“Did you see us perform?” asked Yugyeom.

“It’s good to be back onstage. It’s been a while,” said Youngjae, sporting electric blue hair. “It feels as if tension among our fans is also hyper,” commented Mark and Jinyoung.

The seven-piece act thanked fans. “Sorry you have to go to work or school after cheering us on at such an early hour,” said Jackson before reminding fans about the group’s upcoming concerts.

“We have prepared a lot,” said Mark, though his bandmates stopped him from giving away any details.

“We are going to have a lot of fun with you and hope to meet you soon!” he said, followed by Jackson and Bambam’s versions in Chinese and Thai.

“We will be doing many V Live segments so let’s save the spoilers for later,” suggested Jinyoung, calming down the excited members.

“Look at the numbers going up. It must have been upgraded,” said the main dancer and rapper of the new features on the V Live app while grooving to Rihanna’s “Umbrella.”

“It has been quite a while and I wanted to talk to you while eating,” he said, showing viewers steak and bibimmyeon, instant spicy noodles, a combination recommended by Jin.

“Looks good, right?” J-Hope said happily, helping himself and saying that the band always brings along instant cold noodles.

“We are having a great time. We have wrapped up our tour in the US and will fly to Brazil the day after tomorrow,” reported the artist, adding that he had decided not to have any red wine because the septet had practice the next day.

“It must be hard on RM, especially here in the US, since he has to do all the talking in English,” he said after a fan’s comment. “I want to improve my English so that I can relieve him of the burden even a little. I asked him to teach me how to say what I want to say (in English) and also try using translation apps before interviews,” said the performer.

“Sometimes I also wonder if being better at English may allow me to enjoy life more -- meeting other artists for example. But then again, speaking the same language doesn’t mean that you can relate. Sincerity always works,” he said.

The members shouted, “We came back home! Finally in Seoul, Korea! We just finished practicing.” They began the segment jumping up and down, shaking the camera and belting out songs.

“Johnny, however, is sad,” said Taeyong, passing the selfie camera to a long-faced Johnny, who was happy to visit his hometown during the group’s US stint.

“Our music video will be released at midnight, and the song will come out tomorrow,” Doyoung reminded fans. “We haven’t seen the full video yet and are very curious. Please wait until midnight with us,” said Taeil.

The nine-piece subunit of NCT is coming out with “Superhuman,” the lead track from its fourth EP, “NCT #127 We Are Superhuman.”

“It’s been six months since the last time we went onstage for ‘Music Bank.’ We are nervous, and you fans must be nervous, too,” said Taeyong of the group’s appearance scheduled for the next day.

“We are quite free these days,” said Yanan, which Shinwon quickly corrected to, “We are recharging.”

The bandmates got fans up to speed: Shinwon has been practicing guitar every day, while Yuto spends most of his time listening to music. Wooseok stopped his bandmates from commenting on his game playing.

The four members had decided to enjoy the beautiful weather with fans by playing games, said Yanan.

Yanan was the first to put on a blindfold in the zombie game. He flailed his arms and bumped into benches while attempting to find the three, who were watching him and moving around without making any sounds.

Shinwon was the first victim and did his best not to scream but he failed when Yanan bit into his arm. When Shinwon showed the bite mark, Yanan guiltily asked, “Why did you not scream (before I bit)?” “I hate losing,” replied Shinwon.

After several rounds of the game, they finally sat down for dinner. Unwrapping the delivery food, they let out a sigh of joy. Wooseok had to do a series of dances requested by the rest as a penalty before joining them on the picnic mat.
