Topp Dogg Announces New Name, XENO-T, And Stage Name Changes
Hunus Entertainment, Topp Dogg’s label released a statement announcing that the 5 member group will continue to promote without A-Tom, or Kim Sanggyun. Kim Sanggyun is currently promoting in JBJ.
The remaining 5 members, Sangdo, Hojoon, B-Joo, Xero, and Yano will continue to promote under the group’s new name, XENO-T. Along with the change, members Yano and B-Joo decided to change their stage names. Yano will be performing under Sangwon and B-Joo will be promoting under the name “B-Jew” or Bjyu”. B-Joo’s change seems like it’s more of a spelling change rather than a full name change.
The 5 year old group has undergone many changes, with members like Hansol, Kidoh, and more leaving. The once 13 member group is down to just 5, but are planning on coming back strong.
Check out the company’s statement below.
