“We have wrapped up our concert quite successfully,” reported the five bandmates on their two days of live performances held last month in Seoul. For their third concert, titled “La Rouge,” they have tried many different things and put in quite a lot of time to prepare, added Seulgi.

While prepping for the concert, Wendy appeared on TV in “King of Masked Singer.”

“And you sang a song by Park Wan-gyu, one of my favorite singers,” said Joy, leading Wendy to quip that she chose the song specifically for her.

They went through fans’ messages that played on words, laughing and clapping, as Yeri shared the notification that the hearts sent by viewers had reached over 70 million in the 11 minutes since they had gone live.

After playing games themed on their music, the band finally discussed upcoming EP “The ReVe Festival Finale,” as well as the lead track “Psycho.”

“It sings about a couple who fights like crazy and then loves like crazy,” explained Irene, as Seulgi and Yeri showed key moves from the choreography.

They have been named honorary ambassador for a winter festival hosted by Coex, explained Hoshi.

The food filling the table in front of them was from a range of restaurants and food trucks participating in the event, and the band had been worried about whether they would be able to livestream while helping themselves to it, Seungkwan commented.

“I have been nibbling at some near me,” acknowledged Woozi, before everyone began to eat in earnest. Hoshi got very excited about a rice bowl topped with entrails -- “I have been wanting to try this for so long!” -- and shared it with the rest of the band.

Meanwhile, the bandmates said they were happy to meet fans face to face on the day and Wonwoo told viewers that they are preparing a number of different performances in time for holidays. They also have been busy making content to keep the fans happy before leaving for concerts in the US, kicking off in New Jersey on Jan. 10.

“Do you guys know when my first ‘Chan’s Room’ was?” he asked fans when he could not find the exact dates on the V Live application. His eyes went wide as a fan told him that the first episode had aired Jan. 2.

“I really want to thank you for having been with me, making it fun,” he said, before assuring fans he would continue the weekly livestream and be back next week.

Bang Chan let viewers have a peek underneath his black beanie as well, after someone joked about him going bald.

“I learned only recently, though, that my hair is quite a bright brown. I haven’t dyed my hair for quite a while and will show (the natural color) sometime soon. But today it’s in such bad shape,” he confided.

Before listening to the band’s recently released song “You Can Stay,” the idol said watching the scenes from the music video showing themselves rehearsing and performing on stage made him want to do concerts again so badly.

“We are on our way to watch the live concert of Day6,” Tzuyu told fans, raising her fists in excitement.

Although the inside of the car was too dark to show much, Tzuyu had dyed her hair earlier in the day. Dahyun commented that viewers would be able to see the color soon when they take to stage for year-end programs.

The pair was happy that it would soon be Christmas, and Tzuyu told viewers she had already decorated a Christmas tree.

“Sometimes I turn off all the lights except for the LED lights on the tree and leave the door slightly open, and let myself feel the ambience,” Tzuyu said, promising fans she would share the photo of the tree on Christmas Day.

“I turn off (the LED lights) whenever I can, worrying about the bills,” said Dahyun with a chuckle.

At the requests of fans, they turned on a light and Tzuyu said her hair may look black but will soon fade.

“To purple!” Dahyun blurted out before realizing her bandmate had wanted to keep it a secret.
