Apink’s Hayoung aired a V live broadcast on Saturday to play the mobile game “Power: The Rulers” with fans and chat on the game server with them.

Apink is promoting the mobile game. On Saturday the group became the game‘s broadcasting jockeys.

“The event is not really about playing the game with us Apink, but more about communicating with us,” said Hayoung.

“If your game IDs are easy to read, I think that would help us read your comments out loud and respond,” she said.

Only the game players with levels over 30 were able to participate in the game’s live chat with the K-pop girl group.

“If you play the game for less than four days you can hit level 50,” Hayoung insisted, recommending her fans to play the game.

Hayoung also took fans‘ suggestions on how to improve the mobile game.

Hayoung turned off the V live broadcast when the time hit 9 p.m., so that she could meet the fans on “Power: The Rulers.”

HyunA spent the weekend practicing for her upcoming mini-album “Following.”

She aired a V live broadcast from Cube Entertainment’s dance studio where she showed her coworkers to her fans.

”I wanted to show you what I‘m up to today,” said HyunA. “But in truth, I wanted to show you my makeup for the day.”

HyunA swerved the camera around the agency showing the Cube Entertainment staff busy at work. The vibe around HyunA’s office was lively and positive, with staff members freely throwing out comments when HyunA approahced them.

“I feel like my V lives are ‘amoomal daejanchi’,” HyunA said, using the newly coined popular Korean phrase for ‘saying whatever.’

The uncensored “amoomal daejanchi” allows candid glimpses of the Hallyu stars’ personalities and interests.

HyunA teased that she will “spoil” some of the key features of her upcoming album on her Instagram account. HyunA‘s “Following” will officially launch on Tuesday.

Gfriend hosted a fan event on Saturday, for which they specially donned youthful school uniforms as they had pledged in the case of receiving first place on live music program, “Music Bank.”

The six-member group aired a V live broadcast following the fan event for the fans who weren’t able to come see them in person.

“All thanks to you, we were able to come out on top on the music show,” started Sowon.

Yerin took the next baton, “Because you gave us this special gift, I took out this uniform I last wore three years ago. I never thought the day would come for me to wear my uniform again and I‘m so glad.”

Yuju went next to speak to the fan club ’Buddy,‘ “Thank you for all your love.” She said her hair now was exactly the same style as she had back when she was in school. “I’m perfectly recreating my school look,” Yuju said.

Shinbi and Eunha said, “We feel like we have gone back to school.”

Shinbi had sent back her uniform after graduation to her home in the provinces. “I had my family send it back to me. When I received it I wore it straight away and realized my skirts had been so long back in my days in middle school!”

All Gfriend singers were happy to be reliving their younger days.

All the members said goodbye to the fans and said that they looked forward to Sunday‘s “Inkigayo” TV show.
