The bandmates of Tomorrow X Together wished their fans happy holidays on Chuseok, or Korean Thanksgiving.

They read through the comments from viewers and felt bad that some of them had a test right after the holidays. Seeing that one was worried about one's test coincided with the date of the band's comeback, on Oct. 26, Beomgyu told the fan to be done with the test early and tune into the release. But Soobin, predicting that the test will take several days, suggested the fan to wait until their first appearance on a television music chart show Thursday evening.

"It has been three, four years since I've spent New Year's Day or Chuseok with family or relatives," noted Beomgyu. The quintet admitted that they have not been to their homes ever since they become trainees and instead spent the holidays with each other.

While Beomgyu and Taehyun wondered what their parents are doing on the day, Soobin said that his have sent him a photo -- enjoying half moon-shaped rice cake and traditional Korean pancakes -- and teased him.

Enhyphen plays traditional games on Chuseok

The bandmates of Enhyphen fully enjoyed Chuseok playing traditional games and making songpyeon, moon-shaped rice cake Koreans eat during the autumn holidays.

Changed into hanbok, or Korean traditional costume, they sat down and played rounds of yutnori, a traditional board game. Sunwoo first explained the basic rules for Niki, who has never played the game, and split into two teams.

Jay's red team was only two stops aways from reaching the goal and everyone roared when the leader threw the yut sticks and came up with one. But the opponents were not lucky enough to beat the odds and Jay's team made it safely the next time.

For the next game of jegi chagi, the blue team won as Jake managed to kick the paper shuttlecock into the air four times without dropping it on the floor.

The boys were most excited about making the rice cakes, however. They decided to make five each and be creative, except for one to see who could make the most pretty one.
