Top Actor’s Agency Succeeds In Changing Fan Club Name After Sparking Debate

It’s a good thing they changed it!

Recently, actor Byeon Woo Seok’s fan club name sparked debate. In a post that revealed his signature, he added that the fan club name should be Toilets, a play on his last name, Byeon, the first syllable of the word “toilet” in Korean.

While most defended the actor and were supportive of the name, his agency and fan club cast votes to try and change the name. Even though more than half chose to keep the name, they still went ahead and opened a fan club name competition.

Hello, this is the management team 람찌. Before posting, we would like to inform you that this has been thoroughly discussed with the actor and the agency. There have been many opinions regarding the fan club name, and through the voting process in January, the results were to keep the name 64% (198 votes) and to change the name 35% (107 votes).

Although there were more votes to keep the name, due to the constant requests about the fan club name and to change it, we have decided to open a fan club name contest so that fans can choose the name.

This is a space that is run for the fans, and although the actor chose a name for the fans, he and the agency agree that they want to respect the various opinions of the fans.

We will take name requests from March 7, 2024 to March 16, 2024. As this will become the new name he will call the fans, we hope you will be careful when choosing a name. Thank you.

After the voting period ended, they resulted with a new fan club name!

Hello, this is the management team 람찌. Thank you to everyone who voted for the new fan club name. According to the results, Mailbox (우체통 in Korean) won with 53% of the votes.

Thanks to everyone who voted, and the new name will be used right away. We will continue to work hard to create a better fan club. Thank you.

The new fan club name 우체통 (mailbox) is a play on the first letter of his first name Woo. The full meaning is “TongTong’s who think of Wooseok as the best”.  Netizens felt that they did a good job changing the name, and praised the agency for taking this matter seriously.
