Stray Kids premiered their first full-length album in a one-hour showcase that was broadcast via Naver’s V Live and YouTube on Wednesday.

They broke onto the stage with “Side Effect,” from last year’s EP “Cle 2: Yellow Wood,” and turned the heat up with “Top,” their fourth digital single, which came out in May.

“We’ve been so eager to get back onstage,” said Bang Chan after greeting the fans. “Even though you are not here in front of us, we really can feel how you are watching and rooting for us.”

“We really can,” said Changbin. “I just heard someone shouting that Changbin is handsome,” he joked, cracking his bandmates up.

“As the title of our first album, ‘Go Live,’ suggests, we’ve been picking our brains to show how alive we are, the raw side of us,” Changbin explained.

The highlight of the showcase was “New Menu,” the focus track from the new album. The idols were happy to read real-time comments from viewers complimenting them on their apron-like costumes.

Taeil and Jungwoo of NCT 127 invited fans to join them on an imaginary trip to Jakarta, Indonesia.

The two began the livestream by pretending to wake up in their hotel beds with a suitcase, a parasol, some cans of sunscreen and a few bottles of a local tea drink as props.

“We arrived here the day before yesterday and slept until now,” they told viewers, adding that they were planning to tour Southeast Asia and wondering where they should go next.

Sporting tropical print shirts and straw hats, the pair enjoyed nasi goreng, or Indonesian fried rice, from room service.

“This is so good. You should definitely try local food when you’re traveling,” Taeil said.

At fans’ request, Jungwoo opened the suitcase to show what was inside: a T-shirt, two pairs of socks, toiletries and a camera.

“Not much since it’s only three nights and four days here,” he added.

Their plans for the rest of the trip? A lesson to brush up on their traditional dance skills and a visit to a beach in Bali.

Yeji and Chaeryeong of ITZY demonstrated their love for K-pop songs.

“Today we’ve come up with our own ideas,” said Chaeryeong proudly.

All the bandmates very much enjoy listening to K-pop songs, and the two are excellent at guessing which song they are hearing after playing it for one second.

“So we’ll be deciding who is the absolute best today,” said Yeji.

As soon as the first note played out, both hands shot up and both singers shouted their nicknames. They burst into laughter as Yeji blurted out Chaeryeong’s nickname instead.

Chaeryeong confidently said the song was “I Don’t Wanna Dance,” but Yeji said she was very disappointed and gave the right answer: “That’s A No No.” Yeji danced triumphantly, while Chaeryeong made a long face before moving on to the next song.

As the challenge heated up, they stood up to sing and dance along with their favorites. Yeji admitted defeat when they received the final scores: Chaeryeong won 22 to 12.

Jinyoung of GOT7 gave fans a sample of his photo book exhibition, titled “Hear Here.”

First he picked up one of three black devices that looked like old-fashioned phone receivers.

“With this, you can hear me, the part from the teaser, and the rest you can listen using the photo book,” he explained, looking at a picture of himself in a public phone booth.

“This actually gave me a slight cringe. Pretending to listen intently while no sound came (from the phone),” he confessed with a smile.

Spotting a stack of photo books, the idol wondered if all the fans who had purchased them in advance had received them.

“It was shot in Taipei, where I was filming a television drama,” he said. Jinyoung told viewers that he especially liked the photographs taken on the street at night.

“They show me as if I’m taking a leisurely stroll. Actually some old gentlemen and ladies asked me what in the world I’m doing,” he recalled, chuckling.
