Rookie boy group Tomorrow x Together (TXT) has finally found a name for their fan group.
Fans of Yeonjun, Soobin, Beomgyu, Taehyun and Hueningkai can now call themselves ‘YOUNG ONE’.
The meaning of the fan group name is quite interesting though. According to BBC, the number “0” is pronounced as “young” in Korea, thus it means: “We were nothing (0), and then we became one.” Also “yeong-won” (sounds like young one) means “forever” in Korean.
However, there seems to be a problem behind this beautiful name because it coincidentally shares the same name as that of Tiffany Young’s fan base. Just last year, the American K-Pop star announced: “I have decided to say ‘young ones’ (for fandom name) because it means forever and you guys are my forevers”.
According to Koreaboo, although many of TXT’s fans do not mind having the same fandom name with Tiffany Young’s fans, others also worry that it could cause a misunderstanding that may lead to plagiarism accusations. Big Hit Entertainment has been receiving letters from fans of Tomorrow x Together expressing their concerns of how this shall be resolved to avoid confusion.
