Saying hi for the second time, after his first attempt failed due to an unstable internet connection, he said he had wanted to chat with fans.

“We will be on the move to our next destination the next morning,” he told viewers.

He had turned on the V Live app while waiting for his food to arrive -- tofu stew and grilled galbi.

He wished fans luck in getting tickets for the band’s fan meeting, telling them it would be really fun. Just thinking about it made him laugh, said Hyungwon.

He was happy to see many Monbebes, the group’s official fandom, at the concert that day.

As for Jooheon, who stayed behind in Seoul due to health reasons, the singer assured fans that his bandmate was resting and getting better. He was then joined by Minhyuk who brought dinner. The two set the table and talked to fans together over the meal.

Thanking fans for their support, Jaeyoon assured fans that he had not cried. Some fans had said that he had shed tears onstage.

“You are not trying to protect your reputation as a man from Busan, right?” teased Dawon making fun of his bandmate.

“Seriously, I seldom cry, so hearing that I did made many fans worry,” said Jaeyoon telling fans over and over again that he had not cried.

Dawon also made it clear that Hwiyoung was not Dawon and Jaeyoon’s workout buddy. Although Hwiyoung exercises rigorously, he has yet to reach their level, said Dawon, smirking.

“But he really is the most vigilant in staying fit. He worked out for an hour at the waiting room today,” said Jaeyoon.

“Frankly, I am threatened. But I am going to reveal his well-hidden secret,” said Dawon. “There are so many pictures of him with such broad shoulders and tight abs, but he wears loose tops,” he chuckled.

“I actually just came back after dinner, and the rest of my bandmates went to the gym,” he told viewers, admitting that he still had makeup on, as he did not have time to wipe it off.

“I think (the performance) went pretty well and (we) really had a great time today,” he said with a big smile.

Having a live show here made him think about the rest of the group’s Asian tour and the upcoming concert in Seoul, said the idol.

He acknowledged that he had seen a clip of himself singing while in high school, which had gone viral among fans.

“You are even better than me at finding things (about me),” he said, confiding that it was the last thing he wanted to be found.

It was a really long time ago, and he had not even learnt how to sing properly, though he still has a long way to go, said the main vocalist of the boy band.

“It was my birthday yesterday and it was a busy day, but so many of you as well as the bandmates congratulated me,” she said.

“Everyone has a birthday, and I was not sure if I deserved all the things you have done for me, from letting my name be on the trending chart ... to the billboards. But at the same time I realized how blessed I am,” said the singer.

She wanted to tell fans how each and every one of them is special to her.

Her fans make her feel happy every day, said Sojung, adding that she read every message and letter sent to her.

GFriend was in Jakarta, and when the bell for her hotel room rang, she opened the door to find a hotel staffer holding an envelope that said happy birthday.

She accepted it with a thank you and tried to close the door, but her bandmates appeared from nowhere with a cake.
