Bang Chan of Stray Kids thanked Stay, the band’s official fandom community, in the 63rd episode of his weekly solo segment.

He first talked about wrapping up the promotion activities for “Go Live!” the band’s first full-length album. After the last appearance on television for “Easy,” a follow-up for lead single “God’s Menu,” the bandmates held an online fan meeting that ended only a few hours before the livestream.

“The mini fan meet was so fun, so like ‘Stray Kids,’” he said chuckling.

“Time flew really fast this time which shows how exciting it was for us,” the leader of the band went on. “All the more because we came out with new music after quite a while.”

Although they could not meet their fans in person, “we knew and felt that you were watching and supporting us wherever you are,” the idol said, giving them two thumbs up.

When fans complimented him on his big smile, he said he must have picked it up from his bandmates adding, “All the members have such beautiful, genuine smiles and just looking at them makes you want to smile as well.”

Blackpink's Jennie says hi after TV appearance

Jennie of Blackpink livestreamed briefly from a car after performing “How You Like That” for a TV music show.

“I would have been greeting you (in person after the performance) by now but these days I can’t so I turned on the V Live instead,” she said, waving into the camera.

She has missed them as well, the idol said admitting that it has been a while she has come to V Live. She said she was feeling great, especially since the group has won the first place on the music show for two consecutive weeks, adding the sixth trophy for the single.

“I was the first to be ready to go home,” said Jennie indulging fans’ request with making a heart with her fingers and giving a wink. Her two pets probably are waiting for her, she added, agreeing with comments that they are really cute.

Her chat with fans was cut short, however, due to poor connection and she hurriedly said goodbye.

Junghan of Seventeen talked to fans for a while via Naver’s V Live after an online fan meeting session.

“You may think that we’re taking it slow as there are less visible activities but we‘re busy as usual,” he said.

With a couple of tiger plush dolls peeking from behind his back as a hint, he asked if the viewers can tell whose room he is in then invited the owner of the room Hoshi to join him in front of the camera.

The two talked about how Hoshi has come to wear colorful clothes these days, taking over as the standout dresser replacing Vernon whose taste has shifted to a monochrome palette. Junghan tried on the bandmate’s multicolored windbreaker and the latter showed another eye-catching item of clothing: a tie-dye hoodie.

Telling each other that they do not have to have a grand theme, they read viewers’ comments. Hoshi shared some notes he made for the band’s Japan tour and showed all the plushies and cushions in his room.

Stray Kids hosts mini fan meet

(Naver's V Live)

Stray Kids hosted an online party to soothe fans and themselves after wrapping up promotion activities for “Easy.”

The eight-piece act entertained viewers for almost two hours talking and playing “mini” games.

First round was a mini basketball and Bang Chan demonstrated how to play it and I.N pushed a button -- “there is a secret!” -- to start the small basketball hoop toy move sideways.

Bang Chan and Seungmin went against Changbin and Hyunjin but as the scores got mixed up, they decided Seungmin and Changbin, who turned out to be unexpectedly good, should settle by throwing three balls. Seungmin made two and Changbin missed the first two.

They also challenged themselves to picking dolls from a small arcade claw machine and eating chips while making the smallest sound before turning serious and talking about the most grateful moment for each other during the promotion.

“It must not be easy to lead us seven,” Han said of the leader. “But once again, he has been leading the way, caring for all.”
