Monsta X streamed the entire Los Angeles leg of its world tour “We Are Here” on V Live on Saturday, giving fans a rare opportunity to enjoy the show from afar.

The seven-piece group kicked off the concert with “Shoot Out” before powering through a packed set list, including “DRAMARAMA” and “Alligator,” for nearly three hours.

Kihyun was praised both at the venue and in the chatroom for performing despite suffering a rib injury. Though seated at times, his presence was fully felt as he explained to the audience that he wanted to keep the promise he made to fans.

Things took an emotional turn during the rendition of “By My Side.” As the track saw the show come to an end, some fans got teary-eyed, prompting bandmates to say, “Don’t cry.”

Despite having to pay to view the show, many fans tuned in, with over 25 million hearts given to the concert and over 22,000 messages written during the show.

Lisa and Rose took to V Live to share some big news with fans on Saturday. After nearly five minutes, the two finally said that Lisa’s cat Luca had a new daughter.

“When it reaches five minutes, we are going to show you guys a very, very big surprise,” said Rose, keeping the cat a secret at the beginning of the broadcast.

In the run-up to the big reveal, Lisa brought Luca into the frame before holding up a newborn kitten as the two said in excitement, “This is Luca’s daughter.”

“We are grandmas now. Grandmas,” Lisa said jokingly.

Rose also looked back on the time when she and Lisa had introduced Luca to fans at the same spot, drawing a connection between the two cats’ history.

Lisa had put a great deal of thought into naming the kitten. Meanwhile, Lily has made her Instagram debut on Jennie’s account.

Three Astro members, JinJin, San-ha and Rocky, got together to livestream mukbang, an online broadcast during which a host eats food and interacts with viewers.

The bandmates, who wore T-shirts in three different colors, seemed rather hungry. Sunday afternoon’s menu was spicy chicken and a stew. While the members enjoyed the food, they also made sure to ask viewers whether they’d eaten as well.

When viewers asked whether the food was good, Rocky asked the other two if they were enjoying the food, to which they both said, “It’s yummy.”

San-ha also asked fans what they were up to on a Sunday. “Did you guys go somewhere on your day off? What are you doing guys?”
The trio ended the livestream by telling viewers to have a nice lunch.
