On January 23, N.Flying guested on radio program “Choi Hwa Jung’s Power Time.”

The band revealed their unique temporary lighsticks for fans – which actually do not have any light. As their recent title track is “Hot Potato,” they are potatoes on sticks.

N.Flying shared, “We were going to use tornado potatoes (a Korean snack) at first, but after discussing a realistic option with our agency, we decided to use potatoes.”

The members added, “We buy three boxes of potatoes each week for the potato sticks. We ourselves wash them well, dry them, draw pictures, and hand them out.”

Although they started off with plain potatoes on sticks, the members have been working on upgrading them each time.
