I.N of Stray Kids enjoyed close to an hour of chatting with fans in the 33rd episode of his solo segment.

“Oh my, I’m so puffy today,” he murmured, prodding his eyes while looking at the camera. “Please bear with me even though I may not look pretty.”

At the request of some viewers, he recapped the online chat he’d had with fans the night before. First he typed the Hangeul character “ieung” three times, since it’s the first letter in his name when he writes it in Korean.

Nobody got the hint, so he changed his approach and tried to be mysterious, saying he was talking about someone good-looking. He must mean either Han, Changbin or Lee Know, fans guessed. The next hint, “iced Americano,” narrowed down the choices to Han and Lee Know.

“I was thinking to myself I must have mentioned many times that I liked the beverage too,” said I.N, and he had to give out two more clues.

He’d actually had to get used to iced Americano, he confided. Not long after his debut, he heard that the cold drink helped relieve puffiness and he tried it. Since then, he’s acquired a taste for it.

TXT takes a look back at making of 2nd EP

Tomorrow X Together uploaded a video the band shot days before coming out with new music in May, in the first episode of its reality show’s third season.

“We’ll join the rest of the members, who must be waiting to eat together,” Beomgyu said, sitting in a car next to Yeonjun.

The band would practice dancing and he would also showcase the guitar skills he’d been honing, Beomgyu added.

They’d been practicing dance moves for a long while and singing live for a couple of months, they said, and only two days before unveiling the second EP they were ready to go onstage. Moa, the band’s official fandom community, might find them unfamiliar, the pair agreed.

The other three band members, on the other hand, could not wait anymore and started to eat first. Yeonjun took the camera along to his studio, where he took a break listening to his recent favorite, Penomeco’s “No. 5.” And after a live rehearsal for the online showcase event, Yeonjun gave viewers a glimpse of each band member -- sprawled out and exhausted.

IZ*ONE's Chaeyeon reaches out after meeting fans

Chaeyeon of IZ*ONE took to V Live after meeting some fans online.

“These are the messages fans wrote for me when we had a concert in Saitama,” Japan, she explained, gesturing toward the wall behind her, where a poster of Chaeyeon was filled with handwritten messages.

She was happy to have met many of her fans and had gotten the new hairstyle and the off-the-shoulder top that some fans requested.

She’d also dyed her hair: light brown from the roots to the shoulder and blond from the shoulder down. It was actually rose-gold at first but had faded a little bit, said the idol, but she liked it.

“I was planning to read as many comments from you as possible, but I got distracted a little,” eating watermelon and live octopus, she said, asking fans to join the group’s upcoming online concert.

Jongho of Ateez said hello to fans during a break between practice sessions.

“It feels awkward livestreaming alone for the first time after quite a while,” he admitted with a sheepish chuckle, later promising to do it more often.

Microphone in hand, he told viewers that he would listen to some songs he wanted to recommend and sing some as well. He first put on Jung Seunghwan’s “Ongnyeondong,” a song he’s really into these days.

“I listen to this all the time these days, even when I’m in the shower ... this is so good,” Jongho said, singing along.

He was already a huge fan and admirer but gained even more respect for Jung after watching him on “Begin Again Korea,” a television show in which musicians travel around the country and perform at random places.

Jongho sang and talked about a number of songs he liked, and said he might as well hold a mini-recital someday.
