The bandmates of Stray Kids did a one-hour live broadcast after their promotion for “Back Door” came to an end.

They took turns saying hello to their fans, but it soon turned into a playful game of introducing themselves at an audition. The members teased Bang Chan to show off his abs, but he said no after taking a peek down his shirt. Feigning disappointment, they jumped on I.N, pleading with the youngest band member to at least undo a button, making him blush.

The octet then played a series of games where each performer had to complete a mission in 100 seconds. Missions ranged from a bottle flip for Bang Chan to taking a group selfie without a selfie stick for I.N and guessing Stray Kids songs after hearing them play for only three seconds for Changbin.

As a finale, the musicians sang and danced along with “Haven,” thanking fans and expressing their hopes of seeing them in person soon.

Jungwoo of NCT chatted with fans while keeping the camera off after a slow day.

He made sure that everyone had listened to all the tracks from the band’s second full-length album, “NCT ? The 2nd Album Resonance Pt. 1,” and shared his amazement at NCT U’s performance of “Make a Wish” on a television music show.

“I personally love that song, especially the whistling part,” he gushed, then whistled too. He also loved the subunit’s “Dancing in the Rain” because it was the only upbeat number in the album, he said. Although he liked all the songs from the album, if he had to pick a favorite, it would be that one, he added.

As for the second installment of the album, the idol hinted that there would be attempts at new genres. The overall atmosphere would be more uplifting and cheerful, and the songs would be cool.

“At least one song will make you want to dance and jump up and down,” he said, stopping himself from saying any more.

NCT subunit NCT U released a teaser trailer for “From Home,” an R&B ballad from “NCT ? The 2nd Album Resonance Pt. 1.”

Taeil, Doyoung, Kun, Haechan, Yuta, Renjun and Chenle participated in the slow-tempo song about how the members of NCT had gathered with a shared dream of becoming singers and were taking steps to realize that dream together as friends and family. The lyrics are in Korean, Chinese and Japanese.

In the 23-second video, they take a trip to a beach, where they take pictures of each other as they smile and stroll down the shore, striking poses along the way.

The full video will be unveiled later on Monday after a livestream on the band’s V Live channel.

The album has topped iTunes’ top album charts in 35 regions around the world in addition to landing at No. 1 on a number of charts in South Korea, China and Japan.

The Boyz wraps up promotion for "The Stealer"

(Naver's V Live)

The bandmates of The Boyz took to V Live after coming down from the stage for a television music show, promoting “The Stealer” for the last time. Many of them were trying to cool down with handheld fans.

“There’s sweat on everyone’s face, like dewdrops,” said Sunwoo.

Partly because of the holidays, it felt as if the promotion period had flown by, they said. All the more so since there was so much surprising news: The band had topped four music charts and stayed at the top for two consecutive weeks.

The only downside was not getting to see their fans in person.

“It ain’t over till it’s over,” though, said the 11-piece act, expressing the fervent hope that things would get better soon. The idols had received so much love and support from their fans, who might get to see them sing and dance on television sometime soon, volunteered Sangyeon.
