KNK revealed the behind story of their group name during an interview with Xports News!


Seung Jun shared his initial thoughts on hearing their group name with, "When our CEO told us that our name will be KNK, I felt like the sky was falling down. We really wanted a cool name for us, but now after thinking over it for awhile, I realized that it's unique, and special. At the time, everyone in our company was in a state of alarm, but we decided to go along with it. Now I like it, and I believe that we were able to make an impression in the beginning due to our name."

You Jin added, "I'm the person who was against the name until the very end. I even checked X on the final vote. Our other options were Must One, Kaiser, Guys, Rose of Sharon, and more. Out of all, I liked To the O and Royal the best."


Can you see KNK being named anything else (Guys...?!)?

  1. KNK

It seems to fit them perfectly somehow though and I think that's because 크나큰 sounds like a strong name for a group of tall mature guys like they are. I can't imagine it suiting a group like ASTRO hehe

I used to think their name was pronounced "kink"

You need to understand this from a male perspective. I love KNK, but what if they went with Guys? If someone ask me who's one my favorite groups i would have to say I'm really into Guys now a days. I would later have to call myself a Tinkerbell cause I'm a fan of Guys. KNK might be a strange name, but it's alot better than Guy and make less awkward for dudes. Rose of Sharon is a cool name but I highly doubt them or the Korean fans can pronounce that.

I thought their name was weird at first too. I got used to it tho, and it's definitely unique :)

Royal sounds better though.... I guess I'm the weird one then -"-a

Lol. When I first came across their name I thought they were named KKK. I usually scroll down fast and just catches glimpse of the article title and I was so surprise but than I realize it was actually KNK

Well, it's much better than just Guys~
