Haechan, Jeno, Jaemin and Renjun gathered in front of the camera reporting happily that they were coming out with a new EP titled “We Boom,” leading track for which will be “Boom.”

Then they were given six key words and a balloon with a timer that could burst at any minute.

“I have seen others playing with this and could not relate, but actually having to pass it around is really, really scary,” said Renjun trying to cover his ears and keep the balloon as far away as possible from himself.

The four bandmates went through the first round throwing up whatever comes to their mind about summer when the balloon burst in Haechan’s hand.

Haechan was speechless for a few seconds admitting quietly that his heart almost fell, sending Jeno into laughter.

The nine-piece band chatted over desserts and answered some miscellaneous questions prepared in advance.

When asked who has watched the most clips of themselves, most agreed that it was Changbin. “I monitored everything, watching videos in my bed,” he said proudly before Lee Know pointed out that Changbin looks at those focusing on himself and smiles.

As for the member who drinks the most water, Bang Chan was the unanimous pick. “Yeah, I am always drinking water,” he admitted while Hyunjin said too much water slows him down. “I like any kind of water, actually, be it an ocean or whatever,” said the leader who also swims whenever he has a chance and drinks about two liters every day. “He is Poseidon,” someone murmured softly making everyone laugh.

“It has been a short three weeks but filled with fun,” said Seungmin.

Having taken a number of different takes, especially in terms of performances, made it all the more special and meaningful, added Hyunjin.

“We had our last fan signing session for this EP today so it feels like an end to something but we are going to see each other for a long time, right?” he said.

“But it’s not over yet,” said Bambam, letting JB give more details.

“So far, we have unveiled plans for Hong Kong, Australia and Europe,” said the leader.

“We had a lot of fun today at the concert and will be returning home now,” he added.

Jackson had a hard time keeping a lid on their future timetable and Yugyeom and Jinyoung patted him on the back.

“Thank you everyone for supporting us wherever we go,” said Jackson.

“We are trying really hard to meet you in your countries around the world, and please keep checking out our upcoming schedule,” said Yugyeom and Bambam.

“We are going to Bangkok the day after tomorrow and are practicing to put on great performances,” said Aron beginning the segment.

“From there, we will begin our Asian tour ‘Segno,’” added Minhyun.

Beginning from the Thai capital on July 20, the five-piece act will hold concerts in Hong Kong, Jakarta, Singapore, Manila, Kuala Lumpur and Taipei.

Meanwhile, in time for holiday season, fans asked the band to recommend tourist spots in their respective hometowns.

Ren picked Songjeong Beach in Busan, a place with a good memory from his childhood. Baekho confessed that most of the places in Jeju Island have become too well-known making it hard for locals to come up with an original choice. The island native suggested a trick art museum as a fun photo spot.

“It is really hard to choose,” agreed Aron listing must-visit places such as In-N-Out Burger, Sunset Boulevard and Santa Monica Beach. “Don’t go into the water, though. Just take in the view,” he said.
