Yes, we'll say it again, having meaningful fandom names is quite a tradition in K-Pop. Artists and idol groups will often go beyond in thinking of the most creative and meaningful name for their fans. After all, who is an artist without its loyal fans?

In this article, we listed the fandom names of some of the hottest 4th-generation K-Pop girl groups and discuss the meaning behind them.

#1 Rocket Punch

Fandom Name:  Ketch

At first glance, you might not have guessed the special meaning behind Rocket Punch's fandom name "Ketchy."

And we don't blame you as it is quite a witty name! The word "Ketchy," which is 켓치 in hangul, is a play on Rocket Punch's Korean name "로켓펀치." If you notice, "Ketchy" comes from the sound of the second and fourth syllables.

It is not also just a random two-syllable word in Korean, in fact, it means attractive or charming!

Fandom Name: HAEDAL

There are two witty meanings behind LUNARSOLAR's fandom name "HAEDAL." The first one is literal as just like LUNARSOLAR, HAEDAL literally means sun (hae) and moon (dal) in Korean. 

Its second meaning is quite cute. Since together, haedal translates to sea otter," LUNARSOLAR and their fans will tightly hold hands and rely on each other just like the sea otters who hold hands not to be swept away in the water.
