BIGHIT MUSIC (formerly BIGHIT Entertainment) has been preparing its newest male idol group for their debut.
The company has been slowly releasing information about their upcoming boy group using the temporary name, Trainee A. A YouTube channel with the same name was discovered last year and it has been releasing videos of the group ever since. Trainee A is a diverse group with seven members who are slated to debut this year.
Netizens recently uncovered trademarks BIGHIT MUSIC filed for the name ALONERS ASSOCIATION that they now believe to be the official name of the new group.
Fans have already started reacting to the name and have hilariously begun considering fandom names.

Fans are guessing the group will go by the abbreviation “ALAS,” like BIGHIT MUSIC senior groups have shortened their names to BTS and TXT.
aloners association isn’t that bad 😭 anyways they’ll prob abbreviate it to alas
