X1, a newly formed boy band of 11, went live Saturday night to chat with fans.

The bandmates first appeared with a flower filter on, showing the blooms on the side of their heads, before switching to butterflies.
Kicking off the livestream with a Q&A session, they answered a string of questions from fans.

One fan asked about their phone case, which features a big picture of a baby’s face. That turned out to be an old picture of one of the band members.

When asked to share a funny episode from living together, the band talked about having to share their bathroom.
“Because we have to share the same bathroom, there is a competition,” the bandmates said with laughter, with some running to use the shower first.

Fans continue to zero in on the personal and asked under what name they saved each other’s numbers on their phones.

There was a moment of awkwardness when the bandmates said that they put the name “X1” in front of each other’s names, which seemed to have rankle others, as it could come across as being nothing more than just work friends to some.

While sitting on the couch, the conversation kept flowing with, Dohyun named as the one with the biggest hands among the bunch.

KARD reacts to “Dumb Litty” video

The band KARD sat down at a table to watch the video for the group’s latest single, “Dumb Litty.”

It was safe to say the four-piece group was happy with the outcome, though the bandmates sounded slightly nervous at the beginning.

“Did you watch the trailer?” Jiwoo asked the other three, to which J.Seph responded, “I think everyone looked good (in the video).”

Wearing one side of the earphones each, the band was soon immersed in the video, delivering compliments to one another like “That was good,” or just “Whoa.”

At the height of excitement, they screamed in awe in reaction to the graphic work done to elevate the overall quality, including the computer-generated flowers.

“Is this how fans feel when they watch it?” Jiwoo posed.

B.M sounded more than content as he made a bold statement.

“Out of all the videos to date, this one is the coolest yet,” he said with confidence.

Stray Kids’ Hyunjin soldiers on despite technical difficulties

Hyunjin of Stray Kids’s broadcasting on V Live came to an abrupt end due to technical difficulties, but he was soon back online, assuring fans he would never leave them without saying goodbye.

The singer was back and on form as he took on the role as a DJ and asked viewers which song to play for them.

While “Letter” by singer-songwriter Paul Kim was playing, he casually spoke to fans and clarified that it wasn’t his battery that was the issue, but a poor internet connection.

As fans asked him to stay longer, he said he would play just two songs. The first part of Sundays streams went on for nearly one hour and 40 minutes, racking up over 250,000 views during which he ate a wide range of dishes, including fried chicken.

While requests for a longer broadcast continue to flood in, he drew the line after the second song, saying he read that some fans needed to go to work and he himself had a lesson to attend.

Hyunjin, however, kept their hopes high, as he promised more broadcasts to come in the future.

Oneus goes live from backstage

Oneus broadcast on V Live from backstage Saturday night, after a special live show ahead of the release of the group’s third EP, “Fly With Us.”

(Naver's V Live)
The six-piece group is releasing the new record at the end of this month, and in celebration of the release, the group held a small placard that read, “Fly With Oneus,” referencing the group’s name as well as the new album.

Fans soon took notice of their new hairdos, with one viewer saying, “Those hair colors suit you guys.”

It was the first time they showed off their new looks, with four out of the six going for bold colors like bright red, blue or purple.
Fashion talk aside, the group struck a serious note as they looked back on their performances.

While they were happy to show what they had prepared, the group said they felt they didn’t show everything they wanted to, including due to an outfit malfunction.

Briefly touching on the new record, the bandmates said it would be difficult to choose a favorite track, as they all the tracks were so good.

Before the group went offline, they struck a pose in their purple stage outfits and shouted “Thank you.”

Oneus’ third mini album, “Fly With Us” is out Sept. 30.
