BTS released its third full-length album “Love Yourself; Tear” and shared their thoughts on the new album in a live broadcast held via Naver’s V app Friday.

While talking about its lead track “Fake Love,” V showed his confidence saying that the fans could look forward to it.

“I don’t boast about our songs usually but I think this song is really good,” Jimin said. “I thought this would be a hit,” Suga agreed.

“If you say ‘Blood, Sweat & Tears’ was sentimental, ‘Fake Love’ is extremely sentimental,” Jimin said.

“I think he (Jimin) expressed that well,” RM said. “It is at the extreme of BTS’ darkness but it’s quite different.”

BTS is currently in the US to attend this year’s Billboard Music Awards, slated for Sunday in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand. It is to be aired live on NBC.

The group will perform “Fake Love” for the first time during the awards show.

Actress Park Shin-hye updated her fans with how she had been in a live broadcast held via Naver’s V app Friday.

In the broadcast a fan asked, “Don’t you go to the forest anymore?” referring to tvN’s variety show “Little House in the Forest.”

“I no longer go to the forest. I’m done with the filming,” she said. “But there are more episodes to be broadcast. Please expect a lot.”

When asked when she would head to Spain to film tvN’s new drama series “Memories of the Alhambra,” she said, “Right, I will leave soon. There’s not many days left.”

“But I have a lot to do before that so my heart is pounding and I’m so flustered. Still I am preparing hard,” she said.

“I am going to play the role of Jung Hee-ju. It will be again different from the characters I played before,” she said. “I will soon begin the filming. The drama will air in the second half of this year. Please expect a lot.”

Co-starring actor Hyun Bin, “Memories of the Alhambra” is written by scriptwriter Song Jae-jung who is recognized for writing fantasy-romance series such as “Nine: Nine Time Travels,” “W” and “Queen In-hyun’s Man.”

Alhambra, which means “red palace” in Arabic, is a palace located in the city of Granada, a popular tourist destination.

Singer Kim Dong-han of now disbanded boy band JBJ communicated with his fans while eating pork barbeque in a live broadcast held via Naver’s V app Friday.

In the broadcast, titled “What are you doing now? Come in quickly! It’s lonely to eat alone,” the singer enjoyed barbecue alone.

“I didn’t eat a single meal today,” the singer said showing his expectations for the upcoming meal. “It’s my first time having barbeque alone. My skill of eating alone is getting better every day.”

Kim had appeared on a web variety show series “Honbab-stagram” alongside his JBJ bandmate Kim Sang-gyun, which showed celebrities eating alone. The word “Honbab” refers to eating alone in Korea.

The singer appeared on the second season of Mnet’s survival audition show “Produce 101” last year. He failed to secure a spot in the final 11-member group, but proved popular thanks to plenty of public exposure during the show, which led to his debut as a member of JBJ.

The group recently wrapped up its seventh month of promotional activities and disbanded.

Kim is scheduled to debut as a solo singer in June.
