No it’s not “ab-six”. The group’s name is pronounced as alphabet “A”, alphabet “B”, six. Simple as that.

(G)I-DLE

Okay, so this one is understandable. When you first take a look, you might have a few different ways of saying it. But the correct way to say it is “Gee – idle”. The “G” stands for “girls” and the idle doesn’t mean idling away. When you say “idle” in Korean, it is close to the word “children”.

SuperM
