Black Pink, the newest addition to the celebrity mobile app V, raked in 7 million hearts over the weekend, with broadcasts from their dormitory and a mystery “filming site.”

The girls wore minimal make-up in the broadcast from their dormitory on Saturday, holding on to stuffed toys. Jisoo held a puppy on her lap.

Fans requested Black Pink to speak in a number of languages, and asked the girls to share what their first impressions of each other was.

Rose volunteered, “The first time I saw Jisoo unnie was in the krump dance lesson. She danced so well, she was my girl crush.”

The girls were then prompted to answer other questions regarding their blood type and favorite colors.

Jisoo’s blood type is A, Lisa is O and Rose and Jennie are both B.

For favorite colors, Lisa chose yellow, Jennie picked black and both Jisoo and Rose said purple was their favorite.

They closed the show for “beauty sleep” before their Sunday appearance on “Inkigayo.”

The quartet came back to the V app on Sunday afternoon after “Inkigayo,” dressed in all-black with a full face of make-up.

“We’re at a filming site now. That’s the only thing we can say, that we are here to film -- we can’t tell you for what,” Jennie said.

The girls spent ten or so minutes having small talk in front of the fans.

They shared the story of how they bought a pack of Peppero, chocolate stick cookies, and shared it between the four of them on Nov. 11 to celebrate Peppero Day.

In Korea Nov. 11 is known as the day of love-confessions accompanied by stick cookies resembling the shape of the date.

Sextet girl group Apink announced that they will make a return in December through a V app live broadcast Sunday.

“We’ll be back before this year passes,” said Chorong, fading off with “December…”

The girls are currently preparing for a year-end concert “Pink Party” slated for Dec. 17 and 18.

“General ticket sales for our concert will open on Nov. 18, we hope many of you will come see us,” said the girls in unison.

Prior to the domestic concert, Apink will be in Denmark and Singapore in the coming weeks for fan events.

Apink cheered on high school seniors who are about to take national college entrance exam on Thursday.

The group debuted in 2011 with EP “Seven Springs of Apink.

Sandeul of boy group B1A4 tentatively wrapped up his soloist activities Sunday, with an autograph signing event and two V app broadcasts.

The 24-year-old had released a mini-album, “Stay as you are,” on Oct. 4. The album contains five songs, one of which features female quartet Mamamoo’s Wheein.

Sandeul had been promoting his songs for about a month, but has now finished the activities for his group’s return.

In the V app live marking the occasion, Sandeul wore the same striped shirt he wore in his “Stay as you are” music video.

“B1A4 is almost ready to release a new album soon. Are you ready for it?” said Sandeul.

“I want to give you some spoilers in advance. I’ll sing one letter each from our new songs,” said Sandeul. He teased the fans with just an “Ah” and a “Da.”

He was later joined by groupmate Gongchan. The two joked around with funny V app filters, similar to the filters on Snapchat and Snow.

Sandeul and Gongchan sang mellow ballads on V, asking the fans to “Stay as they are” until they return with the promised new album.
