“I didn’t know this day would come!” he said.

“I have promised that I will talk to you every week, and in a way, I have kept my word,” he said, confiding that he felt strange for some reason.

Fans pointed out that he was not wearing his signature black. At the request of some fans, he stood up to show his whole outfit: a white shirt over black cargo pants paired with black Nikes.

His first song for the day was his band’s “Gone Days.”

“It was quite an impromptu project, and I wanted to speak for fans, as well as myself, of course, through a song,” he said of writing the song.

Bang Chan cracked up when a special guest sat down next to him wearing a horse mask. He barely recovered as Changbin trotted in making horse sounds.

“I had a little time before starting practice and decided to go live,” he told viewers. It had been a while since he livestreamed showing his face, he added confiding that it takes a bit of courage to do so.

The idol assured fans that they did not need to worry about his health, as he was closely monitoring his weight.

He fiddled with a tablet, doodling and drawing, and showed a message saying hi to Carats, the band’s official fandom, with a cute smiley face.

He realized recently that his favorite color is navy, he told fans. Dino, who had sneaked in, made a sound of acknowledgement.

“You are doing it since you want to be in the segment as well, right?” joked Seungkwan.

“Just let me know if there still is a lag ... if it is still buffering, I will give up,” he told viewers, restarting the application and praying for a better connection.

He accepted fans’ request that he continue trying to stay online regardless of the connection.

He then went on to introduce the day’s special guest. “He is lively, has short legs, and is the main rapper,” said the idol, bursting into laughter.

Striking funny poses, Heo Chan joined Choi. He told fans that the pair had been taking a lesson before the short break.

“It’s a shame I cannot let (fans) hear the song we’ve practicing to,” said Heo.

“We can’t. No spoilers!” said Choi, adding “Please wait until you hear it at our concert.”

“I can’t catch my breath after dancing for one song,” Choi said of the demanding choreography.

“I have made a huge mistake. ... I forgot to mention fans during my acceptance speech. I could not let it go, so here I am,” she said with a bashful smile. The singer won an award in the variety program category of the 2019 MBC Entertainment Awards.

“I really didn’t realize (that I forgot to thank fans). ... I actually don’t remember what I said but I shouldn’t have forgotten to say thank you to you,” whispered the musician, keeping her voice down because it was early in the morning.

“I meant to leave a quick apology, wipe off my makeup and go to sleep. I didn’t expect to see so many of you but since you are here, I can’t just turn this off,” she said.

Hwasa admitted that she was tired amid all the year-end ceremonies and events.

“But if I look back on this later, it will be a precious memory,” she said.
