“I wanted to go live after tomorrow’s concert, but I was worried that there might not be time,” he said, thanking fans for understanding.

He had just finished a promotional activity and it was good to chat with the fans despite the unstable connection, said the idol, waving hello from his bed.

Taeyong talked about the first stand-alone concert for NCT Dream, a subunit of NCT.

“Our manager has been to the concert and we had a long chat before this. Mark and I were not able to watch it live since we’re in New York, but we saw the video,” he said, expressing amazement at his bandmates’ live show.

“Wow, Jeno bared his upper half doing ‘Boom’ and I thought our Jeno has become a man,” said the performer, chuckling. He had practiced alongside NCT Dream in Seoul while the subunit was getting ready for the concert and had high expectations, he said. Hearing that fans loved it made him feel good, he added, although he said he was sad he could not be there to see the event live.

Chenle asked what everyone had done since the show and Jisung said he’d rested, while Haechan said he’d been preparing something for their fans.

“Honestly?” asked Renjun before saying that he’d actually spent some time with his relatives and done his radio show, making his bandmates chuckle.

Haechan then asked Renjun about his eyebrow and the latter assured his bandmate that he’d seen a doctor and was fine.

Chenle confessed that when Renjun hadn’t appeared onstage on time during the concert, his first thought had been that Renjun must be running late changing costumes. But when he did not appear until the second part of the song, he’d begun to worry, wondering if Renjun was sick.

“I was trying to get up yesterday morning but stopped halfway as my back hurt so much,” said Jeno, and everyone agreed before starting to make fun of Jisung.

“He was the only one who cried for all three days,” said Jeno.

“I am trying to look calm but am so nervous,” he said, beginning the two-hour segment with the band’s “I’m Fine.”

Bandmate Seungsik was worried for him and gave him some advice, and Subin thought he’d be OK before the program started. But when the show went on air, he’d fumbled a little and felt even more anxious, confessed the idol.

Some fans comforted him, saying he’d already earned a good reputation at broadcasting stations. Subin had heard that from the managers, he said, and was grateful.

“Especially since I don’t stand out in any way. I just do my best and am glad that there are people who appreciate the efforts. I will try harder,” he said humbly.

Mamamoo shows what it takes to be hip: Kpop Herald

Kpop Herald reporters looked closely at Mamamoo’s second full-length album, “reality in BLACK.”

The four-piece girl group has come out with it eight months after releasing an EP, and almost three years after its first full album, explained Ahn Sung-mi.

Hong Dam-young actually loves every single song on the 11-track album, said the reporter, picking “Destiny” as her favorite. “Destiny” is the first track and was the hit song with which the band won “Queendom,” a competition among six female bands, earlier this year.

Admitting that she is a fan herself, Hong talked about the media showcase held last Thursday. As always, Mamamoo was full of confidence and smooth with the reporters, and the huge venue proved how popular the group is, she said.

One of the factors that has earned the band such a big following may be how each member has her own unique personality, both on- and offstage, mused Ahn.

And with this new album, said Hong, the band is sending out a message: “Being true to oneself is the true hipness.”
