    I love lunafly! Yun’s voice is gorgeous, so soulful and unique. Sometimes, he sounds like Kyuhyun. All of their voices blend so beautifully too. The english lyrics to their song are a bit corny though I must say and their mv’s are a bit… boring? Also, I hate what Nega did to their hair. They looked better predebut.

    I’m not sure I would even put them in the “idol” category at all. Were they even targeted towards the “idol” scene to begin with? I mean, why call them “idol-artists” when they have chosen to pursue the musical career of a band. In my opinion, that’s exactly what they are – a band . Not exactly indie, though highly influenced by the indie music.(although their YT profile states they are “K-POP’s Post-Idol Boyband”…okay, then…)
    Maybe we can think of them as falling into the same category as FT Island and CNBLUE (though these 2 groups, although they are not exactly following the steps of promoting commercial music, have members actively involved in the “idol” scene and entertainment industry). I can’t exactly see Lunafly’s members becoming MCs or taking part in variety shows (who knows what the future will bring, though). It’s just that they have that vibe surrounding them, the vibe of musicians, artists. They are Lunafly because they love music and they live for doing music. It’s just the way I see them. And maybe that’s why they do not promote on music shows; it would kind of bring a certain superficiality to their careers – small venues where they can interact with the audience seems to be more of their thing, and you can’t deny they enjoy it. A lot. Maybe this is what it’s all about: they just want to have artistic freedom and just enjoy every single performance. And by doing what they are doing, by stepping away from the over-saturated “idol world” and really connecting with their fans and just following their instincts they manage to do exactly that.
    And it is true that they are at the beginning right now, but I honestly can’t see any way for them to go towards failure if they continue minding their own business. Although this could be a theory as to way they have chosen this path (which would kind of contradict my previous statement): maybe by marketing such a band from the start towards a broad audience wouldn’t guarantee success, it could always end up with a not so happy ending. We all know that the higher your position is, the longer the road is to the bottom. But I really doubt this is the reason behind their approach to the music industry, since the boys genuinely seem to enjoy every single moment of their lives.

      That’s a good point about whether or not they should even be considered idols at all. Since they were created through the idol system, that is they were recruited, trained, and put together just like any other idol group, I think that’s what makes them more idol than indie. Idols are evolving and companies are training their idols to produce their own music. 

      This part of G-Dragon’s interview with XXL explains how he was trained as a songwriter before he even debuted. http://www.xxlmag.com/features/2012/12/korean-rapper-g-dragon-talks-k-pop-hype-new-ep-and-past-scandals/2/

      Whereas true indie bands like Busker Busker should be considered artists because they weren’t manufactured in any sense. They were a bunch of guys in their garage before they broke through on Superstar K. Lunafly borrows a lot of elements from the indie scene so in essence they are trying to seem authentically indie without actually being so.

    I really like Lunafly a lot.  Clear Day Cloudy Day has been on repeat since it came out

    I’m really liking lunafly. I lived In the Summer so much as well as all of 4k’s videos. Acoustic songs are so nice to listen to.
