On the most recent airing of 'Radio Star', actor Kim Min Suk talked about having the same name as idol star Kim Min Seok, aka EXO's Xiumin


Kim Min Suk, who recently arose to stardom following the hit drama 'Descendants of the Sun', said he seriously considered changing his name to prevent confusion between him and the idol star.

Kim Min Suk said, "Xiumin has engaged in acting before too, so when I searched actor Kim Min Suk he appeared. So before 'Descendants of the Sun', my CEO went to a name maker, and the new name they gave me was Kim Hwan Seung." 


He then confidently added, "But after 'Descendants of the Sun' I no longer stress about my name."

    Good thing he didn't change his name. Or else we wouldn't be able to ship bff couple KMS with each other- Kim Myungsoo (L) and Kim Minseok. It was destiny- even their initials are the same! XD

    AKP is sure full of salty EXO haters. Whenever a member of EXO is mentioned they never fail to comment before the fans even see the articles.

    But when EXO debut as actors they use their real name and not go by stage name. Like how D. O. uses Do KyungSoo when he's part of movies or dramas.

    Well, true. But What Kim Min Suk meant that before he was popular Xiumin's name came out first when he's trying to search for his name . It's not what people call EXO members by lol.
