Boy band GOT7's talk show "GOT2Day 2016" aired its second episode featuring Yougyeom and Jackson on Friday.

Jackson congratulated Yougyeom on his victory on the latest episode of dancing competition program "Hit the Stage," then mimicked some dance moves that brought Yougyeom the trophy.

Jackson also complimented Yougyeom's dancing skills on the talk show.

"I see that all seven members of GOT7 are adept at dancing," Jackson mused. "The thing is, the body condition of the rest of us six members affects our performance, while Yougyeom makes stable and decent performances no matter whether he is at his best or worst condition."

After a slew of compliments by Jackson made him feel awkward, Yugyeom responded that such "affection from a bandmate" was the secret behind his victory in "Hit the Stage."

Jackson's relay of acclaim continued. "When Yugyeom dances, it does not seem like Yugyeom dances along to the beat," he said. "Instead, the beat keeps along with Yugyeom's choreography."

"That was the biggest compliment I've ever received," Yugyeom answered.

GOT7 resumed their activities by releasing "Hard Carry," the lead track off "Flight Log: Turbulence," which was released Tuesday.


A backstage clip featuring boy band BTOB's four-member subunit, BTOB-Blue, was released Friday through Naver’s V app.

The clip was taped at the venue of "Show! Music Core," where the vocal subunit, made up of Eunkwang, Changsub, Hyunsik and Sungjae, debuted their single "Stand By Me," released on Sept. 19.

The subunit, who had debuted as BTOB in 2012, acted as if they were starting fresh.

"I was so nervous that I could not sleep at all," said Hyunsik, bursting into laughter.

Drawing some 1,700 fan club members, the largest ever, at the venue, Sungjae regretted that the stage on Sept. 24 was the only planned activity for the subunit.

Sungjae added there would be more one-time projects within the group coming up, similar to BTOB-Blue.

After the performance was over, Eunkwang said the subunit activity was a "part of BTOB's big picture" and demanded fans support the group.

Kim Ju-na

Rookie singer Kim Ju-na held an outdoor live performance Friday in the Sinchon area, Seoul, for the first time since she debuted last year.

A couple of hours before beginning busking, Kim ate a bowl of bibimbap before Naver’s V app viewers, while announcing her live concert.

Kim, who released "Summer Dream" in September, performed live "No One" by Alicia Keys, "Mercy" by Duffy and "Come Back Home" by 2NE1. The live performance that started at 5 p.m. aired through the V app as well.

Kim is poised to hold another outdoor concert Saturday at 3 p.m.

Kim is known to have featured in girl group audition program "Produce 101" and is the younger half-sibling of actor Kim Soo-hyun.

Naver’s real-time broadcasting app V allows fans to interact with their favorite K-pop stars through live broadcasts. The app is available for Android and iOS. For more information, visit http://www.vlive.tv.
