Fans can watch SuperM’s interview on YouTube

Before the show aired on Oct. 9, the interview with SuperM was uploaded to TheEllenShow YouTube channel. In the interview, the members of SuperM introduced themselves and taught DeGeneres how to “jop.” Ten asked DeGeneres for help deciding on a name for SuperM’s fans.

“We’ve been thinking a lot about the names, right? Because we want the best name for our fans,” he said. “But I feel like today, we need your help.”

DeGeneres came up with M-Joppers and Mark suggested having fans say “Assemble,” but none of the ideas thrown around became permanent.

“This is the name we’re going to be calling them forever,” Mark said. “And so we wanted to pick the perfect one.”

Ellen DeGeneres asked the members of SuperM if they were single

While K-pop idols usually keep their personal lives private, most western media outlets still ask idols about their dating lives. In the interview, DeGeneres asked the members of SuperM if they were single. All of the members said they were.

“Wait, why are you always curious about this, though?” Mark asked.

“It’s my job,” DeGeneres replied.

Mark’s question earned praise from fans on social media. Some found his comeback to the question to be hilarious, while others viewed it as Mark calling out the media’s obsession with K-pop idol’s private lives.

“ELLEN ASKED IF SUPERM WERE SINGLE AND MARK SAID WHY DO YOU GUYS ALWAYS ASK THAT HEJSJSNSNSNDMSKKS,” wrote a Twitter user.

“mans said what needed to be said,” a fan tweeted.

“UGH T H I S !!!! like why do yall care if theyre dating or not. its none of your business anyway…,” another fan tweeted.
