Hello, this is TOMORROW X TOGETHER’s official fan community manager.
After TOMORROW X TOGETHER’s official fan club name was announced on April 25th, it has come to our attention that the name is currently being used by the fandom and fan club of other artists.
In the process of deciding on the official fan club name, similarities to pre-existing fan club or fandom names were not fully cross-checked. We apologize to all the patient fans and anyone that might’ve been offended by the announcement.
At this time, we have decided to revise TOMORROW X TOGETHER’s official fan club name.
We plan to carefully and thoughtfully check the fan-submitted ideas before the official announcement.
Please check the announcement regarding the revision for more information.
