Especially, many fans visited the studio for the live Twitter Blueroom and showed enthusiastic support and cheers for every word spoken by the members of SuperM.
The first question in the Q&A session was, “who would you choose if you guys could switch your bodies with each other?” Baekhyun (@B_hundred_Hyun) answered that he would not switch his body with anyone for the sake of the members; he made a humorous explanation that he has to keep his body to himself since he has the worst body. Taemin answered that he has been asking Lucas to make a “facial exchange,” because he wanted to have the “typical South-American handsomeness.” Lucas gave a big laugh to the fans by respectfully declining the offer.
Another question asked to the band members was to share a funny behind-the-scenes experience that occurred during the filming of the music video. Baekhyun answered that only his face looks chubby in the video because he was the only one who ate delicious food as much as he wanted, while all the other members were on a diet to show their nicest look.
A fan asked a question through the official account of Twitter Korea to Baekhyun, "what was the unforgettable Tweet or a fan that you met on Twitter?” Baekhyun answered that “some fans told me that they teared up after reading my Tweets, and I think those reactions from the fans are the most memorable to me.”
For fans, the Twitter livestream was really a lively and enjoyable experience that they almost felt like they were making eye contact while having a conversation with SuperM. Since this was an experience that all fans from around the world shared, SuperM members looked so passionate and happy.
Even after the livestream was over, many fans actively shared video clips and photos of the event which made the hashtag #SuperM trend on Twitter again. One user posted an on-the-scene video of Ten dancing, Tweeting that “this video is like a VR video that makes you feel as if you see Ten dancing right in front of you” making it one of the most Retweeted and Liked fan Tweet from the event.
