The FEARNOTs are overjoyed with their new name. Many people have resorted to the internet to share their feelings about the new name. The appropriateness of the fandom name amazes fans. Many people liked that the name has double implications as it sounds like the Korean word for bloom and also means “fear not” in English. Interestingly, a fan pointed out that the members of the band had already hinted at the name of the fanbase. One such event was star Yunjin, who announced in a meeting with fans more than a month ago that the group was considering fandom names.
Others have pointed out that the group’s leader, Chaewon, suggested the name of the fanbase months before. The idol skillfully answered this suspicion with just an emoji, keeping the mystery alive. One FEARNOT also proposed a unique possible lightstick for the K-Pop girl group, influenced by the group’s debut videos and the most recent reveal of the fanbase’s name. The fledgling girl group debuted their album Fearless in May 2022 and have since become one of the fastest growing K-Pop acts in the industry.
