When N.Flying’s MV “The Real” opened on deck, in costume, I knew I was in for a treat. I knew pretty much nothing about N.Flying, wasn’t really specifically a fan of bands, but I saw potential. Theme or story? Check. Costumes? Check. Catchy guitar riff? Check. It was all aboard, and I was completely on board!
Let me open with my one criticism and get that out of the way: To the other members of N.Flying, good luck fighting Cha Hun or Yoo Hoe-seung to wedge yourself into that camera frame! While vocalists are often the recognised faces of bands, it felt like there was an opportunity for Kwang-jin, Seung-hyub and Jae-hyun to be characterised further. After the long scenes with just the vocalists, for me, some of scenes with the rest of the group were a bit too little, too late.
