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

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!

  1. Jr.
  2. jinyoung

Wait what about JR? Why is that a mistake??

SomiKpop BoBo101 Thursday, August 25, 2016

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.

Aw, but Jr is much faster to write.

SomiKpop minzeliron Thursday, August 25, 2016

But it hasn't been "Jr" since early 2015...

SomiKpop bobbatea Thursday, August 25, 2016

Eww lmao. I've always called him Jinyoung bc I never cared for "Junior/Jr."

^_^ that's your opinion!! ^^

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

Yep! I was waiting on him to change it tbh lmao. Bc I've never called him Junior. He's always been Jinyoung to me.

Ok, it might take a while because I got used to calling him Junior...and I like the name Junior. But Jinyoung, when will 'Snowflakes' come out? I miss seeing you on drama. And Got7 comeback!!
