“What should I do?” Wonwoo of Seventeen wondered out loud, admitting that he had turned on the V Live application without knowing what to say.

S.Coups was eating across the table from Wonwoo, the singer told viewers before the camera slipped and fell.

“It’s OK,” he assured his worried fans, joking, “It’s not my phone.”

Sympathizing with fans who must be bored spending a lot of time at home, the performer said he had been watching the band’s own videos.
“I’ve been in viewer’s mode and it’s so much fun,” he said.

Wonwoo said it was fun just looking at the live chat messages sent by fans. He didn’t know what to do for the livestream, he confessed, acknowledging that being on camera on his own made him nervous.

“You can do it,” said S.Coups from outside the frame. “But you should say something so that I can make some noise eating.”

Tomorrow X Together's Soobin professes love for ice cream

Soobin of TXT took to V Live to chat with his fans.

“I rarely wear berets,” he said with an embarrassed smile, confiding that he was having a bad “front hair” day. The smile turned to chuckles as he added that he had brought a small bucket of ice cream -- all four flavors -- to keep his mouth busy.

When fans asked him if he could eat it all, he said of course.

“With Hueningkai, I can finish the biggest one with six flavors in one go,” said the idol.

While discussing his favorite ice cream, fans spotted a bandage on the artist’s finger.

“It’s nothing. A small injury while practicing,” Soobin assured fans. Everyone gets hurt when they practice, he said casually, from getting bumped here and there.

About Beomgyu’s birthday over the weekend, Soobin said he’d given his bandmate a bracelet along with a handwritten note.

“He has mentioned that he was the only member I hadn’t written one for, half-jokingly, but it was gnawing at me,” said the leader of the boy band. “And we have been spending quite a lot of time together and there were things I wanted to say to him,” he added.

Stray Kids can't help teasing each other

The same-aged bandmates of Stray Kids -- Seungmin, Han, Felix and Hyunjin -- livestreamed together for the first time this year.

They began the live segment by demonstrating how to put on hand sanitizer.

“It was nice talking to you with all of us together. Should we say how we felt today and say bye?” joked Han, smiling and saying that it had already been three hours.

The rest of the bandmates made fun of Felix, who kept a black hoodie over his head, calling him the “dark force” among them. Felix said he wanted to surprise his fans with a new hair color but Hyunjin burst into laughter and reminded him he’d already posted his picture on Instagram.

They were busy making fun of each other when they recalled the first time they all met and how they’d shocked each other with their too-natural selves when they started living together.

NCT 127's new album kicks it up: Kpop Herald

Kpop Herald reporters Yim Hyun-su and Hong Dam-young looked closely at NCT 127’s second full-length album, “NCT #127 Neo Zone,” released March 6.

Although the band’s offline showcase has been canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the album is doing very well around the globe, they said.

The yellow-jacketed album debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, said Yim, and is the highest-charting album as of today. Last year’s album peaked at No. 11, added Hong. “Neo Zone” is much stronger in terms of sales as well, noted Yim, having sold three times more copies than the previous one.

The two then talked about the title track, “Kick It.”

NCT 127 is known for its hip-hop music and strong beats, but this single is quite different from “Superhuman,” the lead track on the band’s fourth EP album, said Hong. She picked as her favorite part the chorus where all the bandmates chant together. It is produced by US-based musician Dem Jointz, who also produced EXO’s “Obsession,” Hong explained.
