N.Flying's bassist Kim Kwang Jin revealed a funny advice FT. Island's Lee Hong Ki once told him. In his interview with Newsen, the rookie band member revealed that Lee Hong Ki once advised him and N.Flying to take all of FT. Island's fans.
"We once played as the opening act for FT. Island. As we waited backstage before our performance, Lee Hong Ki told us various things. He told Saeng Hyub that he wants to see us perform more onstage. He even gave us permission to lure all of FT. Island's fans, and that he'd be okay about it," Kim Kwang Jin narrated.
Aside from the unusual career advice from Lee Hong Ki, N.Flying feels very at home in the company of their sunbaes in FNC Entertainment, "All the company artists attend family concerts. During rehearsals, our sunbaes would help us check each of our instruments."
Being the third idol band to come out of FNC Entertainment, N.Flying has established a unique identity that would separate them from their seniors and label mates FT. Island and CNBLUE. Kim Kwang Jin, who shared that N.Flying found their identity and color when they were living on their own in Japan, described his band as having heavier beats compared to that from CNLBUE and FT. Island. "Our seniors have stronger melodies, but since we also do rap, we have stronger beats that naturally match our rhythm," the N.Flying said about the band's music. Furthermore, Kim Kwang Jin explained that while FT. Island is more into heavy rock and CNBLUE is an expert on simple, melodic tracks, N.Flying is able to distinguish itself from its seniors due to its more contemporary and trendy music aesthetics.
Meanwhile, N.Flying had its debut performance in the May 21 episode of "M! Countdown".
