During the four months since their last appearance, they were busy with concerts in the Australian cities of Sydney and Melbourne and also with promotional events in the US, said Hongjoong.

The bandmates came out with their first full-length album, “Treasure EP.FIN: All to Action,” the previous week, and it landed at the top of several album charts around the world.

The music video for title track “Wonderland” topped 10 million views within five days after it was uploaded, Chanmi pointed out, congratulating the band and asking whether there had been any difficulties during the filming.

“The dances are quite demanding and for every group choreography it was sweats everywhere,” said Seonghwa.

“We did the choreography over 200 times,” added Wooyoung.

As for Mingi, who could not join them due to a back injury, Hongjoong said: “He always puts so much into everything, never satisfied with his performance or singing. And he would be the most sorry for missing out and we hope he gets better as soon as possible and (we can all) be on the stage together.”

In the music video for title track “Good Bam,” the four bandmates get stood up by girls and spend the rest of the evening having a good time together, going to a singing room and a batting cage and taking silly pictures in a photo booth.

Band leader Lee Seunghyup participated in making all five songs, writing and composing four and co-writing the lyrics to “4242,” fully demonstrating his ever-widening range.

The band will resume its tour, called the “Fly High Project,” and travel to Busan next month for its first stand-alone shows in the port city. Since last year the four-piece act has drawn many new fans at concerts in five cities in Asia.

They will perform in “Spotify on Stage,” a live concert series hosted by the music streaming platform. This is the second run in Bangkok, and the band will join an international lineup that includes US rock band One Republic and Thai rapper F.Hero.

The nine-member band released digital single “Double Knot” last week and will hold its first stand-alone concert, titled “District 9: Unlock,” next month in Seoul.

The UK fashion house is hosting a series of public gigs around major cities, from London to Tokyo and Seoul, to “capture the sense of community, democracy and general joviality,” inviting music lovers to enjoy the events. It supplies the drinks and snacks and the gigs are free of charge.

Drummer Yungyeol was not present because he began his military duty last week. The four-piece band held its first stand-alone concert last month and met 6,000 fans over two days.
