Bang Chan of Stray Kids kept his promise to livestream every week, bringing Felix along for the 59th episode of his solo segment.

“It feels as if it’s been a year,” said Felix, appearing to the tune of the band’s “Gone Days.”

Felix has been cooking and baking quite a lot these days and Bang Chan told him that his brownies were really good.

“But you always have something to say,” said Felix, as the latter told him with a sheepish grin that it is to offer him advice for further improvement.

There was a song Felix wanted to listen to together with fans, said Bang Chan, one he rushed to share with Felix as soon as it came out. The two danced and yelped with excitement, pointing out how the talented singer is playing the woodwind instrument part with only his lips. It was DAY6’s Young K covering “Fly Me to the Moon.”

Ryeowook, Yesung and Kyuhyun of Super Junior went live together and talked about the first EP by their unit, K.R.Y.

“For those of you who may not know, our first EP ‘When We Were US’ came out, first in 13 years and seven months (since we teamed up),” said Yesung.

In the mood for celebration, they had a table full of food and Yesung picked some up. The other two wasted no time in making fun of him, joking that Yesung only allows himself to eat dinner five times a year and he already has had seven so far.

The three went through a series of questions sent in by fans and shared the process of making the EP. Kyuhyun acknowledged that he has been staying away from alcohol and jogging 5 kilometers a day to gear up.

The rest of the bandmates have been more supportive than they expected, they said, giving their opinions on the songs and helping them promote the EP online.

Yugyeom of GOT7 briefly took to V Live from a studio to keep fans up speed.

In response to viewers’ questions, he told them he had woken up at around noon and had some noodles -- “Yes! With meat!” -- for lunch. He had yet to decide what he wanted for dinner.

He has found the velour short-sleeve T-shirt he was wearing while moving, admitting it was not perfect for the scorching day but he chose it because it looks nice.

He played Twenty88’s “Deja Vu,” grooving to the hip-hop duo’s music, saying he usually focuses on the song itself first and looks up the lyrics later.

The performer also assured fans that he is feeling better although he still is taking painkillers for a wisdom tooth. He is working out every day, and some of the bandmates are keeping up with their regimen as well, he told fans, before wishing everyone a good day.

Twice’s “More & More” remarkable in many ways: K-pop Herald

K-pop Herald reporters Hong Dam-young and Kwon Yae-rim delved into Twice’s ninth EP, “More & More.”

The title track is quite different from their previous songs -- slower and simpler -- especially in the chorus, trying to focus on the vocals, said Kwon.

The dance number is all tropical and summery, perfect for the season, Hong continued, but what sets the EP apart is the impressive roster of songwriters from around the world, including Justin Tranter from the US and MNEK from the UK.

Some said “More & More” instantly brings Zara Larsson, the Swedish pop star, to mind, and she indeed was one of the producers of the title track, noted Kwon.

The female band’s new EP is meaningful, to both the band and fans, not only because it landed on the Billboard 200 chart -- a first for Twice -- but also because they did it as a whole group with Mina, who has taken some time off due to mental health issues, she added.
