Yang Yoseob of Highlight completed his military duty and caught up with fans in a livestream that lasted over 2 1/2 hours.

“Many of you have waited for me ... since (I enlisted) on Jan. 24 last year ... and celebrated together,” he said.

He will resume his career as a music show host and is going to practice every single day to let out his pent-up energy, said the performer, who is eager to sing again.

“It has been a while since I’m seeing you and I’m nervous that I may make a mistake or be not funny enough. I couldn’t sleep well last night,” he confided.

Referring to his bandmates Lee Kigwang and Son Dongwoon, who are still performing their military duty, Yang asked fans to wait with him. The band can play all together in less than 100 days, he added.

TXT's Taehyun takes fans along on big day

Taehyun of Tomorrow X Together gave fans a peek backstage on the day of the band’s media showcase in May.

“I’m on my way to the media showcase,” he said to the camera. Dressed casually in a T-shirt and shorts, he explained that he keeps it informal when he has an important activity.

He wanted to watch the online showcase with fans while communicating but learned that he would be recording “Weekly Idol,” a weekly entertainment program, for six hours.

“So I have two big events, big at least for me,” he sighed.

He switched the camera back on after a rehearsal and after getting his makeup done for the media showcase.

“Are you nervous?” he asked Soobin, who was getting ready to change. The two agreed that they weren’t nervous at all. But after the showcase, Taehyun seemed happy that they made it without blundering.

“I did blabber a bit ... it never is as perfect as the rehearsal,” he muttered. “But one down, one to go.”

Dahyun and Tzuyu of Twice did a brief “voice-only” livestream while on the move.

“Hi, Once!” Dahyun said, greeting the band’s official fandom community, and Tzuyu giggled and told her that there wasn’t a single person tuned in yet.

They were in their car after traveling to their company, Dahyun said, and Tzuyu volunteered to share a tidbit.

“I slept at 8 in the morning,” she said. She’d been watching YouTube videos and decided to binge-watch, telling herself that she didn’t get to do it very often.

“But I wasn’t that tired,” the idol went on, “maybe because we didn’t have practice.”

Dahyun sympathized, admitting there were times when she too would find herself clicking on one recommended video after another even though she was sleepy.

The pair apologized for having to leave after only seven minutes and promised to come back as soon as possible.

“It still means something (to us) that we’ve been able to chat with you,” said Dahyun.

SF9's Youngbin bares his emotions

Youngbin of SF9 had a candid chat with fans, letting out his feelings.

His day had started early, at around 4 a.m., for a group activity and he’d had a lot of fun. But he’d shouted a little too much, he said, suppressing a chuckle and explaining his somewhat hoarse voice.

“I know you would be curious but please wait ... it will be unveiled soon,” he assured viewers.

They have a lot planned for this year but as they cannot meet their fans in person due to the pandemic, they are thinking of ways to reach out nonetheless.

“There were some contents that we’ve prepared, those we believe you would want to see such as a reality program, and got canceled as abruptly as a week before it was ready,” he said. They’d even had a full week earmarked for a trip to Jeju Island, and they were so frustrated, confessed the leader of the nine-piece act.

“The fact that you are there, asking after us and being disheartened with us, really is a solace,” said Youngbin.
