do you know the meaning of sandeul's stage name? it's been bugging me forever because "deul" means multiple (like saying "hyungdeul" references multiple hyungs etc.) and "san" means mountain i think so does it mean "multiple mountains"?? on that note, what does "baro" and "cnu" mean GOD IN HEAVEN why do these b1a4 boys have such complicated stage names?? i thought "cnu" meant "seeing you" (by pronouncing each letter) for MONTHS when i was a baby bana. help me shinwhoo-kenobi, you're my only hope
ooooh yes yes they couldn’t just have simple stage names, right? (Or no stage names? Like what’s wrong with using your own name everyone in a while? I mean I guess if some idol who’s already super famous shares your name that I can understand wanting to pick a different–ANYWAYS)
I actually already got an ask about Sandeul’s name which I mediocrely answered here ~
I feel like with Sandeul we kinda got more background on why he wanted to make a stage name? Like he really wanted to shed his past non-idol image and stuffs but as far as the others…
Actually, the idea that CNU meant ‘seeing you’ was something that I remember being bounced around a long time ago! I don’t think he ever confirmed that though. Interestingly, but not at all surprisingly, the ‘shin’ of his name does mean ‘God’ or some sort of ‘deity’ which I mean CNU is pretty close to that level so it totally works. But also I remember he said that he came about picking CNU (shinwoo) after talking with the members and wanted the meaning of a ‘sweet and dependable
Baro can mean a lot of different things, all of which I think Baro picked because he though it summed up his personality (and being a ‘B’-type.. cause blood types, amirite?). But it means a combo of: quick, immediate, being very ‘present’ in this current space/place etc.
And not that you asked about Gongchan but ‘Gong’ being his family name, it’s actually a very uncommon family name in Korea so he kinda swapped it to be the first syllable of his stage name.
