Stray Kids planned a number of activities for the promotion of their mini album ‘ODDINARY‘, which would mark their comeback. However, their plans were thwarted because of COVID-19, as two members of the band tested positive for the disease caused by the virus.
On March 18, the South Korean band unveiled the MV of “Maniac” to complement the release of their new EP. Unfortunately, hours after the release of the album, it was revealed that Changbin was diagnosed with the virus. Later, it was reported that Han was also infected.
