Name and Fandom

Name

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.



Fandom

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.

Members

ENHYPEN is composed of seven members born between 2001 and 2005. Their names are: Jungwon, Jay, Jake, Niki, Heeseung, Sunghoon, and Sunoo.
