Joshua, The8 and Woozi of Seventeen uploaded a video of themselves writing New Year’s greeting cards.

The8 chose to use green paper but realized that there were too many shades of green in the stack of sheets. Joshua went for yellow at first, but then changed his mind and picked orange. Woozi, on the other hand, took a while to select a color and quietly began working on his.

After confirming that Joshua would write a message in English and Woozi in Korean, The8 said he would write his in Chinese. Joshua tried to make up for his mistakes, with Woozi’s encouragement, but in the end gave up on the first card and started again as did The8.

After several minutes of concentrating hard, Joshua admitted that he didn’t know what he was doing and went back to the original sheet.

“I wish happiness for all of you throughout the year,” said Joshua, showing everyone the orange card he’d finally finished.

Woozi drew a pouting face with the eyes and eyebrows shaped like the number 2020.

Pentagon’s Hongseok misses fans

Hongseok of Pentagon went live from Yuto’s studio but had a hard time getting used to the gadgets.

“This is the first time I am using a Mac, so it took me a while just to turn this on,” he said, confiding that he’d had to call the owner of the studio to find out how to use Safari.

He made another call after he started livestreaming, however, to make the sound come through the speakers. When he was finally ready he played the band’s “Shower of Rain.”

The performer was munching on a snack and listening to the song when he spotted that KARD was on V Live and was wrapping up a promotion too.

“I was about to mention KARD,” he said. “We had a lot of fun together hanging out with BM, and all the members are big fans of the group.”

Hongseok told viewers that he’d just wanted to connect with them, especially since the cancellation of an autograph session due to COVID-19.

ITZY releases mini-videos for new album

The five-piece rookie girl group ITZY has unveiled a series of short clips featuring instrumental parts of songs from its EP “IT’z ME,” heightening the anticipation for its forthcoming release.

Although each video is barely 20 seconds long, in the collage of photographs the band members exude confidence and charm, befitting the theme “one and only me.”

The title track, “Wannabe,” is a fusion groove number that mixes EDM, house and hip-hop. The bandmates teamed up with the same songwriters who wrote their hit debut single, “Dalla Dalla.”

It is followed by six more tracks, including “Nobody Like You.” If the title seems to hark back to Wonder Girls’ “Nobody,” it may not be a coincidence as Yubin of the original girl group sensation wrote the lyrics.

IZ*ONE giddy with excitement before “Fiesta” premiere

IZ*ONE shared a behind-the-scenes clip from the recording of “Fiesta,” the title track from its first full-length album, “BLOOM*IZ.”

“I don’t have bangs today. How do I look?” asked Miyawaki Sakura, looking into the camera. Her bandmates complimented her, telling her she looked very pretty.

They seemed relaxed, smiling before a staffer reminded them it was time for a camera rehearsal. Their faces instantly turned serious before Kim Minju burst into laughter when Miyawaki commented on her wink.

“Finally we get to meet you, Wizone,” said Honda Hitomi, walking down the aisle and addressing the group’s official fandom. “My heart is aflutter!”

“Am I showing my bob at last?” asked Kim Chaewon, and the bandmates let her shout their slogan before going onstage.
