With self-proclaimed gourmet Jin acting as master of ceremonies, the remaining members of the septet were divided into two teams: RM, Jungkook and Suga versus J-Hope, Jimin and V.

First was a memory game: Each bandmate had to name a buffet item and remember all the previous items mentioned during the game, plus the gestures that went with the words. RM -- widely considered the player most likely to fail -- protested, saying the game was too hard. Jin coaxed the leader, saying if he was smart enough to deliver a speech at the UN, he shouldn’t have any problem with a memory game.

One by one, bandmates were eliminated and amid the chaos Jungkook was the last man standing. He earned two dishes for his team.

Next, the bandmates tried a version of Pictionary -- but instead of using their hands to draw pictures, they had to use a blow pen. RM’s team won again, mostly because Jimin had a hard time painting bossam, a pork dish served wrapped in lettuce. They also beat J-Hope’s team in the third round, correctly guessing the dish after hearing recorded recipes played at double speed three times in a row.

“Please let me touch you once,” pleaded Changbin, who was jolted by rabbits from the first try. “I was born in the Year of the Rabbit, but somehow I am scared of them,” he said as he cautiously reached out to pet one of the furry animals.

“It is quite still, just like you,” said I.N with a smile.

“They don’t like foxes, although the two got along so well in the movie ‘Zootopia,’” said the youngest member, whose nickname is Fennec Fox, ruefully.

Others petted the fluffy animals as they hopped around the room, giving them snacks and taking pictures. Han tried to shoo one away from an electrical wire.

“They don’t seem to like to be cuddled. Unlike Ggami,” said Hyunjin, referring to his dog.

“They tend to mark their territory when they feel comfortable and now, bunnies are my masters,” said Bang Chan, walking carefully to get changed and showing everyone the stains on his T-shirt.

“It comes with six tracks and the lead single is titled ‘Zimzalabim,’” said Yim Hyun-su, showing off a signed CD.

“It’s quite quirky and magical,” said Hong Dam-young of the title track.

The song title is a European magic word, used to cast a spell, explained Yim, who attended the showcase event. “It is about having a wish granted and thus has a positive message, but soundwise it’s quite interesting,” he said.

“It is experimental even for them,” said Yim, adding that the band is known to push the envelope and there is great anticipation as listeners try hard to figure out the hints in their teasers.

“It combines electropop with a funky, percussive medley with a little bit of hip-hop and EDM as well. They switch between genres and moods and that’s what makes it so interesting to listen,” said Hong.

“It must be hard for those of you who are in the middle of tests. Are you watching this despite having to prepare? Well, you need some time off,” he said, cheering for the young fans.

“I have heard quite a lot today that I must have lost weight but I don’t know. I have never been on a diet,” said the idol, turning his face every which way.

He also told fans which legs belonged to which members of NCT Dream in the picture uploaded the previous day on Twitter. “The one in jeans is Jisung and Jaemin is wearing white shoes. Chenle has rolled up his pants a little. I am wearing black shoes with gray shoelaces and the Nikes belong to Renjun,” said Xeno. “We just took the picture for fun and since it didn’t show our faces, we wondered if it would be any good. But we decided to put it up anyways,” he said.
