Kicking off this week’s Tuesday Naver V app line-up were the members of Big Bang in a near hourlong live broadcast to celebrate the group’s new album, “Made The Full Album.”

All five of the members gathered to discuss every aspect of their new album, which features the singles “Fxxx It” and “Last Dance.”

“Believe it or not it’s been about eight years since we have released a full album,” says Seungri at the start of the show. “It’s amazing to think that we have been working for 10 years and this is our first full album in eight years.”

“One of the artistic meanings behind our album is that it is a canvas,” Taeyang said.

“While the five of us make Big Bang, it’s also our fans who made us who we are,” he added, noting that this album release holds special meaning to the members.

Big Bang’s new album, which dropped on Tuesday, will also be their last release before the group goes on a temporary hiatus for each of the members to complete their mandatory military services.

Also V app Tuesday were the members of K-pop girl group EXID, who traded in their stage outfits for aprons.

In honor of member LE’s birthday last week, the ladies came together and formed teams to whip up a special meal for the birthday girl.

With both teams tackling chicken as their protein, one team of chefs prepared spicy curry chicken noodles, while the other team made stir-fry chicken. Both meals were later devoured by each one of the members, who called their culinary-themed broadcast, “perfection.”

Also tuning in on yesterday’s broadcast was APink’s Yoon Bo-mi, who held a live studio band practice session as she conversed with viewers.

With Christmas music playing in the background, BTS’ Tae-hyung (also known as V) posted a solo episode titled, “I’m Here Because I Miss You.” The in 25-minute video clip, the artist sang, ate and causally conversed with viewers about the upcoming holiday season.
