Without the support of a large scale corporate to produce the band, Nam Tae Hyun is in charge of styling, producing, and managing his four-man band.
“Now that I’m on my own, I have so much on my hands. I’m the manager, the hair stylist, make-up artist…” — Nam Tae Hyun
As the leader, Nam Tae Hyun pays for all production costs, staff salaries, and other expenses related to keeping the band going.
Nam Tae Hyun admitted he is now deep in dept trying to make ends meet for his band.
“I owe so much now…” — Nam Tae Hyun
When the band’s songs don’t do well, it only drives Nam Tae Hyun into more financial crisis.

The hosts felt terrible for him.
“Can we get some sad music to play in the background please?” — Park Na Rae
