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:
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)
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)
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)
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.
