(Naver V app)
Jinyoung of boy band GOT7 announced that he got his driver’s license in the first episode of the group’s reality show “GOT7 Working Eat Holiday in Jeju” aired via Naver’s V app Wednesday.

The reality show focuses the GOT7 bandmates going on a trip to the island and running a food truck named “Sebong Elebong” in Sarabong, where they sold “Seven-star Cup Rice” and tangerine juice they had developed and prepared.

While talking about the plan for their trip to the island, it was brought up that they will need to drive themselves and Jinyoung said he got a driver’s license.

His bandmates congratulated him with Mark singing “Oppa got a driver’s license,” changing the lyrics of “Oppa’s Car” by Incredivle, Tablo and Jinusean.

“Wow you look so handsome!” Yugyeom said while looking at the photo on Jinyoung’s driver’s license. “Does that mean I look bad normally?” Jinyoung said.

Mark, however, had a different opinion on the photo saying that Jinyoung looked angry while mimicking his face from the photo.

GOT7 is currently working on new album aiming for March release. In May, the group will embark on a world tour on which it will visit North America, South America, Europe, Bangkok, Macau, Taipei, Jakarta, Singapore, Hong Kong and Seoul.

Choi Yoo-jung and Kim Do-yeon of girl group Weki Meki shared their thoughts on becoming 20 during the group’s showcase event for its second mini album “Lucky” live broadcast via Naver’s V app Wednesday.

Born in 1999 the two turned 20 years old this year -- in Korea people become a year older when year turns -- which is considered the age of an adult here.

“Nothing has changed actually,” Choi said. “(But) my mom said I look like a grown-up person as my fashion style has been changed.”

“I got my identification card but it’s a pity that I didn’t have a chance to use it,” Kim said.

“I had dreams about high-heels and my sister promised me to buy a pair. I am planning to wear it also when it’s not for a public activity,” she said.

When asked if they had anything they would like to do as an adult, Kim said she would like to watch R-rated films.

Weki Meki debuted in August as an 8-member act consisting of Choi Yoo-jung, Kim Do-yeon, Ji Su-yeon, Elly, Sei, Lua, Rina and Lucy.

Choi and Kim appeared on Mnet’s survival audition show “Produce 101” and previously debuted as members of the project girl group I.O.I, which disbanded last year after its 1-year contract expired.

JooE of girl group Momoland resolved a misunderstanding on her previous pledge in a V app video Wednesday.

In the video, which showed an interview with the group, she was asked about her previous pledge that she would give her fans an airplane ride -- as in the game a parent might play with a child -- if the group tops a music show.

“The idea first came out when it was suggested to go to an amusement park altogether (if we top a music show),” she explained. “But it was suggested that people would go around separately.”

“So I said then I will give everyone an airplane ride,” she said, raising her arms and legs to make a motion of “giving an airplane ride” usually to babies.
