BTS released another version of the music video for its megahit single “Dynamite” at midnight local time.

To the delight of fans, the second clip included bloopers that showed a joyful “BTS in action, all of them having fun together.”

The bandmates burst into laughter as they make funny faces and joke around with each other, all cheerful and mischievous as they shoot the video. Jungkook starts off with a cute dance and Jimin turns up his sweetness, looking into the camera with an endearing expression while V cracks everyone up by missing a beat.

The original music video set a record, topping 101 million views within 24 hours of its release, according to YouTube’s public views counter, and the B-side version was the second-most-trending video on the platform, amassing over 12 million views within 10 hours of its release.

The septet will premiere the single at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards set to be held in New York on Aug. 30.

Stray Kids' I.N says good morning

I.N of Stray Kids surprised fans by going live from his car Tuesday morning on his way to school.

“I wondered for a moment if it was too early, but it is nice to start the day early,” he said. Breaking into a big smile upon seeing a fan’s comment calling him a “hobbang,” or a Korean steamed bun filled with sweet red bean paste, he acknowledged that he was puffy. “Why are my eyes so puffed up?” he asked, and then answered that they were always like that.

The idol tilted the camera to show viewers his school uniform. He was supposed to wake up at 6 and was slightly annoyed when he woke up at 5:40 a.m., but he’d fallen asleep again for another 20 minutes, he said in reply to a question.

About six minutes into the livestream, fans sent him 10 million hearts and he admitted that it felt strange to receive so much support in the early hours of the day.

Taehyun of Tomorrow X Together livestreamed alone and answered some of the questions fans had sent in in advance.

He was not sure what his strong suit was, but said the fact that he couldn’t find a weakness must be it, he said.

“My personality, maybe. That I don’t get easily swayed and that I have a firm vision for myself. But at the same time, I can be flexible as long as I can justify the logic,” said the idol, adding that if he could not accept something he would not follow through.

He thanked fans for telling him that they found solace in him and told them he gained strength from them in turn.

“Reading the mails you sent boosts me and the messages as well. But the biggest source of energy for me is the rooting sounds. It physically lifts me up. It is quite a different feeling,” he told viewers.

GOT7's Youngjae commiserates with fans


Youngjae of GOT7 chatted with fans via a voice-only broadcast on Naver’s V Live.

“Why am I not showing my face? Because my stubs are covering my face,” he chuckled, and denied reassuring comments from fans who were sure he still looked great.

He was lying down at home with his pet dog Coco and was bored, just like many of his fans. Coco had not met Dalgyeom, Yugyeom’s puppy, he said, but Dalgyeom must have outgrown Coco since “Coco only grows in temper,” joked the musician.

He expressed his appreciation for the fans who agreed with his decision to sign an organ donation pledge a few days earlier, and for those who said they would join him.

“But this is not something to force on somebody. It should be voluntary, I believe. I just thought it would be a meaningful act if I could help save someone by leaving a part of me after I die,” said Youngjae.
