With a mischievous grin on his face, he danced to the catchy number, his own take on Webstar and Young B’s song of the same title from 2006.

He told fans that during the long break, a first for the band, he has rested well, and got to do what he wanted to do, including a collaboration project and shooting a music video in the United States.

“I can’t tell you how excited and giddy I am. I don’t know how to express this, really,” he said with a hoot.

“I have prepared this for a very long time and now that I have dropped it, I am overjoyed. And also there is a zing in my heart,” said the artist.

“Did everyone have chicken noodle soup for dinner?” he asked adding that he would probably go at it the next day.

He thanked ARMY, the band’s official fandom, when they said they were so proud of him.

“I have been sitting on this single for quite some time. Actually it was supposed to be part of Hope World but was put on hold for some issues,” J-Hope explained. Hope World is a solo mixtape he released last year.

“I couldn’t let go of this track, though. How ‘Chicken Noodle Soup’ epitomizes what music I love ... It is the first song with which I learned to dance,” he said.

Being in Bangkok for KCON Thailand 2019, she said she could not go live earlier but that it was still her birthday in local time, expressing gratitude for fans who have been waiting to celebrate via V Live well past midnight.

“I already made a wish, blew a candle and ate cake but didn’t get to eat miyeokguk. And I really am craving some,” she lamented referring to a seaweed soup Koreans usually eat on their birthdays.

While she was talking, her bandmates has joined on camera one by one, and Kang Hyewon and Kwon Eunbi appeared with two small bowls, one for miyeokguk and one for nurungji, or scorched rice.

The birthday girl gave them a hug and gratefully accepted a spoonful of soup.

“I have been saving this nurungji for seven days!” said Kim Minju, asking Choi to help herself.

“This is the best birthday ever!” said Choi savoring every sip.

“It’s a little awkward taking to V Live after such long time. But please don’t tell me how long a while it has been,” he begged admitting that he feels bad.

“I just came back to the room after eating late dinner with everyone,” he told fans. They ordered room service and he had a light meal, beef noodle soup and salmon steak, he said when some fans asked about the menu.

Thank you so much for coming to the concert, said the idol reassuring fans that he is not tired.

“After going on stage, I usually am not exhausted. Rather, my tensions are high,” said Chen adding that the band will perform on the next day and will head back to Korea.

Sipping iced Americano, he asked if drinking coffee keeps anyone from sleeping. He used to find it bitter and drank juice when he went to a cafe with bandmates when he was a trainee but came to enjoy it thanks to Xiumin, he told fans.

“Yes, I miss him too,” he said nodding at the fans’ comments on Xiumin who is serving his military duty.

It has been a very long day but also a very exciting day, said Peak. He relished the fact that the major K-Pop festival was held at his hometown for the first time, as well as the chance to catch up with his fellow participants.

“I haven’t seen them in two months and they have changed quite a lot,” he said. Some literally grew up, including Nam Do-hyun who was now as tall as himself, commented the performer.

“They didn’t know I would come since they thought I was filming a drama. But how could I not be there when they came all the way from Korea?” said Peak.

“They were lined up backstage and greeting others when I walked in and they screamed when they saw me,” he told reporter Hong Dam-young.

He also was amazed how powerful and dynamic all the K-Pop artists were on stage. It seemed like they, with their fans, were giving out the energy to each other, he said.
