Taeyang of boy band SF9 chatted with fans in a livestream on Saturday, touching on a wide range of topics, including his favorite snacks and working out.

“Have you eaten?” one viewer asked the singer, prompting him to smile gently.

Fans speculated about tteokbokki, which was the correct answer, as the singer has previously told fans that the spicy rice cake dish is his favorite food.

With relaxing music playing in the background, another fan asked which song he would like to perform during a concert.

“I would like to perform ‘Good Guy’ at a concert. I think it would be really fun. Don’t you think so?”

His choice was a hit as fans said they would love to see him perform the song.

While eating grapes, the singer also touched upon the subject of working out.

“I worked out after a meal yesterday. It was tough. I learned you don’t work out soon after eating.”

From gochujang, or Korean red chili paste, to spring onions, viewers saw the two try their best to nail down the recipe.

“Do you dice it first before putting them in there?” “Have we done something wrong?” the two spoke to each other in a worried voice as they weren’t entirely sure if they were following the steps correctly.

They also had a bit of a spat over their cooking style.

“Let me tell you why New isn’t good at cooking. Good cooks do things in a clean manner,” Q said, prompting his bandmated to ask who had told him that.

During the hourlong show, the two showed themselves eating the food as well, which they reviewed positively.

Kihyun of Monsta X covers Believer by Imagine Dragons

Kihyun of Monsta X pleasantly surprised fans with his cover of American rock band Imagine Dragons’ 2017 megahit “Believer.”

The rock tune with a chorus sung in a falsetto was a bold choice, as the track is not easy to sing. But the Monsta X member managed to pull it off, finishing the cover with impressive skills and clear English enunciation.

He also perfectly pulled off the emotionally charged chorus in a falsetto, racking up over 65,000 views in less than a day.

Many viewers approved of his cover, with one fan exclaiming, “Good job, Kihyun!” while another said, “You made me a believer again.”

The group released its first all-English album, “All About Luv,” earlier this year, garnering praise for their ease and prowess with the language.

Having ordered fried boneless chicken, a corndog and Coca-Cola, the singer seemed more than content with what was in front of him as he introduced each item.

One fan asked, “Can you eat all that all alone?” to which he said, “If I can’t, I’ll share with other people.”

“Why are you not showing the food?” another fan asked, as the singer said it was his concept.

With a box full of fried chicken, the singer said that he debated between pork, chicken and sashimi before ending up with fried chicken.

During that hourlong broadcast, the singer showed the food to viewers up close, explaining what he was eating in detail.

“There’s bread surrounding the sausage in this hotdog that feels like rice cake. It’s very chewy. It tastes good with the dip,” the singer said.
