Hongjoong of Ateez told fans to ask him anything Monday, promising he would answer as much as he could as he went live from his studio.

“After wrapping up the promotion activities, I‘ve resumed working on music like I’ve wanted and am looking up and listening to songs,” he said.

“I also am getting myself used to reading books,” said the idol. He wants to expand his vocabulary so that he can write better lyrics and also hopes to find inspiration, he explained.

He has been going through his playlists and thought it would be nice to listen to songs he loved when he was a trainee together with his fans.

He started the V Live with Block B’s “Is It Just Me” and will put on more of his favorites going back four or five years, he said excitedly.

“The reason I picked the song as the first is that I really want to see you Atiny and wanted to ask the question,” he said with a big grin, addressing the band’s official fan community.

Honda Hitomi of IZ*ONE livestreamed on her own, showing her room to fans for the first time.

“I‘m so nervous,” she confided with a shaky laugh when Yabuki Nako knocked on her door. “I knew you would come,” she said chuckling, thanking the bandmate for relieving her nervousness.

Admitting that she came unprepared, Honda asked viewers to send as many questions as possible.

As for a request to share a tidbit about performing Park Jiyoon’s “Adult Ceremony,” a unit performance along with Kim Minju, Yabuki and Cho Yuri for the group‘s first online concert that was held a week ago, she said it was a big change for her as she only has done “cute” performances before.

Staying off camera, Yabuki stayed with Honda and talked about a number of subjects that led to their heights. Yabuki said she still has a chance to grow taller, having had her bones checked, and wishes to reach 163 centimeters.

TXT takes it easy for a day

The bandmates of Tomorrow X Together had fun taking it easy and shooting the sixth episode of their reality show.

Taking a look around a small rooftop garden that led to a full kitchen and a cozy living room, the five bandmates each found what they liked. Soobin went for a bag of cookies while Taehyun and Huening Kai played with a motion-sensor camera.

Beomgyu checked if anyone else was hungry, having brought a stack of food including tteokbokki.

“Soobin and Beomgyu are not understanding when it comes to food, so they will do fine,” Taehyun told fans as the discerning duo prepared to make tteokbokki and dumplings.

As the leader tried to make himself useful in the kitchen, Huening Kai fiddled with a virtual reality game machine as Taehyun asked Yeonjun to play with him.

“I‘ve never seen Soobin cook,” mumbled Yeonjun, later coming up to check and declaring that Soobin and Beomgyu had made soup instead of tteokbokki.

Nayeon of Twice went live briefly the day before her birthday.

She wanted to chat with fans on the day or the day before, but chose to do it on Monday -- “while I‘ve got my makeup on” -- since she would not look as pretty on her birthday.

“I look so haggard since I’ve been shooting from early this morning,” she murmured.

Munching on crackers, the idol thanked viewers for sending happy birthday messages and promised that she would do another short live broadcast the next day.

She is planning to have a birthday party with her bandmates later in the evening and will go grocery shopping, she said, and will have a meal with her family the next day.

“I will not livestream the party, though,” she said with a bashful smile, “but will have a good time with the members.”
