You'd actually be surprised by some of the things you probably didn't know about your favorite K-Pop idol groups before they actually debuted.

Some of them had different stage names and also group names as well.

Of course, debuting as a K-Pop idol requires meticulous planning and eventually we have what we have today, but below are some group names that agencies actually thought of using before changing them later on.

Be thankful that they actually didn't carry it out like this.

Seriously, how can a group have its name 'Diri Diri Dara Dara Daru Daru Bop"...????? Who did even think of this? If I were a member of Sistar, I'd rather debut a year later than to debut with that horrendous name...!!!
