Park Jin-young, also known as JYP the CEO and producer of JYP Entertainment, gave K-pop fans a peak of his upcoming solo concert in December via a surprise live concert via Naver V app.

Park kicked off the Saturday broadcast saying, “Today, I’m going to be singer Park Jin-young, neither a producer nor the head of my agency.”

“This broadcast would be a good pair with a glass of alcohol. It will be like a preview of what my ‘Blue & Red’ concert.”

The “Blue & Red” concert, which is a part of Park’s annual year-end concert series “Naughty” tour, will kick off in Seoul with concerts Dec. 8-10 at Olympic Hall inside Olympic Park. It will then head to Gwangju, Daegu and Busan.

After performing his breakout hit “Swing Baby,” Park explained the concept of his upcoming concert.

“I’ve picked out 30 hits out of the 500 songs I made, and arranged them in a musical format, composed in six scenes,” he said, adding that “Swing Baby” will be the opening song of the first scene of the musical. Park went on to perform his hits like “Afternoon Separation” and “Dandara Blues,” as well as the songs he created such as Kim Jo-han’s “I Love You” and Lee Ki-chan’s “Cold.”

“My favorite artists have passed away early. I’d like to sing for my fans as long as possible. I will guarantee you the best dance and songs until I turn 60,” said Park.

Highlight member Lee Ki-kwang looked back on his old days during an interview that was broadcast via Naver V live.

“I’m always unstable. I wasn’t sure that I would be able to maintain the reputation and fame that I got when I was a member of Beast,” said Lee, who this year returned as a soloist after eight years.

“All I could do was practice, sing and dance. I spent 24 hours every day practicing.”

Recalling the first moment he took to the stage as a member of Highlight -- Beasts new name after parting ways with its agency in 2016 and failing to retain the use of the group’s name -- earlier this year, Lee said he still couldn’t forget the screaming and cheering from the crowd.

“I decided to become a singer after I saw singer Rain dancing. It was as if the light was shining behind him, and I wanted to glow like him,” said Lee.

When he first told his plan to his parents, they didn’t support him. But he got into JYP Entertainment through an audition, and finally got to meet Rain in person.

“When Rain stepped into a studio to teach me dancing, I saw that light glowing around him,” Lee said.

“Sometimes, I wish I could have a normal life like my fellow friends, but I believe that if one has to achieve something, one has to give up on things as well.”

The Saturday broadcast of Naver V app featured Jinyoung of B1A4 playing with different kinds of slimes.

He said he often spends time with slimes as he likes the bubbly sound of them.

He took to the first slime, but kept failing making the bubbly sound. Jinyoung then gave it another shot with the second slime, which was a little problematic as well. He couldn’t hide his disappointment as the little balls that were attached to the slime continued chipping off.

In the end, Jinyoung gave up on trying to make the bubbly sound and wrapped up his slime broadcast.
