“I have floated this idea before concerts and thought of doing the segment sometime but failed to find time amid my hectic schedule. It has been gnawing at the back of my mind throughout but I wanted to do it properly, especially since it is the first time,” he said.

Lest fans be disappointed, the idol reminded them in advance that he was only there to listen, as a friend would listen, and could not help them out in the same way as a professional.

Whenever he has time, he said, he reads through the messages sent by his fans -- “almost all of them!” -- and wants to be a person they can talk to freely and who can make them feel even a bit happier.

Hyunjin picked out several posts and began with the first, empathizing with the fan, who wrote in after feeling alone or slightly disconnected despite being with co-workers.

Lee Daehwi was there to support him, he said at the beginning, but Lee left right away, telling his bandmate he couldn’t stand how cute Lim sounded referring to himself as “Youngmini.”

Unperturbed, Lim continued chatting with fans, reminding them that the tutorial of chants for “Melting” had been uploaded.

He told them he’d had a hard time recording the soon-to-be released single. The main rapper did not write the rap part of the song, titled “Brand New Year 2019,” as Lee had already come up with it. But recording “saranghae,” which means “I love you” in Korean, turned out to be difficult.

“I don’t know how many times I had to do it,” he said.

The performer then put on “Melting,” and Lee returned to sing along. He was inspired by Olaf from “Frozen,” said Lee, who wrote the song, referring to the famous line that goes: “Some people are worth melting for.”

“It also is a song for you since your part after the bridge is so cool,” added Lee.

“I had a schedule and had a late dinner before coming back to the company (building),” she said, wondering if her fans were getting ready to sleep. She has been to McDonald’s with Shuhua and Yuqi.

“I had a photo shoot today but it is still a secret,” she said, smiling mysteriously.

She has had a severe cold and is still recovering, said the idol. She indulged fans’ curiosity, answering questions on topics such as the color of her lipstick.

Soojin also talked about how Shuhua came to shout “Let’s go!” onstage, a much-talked-about scene among fans.

“As you know we share a hotel room and she kept saying the phrase. I told her why don’t you say it onstage and she really did it the next day! I was totally surprised,” she said.

When fans complimented him on his eyebrows, which were peeking out from under his beanie, he thanked them and announced dramatically that he had some big news to share.

“Many of you would be wondering why I am not revealing my hair. I will tell you why now. My forehead actually is quite big and I am still feeling shy to show it to you,” said the performer. “It’s personal.” He would like to show his eyebrows more often, since he believes they are his best facial feature, he said.

Seunghoon has even quit drinking coffee because he’s heard it is not good for his hair. He had to dye it every three to four days to maintain the mint color. It got to be too much, leaving his hair dry and damaged, so he decided to go black and let it heal.
