FT Island member Lee Hong-gi appeared on V screen with a live broadcast from Japan. He popped up with his American friend Jamil. The two went to a Korean barbecue restaurant for a meokbang -- abbreviated for meokneun bangsong, which means “eating broadcast” -- with appetizing samgyeopsal, or pork belly.

“Once the hearts reach 2 million, we’re going to start grilling the meat,” said Hong-gi, asking fans to give him hearts. As soon as the number of hearts hit 2 million, the two delightfully downed some soju -- Korea’s traditional alcoholic drink -- which Hong-gi called “inseparable” from the delicious meat, showing off his love for the drink.

The star also showed off his linguistic talent by talking in both Korean and Japanese, while his American friend simultaneously translated what he said in Japanese. This was a great relief for many fans who watched the live broadcast from across the world, as they were able to communicate with them in three different languages.

The singer hinted at the release of a new album which will likely be dropped later in November. He also asked fans for their continuous support as he will soon release his album in Japan, adding he recently finished shooting the M/V and the album’s cover.

Girl’s Day member Minah jumped onto the V screen from a skateboard field in Seoul. Her tutor for the day was f(x) member Amber, who taught her how to ride a skateboard step by step. The two constantly played pranks on each other, showing off their intimate friendship. Shannon and Z.HERA also joined them later; the four were split up in two teams to compete for ice cream. The fierce competition ended with Amber’s team winning, which made Minah buy ice cream for everyone.

The sixth episode of “Fall in Mr. Kang” featured Kang Min-hyuk on Mount Namsan.

“I came out in the daytime for a special date with you,” said Kang, repeatedly talking about the perfect weather. It was indeed a romantic date for fans, enjoying the beautiful scenery from the top of the Mount Namsan with the hallyu star.

Four members -- Alberto Mondi from Italy, Daniel Lindemann from Germany, Guillaume Patry from Canada and Zhang Yuan from China -- from JTBC’s popular talk show “Non-Summit” also went live to introduce a new member. Zhang Yuan introduced the new member as his “rival,” as he was also a news anchor back in his country Thailand. The new member talk about his country, and about how he likes the life in Korea. JTBC’s talk show “Non-Summit,” featuring a panel of non-Korean hosts, airs every Monday at 10:50 p.m.
