Monsta X unveiled its video for “Love Killa” from the band’s third full-length album, “Fatal Love.”

Looking dandy in gray suits, the six bandmates sing about fatal attraction, with darker sounds reinforcing the disturbing sentiments. They may have turned their signature powerful choreography down a notch, but they nonetheless exude strong energy and fill up the stage with no help from props.

Jooheon and I.M came up with the rap lyrics for the focus track, illustrating how the 5-year-old band is maturing in terms of its music. Jooheon wrote “Beastmode” and “Stand Together” and I.M wrote “Night View,” while Hyeongwon showcased his production skills for the first time, participating in the making of “Nobody Else.”

The new album, consisting of 10 tracks, was released Monday along with the video.

ITZY's Yeji encourages fans to have faith

Yeji of ITZY struggled with technical glitches while talking to her fans from her company headquarters.

“I think (the application) has been updated and am afraid mine is not working well,” she said after two failed attempts.

“This can’t be happening,” she lamented, trying to figure out what was wrong. She wanted to communicate with her fans since she felt she’d talked too much the previous day.

“I’m learning how precious it is to be able to communicate smoothly,” said the idol, going through the comments viewers had sent in, which were coming in very slowly.

Some fans talked about their dreams and asked her for advice on facing new challenges. Yeji encouraged them to push themselves and told them that she never thought she would fail when she was a trainee.

“I don’t know what gave me such confidence, but my belief that I’d become a singer never wavered,” she said.

Youngbin of SF9 took a firm stand as the leader of the band, albeit briefly, in his weekly solo livestream.

Before replying to the questions fans had posted, he turned serious for a moment and said in a firm voice that he wasn’t going to read any comments based on yet-to-be-confirmed information.

“Please give us some time and we will try and show our better selves,” he pleaded.

He’d had a very busy day, said the idol, but he could not give out details. He broke into a smile, though, when viewers asked about the bracelet Jaeyoon made for him during a livestream on Halloween.

“It doesn’t go well with today’s outfit, but it may be my daily (accessory),” he said, lifting his arm to show off the beaded bracelet. The beads were arranged in gradations, from white to light green and darker green, because he’d asked his bandmate to use his favorite color, he added.

Twice members offer behind-the-scenes comments about music video

The bandmates of Twice shared some tidbits about the shooting of the video for “I Can’t Stop Me,” the lead track from the band’s second studio album, “Eyes Wide Open.”

With Chaeyoung’s brief explanation, they started the video right away, clapping at the first scene where they all come out of a huge red flower that opens its petals to reveal them. The petals actually had to be opened manually, Jihyo told the fans. They were all barefoot when the scene was shot, but the lighting had kept them really warm, they recalled, smiling.

Nayeon shrieked at a close-up of herself, and Jihyo teased that Nayeon was in love with herself. Nayeon was unmoved and said she looked pretty in the video.

They all complimented Mina on her solo shot, where she gazes leisurely into the camera while wrapped up in sheer white fabric. While Mina appreciated the praise, Chaeyoung joked that it reminded her of an infamous video of their producer Park Jinyoung in his bed.
