Baekhyun of EXO livestreamed while strolling along the Han River for 1 1/2 hours.

Assuring fans that he is being cautious and walking along the trails, he admitted he is pretending to look at videos on the phone as he feels self-conscious broadcasting live in public.

Some viewers told him to slow down and catch his breath, but the idol insisted he should at least walk fast since he is outside for exercise. He would walk for an hour at the least, he added.

“Why am I walking alone? I’m walking with you,” he said, flipping the camera from time to time to show the path he was taking and asking viewers how they liked it.

Baekhyun chose a passage that was unpopulated but realized that he had taken a wrong turn and acknowledged that he did not know how to get back. He seemed carefree, though, singing the band‘s “The Eve” aloud.

SF9 celebrates 4th anniversary

The bandmates of SF9 gathered to mark the fourth anniversary of the group’s debut and the release of a special album to celebrate the occasion.

“I‘ve been looking forward to this day,” said Jaeyoon, as they helped themselves to a table of pizza and chicken, as well as cake.

Taeyang asked the bandmates for their favorites from the three new tracks. Many picked the lead single, “Shine Together,” which is dedicated to their fans. Taeyang liked it of course, but after the EP came out he was touched anew by the lyrics of “Forever.”

Youngbin said he was happy that many of their fans seemed to like “Love No.5” as well.

“I personally liked Chanhee’s part” in the second verse, Jaeyoon said, and Chanhee instantly asked him to sing it. Dawon, on the other hand, confided that he seriously wanted -- for the first time in his four-year career -- Rowoon’s part in the bridge.

The Boyz's Eric shares enthusiasm for ramen

(Naver's V Live)

Eric of the Boyz had a long chat with fans on Naver’s V Live, listening to his recent favorite playlist of rhythm and blues.

Looking at himself on the small screen of his phone, he announced that he would cut down on instant noodles. He has been eating ramen as often as nine times a week, but will cut down to six to seven, he said. Everyone around him, his mother in particular, is worried. He now is old enough to take more responsibility for his own health as well, said the performer.

However, he plans to open a diner devoted to ramen. He already has picked a name, “naega neo ramyeon,” which translates to “as if I were you.” He will offer 50 percent discounts to the band‘s fans on the full menu, which will include basic varieties. The highlight of the menu will be a combination of ramen and sujebi, Korean hand-pulled dough soup. And he will come up with his own creations as well, Eric fantasized.

Ateez's Hongjoong drops in from studio

Hongjoong of Ateez kept fans up to speed with a 30-minute live broadcast from his company studio.

“I turned on the V Live as soon as I got here,” he said.

He admitted with a bashful smile that he himself still needs to get used to the new hair. He just could not do any more root touch-ups, though, and dyed it a dark color, he explained.

During the Chuseok holidays, or Korean Thanksgiving, he did a lot of things with his family. They love sports so they kicked some balls at a nearby futsal field and he tried golf at an indoor facility -- “it was so hard and I was bad at it”. He was granted a long break, ate a lot and rested a lot, ready to get back to work.

“After a few days, I wanted to come back to the studio (to work and practice) and go back on stage as well,” confided the idol.
