The BTS members continued their games in the 101st episode of “Run BTS!”

They started by guessing what was inside a metal box after a quick peek under the lid. J-Hope went first, but upon seeing a neatly folded umbrella he muttered, “It’s too easy.”

Jungkook managed to get the answer after only a few tries and Jin took over. When the bandmates protested that they could not see a thing after the first try, Jin attempted to lift and shut the lid several times very quickly but it got stuck. While the rest of the septet complained that they could not see a thing, J-Hope rightly guessed that it was a roll of duct tape -- to the surprise of everyone, including Jin.

J-Hope was on a roll but Jungkook worked hard and achieved a tie by getting V’s alarm clock, which nobody else could figure out.

As the last player in the round, Jimin carefully chose the object: a tiny vial of perfume. When J-Hope got it right, Jimin acknowledged that he’d thought J-Hope would be the only one to figure it out.

How Stray Kids makes music

Bang Chan, Changbin and Han of Stray Kids, the producing unit within the band, went live to talk about how they work on their music.

“We are going to play some game,” joked Han, gesturing at the equipment they’d brought in for the day.

They’d actually amassed quite a lot of work together and could just send the zip files to Stay, their official fandom, said Bang Chan, chuckling.

“Without the company knowing,” chimed in Changbin.

“If we were to show the whole process, it will take at least five hours,” said Bang Chan. Starting from finding the right sounds requires even more time, added Han.

When a viewer asked them to recommend a virtual synthesizer, each musician shared his opinion.

“But if you are sincere about your music, you should be able to whip up some using, say, only the table,” declared Han while tapping on the table.

NCT Dream‘s Jisung says hi

Jisung of NCT Dream checked in on fans.

“I thought of doing a ‘voice-only’ livestream but turned (the camera) on since it’s been a while and we have also uploaded a video,” he said, confiding that he hadn’t been awake for long.

As for the mask, he explained that COVID-19 was part of the reason but there was also “something cute” on his face. The idol then showed off his social security card, something he’d been planning to do for two months.

“I finally get to show you this,” he said.

The band is coming out with new music after almost nine months and Jisung was about to reply to fan requests to drop some hints when Chenle walked into the room.

“Hey, you should have knocked! You really gave me a start!” Jisung told Chenle before recovering and confirming that his bandmate had just dyed his hair black.

Sneak peek at BTS X Bodyfriend collaboration: Kpop Herald


Kpop Herald reporters Hong Dam-young and Kwon Yae-rim paid a visit to Bodyfriend’s flagship store to get a close look at its collaboration with BTS.

The septet is the new face of Bodyfriend, a global health care company that is well-known for its high-end automated massage chairs, explained Hong.

They walked into the store and Kwon went over to try out one of the chairs herself. Hong inspected the life-size cutouts of the BTS bandmates up close.

Over the chair in which Kwon was enjoying a full-body massage, a makings-of video from the BTS commercial was playing. The footage is exclusively for store customers and Hong couldn’t record it, she told her viewers.

Kwon said the experience shattered all her prejudices against massage chairs and that she could see why BTS chose Bodyfriend.
