Cha Eun-woo of boy band Astro tuned into V Live to connect with fans.

Turning on the app around 1 a.m. after SBS’ Entertainment Awards, where he’d just won the rookie award, Cha said, “I was still nervous when the rookie award winner was announced as the first winner of the night and was still kind of confused as I made my receiving speech.”

“Thank you for all our fans, Arohas, who always support and root for me. I’m also grateful to the members, my family, agency staffs and my manager. I rushed here and tuned in to V Live to say this one more time,” Cha said, referring to the band’s fandom, knows as the Arohas.

Cha said he had a sore throat due to his busy schedule. He’d emceed for two award shows recently, and tvN’s drama series “True Beauty” kicks off this month with him as the main character.

“I feel very relieved now. I’ve been taking up a lot of schedules and I’ve had the pressure since I really wanted to do well. I’m happy to have completed everything without any trouble, and this rookie award has doubled the joy,” he said.

Since making his debut as a member of Astro in 2016, the 23-year-old has grown his career in the South Korean entertainment scene both as a musician and an actor.

Tomorrow X Together Yeonjun’s meokbang with fans

Yeonjun of boy band Tomorrow X Together turned on V Live on Saturday night to connect with fans.

“The other members are out for dinner,” Yeonjun said, sitting in what seemed like a small studio.

“I’ve done several live sessions with the whole group or in units but not alone. I really wanted to livestream alone and communicate with you guys more personally,” he said.

Yeonjun had spicy chicken feet for dinner as he spoke with his fans.

About the group’s recent cover of TVXQ’s “Hug,” Yeonjun said, “TVXQ debuted when I was in elementary school or kindergarten, so it was my honor to cover their song on the stage. And I was happy to hear that our fans, Moas, really liked the stage.” The Moas are members of the band’s official fandom.

“Also, I’ve been a fan of TVXQ since I was young and I know most of their songs very well. I especially revered Yunho seonbae since he’s such a great dancer. I heard that he even reacted to our cover stage and I’m just so grateful,” he added.

To a fan who asked what he’s watching these days, Yeonjun said he’s watching the “Harry Potter” series again.

“For those people who haven’t watched ‘Harry Potter,’ I recommend you should watch it,” he said. “I think it’s worth the watch -- at least once.”

Yeonjun casually chatted with the fans for some 50 minutes, talking about his food and drink preferences, his childhood memories and more.

Twice reveals “Cry for Me” choreography video

Girl group Twice revealed the choreography video for its recent single “Cry for Me.”

The nine-piece act dropped the single Friday, following a recent surprise debut performance of the song during the 2020 Mnet Asian Music Awards on Dec. 6.

Clad in striking white outfits, the members danced to the song about a confused heart riddled with both love and hatred. Jungyeon, who has been away from the band’s activities due to health issues since October, was absent from the video.

“Cry for Me” is the group’s first song, and its first Korean digital single, since its second full-length album, “I Can’t Stop Me,” came out in October.

Behind the scenes with Kai

Kai of boy band Exo unveiled some behind-the-scenes moments from the production of his solo album, “Kai.”

“It’s Oct. 24 today, and we’re shooting for the ‘Ride or Die’ right now,” Kai said at the start of the 13-minute video about the making of his preview music video “Film: Kai” and the music video for “Mmmh.”

With his hair dyed grayish purple and sparkling makeup shimmering on his face, Kai said, “I’m monitoring the clips right now and I feel like I’m dancing surrounded by mirrors. I like the part where I’m dancing with the hat.”

The video shows Kai dressed in a suit, dancing alone or with other dancers in front of the camera.

“We’re shooting the scene where I’m thinking at home. And in the next scene I’ll be sitting in the bathtub, thinking, yet again,” Kai says, laughing.

In the next scene, Kai is seen standing outdoors.

“This place is quite special for me. This is also where I shot the Gucci photo shoot,” Kai says.

Holding his hands, covered in gold, he says, “I’ve painted my hands gold.” “I have dirt on my clothes right now because the concept for this shooting is to show that I’m getting dirty as I fight against myself. This shooting requires for all three elements to be in line -- the sun, this mirror behind me and the performance -- so it won’t be an easy one.”

The video goes on to show Kai during the making of the “Mmmh” video, and his comments about the production.
