Question of the Week 56

This week's question comes from Harshmin:
What, in your opinion, are the best/cleverest and worst/stupidest fandom names and why?

Did we have this question already? I honestly cannot remember. Oh well, carry on. 
 
Personally, I absolutely love Jay Park's Jay-Walkers. I don't care what any of you say. It is clever. More clever than B2ST's Beauties, G.NA's G.NIs, Girls Day's DAI5Ys, MILK's Milky way, MyNAME's MYgirl, N-SONIC's Super Sonic, One Way's One Love, Rain's Clouds, Se7en's Lucky 7, Park Bom's BOMshells, Minzy's MINJas, and Sunggyu's Chingyus (all of which I giggle at in amusement). I pretty much adore any fandom names that are fun and are connected to the idol(s)'s name.

And I did like telling people out loud that I used to be a PlayGirl (until you changed, After School. You changed, man).

OH, and Boyfriend's is Bestfriend. Ha! You know what that means? That means you got friend-zoned by 6 guys, fangirl! Suck it!



But I hate, stupid ass fan names that make no sense. Shawols. Really? IAMs? BOICEs?
In fact, here is a list that I compiled of ones I dislike:
A+
Hip-hop village (okay, since 1TYM is kind of a K-pop pioneer, I will go easy on this one. This was probably one of the first fanclub names ever coined. They did not know it should not be stupid)
BANA
Shapley
Hi Ade
Fan God (really. How much more explicit could you be, g.o.d fans?)
Eels (who the fudge wants to be called an eel?) 
Bummies (I stand corrected. It can get worse) 
Henecia
Jjunaway
Papitus
Say A (this is difficult enough to say for English speakers)
Love Room (if you say this outloud, it sounds like you are asking for a room at a love hotel. And fangirls, I don't think that is where you are intending to go)
Linos 
Lizzbians
H:LLЁR (what were you thinking, Sunny Hill?)
Tinkerbell (are you fudging kidding me, SUPERNOVA? Really!? You decided NOT to stay with an outer space theme?!)
 
How does that relate?! It doesn't. In any way. So, no. Just. No.


If anyone has suggestions for later "Question of the Weeks", please send them to zomg.oppa.sareanghae@gmail.com, or leave them in the comments below. Thanks!

  1. I love the ones you mentioned, but Seomate is also nice, even though I'd never be one evar.

    I am = 2AM, pretty damn horrible

    And as with boyfriends, doesn't it actually mean the 6 members were friendzoned by their fans? Since it's a substitute for girlfriends which they didn't accept as a fanclub name since that would leave boyfriend's male fans out)

  2. Eunhyuk = Jewel

    Lay = Unicorns

    ELFs. So much ghei there.

    Shawols.

    Cassies.

    b2dkfhs

    Gni

    A+

    I actually like Sone, but not with the heart and stuff. Jaywalker is alright, but without the z. Gamers (Kyuhyun) is alright, too cause it makes stalking a celebrity seem kind of cool like Saw or something.

    1. Isn't it cuz Eunhyuk means silver or something?

      Delete
    2. Hyukjae likes silver

      Silver Hyuk.

      Eunhyuk was pretty ghei before he debuted; he wanted SJ to be called Prince and the fanclub Princess. He's lucky his geekery is adorable.

    3. I think gamers is a kyute game :O exo lay dafuq? I wil become an exo fan if Suho's fanclub name is "hoe" or Suhoe's bitch club

      "CROT CROT" Jay Park spurt sperm from his penis.

      Delete
    4. knowing EXO fans Suhoe's fanclub will probably be called Angelic Smile or some jizz like that

  5. Baby = BAP
    Cutie = Crayon Pop
    Everlasting Friends = Super Junior (friendzoned by 13 guys LOL)
    Pink Panda = APink (I like pandas but really, Apink?)

    You just wait til TastyTwins release their fanclub name lol

    1. I've always found baby-BAP hilarious because 'bap' is a slang word for dad in my language (kind of like pop)

  6. BBC = Block B.
    I just can't take a group seriously whose fandom is named after a phallus... -___-

      At least that is where I read news sometimes.

  7. Id say the most clever names are Blackjacks and cassiopeia. The most stupid are pretty much almost all.

    ReplyDelete
  8. jaywalkers is pretty good, VIP is completely stupid and unrelated, ELF sounds gay, Sone can be pronounced in 10000 different ways (but every way you say it is wrong to an actual sone).
    BAP's baby is absolutely disgusting. EXOtic was sort of clever but that's not really their fans names.
    Chocolat's is Chocolatier which is completely gay (couldn't help but lol)
    I personally like how PSY's fans are called Chos. I thought that was pretty clever

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. But... but Chocolat's makes sense. Both are French words and relate to the food in some way. But I guess the other way around would maybe work better.

      Heh, PSY and his CHOs. I did not know that.

    2. I choose Sully. It's very apt for Sulli_fag and applicable in varied contexts

      (n.) "There's a Sully in my pants when Sulli_fag is around."
      (v.) "I Sullied my pants after reading Sulli_fag's article."

    3. I herd u liek sully. so i use sully on a sully while im on a sully

  10. Some really bad names are
    Lizzbians
    SparKYU ( No but seriously, why would Kyuhyun's fans call themselves that? It's just plain retarded)
    Giraffes ( Again, I'm wondering what Ryeowook's fans are smoking)
    I still don't get 4Minute's 4NIA. Plain gibberish much?
    Brown Eyed Girls' Everlasting. Could've picked something more original
    C-REAL's C-REALing is just... their fanclub name sounds like a bad cereal commercial
    Also MYNAME's Nametag gives me the creeps.
    Also every individual fanclub related to gangsters (Hang Geng's Gengsters, Changjo's Changsters etc)
    There are more bad fanclub names than good ones sadly. I personally like Mir's MIRacle, Blackjacks and Sungmin's fanclub name isn't that bad either. Mmm, vitaMINs.

    did I mention that B.A.P's baby sounds ghei?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I actually like Gengsters :)
      Miracle is good too
      and yeah, I don't get 4nia....like wtf?

  11. I like all the SNSD member fanclub names besides "GorJess Spazzers". "GorJess" is a nice nickname and all but her club doesn't have the same ring to it as Sooyoungsters, Seomates or Taegangers.

    1. Ur just a hater!!!!1

      Jk
      But i think gorjess spazzers are the coolest!

    2. The 'Gorjess' alone is clever, but the Spazzers part is forcing it in and sounds awkward

    6. Too bad yunhoe is just a rebound guy. I know that bitches love jaejong
      Bishes love jaejong

    7. Jaejoong is ugly nowadays and he was never handsome to begin with. All those PS failed him -Xdafuq is a rebound guy?

    8. Rebound guy means
      That guy u are with after a breakup

      Delete
  12. I thought B2uty was one of the best ones. It's apt, and there's some actual thought that's been put in to it.

    SONE is something that had some thought put in to it, but still turned out retarded. 소원 = Sowon = So-One, that I have no problem with. Sowon is Korean for 'wish', So-One can be an expression that reinforces unity in English. Fine. But then some bright spark decided to merge the two O's into a love heart, to make it S♡NE. Meh. But nobody has a heart symbol on their keyboard, s they just write SONE instead, making it look like a one syllable word. Stupid.

    I remember when ZE:A first came out and didn't have a fanclub name. Fans decided on Royals. (Children of) Empire = royalty... plus in Korean it'd be pronounced the same as 'Loyal'. So yeah, a bit of thought put into it. Then their company come out and announce their fanclub name would be ZE:A'S. What the cunting fuck?

    And why do they like sticking random apostrophes in there? Like Queen's. Queen's what? Learn what apostrophes are for, for goodness' sake. What was wrong with Diadem?

    Also, ELF must have been thought up by a mong.

  13. Shinbi-unni, I am appalled that you brashly judged Cassiopeia as an illogical name :/ Have you researched on it that it's related to the 5 prominent stars of the constellation Cassiopeia? The 5 stars represent the 5 members :/ I think despite the notoriety of Cassies as among the delusional and pathetic (prior to the TVXQ-JYJ separation), their fandom name is among the most logically clever I've heard of.

    I think 4NIA is the best. 포니아 = Pornia? lol

    ON a side not, SISTAR's Star1 is very generic for a fandom despite that it was actually fan-voted. I was rather expecting a trickier one like from Star1 (쓰타1 / SeuTaIl) = Style. But meh, sounds Engrishy

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I thought that the "Style" pronunication coming from Star1 was the whole point the name was chosen in the first place. It still looks weird when typed as Star1 though.

    3. Both Rain and Yesung's fanclub members' names are "Cloud".

    4. a talent that touch the heavens and clouds but wasted in SMTOWN

  15. I hate the gamer thing :/ once some girl thought that I was a fangirl of him, just because my profile said "gamer"...

    and "Queens", "hello cupid" and almost every fanclub name...

    I like blackjack, cassiopea, M&M's, joyful, sweet treasure, e.vil... I think that's all

    ReplyDelete

    1. I only know blackjack cassiopea. Other than. Which fans are they?
      Lol @ the gamer thing

      Delete
    2. queens (퀸즈), t-ara
      Hello cupid, is the generic name for hello venus fans
      M&M's is for miss a min's fans
      joyful for ex-rania's joy fans
      sweet treasure is the japanese name for t-ara
      e.vil for e.via

  17. Tinkerbell's not Supernova's official fandom name. They actually don't have an official one for Koreans. But for the Japanese, it's Milky Way.

    ReplyDelete
  18. For individual member fanclub names I would have to go with Blingers (Jong-hyun) and Flamers (Minho). I mean Key (Lockets) Onew (MVP) and Taemint{s} (Taemin), are super cute names, what happened?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Flamer means faggot. MVP is stupid and so is Blingers. But Taemint and Lockets are pretty nice.

  19. I think Cassiopeia is pretty cool. Don't the letters of DBSK coincide with the constellation or something?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you look at 'TVfXQ' on a keyboard too, it's the same shape as the constellation.

      Delete
    2. Oh... indeed, D00D. Ah, it makes sense now. My mistake.

      Delete
  20. I like EXOtic even though it's not the official fandom name. I like Lockets and I like B2TY (just not the spelling).

    I like when fandom names have clever wordplay like Chingyu and Seomates but there's a fine line between clever and ridiculous. (Taemint what)

    I don't like BBC, Baby, Secrettime, and I like Block B, B.A.P and Secret. I don't like ELF, it sounds terribly cheesy. Flamer makes me think of Burger King. And ZE:A's is just lazy -__-

    BUT CAN WE TALK ABOUT FAN CUB COLOURS INSTEAD

  21. I think BlackJack is really clever when you look at how it relates to the number 21. That's pretty much it.

    I also like how 2PM's fan club name can be altered depending on how you feel about them: Hottest, Lukewarmest, Coldest.


    The dumbest fandom names belong to some of my favourite groups: Baby, BBC, Bana, Inspirit, Angel - - so much fucking second hard embarrassment.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. From a fellow BBC and Baby: I feel you .__. At first I thought Inspirit was silly but now I don't mind anymore.

      Delete
    2. The only thing that makes Baby sort of kind of adorable is that the boys pronunciation of BAP is so bad it sounds like they're saying Baby/

      Delete
  22. Blackjacks for 21 but I thought it suppose to mean to anyone? Lay off the fucking coke suk.

    I don't know why but I always like sone and b2uty

    But bana takes the cake of what the fuck is that? Let alone some of these groups names making no fucking sense.

  23. Have you guys forgotten about Kissmes? Worst group and fandom name...

  24. I've invented 2 fandom names for Qri: Qrious or Qri-pies. Dunno which one to choose

  25. Sunny Hill didn't pick the name, js. Their fans voted for it. 99 % chance to read Hitler.

  26. Chingyus is a fabulous fandom name. When Sunggyu is fat he has many chins :------)

    Rain Cloud

    BAD:
    the rest.......

  30. Ones I like:
    Cassiopeia, ELF, B2uty, G.NI, Blackjacks,

    Ones I go WTF:
    Baby(.....), Bana(seriously, wtf??), Inspirit(why?), Angel(so cheez), Shawol(seriously, even Shinee World is better than this, and coming from SM, I'm disappointed with your creative department), 4NIA, and the rest.

    wouldn't be better if MissA's fans are called A+?

    ReplyDelete
  31. The “BA” in “BANA” is from B1A4,
    and the “NA” is from the korean word “Banada”
    (which means “we have fallen for each other”.)

    thus, “Bana” means that B1A4 has fallen for their fans, and the fans have fallen for B1A4.
