The trio was happy to stream live after a long break, and at the same time amazed by how quickly the number of viewers went up.

“It has only been 20 seconds and look, it is 20,000, 30,000, 40,000,” said Chanyeol.

“We have been in a radio program and are on our way to the next scheduled activity,” explained Kai, apologizing in advance that they would have to keep it short. Meanwhile, Chanyeol reported that the viewers had reached 80,000, with 300,000 hearts clicked.

“You are quite obsessed with those numbers,” said Kai, as Chanyeol acknowledged that he cares about tangible results.

“We have a new manager and would like to him to say hi,” said Baekhyun turning the camera to show entertainer Jang Sung-kyu, who introduced himself as the band’s new manager.

As for their radio appearance, Baekhyun admitted that he felt more at ease compared to how nervous he was when they were still rookies.

“I wish we could do more -- if only the radio stations are closer,” he added.

“This is the first time we received two in an awards ceremony,” said Hueningkai.

“I was nervous since we were nominated for the rookie award -- but the Fans’ Choice, I did not even imagine to be part of it,” said Taehyun, as his bandmates nodded and said they were not anxious as none of them were even expecting to be chosen.

“We have had our ups and downs this year, but it is rewarding to win the rookie award,” admitted Taehyun.

The band praised the youngest member on his first solo performance, giving him a round of applause before bringing in a cake and singing “Happy Birthday” for Soobin.

He began by asking fans to be understanding that he was bare-faced again, pretending to wait for the special guest of the day whose blond hair was peeking out.

The first song he prepared to share with fans was Taeyeon’s “Gravity,” recommended by an acquaintance, saying it her voice makes him feel many different feelings.

He gave a thumbs-up to the next song recommended by a fan, “Blueming” by IU, before nudging his bandmate to join. Felix popped out to the embrace of Bang Chan, who reminded him that the last time they did the segment together was for episode No. 14.

Felix said he had prepared a long list of songs to share. Going through the live feed of comments from fans, Felix thanked fans for liking his freckles that were accentuated in recently released teaser photos. The leader told him that he finds them charming, but Felix said he has too many of the spots.

In turn, Felix said Bang Chan’s fair skin makes him look like he is glowing, while the Bang Chan said he was not happy with his pale skin, saying it makes him look unhealthy.

“Tomorrow we will go to San Jose and then head to Johnny’s hometown, Chicago, before returning to Seoul. After that we will have concerts in Japan and also prepare for year-end events,” said the idol, gently turning down a request to drop clues for an upcoming concert, telling the fan to please come to the live show.
