B.I’s Lightstick Is Going Viral For Allegedly “Adding” A Practical But NSFW Function

Some fans tricked the internet.

Rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer B.I‘s lightstick is going viral for an unexpected reason…

Earlier this year, B.I revealed his lightstick for the first time. It is called “BINBONG.” Most groups follow this simple formula: the group or fandom name combined with “bong,” short for “eungwonbong” (the Korean word for lightstick). “BINBONG” comes from his real name Kim Han Bin rather than his fandom “ID.”

Shout with me bin bong bin bong~~

— B.I

His lightstick is one of the most unique. It also is inspired by Riley’s imaginary friend, Bing Bong, from the 2015 Disney-Pixar animated film, Inside Out.

Despite its wholesome origins, B.I’s lightstick is going viral for a NSFW reason…

The TikTok below has gone viral with 2.5M views and 415.3K likes at the time of writing. The video included a screenshot of a tweet, announcing that a “new vibration mode” has been added to B.I’s lightstick application.

ANO NA TAYO?!? HAHAHAHSHSHSHSHS #binbong #hanbin #lightstick #kpopfyp #_missm

Netizens were shocked, to say the least, by the “announcement.” While a vibration mode could be practical and helpful for blind/vision-impaired fans so that they can cheer along with other fans, most had a whole other purpose in mind…

The Original Post was made by @hanbinsnaps on Twitter. The tweet had gone viral with 11.1K likes.

Twitter users were not as convinced, though.

Some even pointed out what appeared to be a poor edit…

Sure enough, the OP responded that it was, in fact, only an edit made by them. The tweet was all in fun, and they had not expected so many to believe it.

Some fans were disappointed…

Still, vibration mode or not, B.I’s lightstick is one of the best made!
