The 13-piece boy band came out with a new single seven months after “Home.”

Everyone has been busy, and Dogyeom in particular debuted in a musical as the lead in “Excalibur,” said the bandmates applauding him.

The prologue video hints at the new aspect of the band and signals how it will extend itself from now on, explained Woozi watching the clip again with everyone.

All the dance moves were impromptu, said Hosi proudly while Dogyeom pointed at the scene where each one stands on pillars saying that it is his personal favorite.

“We look the best when all 13 of us are together,” said Mingyu and everyone agreed.

“It also is amazing that our fans can guess who we are just by looking at our silhouettes,” they added.

“I missed you and wanted to say hi,” said Yugyeom telling fans that he had stayed in the hotel all day. His regular roommate on tour Mark joined after a shower and the pair caught up with fans.

Fans commented that they liked “Superman” from the band’s fourth EP in Japanese, released on July 31. “I like it, too,” said Mark adding that he finds the use of instruments refreshing.

Some fans asked them to speak in English as well as their own languages and Yugyeom answered that his English is improving.

“It is getting better, right? Maybe a little bit from the first time we went to the US?” he asked Mark who kindly said everyone is trying.

“Watching dramas in English is quite helpful, I think,” said Yugyeom offering a piece of advice.

“We actually began this livestream without planning,” confessed Ahn, asking Nako if she had something to say.

Ahn asked her bandmate if she has seen the newest episode of the band’s reality segment that will be aired later.

“I asked the staff and saw a clip. It includes the part we didn’t think it would have been taken from the day Chaeyeon sang. And I can’t wait for it to be uploaded,” she said, trying not to spoil the fun.

The pair also talked about the game inspired by the girl group.

“I haven’t played it yet, have you?” asked Ahn as Nako turned it on to show her progress.

As for their recent performance for a K-pop concert in Seoul, they were surprised to see so many of their fans. Keeping an eye on the concert venue through a monitor from the waiting room, Ahn honestly was not expecting to see so many fans.

“But when I got onstage, I was moved to see so many pink (light sticks),” she said.

“I went for a swim in the morning but the water was deeper than expected and I had to tiptoe when I was not swimming. But it feels good,” he said.

As for the showcase held the day before, the idol expressed gratitude for the opportunities.

“We are accumulating great experiences onstage and I am fully enjoying this ‘Unveil’ tour,” he said.

After the live performance, I.N returned to his room. After washing his face, he put on some lotion and then was about to put some hair serum only to realize that he had rubbed in on his face.

“I had just washed my face and I had to do it all over again. And the essence won’t come off easily. I must have been quite tired,” he said snorting at his own mistake.
