The bandmates of Victon went live to talk about their second single “Mayday” one hour before the release.

“This is the second single and the song as well as the music video is linked to the first (‘Time of Sorrow’),” said Kang Seungsik. It will be fun for Alice, their official fandom, to figure out the connection, he added.

They each picked the best individual photos from the album jacket shoot. Sejun was happy to be chosen as the one best embodying the concept of the song with a portrait that everyone agreed looked like a beauty ad.

“I went for a dramatic change and cut my hair really short,” he said. “And am satisfied with the results.”

Kang confided that he paid extra attention to the intro part as it was the first time he was given the job.

As for the music video that took only one day to shoot (“a record for us” according to Jung Subin), Seungwoo recalled how he managed to jump without a wire on the trampoline.

The Boyz’ New, Sunwoo enjoy feast

New and Sunwoo of The Boyz were set to enjoy a late dinner of marinated beef ribs.

Sunwoo first complained to viewers how New insisted that he has found a way to livestream via V Live on the Macbook but did not even know it started until they saw the number of viewers go up.

“It usually shows countdown from three, two, one but it didn’t this time for some reason,” protested New.

They were torn between beef and pork but decided to splurge, said Sunwoo. Opening the containers full of spicy sauce, however, was a messy job that led to a series of yells and arguments.

Once they had a bite of the meat, though, they looked each other in the eye with a satisfied smile.

“Umm ... this is really good!” said Sunwoo and New puffed up his chest reminding everyone that it was he who placed the order.

The bandmates of SF9 gathered to recap the second season of their original contents.

Each three have teamed up for three different themes: surviving at the company, selling lemonade and living together.

“We first thought of spending full 24 hours at the company with only 10,000 won to spend,” said Inseong. “We were too eager and started the day at almost dawn,” Youngbin continued on, “but the day before we had a day full of practice ... and there were times when we were at a loss.”

Youngbin said that he wanted to try the lemonade but the beverage was sold out fast.

“We cannot say that they were delicious,” Rowoon confessed. Jaeyoon was the one who came up with the idea to sell lemonades but he admitted that he was “inspired” by a game.

“But the costumes were our ideas and there are many small details you might have missed,” said Jaeyoon asking fans to watch the episode again and raise the number of views.

Kpop Herald reporters Yim Hyun-su and Hong Dam-young looked closely at Monsta X’s latest EP “Fantasia X.”

The band came out with the seven-track EP after seven months and it was off to a rocky start as the release was delayed due to Shownu’s back injury. It was the first time since Jooheon recovered from his mental health issues as well, noted Yim.

The same-titled lead track is signature Monsta X, full of energy and hard-hitting rap. It captures their spirit, how the band is ready to tackle any obstacles, Hong said.

“Fantasia X” actually competed with “Follow,” the lead single from the previous EP, Yim explained. And they had a runner-up for this EP’s title song and saved it for the next record, Hong added.

The bandmates participated in the creative process as well and Jooheon compared celebrities to swans, how the birds appear graceful on the surface but are paddling furiously underneath, in his song “Flow,” sending out a message to fans to live the life instead of worrying too much.
