As we have discussed previously, the meaning behind LE SSERAFIM is so magnificent and divine that it truly represents the exclusive image of the group: 6 luxurious high-class princesses.
Surely, you’re wondering who came up with the idea of LE SSERAFIM’s name and its meaning, aren’t you?
During their debut showcase and press conference, LE SSERAFIM member Kazuha revealed that Bang Si Hyuk PD himself came up with the name. It was the anagram of “I’M FEARLESS” and a representation of the angels of the highest level, Seraphim.

2. The Meaning and Vision Behind LE SSERAFIM
Furthermore, during their debut showcase and press conference, LE SSERAFIM also explained the figurative meaning behind the name “LE SSERAFIM”.
Since Bang Si Hyuk derived the name from “I’M FEARLESS”, it symbolizes the group’s self-confidence as well as their solid determination to strive forward fearlessly. Bearing the name of the highest-level angels, LE SSERAFIM carries the vision that they need not fear the world’s judgments or controversy about them.

So fascinating and touching, I remember getting goosebumps all over my body and tearing up that day.”Huh Yunjin.
3. Chaewon and Huh Yunjin Wrote the Lyrics for Their Debut Song
Now, did you know that Kim Chaewon and Huh Yunjin actually participated in writing the lyrics for one of their debut songs?
During the debut showcase and press conference, LE SSERAFIM members Chaewon and Yunjin mentioned that the company chose their lyrics to be featured in the #3 track of their debut album, “Blue Flame”. It may not be the title track, but having your name embedded on the credit list of your very first album is something worthy to celebrate, indeed!

“I was so, so happy. Since I got to sing lyrics that I wrote, I felt proud while recording, and I remember singing excitedly. Since song production is my desire, I will continue to work hard in the future as I want to participate in our next album too.”Huh Yunjin.
4. LE SSERAFIM Initially Planned to Debut Without a Leader
During their preparation, LE SSERAFIM initially planned to become one of the Kpop groups that debut without a leader. However, as time went by, LE SSERAFIM members believed that in order to build good and smoother communication with the company, they needed a good leader. Therefore, as the 2nd eldest of the group of native South Korean origin, they decided to choose Kim Chaewon as the leader of LE SSERAFIM.
“There isn’t anything difficult. My members follow me well. I’ve gained more responsibility than before, and I’m thankful for this team’s good experience.”Kim Chaewon.
5. Kim Chaewon’s Swift and Wise Response as LE SSERAFIM Leader About Kim Garam’s Controversy
Finally, one of the most notable fun facts you cannot miss during LE SSERAFIM “FEARLESS” debut and official MV showcase is when their newly-appointed leader, Kim Chaewon, showcased her wise and immediate response as the group’s leader when reporters brought up Kim Garam’s controversy.
During the QnA session in the debut showcase, a question came up to LE SSERAFIM member Kim Garam, asking about her bullying controversy. This controversy first came up when LE SSERAFIM first introduced Kim Garam as one of their members, but HYBE immediately denied that the accusation was not true. Moreover, the company also planned to take legal actions against the accusers if the rumor continued spreading.
This question was unexpected because it was unrelated to the “FEARLESS” official debut album, showcase, or even MV. Thankfully, Kim Chaewon stepped in and took over in answering the question, showing her wise and incredibly swift response as the leader of LE SSERAFIM.
“May I speak to you first as the leader?
We’re actually still discussing and handling this issue with our company. So, therefore, we’re very cautious about talking about it right now.
I believe there will soon be another chance for us to talk about this.”Kim Chaewon.
Following Chaewon’s response, Kim Garam then agreed and added that she would continue showing her best performance.
“It’s difficult for me to speak about it at the moment. But I will strive to show my best side as a member of LE SSERAFIM.”Kim Garam.
