Get ready for the upcoming arrival of a new girl group from Fantagio, mainly because of their "unique" name!

According to a new statement from the company, its 8-member girl group project, iTEEN Girls will be renamed Weki Meki and will be making their debut in August. Fantagio says that the name has a double meaning; the Weki part refers to members using keys to open up to a new world while the Meki part refers to the 8 personalities of each member.

Upon hearing about this new girl group and their name, fans have had a series of, shall we say, interesting responses to it:

What do you think about Fantagio's new girl group and their name, Weki Meki?
