They gathered evidence, moving from the small theater where RM, an aspiring actor, worked part time selling tickets to the “posh” residence of V, the man who owns almost the whole town. Jin, the detective, found the most damning evidence against the rich man.

The piece of paper, along with a note that said the stone could be lifted by two men, had a colored drawing.

“This must be a map of the headstone. Or treasure?” said Jimin as the members milled around and muttered suspicions.

Then it was time for the “characters” to sit down and name the most suspicious. Jin picked Jungkook’s hustler; J-Hope and RM chose photographer Suga; and the rest, including V himself to the surprise of everyone except Jin, pointed their fingers at V’s wealthy character.

The bandmates of Tomorrow X Together went live together to enjoy an early Christmas party.

Yeonjun was satisfied with their cute look, wearing matching red berets, and Beomgyu jumped at the food that filled up the table murmuring that he was famished.

Soobin recommended the melon, having tasted it first. The fruit reminded Yeonjun of their recent appearance at an award ceremony hosted by a Korean music streaming company named Melon.

“We had so much fun during the dance break,” said Huening Kai. “But the performance with hats, wow.”

They practiced the moves as many as 13 times shooting with the camera before the show alone and succeeded four out of five times for the dry run, recalled Taehyun sighing.

“We were better than best practice,” said Soobin.

“And we’ve been practicing so hard,” chimed in Beomgyu.

After chatting over the food, the quintet stood up and added a final touch to the already-decorated tree, putting on a pair of sunglasses and a red nose.

“Stay away from the tree if you are not artistically inclined,” said Beomgyu shooing away the leader.

Taeil, Xiaojun and Renjun of NCT briefly talked to their fans between practices.

They are in the middle of final rehearsals for the band’s online concert on Sunday. The “My Everything” trio wanted to see their fans together, explained Renjun putting his arms around the shoulders of the other two.

“We practiced but it didn’t go that well. I wonder if it will be better at the actual performance,” Taeil said with a chuckle.

The three decided that they would look each other in the eyes and maintain the emotional mood during the quiet part in the song.

“But the second we did, we started cackling,” said Renjun. So they changed their minds and will not look at each other, Taeil added.

Taeil expressed hopes that they sing songs other than “My Everything” as well. The rest agreed that they are great together and Renjun declared that “this unit will not be done with just this song.”
