Jellyfish Entertainment has revealed the official name of its first-ever girl group.
On June 17, the agency uploaded to its official Twitter a photo featuring all nine members of the group along with their group name, gugudan.
The name may come as a surprise for fans, as Jellyfish Entertainment used “gx9” in teasers leading up to this official name reveal. It looks like gx9 was the abbreviation for gugudan, which translates to multiplication table.
The complete member roster includes I.O.I alumnae Sejeong and Mina, as well as Nayoung, Hana, Mimi, Soyee, Haebin, Sally, and Hyeyeon. You can see all the individual member teasers here.
Meanwhile, gugudan is slated to debut by the end of this month.
