Haechan, Jungwoo and Taeil of NCT decided to go for a drive after being stuck at home and feeling bored.

Haechan sported a black bucket hat during the broadcast, prompting viewers to talk about his fashion.

The stream that aired in two parts racked up nearly 1 million views after the group made a surprise announcement that they’d go live, just minutes before the show.

The bandmates touched upon a wide range of topics, from late-night snacks to the upcoming repackaged album.

According to S.M. Entertainment, NCT 127 will release a repackage for second studio album “Neo Zone.”

Having come back from ending the stream by accident, the group had fun together singing and chatting with each other.

In the clip he played on his phone, the bandmates were standing surrounded by spectacular lighting effects as thumping beats played in the background.

“It’s very short right? The rest you can watch live tomorrow,” Mark said as he gave a thumbs-up.

SuperM’s Sunday show is the first to air on Naver and S.M. Entertainment’s joint streaming service Beyond Live, a new concert streaming service that launched this month.

Following SuperM, other acts such as WayV, NCT Dream and NCT 127 will also air shows in the following weeks.

The singer sang along as the music played before expressing his love for the band.

“I will try to fix you,” the singer sang, before adding: “The song is called ‘Fix You.’”

He explained it was the first song from the band he had encountered.

“I used to love and still like Imagine Dragons. And as a trainee I went to see Coldplay live in Korea.”

He didn’t know who they were at first, but he later became a fan after listening to their music, which got him emotional and helped find his identity and purpose.

“I was able to grow like a tree thanks to them.”

Miyeon of (G)I-dle shows off new hair style

Miyeon from the girl group (G)I-dle showed off her new hairstyle during a recent stream on V Live.

Speaking to fans up and close to the camera, the singer showed off her silky cascade of dark, greenish hair.

“I feel like it’s been a while,” she said as she sipped her iced coffee.

“There were many good things during this promo, but we didn’t get to meet (with fans),” she regretted as she lamented the novel coronavirus pandemic that has hit the K-pop industry.

She also added that she had recently dyed her hair, with a color she worried could fade soon.

The group recently released third EP “I Trust” with lead single “Oh My God,” which has become their bestselling album to date.

During the stream, she also talked about drinking coffee before she sleeps as well as her hobbies.

On having hobbies while working, she said, “To be honest, I don’t get to watching dramas or films or even listening to music when I’m busy. When I have spare time, I just sleep.”

As for coffee, she said she’s become used to drinking caffeine and being able to sleep.
