Idol trainee Kongthap Peak who contested in the latest season of Mnet’s “Produce X 101” showed fans his different sides, including his musical talent and language skills.

“Hello, my name is Peak from ‘Produce X 101.’ I’m from Thailand. I used to live in England for five years. I love piano. I want to be a very happy person and I want to give you guys happiness by singing, dancing, acting and everything,” the 18-year-old entertainer hopeful said, during K-pop Herald’s “Oh My Rookie” segment on Saturday.

Having already debuted as a singer in his home country, Peak said his celebrity father, who is an actor himself, is in South Korea to support him.

“I see him every day so I don’t know how famous he is. He’s cooking all the time,” Peak said when asked about his father’s celebrity status.

“Produce X 101” came to an end on Friday so Peak had just finished filming before the interview. Despite having had not much sleep, he put in his best effort and showed off his dancing skills to EXO’s Love Shot. He also played the theme song of the film “La La Land,” putting on display his all-round musical talent.

Aron from NU’EST live streamed late Saturday night, and despite his “warning” of a five o’clock shadow, the focus was on his stubble.

“It’s a bit late so I have a stubble. Hope you guys understand. I’m going to shave in the morning,” he said.

“I have no makeup on as well. I think I won’t have the stubble until next year,” the singer said shyly.

Aron looked rather relaxed while laying down on the couch after finishing the first concert of the group’s new world tour “Segno” in Bangkok.

When fans asked what he had for dinner, Aron said, “I had fish and chips and pasta. I had two dishes because I was hungry.”
“I also had Pad Thai yesterday in the dressing room and also today.

After spending nearly 30 minutes talking to fans, Aron finally stood up to go meet Minhyun who was watching Aron’s live-stream in his room.

NCT 127 has unveiled a trailer for the video of their upcoming single “Highway to Heaven” on V Live.

In the clip that has racked up over 44,000 views within the first 12 hours, bandmates of the 10-piece group donning an oversized white shirt and black trousers powered through heavily choreographed dance moves in sync on a desert road.

In another scene, the members were running on the highway against a pink sky with their unbuttoned shirts flapping in the breeze, keeping in line with the general theme of the single that is the highway.

The English version of the single was released internationally on Friday, but the full version of the video is set for release on Tuesday on multiple platforms.

The group recently wrapped up its world tour “NCT 127 WORLD TOUR NEO CITY The Origin” after the Singaporean leg on Saturday.

Pentagon released an alternative version of the music video for the new single “Humph!” on Saturday, this time focusing more on the dance performance.

The single was released on Wednesday along with the accompanying music video which sees the bandmates in school uniforms dance in various locations. However, while wearing similar clothes, the new version is shot in a way that highlights the group’s dance moves.

Without switching back and forth between various scenes, viewers were able to catch all the moves including powerful stomping and making the “X” sign with their arms during the chorus.

The video seems to have been a treat with nearly 600 fans leaving comments in support of the group.
