Attention, iGOT7! GOT7's Junior will now be known not by his former stage name, but by his legal name!

SEE ALSO: [OP-ED] What makes a music video?


The idol uploaded a post on his Twitter account on August 16, letting fans know, "Starting today I will be promoting as Jinyoung, not Junior. I will become a Jinyoung who gives more effort. I ask for your abundant support! Thank you!!!"

On Naver, Junior's name has already been updated to Jinyoung. Fans suspect that Junior had a difficult time going by his former stage name, due to the fact that some people made the mistake of calling him J.R, and as a result, the label decided to officially change his stage name to his legal name. 

Remember, it's GOT7's Jinyoung from now on, not Junior!

    Because people were incorrectly pronouncing it as "Jay-Are" when 'Jr.' is short for "Junior." Personally I've always called him Jinyoung (he's my bias), so I'm glad he's going by that now.
