Stage names are usually what the companies name their idols, but sometimes the companies are getting too creative and weird.
And here are the top 5 strangest K-pop idol’s stage names that you should know.
Kimchi is a former member of AA, he lives a normal life after he left the group in May 2015.
He once said: “At first, I wasn’t too thrilled about my stage name, but the more I thought about it, the more I liked it. It’s a name that everyone is familiar with and just like the dish represents Korea, I want to be a singer that can represent our country. I will work hard to appeal to many people with this unique name.”
It’s actually a cute sounding name, just odd in an idol context.
This doesn’t stop people from wondering why he went by Korean’s national dish of spicy fermented cabbage.
- Goldfish Zin
Goldfish Zin is actually Jinu’s pre-debut stage name, Jinu is now debuted with WINNER.
There is a theory that the Chinese word for goldfish is similar to his Korean legal name “Jinwoo”.
Goldfish is definitely an interesting animal to pick.
- Mint and Berry
HyunA and Sunmi is a former member of Wonder Girls.
HyunA’s stage name was revealed to almost become Mint and Sunmi’s stage name to Berry. These names sound kind of cute but many fans are relieved that they stick with their real names.
Worm boy is a member of the group UglyPumpkin. This group debuted in 2014 through GF Entertainment and disbanded in 2015.
Kazoo is Eunbi’s stage name when she was still in the group Ye-A, now Eunbi debuts in IZ*ONE. Nobody really sure why she was named Kazoo, Kazoo is an instrument that kind of sounds like buzzing.
