(My post is so longggg so if you wanna skip all the introductory speech you can look for the :D, which indicates what questions there are HAHA)

I don't know how to better title this post /OTL/
Was going around leaving comments on Witch MV and just started thinking how troublesome it would be if our boys had stage names. Like when we introduce them we have to put their stage names and their real names lolz.

SO, I'm sure many of you here may be multi-fandom, I'm not but I was in two fandoms before so I'd know, but do you guys prefer stage names or real names? :D

I mean we're really used to Boyfriend's real names 'cause they debuted that way, but knowing of the various stage names other idols have, would you mind our boys having stage names? :D

If you could be Starship CEO (XD) what stage names would you give our boys? :D
/cause well, I know Lee Sooman picks out stage names for SM artists/
(We also see that Donghyun took E.Black and Jeongmin took 쪼매니 as their respective pennames)


I personally dislike stage names with a passion HAHA. /why did I even create this topic/
I just feel like having a stage name gives yourself a persona on and off stage. It creates a distance between yourself and the you on stage. Like how Infinite L has a L side and a Myungsoo side (which is cute and funny at the same time but it's kinda sad there's a clear line drawn)
SOOOOO I'd stick to the amazing names Boyfriend's parents came up with (and thank God they are such amazing names ;~~; )

If I was forced to give them stage names them shades of blue +_+ cause well blue is the international colour for a boy lolz. and shades of blue has pretty names! I don't mind calling someone Sapphire (girly but hey it's classy lolz. okay, wait I regret it.)

/WHY DID I END UP RANTING/

Yeah, so, Idk, comment with your views :D

I would definitely use the real names... even for other groups i love, i learn their real names and use them. ^~^ Plus usually the real names are better than the stage names anyway lol

I like real names, not stage names. Let's face it there is pretty weird stage names, then you question how they came up with that. To me creating a stage name is like becoming someone else that your not. If I had the option to give Boyfriend stage names I wouldn't because I love their names. So why change them? :)
