Bang Chan of Stray Kids scrapped the “voice-only” format and turned the camera back on for the 69th episode of his weekly solo segment.

“It feels like it’s been (too) long, probably because it was voice-only last week,” he began. He’d wanted to give it a try and the broadcast surely had a radio show vibe, he said, but he’d listened to it later and thought he could have done better.

“And my singing voice ... it was so raw,” he cackled.

The musician also talked about his recently uploaded vlog. Playing UNO with Felix was the highlight of the video, he said with a chuckle, replaying a clip.

He then shared some songs from his playlist, such as the new cover from Young K of DAY6 (“Yes, I’m a Young K fan”) and Jon Bellion’s “Stupid Deep,” which boasts a unique command of instruments and synth sounds.

TXT's Soobin rewards himself with big meal

Soobin of Tomorrow X Together treated himself to a hefty dinner while talking to his fans.

“Last time I was on V Live, I asked you what you wanted me to do next time and there were many ideas, but quite a lot of you said you just liked hearing me talk,” he said. But he was starving and ordered dinner.

“This may be the only time I have to eat, since today’s schedule is quite tight,” said the performer, opening the lids on his meal and happily sniffing the spicy steamed seafood.

He’d barely eaten the day before and as soon as he got home, he’d had a late-night snack delivered. Since he was very hungry and wanted seafood, he splurged on an abalone dish, but the portion was very small despite being expensive.

“I couldn’t fill my stomach, so I ordered this today,” said Soobin with a grin.

Twice’s Tzuyu shows off zither skills

Tzuyu of Twice livestreamed from her room after a Chinese zither lesson.

“It’s been a while I’m talking to you on V Live alone,” she said, telling viewers in advance that she had an activity scheduled soon and wouldn’t be able to stay for too long.

Tinkering with the musical instrument in front of her, she admitted that she was unsure if she should let fans hear what she’d learned so far or wait to get better with practice.

Fans wanted to hear her play, of course, and she obliged by putting some tape on the tip of her finger.

“I’ve been practicing quite a lot recently but am so far from being perfect. ... I’ll be better next time I play, though,” promised the idol.

She’d pleaded with her teacher to let her learn the song, she explained, and with a small sigh she began to strum the string instrument.

“I still have a long way to go,” she said with a sheepish grin.

Blackpink and Selena Gomez had a chat via a video call in the 28-second teaser trailer for their collaborative work “Ice Cream.”

Following the previous day’s release of the poster, and confirming that she is the “mystery artist” featured on the band’s upcoming album, the American singer called up the band members -- Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa and Rose -- in the short video. “I’ve been a fan of you guys and this is a big, big dream for me,” she said.

The quartet were gleeful and giddy with excitement, going “Aw” at Gomez’s remarks and thanking her for teaming up with them.

There had been wild speculation about who would collaborate with the four-piece act after the success of “Sour Candy” with Lady Gaga in May.

“Ice Cream” will be unveiled Aug. 28.
