Twitch viewers witnessed the most unexpected crossover ever on August 19 when Kpop star and Day6 band member Jae Park joined OfflineTV and friends in a game of Among Us.

Offline TV is a Twitch creator group that comprises popular streamers such as Pokimane, LilyPichu, and Michael Reeves. Collectively they pull in a huge amount of traffic, with over 350,000 followers on their shared Instagram account alone.

A Kpop star is perhaps the last person you’d expect to collaborate with a group of streamers. Day6 is a popular Korean rock band with JYP entertainment, consisting of five members, including 27-year-old Jae Park.

Once Jae enters the stream, the creators encourage him to step out from the group and introduce himself, to which one of the members joked “is this like a fan signing? Who goes first?”

He introduced himself and praised some of his favorite gamers saying “I am an extreme OfflineTV fan.” He told everyone that he “loves everyone here” but also let the creators and viewers know that he was “so nervous” and that he “couldn’t sleep last night.”

And in another unexpected twist, streamer Scarra had someone claiming to be Jae’s old college roommate in his chat. When asked Jae about it directly, he confirmed it saying “Robin has a lot of stories, we used to have a good time in college.”

Fans of both OfflineTV and Day6 couldn’t believe their luck, saying “as a Day6 and OTV fan, this was an unexpected crossover but I am not complaining,” and “Jae is so chill and the fact that he’s playing with OTV and friends (my fav streamers) makes it even better.”

It’s certainly possible that this collaboration will lead to more cross-industry content in the future, proving to be a good sign for streaming and Kpop fans.

InnerSloth, the developers of Among Us, have announced that they will be pushing an emergency server update after floods of reports from users that hackers have begun plaguing the game.

While indie social deduction game Among Us was first released in 2018, it experienced an unexpected lease of life in 2020, on a colossal scale.

In September the game surpassed 100 million downloads, and has spread to every corner of the internet, with many huge personalities streaming the game most recently including AOC a.k.a Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a popular American politician.

Among Us has experienced a new lease of life in 2020, leading to its devs scrapping a proposed sequel.

The extreme flip from quiet indie game to global hit has naturally come with its challenges, and the dev team has been trying their utmost to deal with the vulnerabilities that come alongside such unexpected demand.

One such vulnerability is the presence of hackers in the game. People have encountered varying levels of hacking including having their skins removed and spawning outside of the map, which seems to be as a result of hackers using mods in public lobbies.

Most recently, players have been experiencing a bout of hacking seemingly from one individual named Eric Loris, who takes control of the chat and forces every member to repeat the same message to “subscribe to Eric Loris on YouTube (or I hack your device.)”

InnerSloth take action against hackers

As reports increased, InnerSloth were forced to take action to prevent the problem from getting worse. On Twitter they said “we’re are super duper aware of the current hacking issue and we’re looking into it.”

They announced that they “will be pushing out an emergency server update so people who are in game will get kicked from games,” but for the time being encouraged players to “please play private games or with people that you trust!”

Developer Forest stated in his own tweets that the reason it’s taken until now to roll the update out now is because he “was afraid of false positives.”

He explained that “you totally might see the game think you’re hacking when you’re not. I’ve done my best to find this kind of bug, but my hand is forced this time.”

It is hoped that this emergency update will put an end to, or at least dramatically decrease the number of hackers in the game. Not only that, but allow the game to continue to prosper as it has done so far this year.
