging and thoughtful messages. They are proud to see the artists go from humble beginnings to performing at such a major event. "3RACHA IN THE BIG APPLE" and "3RACHA Fire Up Global Citizen" have been the top trending topics on X (formerly Twitter).

The 2023 Global Citizen Music Festival will be held on September 23 in New York City with a star-studded list of global popstars, which includes:

  • 3RACHA - Bang Chan, Changbin and Hyunjin
  • BTS' Jungkook
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers
  • Ms Lauryn Hill
  • Anitta
  • Conan Gray
  • D-Nice
  • Sofia Carson

STAYs are happy and proud of the members as the decade-long popular music festival aims to end extreme poverty around the world by the year 2030 through concerts, music and performances that will raise sufficient funds. The money will go to charities that will aid in eradicating world poverty and hunger among the underprivileged.
