From O’G3NE to OG3NE
Recently, the girl group artistically adapted their band name to OG3NE, losing the apostrophe. This small change has no influence on the pronunciation of the band name, which remains “o-gene” (the “o” stands for their mother’s bloodtype O and the musical genes that connect the three sisters, while the symbolic 3 is also an E in reverse).
