Dino of Seventeen took to V Live to report that he was back from the American leg of the band’s international tour.

“I am back in Korea so I wanted to do this. And also wanted to promote our original content on YouTube, ‘Going Seventeen,’ which will be broadcast soon,” he said, chuckling.

The bandmates enjoy shooting “Going Seventeen,” he said, even though they shoot more than one episode at a time. The atmosphere is quite relaxed and they have fun, which probably is why fans like the show, he added.

“It feels nice to be back sitting in front of this wall,” said the idol, admitting that it was exciting to go to new places but the familiar setting gave him comfort.

He then told fans about his black outfit. The fluffy-hooded jacket was new and he wanted to wear it on the US tour, but his suitcase was already full. So he put it on as soon as he came back, and it actually was a present from his parents. Dino then put on a checkered muffler, a gift from bandmate Jun’s mother to keep away the cold during the tour, and modeled it for the viewers.

Tomorrow X Together plays good old games

Donning “hanbok,” or traditional Korean costume, the bandmates of TXT continued playing games inspired by traditional Korean pastimes in the spirit of the Lunar New Year’s holidays, during the fourth episode of their reality program.

With their eyes on the “prince” title, the five members tried “jegi chagi,” a Korean game in which players kick a paper shuttlecock. Each player got a different kind of “jegi,” the name for the shuttlecock, but Taehyun reclaimed the title despite the fact that he was given the one everyone thought would be the most difficult to kick.

The next mission was making “tteok mandu guk,” or rice cake and dumpling soup. The quintet was given a number of ingredients and each had to pick three without consulting the others. Taehyun was the first and he chose the most essential -- rice cakes, beef broth and leeks -- and waited for the others in a separate room.

“I hope they will go down the list in order of priority but I’m afraid they won’t,” he said.

Yuta of the NCT subunit NCT 127 went live after a social media chat session with fans.

“There have been a lot more posts from you than I expected and I didn’t have enough time to reply to them all. I will do my best and reply to as many as possible here as I don’t want you to feel bad,” he said.

Some fans asked him to drop a few clues about what’s next from the band. Although it was not easy to offer hints, he said, he could say that no K-pop group had prepared as much for a new release.

“We have not been that active here in Korea but we want you to keep your expectations high,” added the performer, saying he had practiced on his own before the V Live segment.

When fans commented on his cozy-looking jacket, he said he had gone to Osaka during the Lunar New Year’s holidays and picked it up while hanging out with friends in the city’s Amerikamura neighborhood.

Hyunjin of the eight-piece act Stray Kids checked in on fans close to midnight, as soon as he returned to his hotel room after a concert.

His roommate Seungmin was getting ready to take a shower and he was far from ready to sleep, he said, acknowledging that he was planning to watch some dramas after the live broadcast.

The previous night, he’d watched four episodes, including “Crash Landing on You,” his current favorite.

“I watched one and then was so happy when I woke up and saw that the next episode was already available,” said the idol, thanking fans for recommending it. The tightrope relationship between the lead characters touched his heart, he said, while he was still too scared to watch “Stranger Things” at night.

Hyunjin confided that he was tired and actually didn’t work out anymore.

“I am in awe of those who do. And how they drink those protein (beverages) ... it really tastes bad,” he said. “I used to exercise a lot when I was a trainee, though. Maybe it still is helping me stay fit.”
