Stray Kids only made their comeback on December 9th with ‘Clé: Levanter‘, but they just released a special mixtape project on December 26th. As part of their new series with mu:fully, in which they showcase B-sides that fans have never heard before, they have released ‘Gone Days‘.
‘Gone Days’ MV:
The MV feature the members in a classroom. They all seem rather bored and engage in other activities when the teacher isn’t looking. The teacher, who is wearing a horse head, represents the older generation. In the MV, the members dance, watch movies together, and purposely bother the teacher. There’s even a part of the MV where Lee Know and Felix act as TV reporters, explaining what “gone days” means. It’s a fun and cute MV that goes well with the meaning of the song.
The lyrics of the song definitely make a bold statement. “Ggondae” is a Korean term that refers to old, nosy and bossy people. Stray Kids, representing the new generation and youth, want older generations to allow them to mature on their own instead of constantly nagging or pestering them. Even if things were done a certain way in the past, the new generation can figure out new ways to do things by themselves. However, the boys acknowledge that the reason why the older generation nags so much is because they just want what’s best for them, and Changbin thanks them for it in his rap. Many listeners will be able to relate to these feelings.
In the mu:fully interview, Changbin stated that ‘Gone Days‘ helped Stray Kids formulate their identity, making it a very special and meaningful song to them.
It looks like more mixtapes will be released next year, so stay tuned!
