Bang Chan of Stray Kids listened to all 17 tracks from the band’s repackage album in the 72nd episode of his solo segment.

Admitting that he had his makeup on, he let viewers get a close look at his face and was glad that they liked his red hair.

Putting on the first track, “The Tortoise and the Hare,” he sang and rapped along but turned it off before it finished, admitting with a chuckle that it was awkward listening to it.

“It is experimental,” said the band leader, who wrote the song with Changbin and Han. They started working on the song when they were touring the US and let themselves write it as it came to them, he explained, saying it had come out quite interesting.

Before listening to “Back Door,” he thanked fans for a successful week of promotional activities, saying, “As you know, the song gets more intense and exciting toward the last part and we so much wanted to enjoy it with you.”

Twice's Tzuyu enjoys small talk with fans

Tzuyu of Twice went live from her room and talked to her fans for about an hour and a half.

“I’ve bought a new lamp,” she said happily, adjusting the light with a small remote controller.

She’d thought about telling Once, the band’s official fandom community, not to sleep too late on Instagram Story the night before but had given up upon seeing the time.

“I wanted to do V Live very much ... it’s been quite a while ... and kept thinking about this since yesterday telling myself that I’ll do it when I wake up,” said the idol with a smile.

She’d had a day off the previous day and pampered herself with a massage and a facial. It was the first time in a while and felt really good, she told viewers, and she also had a Pilates session.

As for the upcoming Chuseok holidays, or Korean Thanksgiving, Tzuyu said she cannot go see her family like many of her fans. “But I hope everyone can enjoy good food and have a good time,” she said.

Stray Kids' I.N talks on the move

I.N of Stray Kids took to V Live on his way to school for the 35th episode of his solo segment.

He’d planned to livestream a little later but pressed the start button by accident, he confided with a grin. He’d done the previous episode on his way to school as well, but this time he was wearing his fall uniform as it was somewhat chilly in the morning.

The idol readily gave in to fans’ requests for behind-the-scenes tidbits about the band’s promotional activities.

“I have this part where I dance with Han, pretending to play basketball, and we cannot help ourselves from cracking up whenever our eyes meet,” he said.

As for the music video for “Ex,” which had come out at midnight, he said he really liked it and was surprised at how good Lee Know was at acting.

“All of us got better at acting,” he chuckled.

NCT dropped an 89-second video hailing its full-length album “NCT 2020: Resonance Pt. 1,” which will feature all 21 of its members as well as two who will join the band as a new subunit soon.

The video is a dazzling collage of clips from the music videos of all the subunits -- NCT 127, NCT Dream, NCT U and WayV -- and closes with a gleaming metallic 2020.

The album comes two years after the then-18-piece act’s “Empathy,” carrying on the narrative that the artists will empathize through dreams and become one through music.

As the album title shows, it is the first installment of the new album and will have 12 tracks, including “Make a Wish” and “From Home.” It will be unveiled Oct. 12.
