This is a list of frequently asked questions we receive, please take a moment to read this before sending in a question.
• Was ‘WE’ their debut?
It was not, ‘WE’ is a pre-debut digital single released as a surprise gift to their fans for waiting patiently for their debut.♡
• What is the meaning behind Pristin’s name?
Pristin is the combination of the words Prismatic, meaning bright and vivid, and Elastin, meaning flawless strength. Together they produce the meaning “we will combine our shining charms to become top stars”.
• What does your fanbase name, “LadyTeen”, come from?
In 2013, Pledis Entertainment held a series of livestreams (17TV) for their male trainees, who went on to debut as now very famous group Seventeen. Some of Pledis’ female trainees took part in season three and performed in the second LIKE17 concert. These girls were referred to as “ladyteen” by fans, and as a result, LadyTeen International was born!
• Can you translate this for me?
If we deem it is something useful for fans to know and we’re not preoccupied at the moment, sure! If you send us a screenshot of a Korean fan’s tweet and ask us to explain it in full, maaaaaybe not…
• If you’re international, why do you only use English?
We use English as it one of the widest spoken languages on Earth (ranking #2 in the 2015 Ethnologue with around 942 million speakers worldwide). There are plenty of Pristin fanbases for different languages/countries and we plan on compiling a Twitter list in the near future.
• Do you know other languages besides English?
Collectively, we fluently speak English, Korean, Italian, Romanian, Portuguese, Indonesian, Chinese, and Japanese. Feel free to send us a message in any of these if it makes it easier for you.
• May I translate your translations into another language?
You may, but only if you provide credit to our original translations. We would greatly appreciate a heads-up as well.
• I made this account for Pristin, can you support it?
We will support your account if you tweet to us so we can RT it but we will ONLY accept shutouts for actual fanbases, sorry!
