While Hoya's real name is Lee Ho Won, he admitted to Kang Ho Dong that Ho Won was not the name first given to him when he was born. Rather, his birth name used to be Lee Ho Dong! Hoya said this was his first time ever disclosing this fact.
Upon hearing this, Kang Ho Dong initially got excited and kept affectionately calling him Ho Dong, but Hoya then revealed that he changed this name because of Kang Ho Dong.
Hoya said, "When I was nine, your comedy sketch 'Shower' in which you act stupid was so popular then that my friends would make fun of me. I was always crying so my parents changed my name for me." He revealed he had cried for about two months!
Although this news initially saddened Kang Ho Dong, he quickly became fascinated by this revelation!
