Dino of Seventeen treated himself to Korean-style Chinese food while livestreaming.

He had done some “voice-only” broadcasts but wanted to turn on the camera this time. He hadn’t had dinner either, so he decided to turn the episode into a meokbang, or eating while streaming live.

As Dino chatted and unwrapped his meal, Hoshi came to the table and chuckled, comparing his bandmate to the Q-tip in his hand.

“This was the only beanie I had at home,” said Dino of his beige headgear. “Joshua said I looked like a chestnut.” They both burst into laughter as Hoshi added a face to the Q-tip and held it up close to the camera.

Dino was indulging himself today while Hoshi and Seungkwan were restraining themselves, Dino said.

“Seungkwan takes such good care of himself that we say to each other that he will live forever,” Dino told viewers.

Ateez's Mingi catches up with fans

Mingi of Ateez kept fans up to speed after going live on his own for the first time since his birthday last month.

“Please understand that I’m bare-faced,” he said with a sheepish smile, apologizing for not livestreaming sooner.

Since the band wrapped up its promotion, he said, he’d been taking it slow -- watching dramas and working on music. He’d spent quite a lot of time on the band’s most recent EP, “Zero: Fever Part 1,” said the idol, answering fans’ questions.

He’d racked his brain trying to find a different way to express himself in rap while maintaining the spirit of the group.

“I tried to write (the rap part) so that many of our contemporaries would be able to empathize,” he said with an embarrassed chuckle. If viewers listen closely, they might see that there are many punch lines and quite a few interesting elements, added the rapper.

Super Junior holds singing contest

The bandmates of Super Junior competed against each other in the fourth season of their reality show.

Leeteuk said “K.R.Y,” the vocal trio of Kyuhyun, Ryeowook and Yesung, had an advantage.

“I suspected that someone would say that so I’ll go with an upbeat song,” said Kyuhyun.

“But you only listen to ballads,” said Yesung.

“Isn’t it an upbeat ballad?” teased Ryeowook.

Seeing that Kyuhyun picked a ’90s hit song from Cool, Eunhyuk started dancing even before the intro started. Shindong and Siwon joined in, while Leeteuk cracked everyone up by beating the drums in the corner.

Even though the youngest was confident that he could top the leader’s 76 points on the karaoke machine, he let out a triumphant scream when he earned 91 points and went around for high-fives.

Jinhwan of iKON chatted with fans briefly after hitting the gym, letting them know about the band’s plans for the immediate future.

“Tomorrow we’re planning to livestream together as a whole,” he told viewers.

At a time like this, it is not easy to stay connected with fans, and the musicians had talked to each other and agreed that going on V Live as a group on a regular basis was one way of doing so, said the leader of the band. They would also upload content on their YouTube channel every Tuesday from now on as part of a series called “iKON: ON.”

Flipping back the loose strands from his longish hair, he admitted that it had gotten quite long. Many fans told him to get a haircut, and he promised to try to show them a new hairstyle when the band comes out with new music.
