They’re not impressed.
IVE debuted on December 1, 2021. Just a little over a yr after their debut, the ladies lastly get their first official mild stick. Fans should purchase by the official store, Starship Square, and anticipate to obtain the sunshine sticks in early February 2023.
The design is easy, with a white physique and a spherical dome. IVE’s brand is contained in the clear dome. A heart-tipped arrow decorates the dome’s base, referencing IVE’s hit tune, “LOVE DIVE.”
The mild stick will promote for ₩42,000 KRW (about $34.10 USD), an inexpensive value in comparison with most mild sticks which go for at the least ₩49,000 KRW (about $39.80 USD) or larger.
Despite this, followers don’t appear to be proud of the overly easy design.
- “Apparently, if they use existing molds, the cost of production is cheap, but if they make a new mold, the mold fees itself are a few tens of thousands. So it seems like they didn’t spend on mold fees as that’s the basic shape.”
- “Seems like the price of light sticks rose again. Our fandom’s having a new one soon, so it’ll be more expensive.”
- “Recently, because of semiconductors, the price of light sticks is increasing. It can’t be helped that it’s expensive.”
- “It looks like they put 0 effort into the design… It would have been good if it was either pretty or groundbreaking…”
Comparatively, teams beneath the identical firm have had extra distinctive designs. MONSTA X‘s jewel and crown-shaped design is a fan favourite.
On the opposite hand, WJSN‘s design can also be fairly easy, though followers love the floating coronary heart brand and glitter ball dome.
