The name KETCHY was chosen as it is derived from Rocket Punch’s group name (rocKET punCH). In Korean, the words mean ‘attractive’ and ‘charming’.
Moreover, KETCHY is pronounced as ‘Catchy’, and Rocket Punch is appealing and memorable to their fans just like the English word. Their goal as a group is also to be catchy in the music scene.
While many were happy with the fanclub name…
