Funny Korean Names

:

My old favourite, 범석 (BumSuck) has a new rival for best Korean name…영범 (YoungBum)

I hope if they ever go to an English speaking country they adopt names.

    Not funny. Those names have Hanja origins so the names have meanings completely unrelated to whatever English words they resemble. It’s really sad to see this kind of immaturity/ignorance.

    For people who actually want to know some funny Korean names—Koreans consider countrified or old fashioned names amusing (e.g. Samsoon from the Korean drama “My Lovely Samsoon” hates her name because the “soon” syllable is countryish and the “Sam” syllable means she is the third daughter. Not a sexy or glamorous name at all).
