“LieV” is an original V Live program in which celebrities hold livestreams and chat with fans while lying in bed. Just as many couples hold FaceTime sessions before bed, “LieV” gives fans more intimate time with their favorite stars.

Launched in September 2016 on the V Cookie channel, over 80 K-pop acts have appeared in a total of 100 episodes.

“It was really nice to crawl into bed and chat. Fans loved it too,” Wendy of girl group Red Velvet said in a special clip that recaps the past 100 episodes.

Here are three interesting bits of “LieV” trivia:

1. The most-watched episode featured EXO-CBX

The most-watched episode of all 100 “LieV” broadcasts came from EXO-CBX, the three-member subunit of immensely popular K-pop band EXO.

Chen, Baekhyun and Xiumin went live in their pajamas in October 2016, talking about ways to escape from daily life. During the broadcast, Xiumin confessed to having no desire to do so.

The clip had been watched 3,320,718 times as of Monday morning.

2. SNSD’s Yuri fell asleep during an episode

The eight girls from SNSD, or Girls’ Generation, held a “LieV” broadcast in August 2017 to mark their 10th anniversary.

It was the first time that the entire group appeared in a “LieV” episode. It was also the first time a K-pop idol -- Yuri -- actually fell asleep during a livestream.

3. GOT7’s Jinyoung, Youngjae and JB are the most frequent “LieV” stars.

The bandmates appeared in three “LieV” episodes, separately and as a group.

Jinyoung, in his solo appearance, talked heart to heart with fans who might be feeling insecure or going through rough patches in their lives.

“Just because you are not seen, don’t think you don’t have an effect,” he said.
