Starring: BTS, Oneus, GOT7, IZ*ONE


Having just wrapped up an epic show in Paris, V and J-Hope of BTS looked back on the group’s monthlong world tour via V Live.

The 30-minute broadcast, which took place in V’s hotel room in Paris, kicked off with the two bandmates greeting fans with a Korean meal on the table.

“This is Taehyung’s room, and I hear some classical music playing,” said J-Hope.

V explained that he has recently been listening to the whole soundtrack from Oscar-winning gay coming-of-age film “Call Me by Your Name,” which he had recently watched on Netflix.

After talking about their drink preferences, the two reminisced on the act’s recent show at Stade de France, which was part of its ongoing world tour and the last stop in Europe before returning to Korea. The concert was full of surprises and excitement, as it featured pop star Halsey, who performed “Boy With Luv” with the group.

“Everyone’s tension was so high. Since we didn’t have to save our strength, everyone went crazy,” said V.

He also said that he was greatly impressed by Paris fans’ foot stomping -- part of their way of showing support for the group.

J-Hope also expressed his love for fans who came to the act’s Paris show, saying, “Paris was so interesting and passionate. We’ve been abroad since May, and we are going back to Korea tomorrow.”

“We also didn’t miss Korean food that much during this tour, as we had a lot of it,” he added.

Oneus gives casual performance of ‘Twilight’


Rookie act Oneus danced to its new single “Twilight” in casual outfits. The stripped-down performance video featured the five bandmates clad in comfortable black pants and white-and-pink shirts in the group’s RBW studio.

Touted as a well-rounded act with ample talent in performing, singing and songwriting, Oneus debuted with first EP “Light Us” in January and dropped second EP “Raise Us,” with lead track “Twilight,” at the end of May. “Twilight” is a rhythmic, dreamy future dance track coupled with powerful choreography.

Behind-scenes footage of GOT7’s ‘Eclipse’ video


Behind-the-scenes footage from GOT7’s music video for its newest release “Eclipse” has been released via the act’s V Live channel. The clip features Yugyeom, Jinyoung and Youngjae talking about their individual scenes and the overall topic of the album.

Asked about his thoughts on darkness, a main theme of “Eclipse,” Yugyeom said, “I’m more of a ‘light’ person. But I think darkness is somewhat necessary when working on music, practicing or recording.

“Since our new album is our first record in a long time, we put more effort into it, and we are very serious about it.”

The song fronts the group’s album “Spinning Top: Between Security & Insecurity,” which features six tracks co-written by the bandmates, with Yugyeom, Jinyoung, Youngjae and BamBam also credited on tracks.
