Are You Pronouncing These Names Wrong?

CLASS IS IN SESSION

So, I saw a fancam of a girl calling JR from GOT7 "J-R" instead of "Junior" and I wanted to share some commonly mis-pronounced Kpop idol names and groups!
Leave other ones in the comments too^^

Zelo

Often pronounced: Zeelo or Z-Low
Correct pronunciation: Jello with a Z :) Zello~

Ravi

Often pronounced: Like the "a" sound in "rad", Ravi Correct pronunciation: Rahhhhvi, like the "a" sound in "awesome"

EXID

Often pronounced: "ehx-id" Correct pronunciation: E-X-I-D (ee-ehx-eye-dee)

BTOB


Often pronounced: Bee-tob :)

Leo


Often pronounced: Lee-oh

@moonstals It is pronounced MYNO. I think a lot of people just assume MEENO is the correct way to say it. I think @PassTheSuga and @aabxo might know this as well.

You won't believe all the times I've heard Xiumin pronounced incorrectly ;~; Like I feel bad correcting people but it gets kinda out of hand with all the "Xeeoo-mins" being thrown around =3=
