What’s The Meaning of Gekyume?
Isn’t Gekyume a unique name? while it’s quite a unique name, many may even find it hard to pronounce it at first. But this isn’t about how unique or how hard it is to pronounce his name, it is about the meaning of his name so what is it?
Billboard has stated that it is a word that X himself created before his passing and the meaning of this word is ‘a different state’ or ‘next’ universe of thought.
