Chenle of NCT Dream did a solo livestream sporting newly trimmed hair.

“Many of you thought it was someone else, probably, since I don’t do livestreams as often,” he said, nodding and saying that he understood.

“It’s awkward doing this alone as expected ... it’s uninteresting when I don’t have anyone to pick on,” chortled the idol, who usually does V Live with Jisung.

Jisung had planned to come over and Chenle had thought about having “kalguksu,” or Korean noodle soup, with him but Jisung rescheduled and would come tomorrow, he told viewers.

Chenle turned down fans’ requests to drop hints about the album. His management company, S.M. Entertainment, confirmed Tuesday that NCT would come out with a new album but did not provide any specifics.

“It will be too obvious if I say something now,” he went on. “I will do it later without anyone noticing.” He is the band’s “spoiler fairy,” he admitted.

Lee Know, Felix and Hyunjin shared a short clip shot during a photo shoot with Dispatch.

“We’re being all chic and haughty for the shoot,” said Hyunjin, striking a pose alongside his bandmates.

Each one was given a mission: Lee Know had to make a three-line acrostic poem using “Back Door,” the title track from the band’s new album, “In Live”; Hyunjin had to come up with a headline for an article to go with the photo shoot; and Felix had to send a video message out to the band’s fans.

“In Live,” a repackage of the boy band’s first full-length album, “Go Live,” went on sale Sept. 14 and sold more than 175,000 copies, setting a record for the act.

Twice takes on gardening project

Jihyo, Jeongyeon and Sana of Twice dabbled in plants in the first episode of their “Home Gardening” series.

“I’ve been looking for a new hobby and wanted to try something I’ve come across and these two agreed to join me,” Sana explained.

“Sana looks the part but we are the unlikely (gardeners),” Jihyo noted as Jeongyeon nodded in agreement.

Their choice of plant was cactus. Upon taking out her kit, Jihyo confessed that she’d tried growing one once but failed. Jeongyeon kept asking if she was on the right track, carefully reading the instructions, while Jihyo confidently mixed the soil and put in the cactus.

“This is not a personality test, right?” asked Sana, laughing.

Jeongyeon was the first to finish and she named her plant “Oi Sobagi,” after a kind of kimchi made of cucumber. The other two took their time thinking of names for their cactuses and decorating the name posts with little straw hats.

Highlight's Yoon Dujun talks about movies

Yoon Dujun of Highlight reflected on his favorite movies and shared his thoughts with the fans.

He first thanked viewers for their compliments on his hair. He’d had the roots touched up but had wanted to cut it short, as short as it had been when he was serving his military duty -- “purely for the sake of convenience,” he said. But the company would not let him go that short.
He’d thought of livestreaming with bandmate Yang Yoseob but decided to do it later as he wasn’t sure whether they would need masks, said the performer.

“I wanted to talk about movies today and came prepared,” he said, showing off four sheets of A4 paper full of notes he’d spent three hours on.

“As you know, ‘Interstellar’ is the movie of my life,” Yoon said. He is a big fan of the sci-fi genre and dystopian movies in particular, he added.
