Big Hit Entertainment boy group TXT will be changing their official fan club name.
On May 6, Big Hit Entertainment posted a statement on TXT’s fan community regarding their official fan club name.
Previously on April 25, TXT announced their official fan club name to be “YOUNG ONE” after gathering their fans’ ideas for approximately two weeks through their fan community.
However, the group’s fan club name happened to be very similar to the fandom name of Girls’ Generation‘s Tiffany, which is “Young Ones.” Recently, she has been promoting solo under the name Tiffany Young in the United States and she explained last September that her fandom name “means let’s be together forever.”
This is TXT’s official fan community manager.
After TXT’s official fan club name was announced on April 25, it has come to our attention that the name is currently being used by the fandom and fan club of other artists.
In the process of deciding on the official fan club name, similarities to pre-existing fan club or fandom names were not fully cross-checked.
We apologize to all the patient fans and anyone that might’ve been offended by the announcement.
At this time, we have decided to revise TXT’s official fan club name.
We plan to carefully and thoughtfully check the fan-submitted ideas before the official announcement.
Please check the announcement regarding the revision for more information.
