“Oh My Halloween!” by Seventeen


Thirteen-member K-pop boy band Seventeen threw a fun Halloween party for fans in one of the highlights of Wednesday’s star-studded V Live lineup.

All 13 bandmates dressed in costumes for the themed broadcast.

Band leader S.coups, who hosted the 50-minute show, masqueraded as the titular creepy doll from the “Chucky” series of horror movies, while Minghao dressed up as Jack Skellington of “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” Mingyu as the titular character of “Edward Scissorhands,” Jeonghan as a zombie, Joshua as the Joker from the “Batman” series, Jun as the Grim Reaper, Hoshi as a nutcracker, Wonwoo as Dracula and DK as Pennywise from “It.”

Vernon, Seungkwan, Dino and Woozi opted for cute and adorable characters: Waldo from the “Where’s Waldo?” books, the titular character of Japanese comic series “Anpanman,” Pikachu from “Pokemon” and one of the “Teletubbies.”

“The company suggested I go for Po, the red Teletubby,” Woozi said, referring to his agency Pledis. “I think it’s because of my nickname.” He is sometimes called “vobo” by bandmates, as the vocal team boss. Other bandmates also shared why they chose their costumes, before moving on to party games.

During the broadcast, Naver recognized the act for amassing 3 million followers on V Live with a ghost jumping onto the stage to present them a V-shaped trophy.

“I remember the day we first did V Live. Thank you Carats. It’s all thanks to you,” Dino said, using the group’s personal name for its fans.

Seventeen ended the party with a live performance of hit track “Oh My.”

NCT 127 euphoric over ‘Music Bank’ win


NCT 127, the Seoul-based subunit of NCT, took fans backstage at KBS’ “Music Bank,” where the act bagged its fourth music show win with “Regular.”

The clip, apparently filmed on Oct. 26 when the weekly live show aired, was unveiled on V Live on Wednesday.

It vividly captured moments of thrill, joy and happiness, filming the bandmates as they walked to the stage for the announcement of the winner and then returned with a trophy. “Wow. We won. This is real,” the group said backstage.

Taeyong, the act’s leader and one of its rappers, thanked the staff at SM Entertainment, family and fans for the honor. The group shouted “NCTzens! NCTzens!” in expression of their gratitude for fans’ continued support.

NCT 127 released its first full album, “Regular-Irregular,” on Oct. 12. It previously topped three other major K-pop chart shows, including Mnet’s “M! Countdown.”

GOT7 BamBam cozy at home


GOT7’s BamBam took to V Live from his home here for a lunchtime solo broadcast.

“I don’t usually do V Live around this time of the day,” said the Thai member of the K-pop boy band, adding he had just returned from Japan the previous night.

BamBam answered questions from fans, took them around his house upon their request and shared some of his favorite songs.

“I am into this song right now. Let’s listen together,” he said, playing “Let Me Know” by American indie pop band LANY.
