Stray Kids member Bang Chan has revealed that he is no longer allowed to continue his popular livestream series, Chan’s Room.
Bang Chan has been known to host weekly livestreams on YouTube, and formerly on VLIVE, where he would chat with fans and talk on various topics. The musician launched the series in early 2019, with the latest episode being held on May 14 this year.
Notably, the May 14 episode of Chan’s Room drew controversy over remarks Bang Chan had made about generational differences in greeting etiquette, following his experience at the Music Bank in Paris event in April.
Bang Chan later apologised for this comments in a post on the official Stray Kids Instagram. “I thought about the impact my words and behaviour can have on others, and have deeply reflected on myself,” he wrote at the time.
In a fan-captured video on Twitter, during what appears to be a fanmeeting event, Bang Chan reveals that he “can’t do Chan’s Room anymore”. He added: “I want to actually, but the company says no.”
