And almost a month later, Hyolyn held a live broadcast on March 27 to excitedly reveal her official fandom name!
Out of the three names provided, Hyolyn revealed that she ended up choosing a name for the fandom herself, and she chose “BAE”!
Look at how excited she was to call us bae 😭😭😭😭
The fact that she doesn't give a fuck about everyone telling her to not choose bae 💞
If Hyolyn likes it and is comfortable with bae then let's all be supportive and give her lots of love

Although fans may have had other preferences, they’re happy to see how pleased she is with the name, and are proudly calling themselves “BAE” now!

This name is especially meaningful, as it’s a two-fold name that is very transparent about her love for fans, and also alludes to her one of her very first singles as a solo artist, also titled “BAE”.
Congratulations to Hyolyn and her fans, BAE!
