He first thanked fans for coming all the way to Incheon to cheer for the band.

“I feel bad that you had to bear the cold weather but really wanted to tell you how much strength you gave us. We had a lot of fun taping it and I hope you watch it as I am sure you will enjoy it as well,” he told viewers, asking fans who’d watched the event live not to share too many details. Everyone, from fans and staffers to the bandmates, puts in a lot of effort on such occasions but at the same time, the events help them bond more closely, said the performer.

The leader of the nine-piece boy band acknowledged that it would soon come out with a new EP.

“As you might have already guessed, we will be releasing one soon so please keep an eye out. It is impossible to keep it under wraps even if we wanted to,” he said.

Stray Kids always keeps it fun

The Stray Kids bandmates could not stop being silly while shooting a segment for Naver’s V Live as seen in the 21st episode of “SKZ-Talkers.”

While in the waiting room, Lee Know and I.N tinkered with Changbin’s phone, taking selfies. Changbin complained, telling them not to waste his storage space, only to prompt Lee Know to take burst photos.

Hyunjin was leaning on Changbin and the latter said the quickest way to wake his bandmate up was with a display of affection as he tried to give him a peck on the cheek. Never missing an opportunity, Lee Know tilted Changbin’s head and pushed the two together to make the kiss land on Hyunjin’s lips but Hyunjin resisted with all his might.

Even after changing into robes for the program, which features entertainers relaxing on mattresses, the mischief continued as Changbin poked Hyunjin in the face until the latter licked his finger -- only to be repaid by Bang Chan and Lee Know.

The eight members also celebrated the birthday of their company’s leader, Park Jinyoung, and the veteran entertainer said his birthday wish was for the band to make it big.

NCT’s vocal quartet warms up winter

NCT U, a subunit under the 18-piece act NCT, shared some behind-the-scenes footage from the music video for “Coming Home,” its project single for SM Station.

Taeil, Jaehyun, Haechan and Doyoung sing about their gratitude and affection for a loved one who has always been waiting for them. A full-body string session artfully mixed with guitar and piano offer a strong background for the singers’ harmonic R&B ballad, a perfect antidote for the chilly weather.

In the makings-of clip, the four bandmates laugh and poke fun at each other between takes. Sitting together in a train, they ask each other where they are going and Jaehyun says he always dreamed of being on the train from “The Polar Express.” Taeil wanted to experience a ride on the Trans-Siberian Railway while Haechan imagined being the train in the animated TV series “Thomas and Friends.”

“Coming Home” is the second single from “Station X 4 Loves for Winter,” a project of SM Entertainment’s digital streaming channel. It follows “This Is Your Day,” a collaboration with UNICEF.

“Hyojung tried to update the application but it took more than 10 minutes so we are using the Lovelyz account,” explained Mijoo as the two happily snuggled up.

Introducing each other as friends, they told viewers about their forthcoming joint project for Hyojung’s vlog.

“I have a YouTube channel and we have been meaning to come up with content together,” said Hyojung.

“But it has been so hard to meet up with Hyojung,” said Mijoo as Hyojung denied it, laughing.

The pair asked fans to recommend ideas, after letting them know what they thought first.

“Please be objective and don’t side with Mijoo,” Hyojung asked Lovelyz’s fans.

“I wanted us to dress up and do makeup for each other and walk down the streets in the Hongdae neighborhood,” Mijoo told excitedly. Hyojung said that was too predictable and shared her plans: to go to a singing room and exchange songs from each other’s groups as well as doing duets from their own repertoires, such as 2NE1 hits.
