BTS had a tiring trip to Canada, even though it was only an overnight stay. After their visit to Niagara Falls, the artists went grocery shopping and soon realized they weren’t dressed for the frigid evening weather.

In the 70th episode of “Run BTS!” the band members decide to buy some warm clothes and play a game to decide who should pay. In the end, Jungkook is chosen -- much to the delight of RM, Jin and Jimin.

“It’s OK, Jungkook is rich,” said Jimin.

But Jungkook won the next round of the game, which involved guessing the capitals of European countries. He jumped up and down in circles in the supermarket as he shared his joy with V.

RM, not believing his answer -- “Wien” for Austria -- was wrong, searched online for proof.

“Look up Belgium, too. The capital city may actually be ‘Waffle,’” someone joked. (That was Jin’s answer.)

At a nearby clothing store, each winner got the hoodie the youngest band member had promised. Jimin sneaked in a hat too. J-Hope, who seemed uninterested in shopping and had not even played the game, found a comfy pair of slippers.

Jungkook kindly made both extra purchases.

Fans waited eagerly outside the venue, welcoming the band with signs -- some even written in Korean. Inside, before jumping onstage, each of the nine members punched a stamp that said “NCT 127 World Tour NEO CITY USA -- The Origin” along with the date.

During the sold-out three-hour show, the NCT subunit sang and danced to 23 songs, from hits “Cherry Bomb” and “TOUCH” to the new single “Superhuman.” The audience sang along and rewarded its idols with fan chants.

The tour will take the singers to Chicago, San Jose, Los Angeles, Vancouver and Toronto. They will come out with a new EP, “We Are Superhuman,” May 24.

“I feel great since it seems to me that the group choreography was done in perfect harmony. I want to stay in this spirit and do my best for tomorrow’s taping,” she said after finishing the shoot.

The next day, getting ready for another group dance, Sana mumbled to herself. “Is this the right spot for me?” she wondered aloud.

With a cheeky grin, Jeongjyeon called her a dummy.

Between takes, Sana was full of mischief and charm -- exchanging hugs and mock-punches with Jihyo and messing around with Chaeyoung, who gave Sana a pat on the bottom.

For her individual photo shoot, Sana changed into a pink Chanel that exposed her bare midriff. Her pastel makeup went well with a candy-themed set full of sweets and desserts. When the staff commented that she looked even prettier, she replied, “Do you know what the secret is? It’s the power of lighting.”
