Girl group XG have revealed the official fandom name for their fans!
The Avex group, who took the K-Pop world by storm with their smash second song MASCARA last month, uploaded a video to their official YouTube channel announcing the name on 25 July. The members of the group reveal in the video that their fans will now be known as "ALPHAZ." The name is derived from ‘Alpha’ which means the leader of a wolf pack.
XG revealed that they want their fans to join the group in becoming leaders. The moniker also alludes to the fact that many of their fans keep telling the members that they remind them of wolves (with their sharp performances executing insane charisma). The seven membered group uploaded a 2-minute video on their channel with subtitles in three languages, Japanese, English, and Korean, to reveal their official fanbase name.
XG, is actually short for their full name, Xtraordinary Girls, debuted in March 2022 with their song, Tippy Toes. The track was a hit among international fans and their single album sold out in just three days after release.
They released their first comeback, Mascara, in late June, just three months after their debut.
XG is a seven member girl group consisting of Jurin, Chisa, Cocona, Hinata, Maya, Juria and Harvey. All members of the group are Japanese but they are being promoted internationally with a big push in the Kpop scene. The members’ ages range from late teens to early twenties as all of them were born between 2002 to 2005.
