V of BTS hosted another radio-themed solo segment, introducing himself as “Kim Taehyung, DJ of Taetae FM” after about six minutes of listening to, mouthing along with and dancing to songs.

“Many of you have told me to upload pictures but I thought talking to you showing my face would be better,” he said. He invited a special guest to join him, explained the artist, as his hotel room doorbell rang.

It turned out to be J-Hope, and V welcomed his bandmate and offered him a chair. But J-Hope barely sat before excusing himself to go wash his hands. V briefed J-Hope, saying they would listen to their fans’ stories posted via Weverse, the band’s online platform, proudly telling the latter that he had come up with the idea all by himself.

When a fan who was just about to start college asked for their advice on making friends, the two looked at each other and laughed, admitting it was not easy for them to answer the question since they hadn’t had that experience.

“I personally believe in confidence, though,” said J-Hope, suggesting that the fan approach others in a natural way.

Renjun of the NCT subunit NCT Dream went live after his radio show as usual but had to keep it short.

“I’m afraid I won’t be able to stay long today since I am headed to a rehearsal now,” he told viewers. When they asked for more details, he consulted someone off camera and then announced he was rehearsing for the 29th Seoul Music Awards.

The idol assured fans that he was not tired and he had eaten. “A Subway sandwich, very healthy, with chicken, vegetables and bread!” he said, giving it the thumbs-up sign.

Renjun, however, told fans he couldn’t say any more about the performance. “For spoilers, you should wait for Chenle, not me,” he said, chuckling. He then bowed to viewers, thanking them for getting his band’s first Japanese EP to the top of Japan’s Oricon chart. He said he was thrilled, grateful and happy at the same time.

Heo Chan of Victon took to V Live on his own, sharing stories sent in by fans along with songs he chose.

“I have suggested the theme of what makes you lose sleep these days and you have posted so many (stories). It was very difficult to choose,” he said.

The idol smiled as he read the first post, which talked about the photographs he’d recently uploaded from his early childhood. The fan asked him about a red fork that appeared in more than one picture. Citing his mother, Heo said he’d been quite fond of it. He promised to share more in the near future and played Seo In-guk’s “My Baby U” to go with the story.

He then welcomed a fan who had developed an addiction to coffee after she started working. Now she drinks up to three cups a day and when the caffeine keeps her awake, she watches the band’s previous V Live episodes.

“I love coffee as well, the relaxed feeling I get when I sip it,” said the performer.

AB6IX’s Lee Daehwi indulges himself on birthday

Lee Daehwi, the leader of boy band AB6IX, began his V Live segment by singing “Happy Birthday” to himself to celebrate turning 20.

He had not had dinner yet so he had two kinds of fermented crabs.

“I have been craving this ever since I saw Hwasa savoring it on an entertainment program. And today is a special day and I also am rewarding myself for working diligently last year,” he said.

The idol squealed when he popped one open and let out a sigh of happiness, taking a piece and exclaiming, “This is just too good!”

His mother was in Korea and although she was not such a great cook, she’d made “miyeok guk” -- or seaweed soup, which Koreans usually have on birthdays -- and it was so good, he told viewers. The next day happened to be his mother’s birthday and as a present for both of them, he’d had a family picture taken with her.
