“As the weather heats up, a growing number of people will want to enjoy going for a drive. Feeling the cool breeze and listening to good songs, it’s the best,” said the idol, who has been seen at the wheel in many of his vlog postings.

The first was his own single “UN Village,” a recent release that’s perfect for a nighttime drive, according to Baekhyun. The rhythm and blues love song is one of the main tracks from his first solo EP, “City Lights.”

He also recommended The Ray’s “Monaka.” “The bobbling sounds are so appealing and make me feel better whenever I hear it,” he said.

“I really must look serious … especially to Mark and Jackson. I think of myself as a funny guy who pretends to be serious,” said Jinyoung.

“You sound funny and upbeat, so talking to you is fun, but my voice and tone as well as my appearance turn everything into a documentary,” said the singer/actor, sending Yugyeom into a burst of laughter.

“He is funny, but most people don’t know it. He throws small inklings of jokes and enjoys watching others make the most of those,” said the younger bandmate.

The pair went on to talk about their private lives, asking each other what their homes looked like. Yugyeom, who lives with his brother, asked if Jinyoung got lonely living on his own.

“I am not prone to loneliness,” said Jinyoung.

“Well, I really don’t like being alone,” said Yugyeom. “Which is why I usually share a room with Mark when we are on tours. I hate to admit it, but I actually am scared of sleeping alone,” he said.

“I’ve mostly stayed at home and been catching up on sleep,” said the singer, telling fans he was shifting gears and coming out of hiatus mode.

At fans’ urging, Kim sang the theme song from “Different Dreams,” a historical TV drama about espionage that wrapped up last week.

“I was given the song on the previous day for the recording and had to cram it into my head. And the style is quite different from what I’ve been doing,” he said.

Not only was it his first soundtrack project, said Kim, but the drama also commemorated the 100th anniversary of the March First Movement, making it all the more meaningful.

The female idol group’s official merchandise will go on sale Aug. 3-25, online and at temporary stores in Seoul, Tokyo and Osaka.

The teaser clip suggested that the goods will have a tropical theme. To the tune of balmy background music, a candy-colored banner that reads “Hawaii” appeared with palm trees and parrots. The scene then changed to an underwater view full of big fish and small.

Twice was spotted in Hawaii last month, and fans could only speculate as to whether they were on vacation or making a music video. It turns out they filmed an exclusive entertainment program for Japanese streaming station Abema TV, which will air three nights in a row starting this Friday.

The band will release its fourth and fifth Japanese singles, “Happy Happy” and “Breakthrough,” on July 17 and 24, respectively.
