JB of GOT7 went live at around 3:30 in the morning chatting with fans for 2 1/2 hours without showing his face.

He let out a sigh when a fan reminded him of the fact that it has been eight years since “Bounce,” the first single from his duo unit with Jinyoung, came out.

“I’d like to listen to it as well but I don’t have it as an LP,” he said.

“It would be nice to have an LP version of the ‘JJ Project.’ It would me meaningful,” added the musician.

As for his most cherished LP, he picked one his friends gave him. Although he is not familiar with the artist, it was part of a bundle of gifts from Cuba since they knew JB’s favorite author is Ernest Hemingway.

Meanwhile, he confirmed that he had his hair cut, from shoulder-skimming length -- “it feels good, kind of light” -- but gently turned down some fans’ suggestion that he looks like a 20-something with shorter hair.

“I actually thought of shaving off half of my hair but chose to go for normal, by my standard,” said JB.

Park Seonghwa of Ateez tried decorating Polaroid pictures as per fans’ request.

“I’ve been going through posts on SNS and saw some that asked me to do this,” he said, although he needed to decipher the abbreviated term.

The staff has prepared a lot of materials and he has taken instant photographs five minutes before starting the livestream.

“I was thinking I might do five and give them away to you Atiny,” said the idol addressing the band’s official fandom. He checked the live chats to see if they want him to and boosted by the enthusiastic response, decided to decorate 10.

“I’m actually at a loss, though,” he confided, since this is the first time he is doing such work. Once he got started, however, first by spelling out the fandom name and adding sparkly heart stickers, Park gradually gained confidence.

It took him about 1 1/2 hours to finish all and he thanked viewers for staying with him and apologized for not talking to them more.

Jinhwan and Ju-ne of iKON said hello to fans via Naver’s V Live after their performance for a K-pop festival. The three-day event hosted by the Ministry of Culture and Sports kicked off on Tuesday and is broadcast through online platforms and cable televisions.

“Our fans must have been happy seeing us perform for the first time in a while,” said Ju-ne.

“Although we could not see you there, we believe you have enjoyed it,” continued Jinhwan.

They had quite a hectic day and “it felt great and strange,” said Jinhwan.

“It’s been long since I sang,” commented Ju-ne, quickly taking it back.

“You sing everyday at this darn house,” Jinhwan pointed out telling viewers that even though their rooms are at the farthest end of their residence and even with both doors shut, he can still hear him belting out.

The two cracked up when a fan suddenly asked to show their abs, and Ju-ne rolled up his sleeve and showed his bicep instead.

Kang Daniel celebrated the 300-day anniversary of his solo debut.

“I’ve really wanted to do this,” he said trying to undo a balloon. He settled on cutting it open and inhaled a lungful of air from it, happily speaking to viewers with a high voice from the helium.

“There was a reason I stayed quiet,” said the performer beckoning fans to join in for the livestream to mark the occasion.

He thanked fans for sending in congratulatory messages, admitting that his face was quite puffy as he had a nightmare in which he had a motorcycle accident that left him unable to move his legs.

“It made me renew my resolution to stay safe at home,” he muttered.

Kang added balloons that spelled out 300 and party to liven up the background, and chatted with fans munching on some fried chicken. He answered fans’ questions that included when the best moment from the last 300 days was.

“Now. I can look back at the time and celebrate with you,” he said.
