[Rant] “Taetiseo” Or The Most Original Name In K-pop
Are you fucking serious?
Why, SM? Why was this needed? Why Taetiseo? Why not Seotitae, a name which would almost have the potential to rival the hilarity of Hello Venus/Penus? According to Allkpop: “The group name, Taetiseo, is presumably a reference to the names of the three group members – Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun.” Really? I guess those poor Sones need it explained to them or they’d wonder where the name came from.
I guess they score points for originality because no one ever thought of having a name combining the names of all their members. Not only that, but it seems like SM wants a piece of the Orange Caramel cake by creating a 3-member subunit with fairies and unicorns as their concept (though, to be fair, Orange Caramel did sort of move away from that). We don’t need Orange Caramel 3. Rainbow Pixie filled the void just fine.
I hope this is a ballad-oriented group. That’s the only thing I can think of that will redeem this but I’ll reserve further judgement until it’s released because I can’t say much more than that with just an image and a group name.
