The bandmates of BTS were given a mission to take pictures that fit into the given narrative in the 118th episode of “Run BTS!”

They were to gather sticky notes with messages -- who, what, where and when -- and weave them into a sentence, putting out fitting photographs.

But before starting the mission, Jimin and Jungkook stood up to show off their special T-shirts: hot pink with silly images of themselves. The two had to wear them throughout the segment as a penalty from the last episode and the rest of the members voiced their envy, complimenting them on how good they looked.

The artists were given a chance to set a penalty for the mission themselves and after brief consideration, they decided to allow the winner to ask anything of the loser.

“If I win, someone get ready to go fishing with me,” said Jin, sending the rest into agony.

They were to fetch the notes in a given time but even before the timer went off, V snatched two as the others -? except Suga -- protested in unison, forcing him to give them up.

Stray Kids’ Lee Know catches up with fans

Lee Know of Stray Kids took to V Live to chat with fans.

He showed off the cat stickers on his phone and explained that he thought of customizing the case, but decided to go for the stickers so that he could enjoy more cute faces of his pet cats instead of settling for one picture. Some fans told him that they would print them out as well, and he jokingly teased and said he would use pictures that were not posted yet.

As for the poses he struck in the music video of “All In,” he admitted that he tried to visualize himself as a really cute person.

Meanwhile, a viewer asked if he was planning to dye his hair any time soon, to which the idol shook his head, saying he would not because it hurts. He had not done anything to style his currently brown hair that day, he added, replying to compliments on his hair.

“I just shampooed, dried it a little with a dryer and put on the headband,” he said.

Enhyphen unboxes debut album

The bandmates of Enhyphen discussed their first EP as they unboxed it on Naver’s V Live.

They split into two and went to stores in central Seoul and each purchased one -- a first for most of them, said Jungwon.

“It felt as if I’ve become our fan,” said Niki, taking selfies with those who went together. Jay told everyone that he had only bought a physical album once before -- BTS’s 2016 album “Wings” -- but it felt strange buying his own.

“I bought four and was surprised how heavy they were when I tried to carry all of them in one hand,” he added.

The bandmates were excited about how pretty the album was, as they undid the wrapping. They quickly skimmed through the booklet and some even sniffed the pages, relishing the smell fresh off the press.

There are instant photos -- limited to 300 in total -? hidden in the EPs, they reminded fans, as Niki opened his and pretended there was one.

Blackpink set their fandom community abuzz with a 20-second snippet titled “Blackpink - the Invitation.”

On Tuesday at noon, the band floated another encrypted trailer showing white gloved hands putting a mysterious object, in pink and black of course, into a black briefcase. A pink envelope with a thick black card with a message allowing only a peek at “Hi, Blackpink” is thrown on top of the luggage. The lock is set at 124, then comes a sticker showing that the parcel is addressed to Blackpink and is to be delivered by 11 a.m. on Dec. 3, 2020.

Although YG Entertainment has not released any specifics yet, the black YouTube play button hints that the project may involve the platform.

The band’s YouTube channel amassed over 50 million subscribers, a first for a K-pop act, and will receive a customized award created with the channel’s logo to mark the milestone.
