“Run BTS!” takes place in Korean public bathhouse

The latest episode of “Run BTS!” -- a web variety show featuring the wildly popular K-pop boy band -- takes place in an authentic Korean spa.

And the bandmates are in proper attire -- the uniform T-shirts, comfy shorts and cute head towels.

“We are here to have a bath. V Live has allowed to scrub off the dirt from our body,” said V at the start of the 61st episode, unveiled via V Live on Tuesday.

Then the members were told they were supposed to play games, as usual, with the winner getting a prize and the loser getting a penalty.

The first round took place in the changing room.

The second was inside a dry sauna.

Two members were presented with a quiz on new acronyms and abbreviations that young people in Korea use on the internet and social media.

The first player to get the answer would escape. The loser would have to play another round against a new opponent.

When the 61st episode ended, a clueless Jimin was sweating in the sauna when his new contender, J-Hope, came in.

Outside, RM and Jin, who had been in the sauna already, warned Suga and V, waiting outside for their turn, that they would soon be “living” there.

Astro says heartfelt thank you to fans after winning music show

The six-member K-pop boy band Astro went live Tuesday, right after its first-ever win on a TV music chart show.

The act took the top honor on “The Show,” from SBS MTV, which had aired live earlier in the evening, with the track “All Night.”

“Since our debut and even before, from our trainee days, we have been working hard for this day. To reach the No. 1 spot. Aroha got us there,” said Rocky on V Live, referring to the group’s fan base.

He was the first to address the viewers, and soon the other band members took their turns.

Sanha expressed his gratitude to his parents.

When Astro won, he said, he’d been overwhelmed and had forgotten to mention his family.

The bandmates tried not to cry during the livestream, saying they had cried too much on the air. But some, including Cha Eun-woo, couldn’t help it.

Having debuted under Fantagio in 2016, the band released its first studio album Jan. 16. Titled “All Light,” it is fronted by the track “All Night.”

The video, three minutes and 10 seconds long, features the act’s 13 members executing perfectly synchronized moves in a dimly lit dance studio.

It came just a few days after the release of a similar video for “Home,” the album’s title track.
