Divided into two teams, the older four versus the younger three, they began rounds of the game.

Jimin and Suga were chosen to try out the game. After a short experience of riding skateboards, both admitted that they were dizzy.

“This will give me motion sickness. I feel like throwing up,” said Suga.

Jungkook and V thoroughly enjoyed their trial, while J-Hope was extremely terrified of a mock roller coaster ride.

For the first round, Jin and V tried their hand at a car race filled with obstacles, including a helicopter shooting from above. After a shaky start, Jin came in first, earning the first win for his team.

J-Hope and Jungkook took over the wheel for the next round and went through a very similar scenario.

The youngest member was a little dumbfounded after getting beaten at the last minute but coolly congratulated J-Hope, saying, “I can’t beat you when it comes to driving.”

“Finally it is open! Please come and check out. And also subscribe and click ‘Like,’” he asked fans.

“Oh, and lest you should forget, please keep an eye out for my showcase, my first as a solo artist, on July 25,” added the performer.

The former Wanna One member has released a teaser of the music video for his first single as a solo artist, “What Are You Up To,” the lead track from the EP “Color on Me.” The EP also includes “Intro,” “Color,” “Horizon,” and “I Hope.”

Preorders for the debut EP have topped 450,000 two days before the official release, according to Kang’s parent company, K Connect Entertainment.

IZ*ONE treats itself to late-night dessert

Wondering what no-sugar-added yogurt would taste like, the four members from the 12-piece girl group began the segment.

“I have brought this,” said Lee Chaeyeon, opening a container she had brought all the way from Korea.

Kim Chaewon got a sniff of what was inside and almost choked, asking what the vinegar-like smell was.

“It is jocheong,” said Lee, opening the brown rice syrup and adding it to her bowl of yogurt. “Recommended by my (oriental medicinal) doctor,” she added solemnly.

Kwon Eunbi scooped up a spoonful of fruit jelly to sweeten her yoghurt despite bandmates’ warning that it would undermine the benefit of the sugar-free dairy product prepared by Chaeyeon.

“It’s been such a long while since I am doing this solo, and I can’t look at the camera,” said the fourth-youngest member of the nine-piece act, admitting that he was so nervous that he was stuttering.

“I’ve been monitoring other bandmates but it seemed so easy for them,” said Han with an awkward smile.

To help himself out, Han put on songs from his playlist and suggested a question-and-answer session to fans.

“I am not playing this because I made it, though. You can see that someone recommended it,” he said, playing the band’s track “19.”

Answering fans’ questions, Han told them how he first learned to play guitar from his father when he was a fifth grader. “From then on, I have been mostly self-taught, looking up codes and stuff myself. But I am not that good,” he said.
