SM Entertainment’s upcoming super group, Super M, which consists of Kai (EXO), TaeMin (SHINee), Mark (NCT), BaekHyun (EXO), Lucas (WayV), Ten (WayV),and TaeYong (NCT) has been one of the most talked about topics in K-Pop lately.
On a popular online community in South Korea, netizens have however discovered that some international fans were slightly confused by the group’s name. Super M. Say the first half of the name really slowly for 0.5 seconds and really fast for the remaining half. SooperM!
The fans do seem to have a point.
If we read it like this “superm”, the “u” is pretty much the only alphabet that is keeping it slightly away from making it sound like “sperm”. What do you think?
Is SuperM a good choice for the group’s name?
