Broadcast dates: Sept. 5-6

Starring: GFriend, Taemin, ITZY, Rocket Punch


Umji of GFriend took to V Live for a casual chat broadcast from the group’s dorm.

Barely wearing any makeup, the team’s youngest member said, “I’ve been thinking whether I should do it in a vertical or horizontal way for 15 minutes.”

She joked, “I’m also charging my phone right now, so there won’t be any excuse to turn off the broadcast due to lack of battery.”

Bandmate Yerin joined the broadcast, but didn’t appear on camera, telling viewers that she wasn’t satisfied with her look that day.

While talking about various topics such as movies and food, Umji was spotted yawning. Yerin jokingly said, “Is my story about cheese that boring?”

Umji replied, “No, that’s a misunderstanding! I yawn habitually although I’m not sleepy or tired. I even yawn at fan meetings.”

She then added that she’d been sleep-deprived lately as she often went to bed in the wee hours.

“But today, I’ll try to go to bed early,” she added.

Taemin set to impress with ‘Criminal’


Taemin’s grand entrance as a soloist is imminent.

The 27-year-old K-pop star, a member of SHINee, shared a sneak peek at his upcoming single “Criminal” on Friday via his V Live channel.

In the video, Taemin is decked out in a pirate-like outfit, dancing while wearing an eye patch and an elegant suit. He also appears handcuffed, and with some facial injuries, while performing the powerful choreography. Known for his unique dance flair, the clip set the tone for what’s to come from his dark-themed return.

Set to drop Monday, “Criminal” fronts the musician’s fourth solo album, “Never Gonna Dance Again: Act 1.”
