On Jan. 17, the rumored name of YG Entertainment upcoming boy group was spread online.
Netizens managed to find out that YG Entertainment has previously registered for the trademark of the name ‘MAGNUM’ back in August 2018. It seemed like there is a high chance that the boys debuting through V-Live “YG Treasure Box” are going to be named ‘MAGNUM’.
Some fans were also able to notice that previously, when BLACKPINK was talking about the other names they almost debuted with, the girls shared that one of them was also ‘MAGNUM’. As such, many strongly believe that the upcoming boy group will have the name ‘MAGNUM’.
Fans who had learned about the possible new name have rather mixed reactions. Some even began to upload memes as the word ‘MAGNUM’ reminds them of the icecream brand.
What do you think about the name?
