WEi Announces Their Official Fandom Name — And Fans Are Having Mixed Reactions
OUI Entertainment’s newest boy group WEi has officially announced their fandom name.
On their official fancafe announcement, they revealed the name to be RUi.
The name references constellations. Out of 28 constellations, WEi’s first syllable, “We,” is the 17th constellation and “Lu/Ru” is the 16th.
In other words, RUi are always illuminating the way for WEi!
It also means “R U i?” (Are you I?) meaning WEi and RUi recognize eachother as destiny and are a mirror image of eachother.
However, some fans have mixed opinions about this name. In addition to Wei Rui being the name of an athlete, some have brought attention to the fancafe’s poll where “MEi” received the most votes.
