Jin of BTS appeared at the nation’s largest airport wearing traditional Korean costume hanbok, the reason of which was revealed in the latest episode of the group’s variety show “Run BTS!” which aired via Naver’s V app Tuesday.

Following the previous episode in which BTS competed in a jumping photo challenge that made the bandmates laugh their heads off, they competed in a spot-the-difference puzzle and game of bingo.

After the three rounds, the final loser was to be tasked with wearing hanbok to the airport when the group traveled to Hong Kong to perform at the 2017 Mnet Asian Music Awards.

As Jin and Suga failed at the first photo shoot challenge, one of them was set to be the final loser.

Jin failed both rounds during the spot-the-difference puzzle, while Suga, though not in an overwhelming victory, scored points.

In the final game of bingo, Jin beat Suga in a close call, but the victory could not save him from being declared the final loser.

“But actually hanbok is really beautiful,” Jimin said in encouragement for Jin.

“You know there will be articles (with headlines like) ‘Fashionista Jin, hanbok this time?’” Jungkook laughed.

Kriesha Chu

Filipino-American singer Kriesha Chu unveiled her music video for “Like Paradise” via Naver’s V app at the beginning of Wednesday.

“Like Paradise” is the lead track off the singer’s upcoming mini album “Dream of Paradise.”

The music video gained much attention after its prologue was released, as it features the tangled love story between Chu, a trainee from Chu’s agency Minjoo and Kim Si-hyun, who appeared on the second season of Mnet’s “Produce 101.”

“To reward the heated attention from the fans, we decided to prerelease the music video. Please look forward to the upcoming album,” Chu’s agency Urban Works Media said.

The semifinalist of season six of “K-pop Star” debuted as a solo singer in May last year with two-track single album “Trouble.”

Chu was set to release her first mini album “Dream of Paradise” on Wednesday at noon.

Stray Kids

Boy band Stray Kids revealed the group’s plan for its upcoming debut in a live broadcast held via Naver’s V app Tuesday.

During the broadcast, the group communicated with fans and answered their questions, such as on their favorite late-night meal (fried chicken).

The group then made a surprise announcement that it would release their pre-debut album “Mixtape” on Monday.

Though the band’s upcoming release had been hinted at as the bandmates had released various pre-debut teasers such as individual photos, it was the first time the group officially announced the release of the album.

The group also revealed that it would recruit members for its fan club, though the details of the recruitment would be announced at a later date.

Nine-member act Stray Kids is a boy band that debuted through the Mnet competition show of the same name. The band is JYP Entertainment’s first K-pop band project since "Sixteen" in 2015.

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.
