Meet TST, The Group That Has Changed Its Name Two Times Already

Usually, it is uncommon for a K-Pop group to change its name. Unless there’s a reason behind it, or whether or not they move to a different agency and can no longer use their name, it usually stays until the group is disbanded. To be fair, it is kinda hard to build a reputation with the new name. Well, meet TST, a group under JSL Company which has already changed its name two times. Since their debut on January 1st, 2017, the group has changed the name from 7STONE to Top Secret to now TST. The group currently consists of five members (Ain, K, Wooyoung, Junghoon, and Yonghyeon), after member Yohan’s shockingly sudden death in June 2020.
