K-pop boy band EXO celebrated their fifth anniversary on a Naver V app live broadcast Saturday, showing gratitude to fans.
“It has been a long time since we came on Naver’s V app broadcast,” Sehun said. The 12 bandmates gathered and sang a celebratory tune.
Suho explained they were in Macau to attend an awards ceremony Sunday.
The excited members talked about their recent statuses.
Sehun revealed he has been playing a computer game and said he would share the name of the game via social media.
Speaking next was Baekhyun, who said he had a paralyzing nightmare.
“We will have a big concert in May and we thank you for your support,” he said. “My new song is to be released Friday, so I hope you guys have a chance to listen to my song.”
Xiumin expressed awe as he threw the first ball in a professional Korea baseball game a day prior. Chanyeol said he had put in more than 70 hours of bowling.
EXO debuted in 2012 with the EP “MAMA.”
Idol Kim So-hye opened up her first Naver V app live broadcast Saturday, greeting fans from her room.
Before the show, she had prepared eight topics to talk about with viewers. The first was sports.
“I was very good at volleyball. I was in a volleyball club during the three years of middle school,” the 18-year-old said. As a defender, Kim also participated in Seoul and nationwide tournaments.
“I have not practiced for some time now, so I cannot play so well anymore. I am also very good at Badminton,” she said, adding she has recently gotten into bowling.
Moving onto the next topic, she showed her room to fans.
She then moved on to talk about gaming. She said she is very good at computer games and has played role-playing shooting games.
For the nest topic, “password,” Kim and the viewers decided on a signal that only they could understand.
“If you guys wink, I will know you have watched today’s show,” Kim said.
Kim debuted last year as a member of project girl group I.O.I through Mnet’s competition show “Produce 101.”
Girl group EXID popped up on a V app live broadcast in Vietnam, greeting fans two days before they hit the stage Monday.
Jeonghwa first appeared to explain that the five-member group was in Vietnam to perform for the 25th anniversary of relations between South Korea and Vietnam.
“We are in a restaurant in the hotel, waiting for food. We are very hungry,” Jeonghwa said. “The weather here is a little hot and humid and it is 7:03 p.m.”
She passed the camera to Hani, who changed the camera filter affect to that if a scary cat human. The two shared laughs changing filters.
Solgi left the group tentatively due to health reasons.
