BTS jumped back to the late 20th century in the 120th episode of “Run BTS!” and tried to find the bad guy who broke a headstone.

The memorial stone, dedicated to their fandom Army, had been protecting the village since the Joseon era, and detective Jin brought forth six of the most likely suspects to figure out who the culprit was.

“Get into your characters!” Jimin urged, as everyone received files that told them about their characters. Tossing around silly lines they improvised on the spot and walked to the first scene: J-Hope’s barbershop.

They jumped at J-Hope when they saw a white towel with blood stains. He protested that he cut himself practicing for a contest and Jin pressed him to undo the bandage to see if he was telling the truth. After much hounding, RM wondered aloud how that could be a clue and Jin, a detective, explained that the offender could have hurt himself while breaking the stone.

Mark and Yugyeom of GOT7 went live together for the first time in a long while.

“This is the playlist I’ve been putting on at home these days,” Mark said, as Yugyeom took a glimpse at and chuckled at the carols.

“It just puts me in a good mood,” said Mark. They agreed the oldies especially are great.

Some fans asked them to recommend Christmas carols and Mark searched up “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” but somehow could not find the original tune. At Yugyeom’s suggestion, they listened to “Jingle Bell Rock” first, as Jiyoung walked into the room and joined in front of the camera.

Mark asked everyone if they believed in Santa and both Jinyoung and Yugyeom said yes.

“But I believe in aliens more than I do in Santa Claus,” confided Yugyeom, with Mark chiming in to repeat it in English. There must be alien life since the universe is so big and Earth is only so small, Yugyeom added.

Yeji and Ryujin of Itzy gave fans a sneak peek at the dolls from the band’s new line of merchandise developed with messenging app Line.

Yeji’s had a yellow catlike face with pointy ears, whiskers and a fuchsia body, while Ryujin’s had a round white face and big ears peeking out from a light purple hoodie.

“Although these are not available yet, we saw them yesterday and wanted to show you in advance,” they said, giving a close-up of two large plushies. Feigning innocence, Ryujin also raised her phone, claiming she needed to read comments, but actually showing off a phone grip with a smaller version of her doll.

“It was not our intention to design the characters to look like us. We wanted to make something that would remain a friend for life,” Yeji explained, “but when we completed the drawings and put them up, each resembled the owner.”

“Some part of me wanted it to be like me, to be honest,” confessed Ryujin.

(Naver's V Live)

Stray Kids uploaded snippets to give fans a glimpse at how they put on the online concert “Unlock: Go Live in Life.”

“We’ll be having a fan meeting session via video calls,” said Hyunjin, sitting at a table in the waiting room.

“I’ll be able to see Stay as well,” he said, referring to the band’s official fandom community, “it will be like watching Stay livestream on V Live.”

A total of 200 fans gathered thinking it would be a check-in for the online event, but Felix, I.N and Hyunjin surprised them by appearing on the screen.

Han followed to check the screen with them, and the four were happily taken aback when they saw more fans than they expected eagerly waiting.

“It’s been so long since I heard them shout!” Hyunjin said excitedly.

I.N was amazed by the technology that connected their fans from around the world, but admitted, “I want to see Stay at a concert hall.”
