The bandmates of BTS continued playing games in the 108th episode of “Run BTS!”

For the third round, they were to play another racing game, “Tales Runner,” but this time as characters of their choice. Jin and Suga were not even sure what game they were playing, but joined anyway. Throughout the race, J-Hope and Jin continued to ask about the basics of the game.

Jungkook came in first again, with V next, and Jimin protested that the two were the only ones doing well. When the results were the same after a second round, the rest of the bandmates decided the first two races were warmups.

“This just reminds me of RM when he was in high school,” chuckled J-Hope, pointing at RM’s bulky avatar in a hoodie.

Jin finally managed to make headway and was catching up with Jungkook, who’d just slipped.

“Oh! It’s Jungkook!” said Jin, and without hesitation RM said to kill him.

Tomorrow X Together's Huening Kai makes penguin

Huening Kai of TXT tried making a clay penguin on his own.

“Why was I touching white clay?” he yelped, thanking the viewers for letting him know. He opened bags of red and blue clay instead, and mixed them together to make purple dough.

He will make it quite big -- “the bigger the better, right?” -- and keep it himself, said the idol, adding that anything cute belonged to him. He even named his penguin: Pib, short for “penguin is best.”

Replying to some viewers’ questions, Huening Kai shared his recent playlist, which included songs by Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars.

“I sang ‘Just the Way You Are’ for a singing contest when I was a second grader in middle school,” he recalled, wondering out loud whether anyone had captured it on video.

“Please don’t look it up. I totally blew it trying to sing the falsetto part with a normal voice,” he said, quickly recovering from a bout of laughter.

NCT Dream's Renjun checks in with fans

Renjun of NCT Dream chatted briefly with fans on his way home.

He’d watched bandmate Jaemin’s livestream the day before, he said, and was doing radio as Jaemin mentioned.

“Can you guess what I had for dinner?” he said when viewers asked him if he’d had dinner. He gave them a hint, saying it had two syllables. After a few attempts, some viewers guessed right: jjamppong, a Korean Chinese spicy noodle soup.

When talking about Way V’s Yangyang, the performer confessed that their first meeting had been kind of awkward. Renjun had just debuted, while Yangyang was a trainee and they hadn’t known what to say to each other. But they, along with Xiaojun of Way V, got close as they spent more time practicing together and now they often hang out.

As he got close to home, he sang the band’s “Reload” and said, “The minute I heard this song, I instantly loved it -- the gentle guitar sound and the lyrics.”

Twice's Chaeyoung wants to play piano

Chaeyoung of Twice took to V Live all by herself from a studio at her company.

Agreeing that it had been quite a while, she confided that she’d turned on the live broadcast out of boredom. The idol tinkered with the piano in front of her and admitted that she wasn’t very good at it. She’d forgotten what little she’d learned as she wasn’t taking lessons these days, she said.

“Does anybody know the OST of ‘Inuyasha’?” she asked, referring to the soundtrack from the Japanese anime film “Inuyasha the Movie: Affections Touching Across Time.” She said she loved the theme song and was trying to write down the notes so she could try playing it on the piano.

“I’m so bad!” Chaeyoung said with a small shriek, but with a bashful smile she gave it another try.

“I have to do my ‘Melody Project,’” she said, asking viewers for recommendations for the group’s solo rearrangement project series.
