The bandmates of Stray Kids took to V Live the day before the release of their repackage album “In Live.”

They first congratulated Han on his birthday, which happened to fall the same day as the release, and then discussed their updated first full-length album.

“We’ve added eight new songs,” said Bang Chan. “We started working on this when we were touring in the US. We wanted to show our hip side, us in an unembellished state.”

Then Changbin discussed the significance of the first new song on the album, titled “Any.”

“It also reflects the reality that makes us want to say ‘no’ to everything,” he said, explaining that “ani” in Korean means “no.”

The eight-piece act stood up and gave viewers a taste of “We Go,” a song from the band’s subunit 3 Racha. Talking about those songs brought back great memories, they agreed.

Yeonjun of Tomorrow X Together livestreamed himself dancing for the second time to mark his birthday.

He apologized for letting fans wait for the sequel, explaining that the day he’d planned to do the second solo dance episode, he hadn’t been feeling well since he’d overdone an ab workout the day before.

Then came his bandmates turning off the studio lights and blasting out “Happy Birthday” while carrying a cake full of lit candles, making the birthday boy chortle.

Huening Kai also brought a gift -- lotion -- and Yeonjun pressed Beomgyu for one while Soobin told Yeonjun to tell the viewers about his present. Soobin had given him a bracelet the day before, but Yeonjun confided that he’d taken it off since didn’t know how to fasten the cord and worried that it might fall off while he was dancing.

“You’re a dummy who only knows how to dance!” Beomgyu joked, cracking up after adjusting it for him.

The bandmates of Super M gathered in front of the camera to keep fans up to speed.

At Baekhyun’s suggestion, they started the livestream by sharing tidbits about their day and Taemin apologetically said he’d overslept and gotten there two hours late. Everyone told him it happened sometimes, and Baekhyun admitted that it wasn’t easy to stay on top of things since they’d been busy recently.

“I was one hour late,” confessed Baekhyun, acknowledging that he often ran late. “And I believe it is the privilege of being a leader,” he joked, keeping a straight face.

The septet was eager to drop spoilers about their upcoming two-part cable TV variety show, “As We Wish,” readily admitting that they were in Ilsan and had filmed the show. Kai assured fans that his foot was recovering well and he was able to shoot the program.

Eunbi and Yujin of IZ*ONE returned to chat with fans after the group’s online concert “Oneiric Theater.”

They’d ordered chicken, Yujin said with a bashful smile, and it was already almost there, and they might have to keep it short. Or they could eat it while livestreaming, suggested Eunbi.

When the bell rang to signal the delivery’s arrival, Eunbi jumped out of her seat to answer.

“We’ve eaten so little because of the concert,” Minju said, staying off camera.

Several more members joined in for the late-night snack and Yujin said it had been a long time since they’d eaten so late and she would allow herself the luxury just that once. Everyone agreed that they deserved it as they’d poured themselves into preparing for the concert.

“I practiced for the tumbling scene whenever I could,” said Yena, thanking her bandmates for their compliments.
