“We have just finished our concert in Chicago today, the third after two in Los Angeles, and I have missed you,” said the artist. “I thought quite a lot what I should do … and since the internet here seemed fairly fast, I decided to take another shot at ‘Maple Story,’” he said.

Before jumping into the game, Jin went through the live feed and was amazed at the speed at which fans were joining the livestream, with the number reaching 12 million in less than seven minutes.

“It was quite chilly here today, and I could see my own breath. I will take a bath and cold medicine though, and I think I will be fine,” he assured fans.

The idol seemed in awe recounting the atmosphere of concerts filled with “such large audiences screaming for us and dazzling lights.”

“Our ‘Idol’ has been remixed into faster EDM version as well, and when the intro begins, fans seem to forget about us and start dancing to the music,” he said chuckling.

The vocalist also expressed contentment with the band’s new set of microphones. “We each got our own reflecting our personal tastes. Jimin has a gold one and J-Hope got one with a sky blue mic with glitters. Mine is pink and the rhinestones must have acupressure effects and it won’t slip!” he said.

“We are at the practice studio in the basement of S.M. Entertainment, where countless famous performers invested sweat and toil,” said Renjun appearing from behind Jaemin.

“This is a sacred place and you have to pay 10,000 won per step you take,” Renjun joked, joining Jeno, Chenle and Jisung.

Jaemin announced that it would be a “freestyle” segment this time, and the five bandmates launched into a jumble of conversations in twos and threes, commenting on each other’s recent posts on social media and playing silly word games.

Some fans finally interrupted, saying “Have fun with us, too!” The bandmates then resumed going through the live feed.

Jeno seemed overjoyed when some commented on the return of his glasses. “Yes, everyone. They are back! Those squashed by Jisung,” he said showing the pair to the camera. Jisung appeared mortified, and Jaemin explained that the younger member had been working on choreography when he stepped on the glasses.

“We are getting ready to fly to Manila,” began Seungmin from his seat in a plane. He stealthily zoomed in on I.N sitting several seats away. When the youngest member spotted him, he quickly turned the camera away, focusing instead on Hyunjin.

“I am so looking forward to going to Manila since I heard that the largest number of Stay will be there,” said Hyunjin. Stay refers to Stray Kids’ fandom.

Seungmin resumed taping the segment by letting fans see his breakfast in the Philippine capital.

“We have just ordered room service … this is the most exciting moment,” he said, opening a bowl of instant noodles.

Before the final rehearsal, a day before meeting fans, the bandmates had a blast playing a traditional game with five marbles. Changbin dominated the game, while first-timer Bang Chan ended the two-on-two match with the finishing stroke. Seungmin, despite having shown calm tenacity, lost against Lee Know and had to treat everyone to ice cream.

“The group choreography is very stylish, and the parts where all nine of us dance together may be the highlight of the music video,” said Mina during a break.

During her individual shot, her beauty was on full display. Standing in front of full-length windows, the band’s main dancer moved slowly and leisurely, dancing while looking at her own reflection.

“I quit ballet after 11 years but after my debut, there have been quite a lot of opportunities to show ballet moves. Should I take it up again?” said Mina, breaking into a wide smile.

Looking at footage of herself clad in a short black dress, the 22-year old said, “It doesn’t look like me. Seeing everyone in all black is unfamiliar, unlike us, but in a good way.”
