“I am starving, maybe because I only had one meal today,” said Minhyuk. Wonho quickly suggested having a protein shake. Minhyuk made a face and turned down the chicken breast smoothie, but Wonho offered one made of sweet potatoes instead.

While the bandmate went to fetch the drink, Minhyuk explained that he was sitting on a couch in front of their room.

When Wonho returned, the pair went on to talk about a recent achievement: earning their scuba diving licenses.

“We had a three-day break, our first (chance to take some time off), and we wanted to do something meaningful. I have been wanting to add another license, while Minhyuk wanted to overcome his fear of water,” said Wonho.

In spite of his fear of water and the fact that he could not even swim, Minhyuk managed to earn a license, a 50-meter Advanced level license at that.

“We had such a hard time, to be honest. I wouldn’t be able to go through it again,” confided Wonho.

“Sana is livestreaming in the back,” said Momo, admitting that her reason for taking to V Live was to compete with her bandmate. When asked why they were doing it separately, Momo simply answered with a chuckle that Sana was using her phone in vertical mode and she was in horizontal mode.

“Why aren’t you saying anything?” asked Nayeon, munching on sweets.

Momo joked, “This is on mute.”

Nayeon nudged her.

“Talk about the dramas I recommended. They are all good, right?”

Momo has been watching “Hotel Del Luna” and “Melo Is My Nature,” both recommended by her bandmate, as well as “Stranger Things.”

“Is there any TV drama you would recommend to us?” the two asked their fans.

Chaeyoung came by to say hi and sat on Momo’s lap. When she looked at the screen, she was surprised to see the number of hearts sent by their fans. The trio asked each other if the application was working properly and Momo said she thought Once, the group’s fandom community, might be clicking like crazy. She mimed the action as she said it.

“Did you know that it is sort of a pun?” he asked as he began the livestream. His name is Bang Chan, and in Korean “bang” means a room, so he came up with “Chan’s Room” as the name of his solo show, said the idol.

Reporting to fans that he’d had dinner with the band -- all nine bandmates together -- Bang Chan thanked them for their compliments on his black T-shirt.

”It’s our merchandise, from Miroh. I love it too,” he said, confiding that he really wanted every single item of band merchandise.

Before starting off with his list of songs, Bang Chan let his fans take their turns first, playing “When I Was Your Man” by Bruno Mars by request.

Then he went through Stray Kids’ songs with fans, explaining that he wanted to look at each song together with them, although there would not be enough time to listen to them all. He began with “Hellevator.”

“It took us (a) long time to get here and we’re finally in Macao. I’m very happy to see so many of you,” said Jennie to a screaming audience.

“I will definitely treasure this moment for a very, very long time since this is really special for us,” Rose told fans.

Lisa said: “I hope that we can see each other soon. Very soon.”

Then the girls hopped on a plane to Australia, where Rose touched down a day earlier.

“I am back in my hometown!” said Rose in Melbourne, full of excitement.

“I used to come here every day for juices when I was in middle school. It’s my favorite street,” said the idol, walking along Degrave Street. She also paid a visit to her school -- “It’s been eight years! I’m so nervous!” -- where she jumped up and down relishing the memories. At the concert, she was greeted by her fans holding signs that said “Welcome Home, Rose.”
