The artist seemed fully absorbed in bandmate Jin’s most recent solo single, “Tonight,” when the man himself appeared at the door.

“I was just about to call you!” said Jimin, telling Jin to wait outside.

Grumbling that Jin had just messed up his plans, Jimin called the older member and invited him to join the livestream. Jin played dumb and asked Jimin to play the song again, and then the two enjoyed the first song written by Jin.

Feigning innocence, Jimin said he really wanted to keep this song to himself, admitting that he is a possessive person.

“Such futile greed,” mocked Jin.

Jimin nudged Jin to share what he does when he has downtime, and Jin said he plays games, watches TV and just lies down. Jin told Jimin that he had heard Jimin was working on some songs.

Jimin denied it, but Jin suggested to Jimin that he should make something out of a tune he’d improvised before.

“The beats were so good that everyone danced to it, even Suga!” said Jin.

“It’s official. You probably must have seen the news and I am all better,” said the performer, who had dropped out of survival audition program “Produce X 101” for health reasons.

“I have gained so much strength from all the support shown by the fans. I was moved but at the same time was sorry,” he said, adding that he had not done anything for his fans for a while.

The best way to show his appreciation would be being as active as he can, said Byungchan, adding that he had asked to be able to take on more activities.

He has also been on a diet for about a month, he admitted, sharing some of his routines such as running along the Han River for three hours a day and jumping rope for 20 minutes.

“We came in first place again! And we are livestreaming to thank our fans who were there for us, and to boost the energy of those who couldn’t (be there),” said the girls.

“This place also is where I and Chaeryeong took to the stage for our first showcase as trainees,” recalled Ryujin, holding her bandmate’s hand.

“Coming back here for a fan-signing session brings back all the memories,” added Chaeryeong.

“That stage looked so huge at the time but today it seemed just right, maybe because Midzys filled it up,” said Ryujin, referring to members of the band’s fandom community.

“We will do even better so that we can do you proud,” promised Yuna.

The bandmates also expressed gratitude for the handwritten letters they’d received from fans, saying they were the most precious gift.

“Some even say it is the first time they have written one. How can we not read them all?” said Yeji.

“I was worried that the solo performance opening the concert would drag things down,” said JB.

He had kept the idea to himself, even from his bandmates, who admitted that they had been surprised and amazed at the same time.

“It was one of the ideas I had for a solo performance and I am still not fully satisfied,” said the leader.

“But it was so cool,” said Yugyeom.

When asked if he had also planned the part where he danced with his necklace in his mouth, JB said no. The necklace had bounced into his mouth and he couldn’t spit it out, he explained.

“He was trying to be sexy,” joked Yugyeom.

“By the way, why do you like biting so much?” Jinyoung chimed in before he and JB burst into laughter together.

The bandmates launched into an excited discussion, throwing out ideas for their upcoming fan event.

Jinyoung suggested that Mark deliver the final remarks, saying his tears were perfect for the end of a show. Everyone nodded in agreement, saying how soft-hearted Mark is.
