Name and Fandom


The name ENHYPEN means connection, discovery, and growth. Similar to how a hyphen connects words to discover a new meaning, ENHYPEN refers to how the members discovered each other, are connected to one another, and will continue to grow together.


ENHYPEN’s fandom name was announced on October 8, 2020 to be ENGENE. ENGENE combines the words engine, en (from ‘en’hypen), and gene. The name carries two meanings. One of them describes how fans represent a source of fuel and energy for ENHYPEN similar to an ‘engine’. The second meaning comes from the combination of en + gene, which represents the connection between ENHYPEN and fans through a common gene.

ENHYPEN has 5 Korean members and 2 foreign members. Jay and Ni-ki were born outside of Korea (USA and Japan, respectively). Jake was born in South Korea but moved to Australia at a very young age. All the other members were born in South Korea.
