Gugudan recently announced their official fan club name, and some fans of Boyfriend are finding it problematic. 


On December 16, Jellyfish Entertainment officially revealed that fans of Gugudan are their 'Dan-jjak' (in English 'Dear Friend'), which can translate to 'Best Friend.' However, a
s you may know, Boyfriend have been using the fan club name 'Best Friend' since August of 2011. 


Currently, some Boyfriend fans are claiming that the similar name and meaning of the two fan club names are a problem, even demanding Jellyfish Entertainment to properly address the issue. Meanwhile, some netizens believe 'Dan-jjak' and Best Friend are two different names, therefore, there is no problem.

Guys. Bestfriends didn't start this. Sure theres some people who are complaining now that allkpop started the drama but before this article was published, there rly weren't any people who cared?? maybe one or two in the depths of twitter but why tf do they have to make boyfriend stans look so problematic? like literally 99% of people don't give a shit abt gugudans fandom name.

Actually Gugudan are using Dear friend for international fans/english fan name and danjjak for korean; and, if I'm right, danjjak is dear friend and ddanjak is best friend. Besides the person that started this topic didn't seem like a Boyfriend fan at all...

as big of a "nugu????" that BF is, nugudan should respect their sunbaes by changing their fanclub name so something else

Your opinion. Mine is that your bunch of scrawny makeup wearing dickless little pansy fucks don't deserve any respect.
