Yuta, Ten and Haechan of NCT had a dance party at a dark studio lit with string of colored bulbs that spelled out the band’s name.

After a brief dance break, they turned on the main lights and said hello. It reminded them of the time they practiced dancing as trainees, they reminisced. Yuta and Ten showed a move that they found very difficult to learn properly, acknowledging that it was impossible to master. Haechan copied the instructor who tricked them into holding their arm in a certain pose and then poked them in the other direction.

With Haechan’s help, the trio danced to “Make A Wish,” a song by the band’s subunit to which none of them belong to. Ten was amazed by how well they other two knew the choreography and Haechan assured that they do not have be perfect as it is not like they are performing it.

Meanwhile, Taeil and Renjun of NCT whipped up some Korean pancakes fit for the rainy weather in the band’s relay livestream.

Shotaro and Sungchan, the newest members of the 23-piece act, joined them as “guests.”

Taeil and Renjun welcomed the two to their “restaurant,” explaining that it was one with a single menu and the guests should cook and pay at least 100,000 won ($90) a head.

Taeil gave out the instructions to the rest, first to chop up the kimchi.

“Making kimchijeon is nothing new to me,” boasted Taeil, repressing chuckles and pretending to be well-versed in cooking kimchi-flavored pancake. Renjun pointed out that he saw Taeil carefully reading the recipe before going live making the latter chortle.

The three followed his command nonetheless and when they looked at the mixed batter of kimchi and flour, the performers agreed that they should add some shrimps.

“Is everyone okay with shrimps? No allergies?” Renjun checked before playfully adding that he will put them in anyways.

Lee Gikwang of Highlight said hello to fans after completing his national service at the National Police Agency.

“Please understand that I might not be smooth, I’m adjusting,” he said with a sheepish chuckle, “but I’m happy that I can communicate with you for the first time in a long while.”

For those who have not heard the news he reported that he has taken a role as a presenter for “Idol Wonderland,” a weekly show featuring idols, along with A.C.E’s Chan.

Admitting that he was feeling awkward, the musician thanked those who tuned into the livestream for spending their precious time with him. He said he had a lot of memories from serving. He also gained quite some weight -- his heaviest ever, actually -- having eaten well.

“About one, or one and a half months before, I started getting back into shape as I thought it was neglecting my duty as an idol,” he said with a smile asking if he looks okay.

Monsta X’s sidetracks not to be missed: Kpop Herald

(Starship Entertainment)

Kpop Herald reporters Hong Dam-young and Choi Ji-won discussed Monsta X’s third full-length album “Fatal Love.” The album was released earlier this month but they waited to receive the physical album bearing autographs from all the members, they explained, showing the red jacket and signatures.

The music video of main track “Love Killa” is a pleaser, both visually and aurally, mused Hong. Each of the six members were inspired by villains in Hollywood movies, such as Juheon’s Joker, added Choi.

The lead single stays in line with their other music and definitely has their signature sound. The powerful performance and the hook makes it irresistible, but the other tracks deserve a closer look, said Hong.

The rest of the 10-track album shows how much effort they put into the other songs, they said, adding that it was a testament to their musical abilities that they increasingly participated in producing the music.
