Nayeon of Twice took to V Live while waiting for an appointment at her company.

“I’m all puffy today,” she said, looking at herself on the screen with a rueful smile. She had been feeling slightly under the weather since the evening before, and Jihyo was surprised to see her bloated that morning, said the idol, sounding a little hoarse.

She had come straight to the company as soon as she woke up and started practicing at the vocal training studio. She hadn’t had time to eat lunch and didn’t have much of an appetite anyway, probably because she hadn’t been awake for long, she told viewers. Instead she was drinking her “life-saving” hazelnut latte from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.

Nayeon apologized to viewers for the unstable connection, “maybe because the studio is in the basement of the building,” she explained. She tried turning the livestream off and back on, but the problem didn’t go away.

“This is way too laggy ... maybe I should come back some other day,” she said, promising to stay longer next time.

Kang Daniel checks in as he wraps up promotion

Kang Daniel thanked fans for supporting him as he wrapped up the promotion for “Magenta,” his second solo EP.

It was sad that he could not feel his fans’ presence throughout the events, he said, but he was grateful to have picked up trophies from music chart programs and three awards from a recent music award ceremony.

What he appreciated even more was the chance to have his fans in the audience at the ceremony.

“It surely was different, the energy on the stage,” he said. “Magenta” is centered on performance and interaction with the audience is crucial, according to the idol. Doing without felt like the time he was busking as a b-boy with no one around, he said.

“I personally think the album was experimental, and I was happy that many of you still liked it ... although you tell me you would like whatever I do,” said Kang. He also learned a lot and will be able to apply those lessons to the next EP.

“It will be quite a while, but I’m a future-oriented person,” he said with a grin.

SF9's Taeyang plays online game with fans

Taeyang of SF9 came on to Naver’s V Live to spend what remained of the weekend with fans. He played an online racing game for almost an hour.

Sporting a new pair of glasses that would protect his eyes against the glare from the screen, he chatted with fans for a while before setting up his tablets -- one for reading comments from viewers and another one to play KartRider together.

“Let me take off my glasses and play this in earnest,” he said.

“I came prepared,” he declared, putting on a white helmet. He’d even found a seat belt to enhance the mood of driving a car, said Taeyang with a triumphant chuckle.

“I’m all for speed,” he went on, “and I will reward those who won the (level) L2 as I asked with an exclusive round.”

The Boyz's Q happy to spend break with fans

Q of The Boyz went live for a brief chat with fans between practice sessions.

“I will stay for a short while and go back to practice,” he said after assuring fans that his suddenly swollen double eyelids would return to normal in a couple of days as usual.

Many viewers commented on what he was wearing as well: a red baseball cap (“one of my favorites!), black T-shirt with inside-out seams (“yes, it is intentional”) and two beaded bracelets made by the band’s team.

Meanwhile, the performer said he had set a certain goal weight for himself and wouldn’t lose any more than necessary. He used to eat whatever was recommended when it was time to eat but had decided to have salad unless he had cravings for something else, he added.

“Although the livestream was not long, it was nice talking to you,” said Q, wishing everyone a happy Sunday and an energy-filled start to the new week.
