During fan signings, sometimes things happen that no one saw coming. That’s what happened at one of WayV‘s for their debut mini-album Take Off.

While the rest of the members reacted how you’d expect after hearing about the theft, Lucas‘s unbothered reaction has resurfaced for being forever iconic.

To be able to attend a fan signing, fans typically purchase a massive amount of albums to increase their chances of snagging an opportunity to participate. Knowing that, it made the new even more startling. Someone hadn’t stolen only one or two albums. They’d supposedly taken at least forty of them.

wayv lucas 1

While a staff member told Kun what happened, Winwin scooted closer to listen in. Both of them couldn’t believe it. Kun’s eyes widened as he looked up at the staff member. Winwin looked out into the audience, confused.

After hearing all the details, Kun jumped backward in shock, followed by Winwin who did the same. On the flip side, Lucas hadn’t yet found out the news, happily continuing his interactions with fans.

When Lucas was finished, he wanted to find out what they’d been making a commotion about. Winwin was quick to lean in and inform him about the situation. At first, Lucas seemed just as surprised by the news. That ended quickly.

After verifying that it was true, Lucas gave the funniest look to the audience of fans. It was like a parent who wanted to scold their child but couldn’t because they were too amused. That wasn’t even the most interesting part of his reaction.

Like nothing had happened, and they weren’t dealing with such a serious situation, Lucas shared his happy energy with everyone. He stood up and did the body waves from “Take Off”. Winwin and Kun burst into laughter after seeing it.

Lucas may put his playful personality to the side for a moment when a situation is serious, but it’ll always find a way to come back.

On July 17 (KST), BTS will appear on Nippon Television‘s music program Buzz Rhythm 02 to perform “Stay Gold”. They will also participate in a fun Q&A, as revealed in recently released teaser for the episode.

Although all seven members love each other dearly, there’s one member who receives the most pampering.

During the show’s Q&A, BTS were asked to point out the child-like member who is the most babied. Some people might expect it to be Jungkook, the group’s youngest member…

…but Jimin won the vote by a landslide!

Everyone except Suga chose him, and when Jimin tried to deny it, RM and J-Hope mimicked his aegyo

…and he cracked up. This imitation gets an “A” for accuracy!

While filming episodes of Going SEVENTEEN, SEVENTEEN can be seen having a drink with each other from time to time. Because of that, fans have a glimpse of how the members act when they have a little too much alcohol.

Thanks to DK, fans now know two of Hoshi‘s drinking habits that’ll make you think he’s even more adorable.

seventeen dk hoshi

For a solo interview, DK answered some questions about his fellow members. When the host asked if there was one who had any drinking habits, he thought of the one and only “Hoshi hyung.” Fortunately, he didn’t leave everyone clueless and revealed just how different Hoshi becomes.

Since Hoshi is energetic on stage and calm off stage, he’s somewhere in between when he’s having a drink. DK pointed out that Hoshi becomes affectionate by hugging them and saying, “He’ll tell people, ‘I love you. Thank you.’”

Next, Hoshi finished it off with what DK thought was the cutest part. A hug wasn’t enough for Hoshi to show his affection; he needed to take it up a notch. DK mentioned, “And, even kiss them. Cute.”

If you think Hoshi is adorable in his usual form, he’s even more so when he’s drinking. Just imagining him warmly hugging and kissing his members, with appreciative words, is enough to make anyone become his fan.

MAMAMOO’s Solar revealed a stretching routine she does to help her achieve a slim, toned look for her body and improve physical health.

11d338a17f1f49cf3b4d1c5e36765149

Solar starts with neck stretching. Relaxing your back and shoulders, gently press your head down horizontally, then at a 45-degree angle, and finally straight down. Remember to keep some distance between your shoulder and ears.

After rotating your neck slowly to loosen up, she progresses to waist stretching. Alternate stretching each side, doing up to 10.

It can also strengthen your abs and reduce fat around your waist.

— Solar

Next, you’re going to grab an edge of something above you as Solar does. Lifting your head, slowly lean forward to stretch your underarms.

Solar also suggests massaging your underarm and hitting it with a light fist for better circulation.

We say the underarm is like our body’s trashcan because toxins collect here, so massaging our underarm is very beneficial.

— Solar

Next, you can use a massage ball (any small ball like a tennis ball or baseball will do) to relieve foot fatigue. Since the feet are often fatigued and have acupuncture points for the organs, it’s important to not neglect them.

Additionally, you can use the massage ball to relax your glute muscle by placing it under your glute and rocking side to side as shown. Solar says it should be a little painful at first.

Next, cross your legs like Solar and breathe deep as you pull your leg towards you to stretch your hip joint.

If you tend to have a slight incorrect walking posture, this exercise is good for you.

— Solar

Lastly, stretch your calves like so and breathe deeply for 30 seconds on each side. Optionally, you can place your leg on a foam roller for a greater stretch like Solar.

You can follow along with her entire routine below!

Shortly after TXT debuted, Taehyun would never pass up the opportunity to show off his magic tricks. Whether they were to amaze fans or his fellow members, he delivered a cool trick every time.

He even dedicated a live broadcast to teaching everyone and Hueningkai how to do card tricks effortlessly.

With his magic tricks being so well-known among MOAs, they wanted to see what a professional magician had to say about his skills.

txt taehyun 1

Magician Choi Hyun Woo, who appeared on Radio Star to display his skills, heard their calls and decided to give his professional opinion. “Lots of fans asked me to pick this person. TXT’s Taehyun.”

choi hyun woo 1

As soon as Choi Hyun Woo dived into talking about Taehyun, he didn’t hesitate to mention how impressed he was with his skills. He had to post about it through his social media, “I posted on my Instagram story about him too, because I was so surprised!”

It was Taehyun’s technique that really caught his attention. It wasn’t that of a beginner, “His techniques. I think he did magic as a hobby for a long time. He performs lots of techniques that require lots of practice and time.”

Choi Hyun Woo even expressed that he was a bit jealous of Taehyun’s natural ability, “I’m also jealous! He sort of already knows how to do magic.” From what he’d seen, he could also guess how long Taehyun had been practicing, “I’d say he did magic for like six to seven years based on the level of his card magic techniques. At least six to seven years.”

Since Choi Hyun Woo could see how gifted Taehyun was in executing his magic tricks, he offered to teach him even more. He once again praised how talented his skills were, especially since it was only Taehyun’s hobby:

Kang Taehyun, do you want to learn magic for free? Contact me through our company…and I would love to teach you awesome magic. If you’re that good when you’re just doing it as a hobby, you should keep on doing it. It will be a good skill to have forever.

The clip didn’t go unnoticed by Taehyun. When a fan asked him about it on Weverse, he revealed that he’d actually seen the clip and explained how cool it was to be praised by a magician so skilled.

[200703] Weverse Replies ❣

🗣: Taehyun, did you see this??

🐿: I just saw it!! It’s such an honor, to be praised by the master magician..#TOMORROW_X_TOGETHER@TXT_members pic.twitter.com/4lBkg0b6Vz

— TXT Transla𖧵ions ☁ (@translatingTXT) July 2, 2020

Even though Taehyun became an idol, his childhood wish isn’t too out of reach.

See Choi Hyun Woo approve of Taehyun’s magic tricks, to the latter’s delight.
