N.Flying Talks About Releasing Their First Studio Album, June Comeback Competition, And More
On June 7, N.Flying held a showcase for the release of their first full-length album, “Man on the Moon.”
About the title track, “Moonshot,” Lee Seung Hyub said, “The message of the song is that if you don’t change, nothing will change. N.Flying is a group that battles fear and anxiety in order to move forward. The idea is that we become closer through that fear and shoot for the moon.”
He added, “A lot of people know us through ‘Rooftop.’ It’s probably a bit of a surprise to hear us with a stronger sound, but if you listen to our debut track and b-side tracks, we have a lot of powerful songs. Since this is the title track of our first studio album, we wanted to put stronger emphasis on the band sound.”
Kim Jae Hyun, who recently filmed a drama in Japan, said, “It was the first time that I’d done solo work for a long period of time without my members. There were times when I really felt their absence. Since this album has all five of us, and it’s our first studio album in six years, I want to show that N.Flying is stronger together.”
Lee Seung Hyub shared, “Jae Hyun was busier than all of us because he was filming a drama in Japan. We have a group chat, and even though he might have wanted to rest after filming, he found a practice room and kept practicing with us and asked us questions through video chat. As soon as he came back, he participated in recording for the album until the end. I thought he was amazing.”
N.Flying is one of several K-pop acts who have announced comebacks in June, kicking off the summer comeback rush. Kim Jae Hyun said, “There are a lot of artists who are making comebacks, so of course we’d like it if we got good results. But since we’re at a time when K-pop is receiving interest from all over the world, I want to push K-pop not in the direction of a competition but more as a genre where we can all share the different kinds of music we make.”
N.Flying released their first studio album, “Man on the Moon,” on June 7 at 6 p.m. KST. Check out the MV for title track “Moonshot” here!
