Update: MONSTA X’s Jooheon Changes English Stage Name To Joohoney
When MONSTA X released their latest comeback teasers, they may have revealed more than just a look at their concept!
On February 6, MONSTA X shared new concept photos for their comeback with “Take.2: We Are Here.” When the photos were posted on social media, the group’s fans Monbebe were quick to notice that Jooheon’s name was spelled in Korean as usual but written in English as “Joohoney.”

Fans recalled that Joohoney is a name that Jooheon has talked about before as a potential stage name.
Since predebut, Jooheon wanted his stage name to be JOOHONEY & he addressed that his current name keeps being misspelt (often Joohyun) pic.twitter.com/itl2H8kODM

Monbebe has been sharing their reactions to the idea on Twitter!
IF Jooheon does change his stage name to Joohoney… his name will contrast his image sooo much ^^
"Joohoney" is such a sweet, cute, fluffy name but his rapping and stage presence is ??????

JOOHEON SUCCESSFULLY CLAIMED HIMSELF AS "JOOHONEY" AFTER ALMOST 4 YEARS OF DEBUT AND NOT BEING ABLE TO DEBUT AS "JOOHONEY" PER HIS WISH.
