International Fans Want SM To Change Its Upcoming Boy Group SuperM Name For This Crucial Reason

6

Its been a couple of days since SM’s announcement of its upcoming controversial boy group SuperM which has the following members: SHINee‘s Taemin, EXO‘s Baekhyun & Kai, NCT‘s Mark & Taeyong, and WayV‘s Lucas & Ten.

The news was met with mixed responses as many fans of each group had their own concerns with the whole idea behind the group. SM seems to be aware of the criticism but continues to say that they’ll make everything alright and ‘unite fandoms.’





There is one more urgent matter that seems to be the focus of fans these days, after they became certain the boy group is not going anywhere any time soon, they’re worried about the name.

The name was already something many fans found annoying and stupid, others also brought up how easy it is to confuse SuperM with Super Junior-M, another SM group.

SuperM plans on promoting overseas and will debut in America but the name is too similar to the word ‘sperm,’ and once you see it you can’t unsee it. The name is very easy to confuse with that and if you’re in a hurry and pronounce it quickly it sounds as if you’re saying ‘sperm,’ which is not ideal for a group that plans to debut in America.





We hope that at least, SM hears fans this time and change the name.

Here are some fans reactions to the name:


What do you think of the name? Do you like it?

  1. I myself actually don’t have that much of a problem with the name but I think that there are going to be many people making fun of this name because of “sperm”, which is why I support the idea of changing the name. My main problem with this group is just that they are taking the members who are the busiest (which makes sense since they are the most famous and bring the most money to them). Taemin has already debuted so many times, Baekhyun just had his solo debut, Mark, Lucas and Ten are active in two NCT units at the moment. But the thing that I am wondering the most about is: WHY ISN’T JOHNNY IN THIS GROUP?!? He is the most American Idol under SM but you wanna tell me that he isn’t part of the lineup? WTF SM?
    Sorry
    I will support this group like I am supporting all the other boy groups under SM and I am sure that they could do really well whether they change their name or not.

  2. I would actually kinda like if the name was different but I’m sure with everyone that is in the group together they will make the best k pop group out there. It would be nice to see many fans unite and come together to support these boys.I hope they can reach above and beyond.if we keep letting the trolling get to us we’ll never be happy or satisfied with the group and the group name.And if you’re a true fan you would support the group you like no matter what .so if we ignore the hate comments and the trolls we can help them succeed more. But I do agree Johnny should be in this group

  4. I noticed that SuperM spells “SM” when you remove “uper”, so I never saw “sperm” but instead “SM”. I don’t know why so many people’s minds went to “sperm” but I can see where the “sperm” is in the name. But if they’re the “sperm”….who’s the “egg”? Ok, I’ll excuse myself
