He began the segment lip-synching and dancing to “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” and asking fans, “Who wants to play with me today?”

“Why did I begin streaming at 11 p.m.? I am bored,” said the performer.

“I’m in Kobe after a fan meeting. I ate dinner -- a steak, the city’s delicacy -- and I wanted to meet you looking fresh and fine, still with my makeup and hair intact,” said the main dancer of the seven-piece boy band.

“I have been thinking, up until now, my V Live shows have been quiet and calming so that you can drift off to a good night’s sleep afterward, but today I am hyper alert. Forget about going to bed, I won’t let you!” he said.

Firmly denying that he had been drinking, Donghyuk confessed, “After going onstage or meeting fans like today, my adrenaline is still on, and my heart is beating so hard. If I go straight to bed, it feels kind of weird and I wanted to feel it longer instead.”

The members were belting out “Did You Even Love Me,” a song by popular indie band Jannabi, when the camera was turned on.

“What are we here for everyone?” asked Seungmin and Han. In reply, Woojin and Lee Know howled, “We are here for a fan signing event!”

Felix joined the rest wheeling in on a chair, and each bandmate took turns sharing his happiness at being back in the port city.

“It’s been a while and this is how I feel,” began Han before going on to sing the chorus of the trending 2016 song that goes “who set my heart on fire.”

“I’m going to make it very fun,” said Woojin, “with Stay (fans),” echoed Lee Know.

“I hope today will be happy with Stay,” said Seungmin while Felix smiled happily.

In the second round of games for the pajama party, the performer and friends were paired wearing blindfolds and had to guess the object, ranging from a squawking toy chicken and a toothbrush to seaweed, placed between their cheeks.

Xiumin’s friend Daeyoung beat the singer at guessing and earned the right to smack him with a toy hammer.

In the final round, they were all divided into two teams to figure out jumbled directions. Xiumin’s team lost 3-1 and had to treat the winner like a king.

Then they had a midnight snack talking about the fun they had during the day.

The six members of the nation’s longest-surviving idol group looked back on one of the most significant moments of their career: winning the grand prize from a major annual music award show in 2004. It was their first since they teamed up in 1998.

“We always were so close to the top prize so we wanted to take a shot at it on our own,” said Eric Mun on severing ties with S.M. Entertainment.

Even after hearing the announcement onstage, “I couldn’t believe it. And receiving such recognition made me think it was a good choice to have become a singer,” said Lee Min-woo.

“I think I was the only one who cried,” said Andy Lee before adding, “I hope there is no video from the scene.”
