Boy group TOO have changed their group name to TO1 following a series of contract disputes between their managing agencies n.CH Entertainment and CJ ENM.
The group announced their name change during their appearance at KCON:TACT 3, sharing that their group name will change from TOO to TO1. They also shared the meaning of their new group name: TOgether as ONE. They are preparing for their second chapter together after a rough patch earlier in the year.
Earlier in the year, it was revealed that CJ ENM had unilaterally terminated their contract with n.CH Entertainment. The two agencies were working in collaboration to manage TOO, with CJ ENM in charge of marketing and music production and n.CH Entertainment in charge of management, training and promotion. However, the two agencies failed to agree on the conditions for the group, and ultimately, CJ ENM took sole control of managing the group.
