I was going to say "Wow, these two should star in a drama together. Imagine how popular it'd be." and then realized that their acting stardom rose in the same immensely popular drama....

I don't know why this is a surprise though. Min Joon and Seo Yeon is a pretty normal name around Korea. It probably has more to do with those being a rather popular names itself rather than because of Suzy and Kim Soo Hyun's character.

I've experienced that myself. There's literally 3 other persons that have the same name as I am in a class.

If my teacher told me that I would glare at him/her (at least it makes it easier for him to remember names haha) yeah that's why nicknames are great.
