DSP Entertainment held an audition for a follow-up group to SS501 and has announced that the new 7-member group will be called SS502 for the time being.
SS501, whose name stands for “Super Star,” “Singer,” and “5 members united as 1,” debuted in Korea in 2005 and Japan in 2007. In October 2010, it was announced that they would be back in 2011 with an album, but in the meantime the members are doing solo work. Hyunjoong filmed Playful Kiss, while Youngsaeng and Kyujong are holding fan meetings across Asia. On January 20, Jungmin will be releasing his comeback solo album “Not Alone.”
Considering the “501” from SS501 stands for “5 members united as 1,” does this mean that “502” in SS502 does not have the same “5 members united as __” meaning? What do you think about this new group and its meaning?
