He said he misses them because the band has been taking it slow recently, which means he has fewer opportunities to meet fans.

However, this also allows the band to spend more time talking to one another about topics ranging from travel plans to ideas for their career.

“Since I have more time on my hands, I am trying to devote myself to self-development, coming to the practice room every day,” the idol told fans.

“Super M is amazing and also motivated me to be better,” he added, referring to the K-pop project that includes his bandmate Taeyong and Mark.

Yuta asked fans to keep their expectations high for NCT 127’s upcoming tour in Japan, which will bring the nine-piece act to Osaka, Fukuoka, Niigata and Tokyo. He said he was happy himself to hear the announcement.

As for his birthday in about three weeks, he has no plans, but he may hold a party with his bandmates.

“What am I going to do? I am so nervous,” she said, beginning her first solo live show.

She spent the day visiting cafes dedicated to her, shopping for a pair of really cute glasses and eating marinated shrimps, a dish she has been wanting to eat for quite a while.

She was deeply moved to see how much her fans did to create such cafes and thanked them again.

The Japanese-born singer added that she had a lot to say to fans, but still needed to work on improving her Korean. Fans immediately sent her encouraging messages, telling her to take her time.

On their way home from the airport the day before, her bandmates had presented her with a birthday cake.

“I was asleep and didn’t know they had prepared it,” she said sheepishly.

Honda was then joined by her bandmates, who came in with another cake, clapping and singing happy birthday.

“Tsuyu is in a very good mood,” Momo told fans as Tsuyu let out a small scream when the livestream began.

“I have taken out my contact lenses out and cannot see very well,” said Dahyun. Tsuyu kindly offered to read the incoming comments to her.

“We have wrapped up our promotional activities for ‘Feel Special,’” said Dahyun.

Momo chimed in, telling viewers that this was her second V Live show that day. Maybe I should create an agency for V Live shows, joked Momo.

Dahyun happily reported that Twice has topped a music chart program with the song.

“It would have been even better if there were more Once” from the group’s official fan community, said Dahyun, acknowledging that there were less fans than expected.

But at the concert held later in Incheon the same day, there were so many of them, the three bandmates said.

“There were so many Once that I could hear them even with the in-ear (monitor) on,” said Momo.

“I am in a car alone but I am sitting in the infamous No. 9 seat since it is the most well-lit spot,” he told fans, showing the inside of the car that he shares with his bandmates.

He then talked about the band’s upcoming single, “Double Knot.” There was filming the previous day ahead of the release of the song on Wednesday.

“I am full of excitement, of course, but I have also been nervous. Toward the end of the filming, however, Stays even sang some parts along with us, though the song has not been unveiled,” said the singer, addressing the band’s official fan community and telling them how much strength he gained.

“I can’t give you any clues yet, I really can’t. But you can set your expectations high. You have heard the bits from the teaser, right? The energy really is so (high),” said Changbin who co-wrote the song with Bang Chan and Han.
