Lee Know of Stray Kids chatted with fans while having a late lunch.

“I wasn’t planning to eat today but I’ve missed the timing to eat lunch,” he said. “And it’s nicer to eat together, right?”

The idol gave viewers a good look at his lunch -- pork cutlets with cheese, beef dumplings and a roll of gimbap -- before taking a bite of the cutlet and nodding in appreciation.

He indulged fans’ requests to draw his bandmates as different animals: Hyunjin with the body of a llama and Seungmin as a puppy. He worried for a second that Hyunjin might complain, but assured himself that he was still practicing.

Lee Know was getting ready to sketch Bang Chan as a kangaroo when Hyunjin called him on the phone. He feigned innocence and quickly hung up, chuckling and saying you’re supposed to keep your excuses short and simple.

GOT7’s JB wants to help beat Monday blues

JB of GOT7 greeted his fans and chatted with them for an hour -- way longer than the planned 30 minutes.

Keeping the camera off, he first apologized for doing the livecast during the wee hours, saying he rarely slept at that time but was sorry for keeping his fans awake.

“I won’t stay for too long, I promise,” said the musician. “I just wanted to offer a way to beat your Monday blues.”

He confided that he was living like a jobless person and wondering if that was OK. Then he switched on the camera and asked viewers if they could see his face. The viewers were happy to see his face, and some said it was a blessing. He smiled and asked if voice-only broadcasts weren’t good enough.

“I don’t know if I’ve lost weight but I’m being careful not to gain some,” said JB in response to comments. He also agreed with a fan who wished there were only nice comments.

“But there is always a flip side,” he said.

Twice’s Jeongyeon opens up to fans

Jeongyeon of Twice went live from her family home and let fans in on her softer side.

She showed them her pets -- a puppy and a cat -- before bringing the camera into a different room.

“My mom put this together,” said the performer, offering viewers a close look at a huge collection of memorabilia from her music career as well as her sister Gong Seungyeon’s acting career.

She went back to her bedroom and worried that the sty under her eye was still noticeable.

“I have a photo shoot tomorrow,” said Jeongyeon, resigned, adding that there was nothing she could do.

Then she told fans about a painful condition she has that affects a disk in her neck. It has plagued her for some time, but while shooting the music video for “More & More,” she felt some numbness in her ear and went to see a specialist. She received treatment for a ruptured disk only a week before the release of the new EP and could not practice.

“I didn’t want to show how imperfect I was onstage,” she confided.

The bandmates of Ateez held a two-hour online concert that was livestreamed via Naver’s V Live for fans around the world. It was broadcast May 30, and the full video was uploaded on the band’s V Live channel on Monday.

“It’s been a while since we’ve performed onstage,” said Kim Hongjoong, trying to catch his breath after the first song, “Wave.”

Although they had been communicating with fans through online platforms, taking to the stage all together was a long-awaited moment, said the leader.

Their fans showed their support, sending in messages through a live chat room. Light sticks equipped with artificial intelligence delivered messages in real time, to the delight of the band members.

The eight-piece act hoped the performance was a small solace, the musicians said.

“We may be physically apart but our hearts are connected,” they said, thanking the fans for the chance to go onstage with such joy.
