Watch: Red Velvet’s Irene Gets Teary Sending A Video Message To Her Mom
Red Velvet members Irene and Joy appeared on the November 22 broadcast of JTBC’s “Let’s Eat Dinner Together” and went on a mission to find someone to eat dinner with.
Irene paired up with Lee Kyung Kyu and rang the doorbells of an apartment building in the Seoul neighborhood of Yangjae. With minutes left until the 8 p.m. cutoff time, a young woman in her 20s welcomed the two celebrities into her home for dinner.
After dinner, the three of them sat around the table and talked about their lives. The young woman said she moved to Seoul from Gwangju three years ago and currently works as a teaching assistant at her university. She opened up about being homesick and missing her family, which Irene also sympathized with.
Irene asked her, “Isn’t it nice when you go back home?” to which the teaching assistant replied, “I love it. I get to eat my mom’s home-cooked meal.” Irene continued, “I love everything [about going home] like going to the grocery store with my mom, her telling me to do chores, and her nagging.”
Lee Kyung Kyu looked at her in disbelief and asked her if she really liked her mom’s nagging, and Irene replied, “I can’t hear her [nagging] since we’re so far away. So I miss it.” Then, he asked the two girls to send a video message to their parents back home.
Irene looked into the camera and said, “Mom. I talk often with you [on the phone], but every time we talk I’m not affectionate and regret it when I hang up.” Then the girl group member became emotional and teared up, unable to complete the video message.

On November 21, tickets went on sale for the group’s concert “Super Show 7.” The concerts on December 16 and 17 both sold out within nine minutes.
As a result, the decision was made to add another concert on December 15 at 8 p.m. KST.
Since the first in February 2008, “Super Show” has been held about 120 times in 20 regions with approximately 1.8 million audience members. “Super Show 7” in Seoul will take place from December 15 through 18 at Jamsil Arena.
Seulgi’s Father Shows Full Support For Red Velvet Through Heartwarming Phone Call
Red Velvet appeared as guests on the November 23 episode of SBS Power FM’s “2 O’Clock Escape Cultwo Show.”
When asked what the “killing part” of Red Velvet’s new song “Peek-A-Boo” is, Seulgi replied, “I like the part where Joy goes ‘Ha Ha Ha.’ It’s really charming.” Wendy, on the other hand, answered that her favorite part was when Irene sings “Peek-A-Boo” three times in the chorus.
Red Velvet then performed the new track live on stage with fellow guest ALi praising their performance repeatedly.
One of the topics that came up during the show was the members’ families. Joy first revealed that her father was very good at table tennis to the point where it wasn’t just a hobby anymore. “I heard that he’s been teaching children,” Joy explained. “He has even won first place in a contest.”
Seulgi also began talking about her father which led to an unexpected turn of events. When she said her father worked for the government and was busy due to the national college entrance exam, the MCs tried calling him on the phone to Seulgi’s surprise.
“Dad,” Seulgi said as the call got through. To this, her father replied in a sweet voice, “Yes, my princess.” He added that he was with his employees who also wanted to talk to Red Velvet via phone. After saying “Peek-A-Boo” is a great song, Seulgi’s father said, “Our five princesses are going through a lot. I wish them a happy future with great songs.”.
