Cravity made a second appearance on “Idol Radio” although it has been only 71 days since the band’s debut.

DJ Young K of DAY6 asked the bandmates how they felt about their new song “Cloud 9,” all cute and fresh, unlike the powerful debut title, “Break All the Rules.”

“I was not used to being cute and felt more confident performing the charismatic title track onstage,” confided Serim.

Minhee talked about his duet with Monsta X’s Kihyun at KCON: Tac 2020 Summer, an online K-culture festival.

“We sang Jukjae’s ‘Let’s Go See the Stars’ and I really liked the song,” he said, singing part of it.

“(The festival) was the first occasion for us to perform for Lovity (their official fandom community) even though it was online, but we held back our tears as ‘Cloud 9’ is an upbeat song,” recalled Allen. “But seeing Minhee sing onstage with such a sweet voice, I was so proud and couldn’t fight back the tears.”

Bobby of iKON went live for half an hour while having some food from McDonald’s.

“I was thinking of having some instant ramen but saw this bag of random choice,” he told viewers, taking out some chicken nuggets and a wrap.

Munching on the nuggets, he said he’d just come back from a meeting at his company, although he was not sure what the meeting was about after sitting through it.

Getting closer to the screen, the performer showed off his new eyebrow piercing with tiny blue and red stones.

“It’s so gleaming ... and like the Taegeukgi,” he said, referring to South Korea’s national flag.

He asked after fans and told them he had to feed himself some more.

“I’ve lost some weight and muscle, down to 63 kilograms. I’m doomed,” said Bobby, admitting he had not been working out recently as it was too much of a hassle to go to the gym.

Woodz gave fans a sneak peek at his first EP, “Equal,” which comes out next week.

“There is the blue ‘Cosmic’ version and the white ‘Earth’ version,” he said, showing fans two album jackets.

He first opened the “Earth” version to reveal a portrait of himself, suppressing a smile. Besides the photo book, there are photo cards and stickers, he explained hurriedly, picking up a few that had fallen on the floor as he opened the box.

The idol showed the fans a sticker bearing the word “Equal,” which they’d seen on his smartphone before. “The one you were very curious about,” he said. There was also a sticker of two faces, a yellow smiley and a red sad face, which he’d drawn after getting a tattoo on his arm.

“There are only four days left ... I’m so excited and nervous at the same time,” he said, asking fans to keep their expectations high for his upcoming online showcase and appearances on television music programs.

Twice's 30 best songs: Kpop Herald

Kpop Herald reporters Yim Hyun-su and Kwon Yae-rim shared their list of the 30 best songs from Twice.

It was not easy to put together, since the group has so many great songs, said Yim, starting with “Firework” from its latest album, “More & More.” Though Yim is a huge fan of the title track from that album, the other tracks including the Latin pop number are great too, he added.

As for “More & More,” it does not have a powerful chorus as did “Feel Special” and “Fancy” and focuses on the melody instead. And for some reason that makes you want to hit the repeat button, said Yim.

“Like Ooh-Ahh,” the band’s debut single from 2015, came in sixth. It propelled Twice to stardom and in hindsight it was a good choice as a debut song, the reporters agreed.

And here are the top five: “Feel Special,” “What Is Love?” “Fancy,” “Cheer Up” and “TT.”
