Baro's younger sister, I (Cha Yoon Ji), might have the most inconvenient stage name ever, but she explained why that stage name was chosen during her recent 'V' live broadcast.

She started, "I'm very nervous because this is my first broadcast.  Firstly, I'll introduce why my name is I.  It means that I always want to be the I who is singing, the I who is dancing. Also, it means 'me' and 'eye.'  In Chinese, it also means 'love,' which is a nice meaning.  It means I want to show you as I am.


"There are also people who ask me wasn't it hard to be a trainee for six years.  Whenever I had a hard time as a trainee, I think I tried to stay positive.  There were times I was negative, but I think that plummets me deeper.  Rather than wondering when I would debut, I tried to make up for the parts I was lacking in, and then one day, I ended up debuting. I believe that because that time [of six years] existed, I am who I am today."

    I is such an impossible stage name to search, though. I have to type Cha Yoonji if I want any results. Even typing her stage name in Korean is impossible since the spelling of her name in hangul is also the Korean word for child and typing that into Google gives you articles on children.

    When she performs she REALLY reminds me of BoA. When she's talking like this, I get more of a Taeyeon/Tiffany vibe off her. I don't know her yet, that's why I'm looking for comparisons and these are all people I really like. I can't wait to see what else she has for us.

    She might need to change her name in the future. It's really hard to find her through a search. I wonder how thought out this decision was.

    I have a sneaking suspicion they were trying to play off the success of another "I" with the search engines.
