Pann: Groups that almost debuted with these names

1. [+121, -5] Seo Eunkwang almost debuted as Silverlight ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+89, -2] Big Dipper for Infinite ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+87, -1] It would've been funny if they debuted with these names ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+29, -2] Infinite L almost debuted as MS Myungsoo like NS Yoonji ㅋㅋㅋㅋ It means Myungsoo Myungsoo ㅋㅋㅋㅋ There were also Gaon, Hwarang, and etc... Woohyun was originally named L.

5. [+26, -0] I don't know about other groups but if BTS debuted as Young Nation or Big Kids, we would've laughed at how stupid Bangtan Boys sounds ㅋㅋ Honestly, I was confused when I first heard their group name.

6. [+25, -2] Arirang ㅋㅋㅋㅋ The fandom name would've been Seurirang ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+22, -2] Thanks for debuting as Bigbang. If they chose Diamond, the fandom name would've been something like Miners.

8. [+19, -0] The class of Cube ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Why are they doing this to B2ST and BTOB....
