Seventeen goes live on eve of “You Made My Dawn" release

Thirteen-member K-pop boyband Seventeen aired a special V Live broadcast on the eve of the release of its sixth mini-album “You Made My Dawn” on Sunday.

With members Seungkwan and Hoshi as emcees, bandmates shared the story behind the upcoming record, which they said is filled with songs that suit the cold season.

“We are about to make a comeback after last July’s release ‘You Make My Day,’” Seungkwan said.

One of the six tracks on the upcoming album, “Getting Closer,” was unveiled already.

“We premiered ‘Getting Closer’ at MAMA (Mnet Asia Music Awards held in December in Hong Kong.) I will never forget the enthusiastic reactions from audience members,” said S. Coups.

Woozi said the choreography was so hard that the sole of his feet hurt.

“When the moves are really hard, we get pain in thighs and carves, but this time even the sole of my feet ached,” he said.

Woozi introduced “Home,” the title track, as a warming song that expresses one’s gratitude to a lover for bringing light to the darkness and promising to be his or her home.

“It is a song that suits winter,” said the singer who composed and wrote lyrics for the track.

BTS Jimin learns about cabbage’s cooling effect

BTS member Jimin learning from a fan about cabbage’s cooling effect during a livestream was V Live editors’ pick of the day Sunday.

Near midnight Saturday into early Sunday, Jimin livestreamed for 47 minutes talking mostly about his first self-written song “Promise.”

V Live editors re-introduced the first 4 minutes from the start of the show as Sunday’s V Pick clip, in which the K-pop singer greeted fans and said he was in Singapore for a concert.

“It was so hot even before the concert started. While rehearsing, I was worried that fans, in this heat and amongst so many people and cheering for us, might faint. I have seen many faint because it is physically hard,” he said.

Then the singer read a comment from a viewer that cabbage could be their rescue.

“People use cabbage in baseball stadiums in Busan? Really? I have to check this out,” a curious Jimin said. He then searched the portal and found it to be true.

He shared what he found on the internet; Cabbage have a cooling effect and tucking a chilled cabbage leaf under one’s cap is a known way to beat the heat.

In fact, the South Korean Baseball Organization in 2005 banned the use of cabbage by players after a pitcher’s cap fell off during a game, revealing the vegetable on top of his head.

“I should put a cabbage leaf on the head of my bandmates at the backstage,” he added.
