The audience went wild as the boy band appeared and began performing “Time of Sorrow.”

The group also presented songs from the new EP “Nostalgia,” including lead track “Nostalgic Night,” “Farewell” and “New World.”

Returning after 1 1/2 years, the bandmates were emotional, especially since the venue was where they debuted three years ago.

“We have been through a lot but hung in there thinking of you, Alice. Please keep an eye on us, as we will do our best,” they said addressing their official fandom.

All six tracks of the new EP have landed on local music charts, setting a new record for the band.

“I finally found time to eat lunch and wanted to chat with you while eating, like we’re eating together,” she told fans, opening a box of sushi.

She was in the middle of the shoot and had tried on a series of outfits. The photos will be worth waiting for, she said.

In light of the chilly morning, she had bundled up in a white padded coat.

“But now, it has warmed up a bit, and I would like to take it off but I am wearing a dress (from the photo shoot) underneath. I am not going to show it now,” Tzuyu said with a coy smile.

Shooing away bugs that came close to her and her lunch, the performer talked about how she wants to get a driver’s license.

When she was younger, she actually wanted to ride a motorbike, a popular mode of transport in her home country, Taiwan. However, riding a motorcycle seems more dangerous in Seoul, as more people drive cars. Some fans agreed and told her not to ride one. The singer gave them her word.

“I used to do arts and crafts with Hueningkai, but Yeonjun did this with Beomgyu the last time and found his talent. Since Yeonjun is not good at many things, we have decided to let him join me as a guest for this session,” joked Soobin.

They would be doing glass deco art. As it takes at least an hour for the background drawing, done with black ink, to dry, they had done that part in advance, explained the two.

Yeonjun has chosen a fox and Soobin a rabbit as main characters. Beginning to add colors to the outlined drawing, the pair confided that they woke up late and came straight to do the livestreaming.

“I have worn this aviator jacket I told you about at our fan meeting event. I wasn’t actually planning to, but I was in a hurry and just threw it over this T-shirt I wear as sleepwear,” said Soobin.

“We have come out with what we can do best,” said the seven-piece act at a showcase in Incheon on Monday, kicking off the event with title track.

The EP has landed at the top of iTunes album charts in 28 regions, including Australia, Brazil, Russia and Thailand, upon its release. It is dominating music charts at home as well.

The title track centers on how much fans’ support means to the group and completes it, like the last piece of a puzzle.

“We can continue to fly only when you keep calling our names,” the bandmates told fans.

The lyrics were co-written by the head of their management agency, Park Jinyoung, and leader JB. The song was composed by international big names David Brook, Marco Borrero, Benjamin Ingrosso and Louis Schoorl. Award-winning mixing engineer Manny Marroquin added the finishing touch to the catchy number.
