Kim Jinhwan: Bbuyo
I don't know what it means..
(t/n: we covered it last time, it comes from 뿌리까지요정 (bburi kkaji yojeong) which literally means "fairy down his roots" ^^)
Song Yunhyeong: Hyah (Hyadi)
when he smiles it looks like he's making the "hyah" sound, so we got his nickname from there
Kim Jiwon + Bobby (babi) = Kimbabi abbreviated as Kimbab!
B.I : Ki Mam Bin
B.I's real name is Kim Hanbin but
when you pronounce it, it sounds like Ki Mam Bin, he takes care of the members like a mom (Mam?)
+ he looks like a Japanese quail
Kim Dong Hyuk: Dong Dong-ie
the members have been calling him Dong Dong-ie since a long time ago
Donghyuk's fetus name(?) was Dong Dong-ie
that's how fans show that they take care of Donghyuk like a baby!
Goo Junhoe: Goo June
an easier when to pronounce Goo Junhoe, would be Goo June!
(t/n: Koreans don't really pronounce the "H" after consonants and for the OE sound, they usually just say "E" instead to make it simpler~)
Jung Chanwoo: Jung Chwanoo/ Jung Jjwanoo / Jung Chanoo
during M&M they were pulling up a hidden camera
and when Hanbin called Chanwoo he went "Chwanoo-yah~ Jung Chwanoo~" since then all the members call him like that!!
there are lots of other nicknames too
today is our maknae's birthday~
let's hit the long run slowly
