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

SEE ALSO: CNBLUE talk about their comeback and 7th album in an exclusive interview


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.

    The members themselves never calls him Junior. There was an interview with JJ Project where JB called him Jinyoung and he actually corrected it into Junior but JB didn't care and calls him Jinyoungie again. LOL. Plus the sunbaes LOVES calling him by his real name due to obvious reasons.

    Between members, it's rare that they call themselves by their stage names. GD calls Taeyang Youngbae. Same for members in BTS such as J-Hope
