Winner comes back in four

Su Jin Jang, Dec. 16, 2016, 9:37 a.m.

The now four-member group Winner broadcast via the V app Thursday, decorating a small Christmas tree together. Winner debuted in 2014 with five members, but Nam Tae-hyun quit in October, citing an aggravating mental condition.

The remaining four have since then largely concentrated on individual activities, but gathered in Christmas spirits for V on this day.

“We wanted to show the Inner Circle the four of us being together,” said Kang Seung-yoon, referring to the group’s fan club. 

“Take this as a signal that you’ll be seeing more of us,” said Kim Jin-woo.

“When this V-live ends, we’re going to go record for our next album,” said Lee Seung-hoon.

Song Min-ho sang Christmas carols for fans. 

The four discussed being secret Santas for each other and made Christmas plans. 

Winner may come back to V on Christmas day.

BTS’ Jin, Jimin and Jungkook aired a V show, Thursday, and raked in 17 million hearts. 

Jin and Jimin argued over the ownership of the eating show, titled “Eatjin.”

Jimin was the one who came up with the idea for the show, but because it had Jin’s name in it, Jin claimed the show should be his.

The two tried some Japanese candy and chewing gum. 

“Today was our last fan event in Osaka,” Jin said sitting next to Jimin on a sofa inside his hotel room. 

The two talked about the spontaneous surprises they threw during the final Osaka performance. 

Jungkook joined in the middle of the show. 

After wildly pressing the doorbell and succumbing to Jin and Jimin’s requests for dancing in the hallway and proclaiming love for his older bandmates, Jungkook was allowed into the room and back on the broadcast. 

The three then played a word chain game.

EXO’s trio unit CBX (Chen-Baekhyun-Xiumin) teased the fans about participating in YouTube’s “Amigo TV,” Thursday. 

A-mi-go is a Korean acronym for “aidolae michi go,” which translates to “crazy about idols.”

Chen, Baekhyun and Xiumin sat inside a nondescript van. 

“I can’t tell you where we are. But I can tell you what we will record today for Amigo TV has something to do with our newfound hobby,” Baekhyun said. 

Fans threw around guesses: computer gaming, soccer and cooking. 

“This is a sport that every man has at least once dreamed of learning in high school,” Chen hinted. 

“Later when men get married, they can play this sport with their father-in-laws.” 

To this, Xiumin said he personally wants to learn how to play tennis.

The episode of EXO-CBX is available to watch on YouTube.
