In a V Live broadcast following the fan meeting, Kenta explained, “What is important here is that we are not just promoting briefly as a unit. The two of us will continue promoting together as a team from now on.”
Kim Sang Gyun added, “It seems like there were some fans that were suspecting it, but it feels great to have said it ourselves,” and Kenta shared, “I could feel the vibrations from the sound [of the cheers]. I was really happy and thankful that they congratulated us with such excitement.”
Km Sang Gyun also posted on his Instagram to express his thoughts. He wrote, “You heard that Kenta and I are promoting together, right? It’s news that we wanted to quickly share with you, so I’m telling you again!! Kenta and I will be promoting together as an official team from now on. I always say this, but I will become your artist that makes you proud by not losing sight of my motivation and always giving you good energy!!

As JBJ’s name was also chosen by fans, Kim Sang Gyun and Kenta will promote under a name determined by fans. On their official fancafe that opened on July 7, they are taking fan ideas for group names through July 10 KST. The members will look them over and select a few options, and the final name will be determined through a fan vote.
Congratulations to Kim Sang Gyun and Kenta on the great news!
