So first of all I was trying to figure out what the letters meant at the end of the recent teasers and It was finally made clear today with the side effect teaser that came out this morning.
I had to look multiple ways because at first there is no way this is a word. I am taking Korean class this summer at my colllege so it has been very helpful. I went the the help of the naver dictionary to test out different words because I don't know all korean words yet. The first thing that remotely looked like a word was 부 족meaning 'to have shortage or lack there of' and I thought that could be it But as you can see they is an added letter to that 'ㅗ' the only reason it would be this is if they add another teaser trailer with that added letter in there but it is highly unlikely
So then I was thinking maybe some letters are upside down And jumbled up, so I come to find what I have to show you in the next picture
And I had no clue what this was so I went in to research online and what I found out was pretty cool. It is houses in a town called Naganeupseong folk village from way back in the Josen area and tourists can visit there like it is the olden days and time stands still. Making you feel like you are living in the past. People still live there too which is pretty amazing! You have to take a bus there because of the drive there being so long it is a 50 minute drive through an inter city bus and you have to go to many multiple buses to get there. Here is a link to more on this town https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/Naganeupseong-folk-village
Here are some pictures it is very beautiful!
So this is where I am assuming Stray Kids are going when they go on that bus at the end of side effects teaser 1
Now I am not sure about why 4 members get on the bus in the first panel and there are balloons attached with a box in the cart. But in the intro to talking about songs they said something about how one song is about deciding on what you are doing for a living was the right choice when you are already in so deep. Maybe it is like showing both sides to what could has happened and what could not have been. Maybe 4 decided to go and the rest just decided they would not and just left. And then the other is them deciding they don't need to go and leaving their dreams behind, watching them drive away. They do look pretty wistful watching the bus leave in that panel. But I dunno we will have to see when the MV comes out ^¬^! I am super excited
Also one more thing, '바' means to be at lose for what to do. Yo, that actually sounds like my hypothesis! I wonder if I could be right? And like I don't remember where Bang Chan went in Finding SKZ but it could have been this place? If anyone remembers or looks at it again let me know where that was!
