It has been confirmed by HYBE and Source Music that LE SSERAFIM has been decided as the name for the new upcoming girl group that will include former IZ*ONE members Miyawaki Sakura and Kim Chae Won.

Source Music opened the group's official social at 00:00 on March 28th and uploaded the logo motion film to reveal the group name.

The video contains the meaning of the name 'LE SSERAFIM' and revealed that it is the letters of the phrase 'IM FEARLESS' mixed around.

Meanwhile, Source Music formally confirmed plans to debut its first girl group under HYBE Labels, with former IZ*ONE members Miyawaki Sakura and Kim Chae Won. The team is set for launch in May of 2022.

Netizens commented, "The name sounds like a cosmetic brand," "It sounds like a medicine too," "The reaction for the girl group name is the same reaction when HYBE released BTS's name 'Bangtansonyeondan,' lol," "The name sounds like an animation name," "Sounds like a shampoo name too, lol," and "I like the name."

Please just hire an English speaker to confirm if a name is cringe or not... KPOP has been getting away with cringe lyrics and names for too long!!! lol...

Let's just do what BTS did and shorten the name to LSF

tbh for me every group that comes out with new names Izone Itzy etc, I never really liked them at first but they always grew on me so I can never really judge names anymore because if the group is good it wont matter.
