The nine bandmates of K-pop boy band Stray Kids talked about what they would have become if they had not debuted as singers, in a live broadcast held via Naver’s V app Tuesday.

“If not the Stray Kids, I wanted to become a kindergarten teacher or a social worker. I do love kids,” I.N said.

“If not a singer, I wanted to become a photographer or (work in) a job related to the law, especially a prosecutor,” Seungmin said. When his bandmates asked him whether he was influenced by his father, Seungmin nodded to the affirmative.

Hyunjin said he would like to be an interior designer, while Felix floated the idea of becoming a songwriter. Han opted for composer and Bang Chan said he would become an actor.

The Stray Kids are the finalists from the Mnet’s competition of the same name that aired last year. In the program, the singers showed off not only their vocal and dance skills, but also their ability to write and produce songs and design their own concepts for the stage.

Stray Kids released debut album “I Am Not” in March.

Luna of f(x)

Luna of girl group f(x) introduced her new track “Night Reminiscin’” in a live broadcast held via Naver’s V app Tuesday.

“Some may feel happy (to listen to the song) while some may seek comfort from it when they need someone to share their sadness and sad days,” she said.

The singer participated in composing and penning the track. In the broadcast, she revealed how she came up with the song.

“I agonized about what I really wanted to do. Then I started to hate that even though the morning was coming, I could not go to sleep. So I started to write my diary,” she said.

“I hoped (for time) to rather stop than repeat. I thought it would be better if the morning comes when I finally find my happiness,” she said. “I wanted to make a song based on the diary entry I wrote then.”

“I wanted to be sympathetic, and I hoped (people) would sympathize with my song,” she said.

During the broadcast, the f(x) singer also revealed the difficulty she faced while filming the music video.

“The director asked me never to shed tears, but instead to restrain the emotion before shedding tears, so I tried not to cry,” she said.

Having debuted in 2009 with girl group f(x), Luna started her solo career in May 2016 with her first mini album, “Free Somebody.”

Jeong Da-bin

Actress Jeong Da-bin communicated with fans in a live broadcast held via Naver’s V app Tuesday.

The 18-year-old currently stars in SBS drama “Should We Kiss First?” as Son Yi-deun, the daughter of male lead Son Moo-han, played by Kam Woo-sung.

When asked what kind of role she would like to play as an adult, the young actress said, “I wanted to play a very bad villain.”

“Yi-deun is not a villain, but I guess it is the most similar role among those I played to the role I would like to play,” she said. “But I thought I want to play various roles. I didn’t really decide what kind of roles I exactly (would) like to play as an adult.”

Starring Kam and Kim Sun-a, “Should We Kiss First?” airs every Monday and Tuesday at 10 p.m.

Naver’s real-time broadcasting app V allows fans to interact with their favorite K-pop stars through live broadcasts. The app is available for Android and iOS. For more information, visit http://www.vlive.tv.
