EXO's alternate name would've been accurate af. For real..
Nobody seemed to have noticed how they tried to use SM 5 twice. Once for SHINee and the other for TVXQ. Apparently they really liked that name for a while. @daneylijules41 @Bizzycx @SherryMo @RebeccaLondon @ILikeHisFace123
paradise boys for exo is the only one that would have made sense... all the other ones were extremely corny... I can't even pronounce sisters without getting tongue tied meanwhile in the video they did it no problem
I like the idea of boy's paradise for EXO!
i wouldn't have minded BigBang being Diamond, I mean look at them now. They are definitely DIAMONDS!!! 💎💎💎💎💎

Kpop Fandom Name Meanings
So earlier @kpopandkimchi posted a card on how to pronounce (In Korean) some kpop fanclub names, and some commenters were wondering what some meaning meant. So, today I'm going to talk about some fanclub names, and their meanings/origins. SONE (Girl's Generation) Sone (Pronounce: So-Won) means "Wish" in Korean. Based off the girls' song "Genie", which Korean title is "소원을 말해봐" (So-won-eul mal-hae-bwa) meaning Tell Me Your Wish. It's also a play on words. Girl's Generation's Korean name is 소녀시대 (so-nyeo-shi-dae). The girls and their fans will always be one. So+One=SONE! E.L.F. (Super Junior) E.L.F. stand's for "Everlasting Friends". The name was chosen because the boys plan to be everlasting friends with their fans. SHINee World/SHAWOLs (SHINee) The group fanclub name is SHINee World (샤이니월드: Syha-ee-nee wol-deu), which is named after their first full-length album. Fans refer to themselves as SHAWOLS, which is an abbreviation for SHINee World. SHYA+WOL+ Shawol. Cassiopeia (TVXQ) Cassiopeia (Or Cassies for short) is named after the Cassiopeia constellation, which consists of 5 main stars, and TVXQ (originally) has 5 members. CARATS (Seventeen) So, if you're not a fan of Seventeen, chances are you've seen/or heard this name floating around the kpop fandom and your first thought was, "wtf". (I know what you may be thinking, and no it's not the food) Seventeen's first album was titled, 17 Carat, and one of the songs (Shining Diamond) has a repeated lyric, " Oh yes. I’m that Diamond. 흉내 낼 수 없는 Seventeen Carat" (meaning:"Oh yes, i'm that diamond. You can't copy this 17 Carat"). This was one of the many self fandom names the fans gave themselves. Eventually, the boys opened up a poll on their website where fans could submit fan name ideas. The boys picked around 6 names they liked the best, and the fans voted for which they liked the best. Carat was the winner, and was announced at their encore concert, for "Boys Wish" On Valentine's Day,2016. I AM (2AM)/ HOTTEST (2PM) 2PM's fanclub name, HOTTEST, comes from 2PM (arguably) being the hottest time of day. I AM+HOTTEST=I AM HOTTEST. MeU (F(X)) These girls waited a long time for a fandom name, color and solo concert, and they finally got one this year, MeU! The meaning is Me+U=MeU! Me+U was one of the girl's songs of of their first Mini Album, "NU ABO". Blackjacks (2NE1) This meaning is quite simple. In the card game, Blackjack, 21 is the highest number a player can achieve. TripleS (SS501) The 'SS' in "SS501" Stands for "Super Star". The third S Stands for "Supporter." So, they are "Super Star Supporters" Boice (CNBLUE) Boice is mix of "Blue" and "Voice". Blue, being the boys, and Voice is the fans. Boice! KAMILIA (KARA) The meaning to this one is that KARA believes their family are their fans. KARA+Familia (Spanish word for Family)=Kamilia. Any more suggestions? Leave them in the comments below!

Why K-Pop Fan Clubs Rule!
Hello Vingle K-pop Family! I know we all love the music and admire the idols, but I just wanted to take a moment and talk about how amazing K-pop Fan Clubs make us feel. Big Bang - VIP - Very Important People We could be part of a thousand different fan clubs, but what other fandom will make you feel like a Very Important Person? Whether you like one Big Bang song or every single album, and whether you found them today or six years ago, you are a VIP for life! :) Super Junior - E.L.F - Ever Lasting Friends We are never alone or lonely as Super Junior fans. You will always find others who love SuJu just as much as you and are ready to fangirl or fanboy along with you! What other fan club brings you together with everlasting friends? 2PM - HOTTEST As if 2PM's beastly hotness isn't enough, the fan club is also the hottest. As in, we are the hottest. No other compliment beats that. Of course, the hottest idols deserve the hottest fans. So the next time someone tries to bring you down, tell them you're the hottest! Beast - B2UTY Puns on puns with this one. Beast put a twist on Beauty and the Beast for their fan club. Since the Korean pronunciation of the number 2 is "e," they came up with this clever alternative for beauty. Now, not only are we the hottest, but we are also quite the B2utys. Wonder Girls - Wonderful It's not just the male idol group fan clubs that make us feel amazing. Wonder Girls' fans are absolutely wonderful. No one knows how to make us feel awesome better than our idol fan clubs do. Thanks to both the idols themselves and all the fantastic fans. MBLAQ - A+ Regardless of what grades we get in school, we are always an A+ with MBLAQ. The origin of this fan club name is a bit funny because all the members are of A blood type and the "+" represents the fans. Yay to A+! Se7en - Lucky 7 Our luck is never down as a Se7en fan. We are the Lucky 7s. If his music isn't uplifting enough, the fan club certainly puts us on cloud nine. Maybe it's a YG idol group fan club thing, which brings me to my next fan club... 2NE1 - Blackjack Whether or not we are good with cards, our game is on since we are the Blackjacks with 2NE1. Since Blackjack (21) is the winning card, regardless of whether you actually win or lose, you ALWAYS win. How cool is that? BTS - ARMY - Adorable Representative M.C for Youth How clever is this one? Fan clubs can even make us feel badass! BTS makes us feel powerful and strong as ARMYs but they actually explained the meaning to be that the fans will always stick with BTS like the body and the armor are always together. VIXX - Starlight We are literally (okay, maybe not literally) stars as VIXX fans. If anyone knows how to be the right amount of awesome and cutely cheesy, it's the VIXX fan club. Who doesn't want to be a star? SS501 - SSS - Super Star Supporters And finally, what better joy than to be recognized for being great fans. The SS501 fan club makes us feel epic with the Super Star Supporter title. After all, it does take a great deal of awesome to be good fans. XD To the wonderful K-pop fan clubs that make us feel awesome!
