Most of these strange group names are owned by K-pop girl groups that debuted in the 2010s. Not only that, but this group with a strange name also did not last long.

I don’t know what was going through the mind of the agency Star Factory when they named their girl group Bikiny. The group debuted in 2012 with four members, but at that time the name was GIRLFRIEND. After two members left and one new member entered, the name changed to Bikiny. The group disbanded in 2014.
2. Baby Bonus
This girl group under Maroo Entertainment debuted in 2017 with five members. In 2018, one member left, then the group went on hiatus and finally disbanded in 2020. Then his agency launched a new boy group whose name is also strange, namely Ghost9.
3. Rare Potato
Rare Potato is a three-person boy group under Imagine Asia (formerly known as Yedang Entertainment). They debuted in 2015. The agency also has a boy group with the same strange name, Welldone Potato.
4. Nasty Nasty
Nasty Nasty is a unit group consisting of Kevin from ZE:A, Gyeongree from Nine Muses, and Sojin. They were formed by Star Empire Entertainment in 2014.
5. Piggy Dolls
Back to K-pop girl groups, this time the Piggy Dolls, named by the agency Winning Insight when they debuted in 2011. The name was given because the three members are big women whose intention is to campaign for a positive image of body shape. But when the response to the group was not good, the members were forced to lose weight for a comeback, and this actually made their fans no longer interested. Finally, the group disbanded in 2013.
The boy group SNUPER debuted with six members in 2015. This is the first group from Widmay Entertainment’s agency. With such a strange name, the group was also unable to survive and just disbanded in May 2023.
7. Badkiz/Hot Place
If there is a K-pop group that is most wishy-washy, it could be Badkiz. The girl group debuted in 2014 with five members under US Entertainment. Then, after two member changes, the name changed to Hot Place. But a year later, the name returned to Badkiz. Not only that, after disbanding in 2020, they will be active again in 2022.
8. Honey Popcorn
Honey Popcorn debuted in 2018 through Kyun Create , with a total of six members. Three members are Japanese idols and adult film actresses (JAV), namely Yua Mikami, Moko Sakura, and Miko Matsuda. The other members are Ruka Tajima, Sara Izumi, and Nako Miyase. But Miko and Nako finally came out. Not only is the name of the group strange, but the name of their album is equally unique, namely Bibidi Babidi Boo.
9. Apple LED
This one is a rock group formed by Starkim Entertainment in 2010. The name LED stands for Logic Egoism Delete, which feels even stranger, especially with the affix of the name Apple. The group disbanded in 2016.
