"We can be bearers of hope in these dark times": Ben&Ben launch official fandom "Lights"

UPDATE: Ben&Ben has decided to suspend the fandom name Lights "until further notice"


Ben&Ben want to be your light and you to be the light for others.

On Thursday afternoon (09/03), the Filipino folk-pop act announced the launch of their official fandom, called Lights, on social media. 

"We hold high respect for K-pop culture and fandoms." Ben&Ben suspend fandom name Lights "until further notice"

“We are naming the fandom ‘Lights’ because it reminds us that we can be bearers of hope in these dark times. We can be Lights to others," The 'Nakikinig Ka Ba Sa Akin' outfit writes in a statement. "And we can do so by being united in soaring higher together and working to achieve higher and higher goals."

In their statement, they add that the name Lights was borrowed from the title of their first full-length album Limasawa Street. Limasawa means "a place of light."

Lights has no affiliation with the group's defunct fan-initiated following Ben&Ben BBs, which dispersed earlier this year. Ben&Ben revealed that they are "in absolutely good terms" with the founders of the Ben&Ben BBs community. "We wish them the best in their endeavours," they write.
