Netizens talked about some of the best names given to a K-Pop group.
On one community forum, a netizen posed a question of what makes a catchy group name. In the writer's opinion, the following idol groups had the best names: TWICE, Red Velvet, EXO, WINNER, and BTS (Bangtan Boys). S/he wrote, "these names perfectly suit the group and they explain the group's identity in a single term...if I really had to choose one, I'd pick TWICE."
After netizens shared their respective opinions, the top-voted comments were:
"First of all, with the word EXO, you can understand EXO's worldview (EXO from EXOPLANET), and so it's very useful. Even for the songs, XOXO, EXODUS, and for the concert names Exo'luXiOn ElyXiOn EXOr'DIU. And you can also make pretty logos out of it. And since it's two syllables, it has impact."
"WINNER and iKON!! The names match their members really well.. KangKimSongLee seem like they were WINNER since they were born and JinJiHanYoonDongJunChan seem like they were iKON since they were born..."
"I'm not bashing on iKON at all but I think it would have been weird if iKON had debuted under the name WINNER. iKON suits best with (the name) iKON, and WINNER suits best with WINNER."
Other comments include:
"Red Velvet just rolls off the tongue really well and their concept is so pretty"
"But don't you think BTS themselves made their name worthy? The name Bangtan Boys was strange at first."
"A Pink, TWICE, WINNER, and Akdong Musician. LOLLL why do they go so well with their names?"
"SHINee! They look like an invincible group with people who shine"
"Our kids, VIXX"
"BTOB!! It means that they were born to do music."
"They are rookies, but Cherry Bullet..."
