“Everyone! Our concert is only five days away!” said Haechan after saying hi to fans.

“Some fans are telling (us) that the chanting routine is too difficult,” said Jisung, going through the feed.

“You can do it! You should not be satisfied with what you have already done and always take a step forward,” encouraged Haechan.

“Seasonies can do it,” chimed in Chenle.

“I have tried it and it was not easy,” admitted Jisung.

Jeno confessed, chuckling, that they could not do it in unison.

The bandmates demonstrated how to wave support sticks from side to side, but after a while realized that the livestream was actually showing fans a mirror image and probably causing confusion.

They asked viewers to post their opinions so that they could make changes if possible.

“Some requested to drop ‘hahaha’ chants from the routine, saying that it is embarrassing, but that will be a no,” said Haechan. “This concert is for you to enjoy. Imagine yourself as being alone and let yourself go!”

“Our fans are known for their silly and funny comments and we have asked (them) to post some for our ‘SOSO’ performance video yesterday,” explained Seungyoon.

The bandmates went through several of the replies left by their fans that play with words before choosing the best of all those posted the previous day.

“We will take turns and read one of them but should not laugh or even smirk. If anyone does, he should eat a grape,” said Seungyoon.

Jinwoo was the first to try and Mino commented that some sounded like old jokes.

“But our fans have sent them for us,” said Seunghoon.

“There is a time we have to be merciless so that they can do better,” said Mino coolly.

Taeyeon begins LA trip with Zero the poodle

Taeyeon checked in on fans from a hotel room in Los Angeles where she is shooting a reality program with her pet poodle Zero.

“We have chosen to come here since the weather is nice and he can enjoy a much bigger space. This is the first time he has been on an airplane,” she told viewers.

He is small enough to fly in cabin with her. “I did not want to part with him,” she said.

But still, she was worried, admitted the singer. Fortunately, Zero managed to stay calm and quiet throughout the long flight.

This is her first trip with her silver poodle, who has been with her for two years. He likes going out for walks as well as runs, said the singer, holding her “best friend” close. And as soon as they unpacked, she took Zero out and realized what was at the top of her to-do list: giving him a walk and letting him spend time in a big park with other dogs.

“Under a bright sun, we had a picnic. And probably for the first time together, he ran freely without even the leash,” said Taeyeon.

Ong Seongwu chatted with fans after an autograph event in Bangkok.

“After signing, I wanted to spend more time with fans and suggested a Q&A session and learned that I have not gone live from here, so here I am,” said the singer-turned-actor.

He pretended to turn off the application when he checked the local time in South Korea, telling fans that it was late and time to go to sleep.

“I got you, right?” he said with a playful smile.

Ong then took out his phone, in a black Castify case covered with gold glitter. “At first you will not understand what this signifies,” he said. When he brushed his fingers against the gold, however, it changed to black and revealed the letters “WELOSW.”

“I first saw a staff’s case and said it was really cool and wanted one like it. And got this as a present with these initials,” he told fans.

“Welo” refers to his fandom community and OSW stands for his name.
