Park Ji-hoon paired the opening of his new Twitter account with a video announcing his official fan club name. Along with the opening of his official fan cafe, he had asked fans to submit potential options for his fan club name. The top choices were May, Memory, Wing.zip, Cherish, Jufiter, We-ty, Maeum (Heart), and Twiny. Before revealing his final decision, Park Ji-hoon decided to have a little fun and enlisted the help of his dog Max. Though things didn’t go quite as planned as Max had no interest in picking a name.
Finally, Park Ji-hoon revealed that his official fan club name will be May. The name not only refers to the fact that Park Ji-hoon’s birthday is on May 29th, but it also refers to be a verb, which expresses the possibility of something happening. This reflects both Park Ji-hoon’s unlimited potential and possibilities, as well as his fans’ determination to support him no matter where he goes.
