Park Jihoon went live, inviting fans to join him for two rounds of “Battleground,” an online shooting game.

He set up a room with his birthday as a password and told viewers that they would be playing in individual mode and zombie mode, and was surprised at how fast the 99 slots filled up joining his Wingdventure character.

As the game loaded, the idol wondered out loud how he was supposed to shoot Mays, the official name of his fandom community, and when the game began, crouched and tried to sneak past without being noticed. In a few seconds, however, he was surrounded by a mob.

“Aren’t you hitting me too wildly? You seem a little too excited,” he said to the fast-growing group of attackers predicting that it would be a serious challenge.

The former Wanna One member dominated the solo “Battleground” match at an esports competition among K-pop idols last month. But when playing it with his fans for almost three hours, he was distracted trying to help out those in trouble.

“I had a great time,” said Park promising that there will be more such opportunities soon.

Yeonjun of TXT invited Beomgyu to the second episode of his gaming segment challenging the bandmate to beat him at Halli Galli, a version of the card game snap.

He was full of confidence reminding the latter that he has never lost, although it was only the second episode, and accepted the suggested penalty of buying a meal without any hesitation.

After ringing the bell twice, Yeonjun teased Beomgyu saying, “I’ve never seen anyone so slow!” When he raked in the cards two more times, he apologized to fans in advance that the livestreaming may have to end too early. Beomgyu howled in frustration until he managed to stop Yeonjun’s winning streak in the seventh round.

“I don’t think anyone will challenge me at Halli Galli,” said Yeonjun and Beomgyu admitted that he was indeed good.

As for the “family portraits,” taken together with other artists at Big Hit Entertainment including BTS, Yeonjun confided that they felt pressure to keep up with the seniors. They even helped TXT members relax striking up conversations, added Beomgyu.

Yugyeom of GOT7 livestreamed again at his home studio after returning from a recording session.

“What song should I listen to together with you?” he murmured, acknowledging that it was a good thing to be worried about.

“This is really good but I’m not sure if I have played this before,” the musician said before putting on Metro Boomin’s “Dreamcatcher.”

He also recommended “Can I Love?” by Cosmic Boy, telling fans that his brother and he listen to the singer/songwriter’s album of the same name quite often, even though it has been out for quite a while. Cosmic Boy cowrote “Focus on Me,” a single for JB and Yugyeom’s duo unit Jus2, he added.

He also thanked fans for liking the photoshoot he did for the February issue of MAPS magazine. He has learned that it has sold out and was grateful that many have appreciated it even more for the fact that it was his first solo photoshoot.

The eight-piece act took to V Live after its concert in Chicago, the fourth destination of its US tour.

The bandmates seemed to be still giddy with excitement from the live show, making fun of each other and joking around while showing how each of them have added yellow accents to their black and white outfits as it was the colour of the day.

“We had a great time today as well,” said Han and the concert was filled up with so much heat, added Hyunjin. Checking the local time for viewers in Korea, they asked if they had lunch going through the long list of menu they had one by one in funny voices.

Felix asked fans to wait for them in Miami, their next stop, as the bandmates thanked everyone for coming to and supporting for the tour. The band will visit Phoenix, San Jose and Los Angeles for the rest of the American leg of its international tour.
