After filling their stomachs with steak and spaghetti prepared by Suga and Jin, the rest of the members played games to choose who would clean up.

Jungkook was the first to fail. Jimin confidently began the second round only to find himself blurting out the wrong number.

Jimin rolled on the floor laughing at himself. When he recovered, he challenged RM to a word chain game and managed to win.

This led to a series of challenges among members. In a dramatic turn of events, Jimin dared to try his luck by declaring that he would swap his top position with J-Hope, the one with the worst score, over a bottle cap flicking contest and lost.

The next morning Jimin paid the price for losing by going into the water. “It’s not that cold,” he told Jin who kindly offered to join. However, the oldest member, clad in cute pajamas, realized that he had been tricked the moment he put his feet in the water. “I can’t feel my thigh,” laughed Jimin.

Zooming in on each of the seven members, the trailer ends with darkness taking over a bright sky, visualizing the theme of the lead song, “Eclipse.” Enigmatic synthesizer sounds heighten anticipation for the electronic dance number co-written and co-composed by leader JB. Producer Park Jin-young also participated in writing the song.

The bandmates participated in songwriting for all seven tracks.

The boy band begins its world tour “Keep Spinning” from June 15 with two concerts in Seoul followed by performances in 16 cities around the world. Its parent company, JYP Entertainment, has joined hands with Live Nation and may expand the scope of the tour.

“It’s been a while,” began the performer sporting a huge metallic pair of glasses.

When he realized it had only been two days, he marveled at how fast time passes, “It has already been five months since I turned 20.”

Thanking a fan who had switched from Netflix to his livestream, Jeno said he is also a Netflix subscriber.

“I recently watched ‘Bit Match’ since Boa was in it. I actually have watched almost all I could find interesting and am looking for something new. Do you have any recommendations?” he asked.

Jeno also asked if anyone had seen the television program featuring him and Jaemin in Indonesia.

“We have tried to keep it very quiet but we were seen at the airport on our way back,” he said sheepishly of a visit to the Southeast Asian country, where they had participated in Good Neighbors’ NGO activity helping children in need.

“Many have been wondering what we did there but it was rather awkward for us to say afterward,” he added.

“There are so many ‘killing’ parts that I will need more than 24 hours to list them all,” she said. “The intro part is one of my picks where all of us line up and begin the dance. And when Tzuyu sings ‘the star the star’ we actually form a star shape with her in the middle,” she said.

Between shooting group dance choreography, Dahyun practiced her moves but did not forget to wink and pose for the camera whenever she could.

For her individual shot, the rapper was seen lying down flat on a metal sheet with her long blond hair cascading around her face. “Am I shooting a shampoo commercial?” she said laughing.

“You may not even blink for 3 1/2 minutes (for my part), as there are too many good scenes to miss,” said Dahyun grinning.
