Mark and Johnny of NCT 127 carried on the band’s relay livestream that takes viewers to their “virtual” trips around the world, this time to France.

They had a big bottle of grape juice but added a label that said “red wine” in Korean. Sipping some of it poured into wine glasses, they chuckled and said wines are for mornings as it is only 10 a.m. in Paris.

“We have moved to France actually, Johnny and I,” said Mark.

“Just yesterday,” added Johnny repressing a smile.

With the help of a smartphone, they tried to speak some French.

“I forgot all my French, it’s kind of sad,” said Mark. Johnny told him not to pretend as if he knew much in the first place.

“I was actually good! Or at least that’s what my fifth-grade teacher told me,” Mark protested.

After eating salad and slices of baguette, they jumped over to London and tried making some English breakfast tea.

The bandmates of Stray Kids appeared on the 625th episode of “Idol Radio” bearing good news: successful release of their first studio album “Go Live.”

“We were so excited about coming back (on the program),” said Bang Chan.

The nine-piece act happily shared that the album has landed high on the charts around the world, the title track’s music video amassing close to 6.5 million views on YouTube at the time of the broadcast. The number almost doubled to 12.5 million in the next 10 hours.

The new album has 14 tracks in total and the members participated in writing the melody and lyrics of all and talked the production process.

Making “Easy” was such a fun and breezy experience, recalled Han.

“We just sat down together with the lyricists and threw around what ideas and melodies that came to our minds,” said Han, “and the melody was done in about an hour.”

Dahyun and Tzuyu of Twice went live taking a break at home.

“We have finished today’s activity earlier than expected,” said Dahyun. They have wrapped up their promotion for “More & More” recently and wanted to check in on their fans, she told viewers.

Tzuyu joined her on the camera and when Dahyun started to compliment her on self-management, Tzuyu confided that although she did work out that day but that it is quite rare.

“I’ve been eating a lot these days and was feeling guilty,” she went on. They had a photoshoot and when she woke up, at six in the morning, and looked in the mirror her face looked like an egg, she added.

Although they cannot talk details about the photoshoot, the two said that the photo shoot took place in a mountain quite afar and it felt good to breathe in the fresh air.

“We usually film things in a studio, and when I blow my nose later, I can even feel the dust! So it was such a nice change of scene,” said Dahyun.
