Taeyong of NCT took to V Live on his own for the first time in a long while.

“I just came home and could not find a better place to do this so here I am in my room,” said the idol with a sheepish grin, confiding that it felt awkward.

He was taken aback when a huge sound blasted out from his computer, and he quickly apologized to viewers before showing them his drawings on the walls of his room -- mostly Snoopy and Spongebob characters, as well as some plants.

The musician had flown from Niigata to Tokyo, where he got to take a short nap before returning to Seoul for another commitment. He had then worked at the studio before calling it a day, he told fans, admitting that it had been a long day.

Sitting down in front of his computer, he clicked on the behind-the-scenes clip from NCT Dream’s concert and shared his recent playlist, including “Youngblood” by 5 Seconds of Summer. Making himself comfortable in his reclining chair, he also talked about the band’s forthcoming concerts in Japan, saying he couldn’t wait and saying he hoped everything would go well.

Stray Kids hold mini-recital for fans

I.N of Stray Kids invited Seungmin to join him during his solo segment for the third time, asking fans to spend the rest of the weekend with them.

“As you have seen from Lee Know’s Instagram post, we’ve been practicing for our tour and we thought we might be curious to hear the music,” said Seungmin after playing “My Universe,” the duo’s single, for 10 seconds. I.N teased fans, saying that they could hear the full song, while trying to cover his unruly hair.

I.N told viewers that he had been meaning to produce some music with Seungmin.

“We are not actually well prepared since going live together. Today has been kind of impromptu, so please understand that I may make some mistakes,” said I.N, adding that this was the first time he would be playing the repertoire in full.

Then he began to play the accompaniment for Seungmin, the eight-piece act’s vocalist, who sang Kim Dong-ryul’s “Should I Say I Love You Again.”

AB6IX’s Park Woojin is a huge drama fan

“My hair is so long that I cannot read the comments,” said Park Woojin of AB6IX, “although I had it trimmed.” Acknowledging that he was bare-faced, he said he had been taking care of his skin recently, and he wasn’t using much makeup these days in order to give his skin a chance to recover.

“I just wanted to spend some time with you,” said the idol. It had only been five days since he’d gone live on his own, but he agreed with fans that it felt longer, since they missed each other very much.

Looking at viewers’ comments, he realized it was Sunday and he had to catch up on his current favorite, “Crash Landing on You,” a weekend television drama featuring Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin. He told fans not to give him any clues about the story, confiding that he liked to watch episodes back to back since he couldn’t stand waiting.

Oh My Girl‘s Mimi chats with fans

“I had some time and just wanted to chat with you,” said Mimi of the all-girls band, going live from her room.

She usually wipes off her makeup as soon as she returns home but today she had just finished shooting some content for her own YouTube channel, named MimPD. It will soon be uploaded but not before something else she has planned, said Mimi.

Lunar New Year’s Day is just around the corner, and she will have tteokguk, traditional rice cake soup that Koreans eat on the holiday, instead of munching on cookies, said the performer, nodding miserably and saying she was still staying away from snacks.

When fans asked her to sing random requests, she hesitated before agreeing on one condition: if the number of hearts they sent reached 1 million in five minutes. Looking at the number jump by 8,000 while talking about it, however, Mimi tried to take her words back, saying, “No, no, no!”
