Netizens have already given the new group a nickname as the boy version of SNSD, giving them the name "So Nyun Chun Ji" or "Boy's Land." They have also identified the members in the leaked photo.
The rumor is that there are 9 members in "M1," however the leaked photo only has 7 members practicing, which makes one wonder exactly how many people will be a part of this new group. It may be possible that the group has been changed from a 9-member group to a 7-member group.
SNSD went through 3 revisions before making their debut with the current lineup as a 9-member group. As many fans may remember, T-ara's Soyeon and Coed/5dolls' Chanmi had been in the SNSD lineup.
Jino has not been identified as one of the boys in the photo. Netizens identified the following members in the photo:
