Big Hit Entertainment have issued a statement confirming they will revise TXT's recently announced fandom name.

On April 25, TXT announced that their official fan club name would be 'Young One', a play on the Korean word for 'forever'. It was chosen after going through fan suggestions over two weeks.

It was pointed out after the announcement that Girls' Generation's Tiffany Young already uses a similar name for her fans, 'Young Ones'. 

On May 6, Big Hit Entertainment posted a statement to the TXT community page, reading:

"After TOMORROW X TOGETHER's official fan club name was announced on April 25th, it has come to our attention that the name is currently being used by the fandom and fan club of other artists.

In the process of deciding on the official fan club name, similarities to pre-existing fan club or fandom names were not fully cross-checked. We apologise to all the patient fans and anyone that might've been offended by the announcement.

At this time, we have decided to revise TOMORROW X TOGETHER's official fan club name.

We plan to carefully and thoughtfully check the fan-submitted ideas before the official announcement."

We expect a new fandom name will be coming soon!
