“The managers must be startled when the alarm goes off” (telling them she has started V Live), she said.

After finishing a two-day concert in Miyagi, she had returned to the hotel room and “did not want to move but also did not want to do nothing so I turned this on,” said the idol in pink pajamas -- part of a newly released merchandise line that resulted from collaboration between the group and Kakao, she explained.

When a fan mentioned the Monday blues, Sana suggested taking a more positive approach. Think of it as a new beginning, she said encouragingly: If you had any dampening moments or regrets, you can start over on Monday.

“Ever since we debuted, the concept of which day of the week has lost meanings to us,” added the performer. When she was a trainee, at least she had some Sundays off, but now the band is even busier on weekends.

“We have to keep practicing so that we can meet more Once (our fandom). ... Let’s do our best,” said Sana.

He tried covering his face with his hands although he was wearing a hoodie and a cap, both black, telling fans he was embarrassed to show his bare face.

The idol talked about the band’s recent trip to Singapore, telling fans it was great. The boy band participated in KAMP Singapore 2019, a K-pop festival, the previous weekend.

“It was our first time there and I have never felt such a vibe or atmosphere before,” he said, especially the visit to a quay.

Bang Chan’s first pick of the segment was Robbie Williams’ “Somewhere Beyond the Sea.”

“Maybe because it’s raining outside while I am feeling cozy inside, but I am in the mood for jazzy numbers,” he said.

The leader of the band also thanked fans for helping Stray Kids win the V Live Global Artist Top 12 award the previous day at the 2019 V Live Awards V Heartbeat. “I always say this but because it is true,” he said. “It is all thanks to you Stays.”

“This is the second time we are wrapping up our activities,” said Taehyun, asking his bandmates how they were feeling. Like him, they all had mixed feelings and felt that the month had passed extremely fast.

“It went past even quicker than when we debuted,” said Hueningkai. Soobin pointed out with a smile that the promotion for the band’s debut single had actually lasted five weeks.

“We had such fun, great time thanks to you,” said Yeonjun.

“I have said this already when we received an award yesterday but this time around there were many times that we could feel that we are loved by even more fans,” said Taehyun. The group received a rookie award at the 2019 V Live Awards V Heartbeat.

They asked fans how they felt about the end of the day’s performance -- one they had specially prepared, spelling out “MOA,” their official fandom name. Quickly, they admitted the A had not been perfect.

“I love how endearing and sweet the messages are,” said Baekho, looking at the placards the three singers were holding -- him, Aron and JR.

“Looking at so many of you holding these from the stage, it gives an indescribable feeling,” said Aron.

The event took place at the same venue as the band’s concert in April but the atmosphere had been so different, said Hyunmin. Baekho agreed and said he had been slightly baffled on the first day.

“And although we have been like a family, I feel as if we have gotten even closer to our fans, and more in tune with them,” said Aron.

“We have prepared a lot since we wanted to perform as many as possible and it seems like many have liked it,” said JR. The event opened with “Bass” because everyone wanted that opening, said Hyunmin.

“I didn’t realize until now that our fans loved ‘Sleep Talking’ so much!” said JR.
