LE SSERAFIM, a K-Pop group, is all set to host their first fan meeting, ‘FEARNADA 2023 S/S‘, this weekend on March 18-19 at the Seoul Olympic Hall.
Fans who have already arrived early have picked up their official fan light sticks from the merch booth. However, the design of the light stick has sparked some reactions from Korean netizens.
According to many netizens, the design of the light stick reminded them of a flat iron, the styling tool for hair. While some fans found the design amusing, others were not pleased with it.
One netizen even joked that they would be tempted to straighten someone’s hair with it at a concert.
Despite the mixed reactions, the light stick has five different colors that represent each member’s gemstone. When lit up, it adds a vibrant element to the concert and creates an energetic atmosphere.
Here are some of the reactions of netizens on LE SSERAFIM‘s official light stick design:
“It’s a flat iron…”
“I don’t know if it’s because I watched ‘The Glory‘ yesterday, but it seriously looks like a flat iron.”
“I feel like it should be used at an electronics sale… not at a K-Pop concert.”
“It does look like a flat iron, but at the same time it somehow works with LE SSERAFIM‘s image so I’m not mad about it?? Is that just me?”
“If it weren’t gray, would it look less like a flat iron…?”
Despite the divided opinions, fans are eagerly waiting to see the light stick in action at the fan meeting.
