12 of the Most Ridiculous K-pop Band Name Acronyms

Staff Writer August 16, 2016 August 16th, 2016

It’s an epic love story, spanning decades of musical magic: K-pop and its devotion to acronyms. From SMAP to BTS, EXID, and beyond, k-pop bands revel in the double-meaning of an acronymic name. Sometimes the initials spell out something simple and catchy, a name that could stand on its own but strives for something ~deeper.~ Other times, it’s a seemingly meaningless jumble of letters that only makes sense(ish) when translated as shorthand code.

Either way, the results are often hilarious. The meaning of those K-pop band name acronyms will keep you up at night, wondering WHY? Just WHY?
