110211 FANCLUBS: PT 1 - Names, Colors and Meanings by Soompi

Artists have many ways of identifying themselves - their clothes, style, even the font of their name shows their individuality. Fanclubs play an important role in distinguishing fans from one another. Artists like to show their affection to fans with a title fit especially for them. Fans like to let their loyalty to the artist they love be known to others. In Korean pop, fanclubs, nicknames and colors are a form of identity. Once you first step into the K-pop fandom it's easy to get lost amongst all the fanclubs. You might be a fan of an artist and not know how you should identify yourself. This guide was built especially to help you navigate the everbuilding world of fanclubs.

This isn't a complete guide. Groups that have been on a long hiatus (CJSH The Grace) or disbanded completely (H.O.T.) are not mentioned. Also, some groups do not have official names or colors yet.


Origin of Name: It is named after their first studio album. But SHINee fans refer to themselves as Shawols. It's a shortening of SHINee World (샤이니월드), SHYA and WOL = SHAWOLS.

This is interesting guys. Haha! It tells the meaning behind all of K-pop Fanclubs names. There are a lot of Fanclubs but I only posted SHINee's part. ^^
