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.

"Taeyang get that out of your mouth! Dirt isn't food!""Awww Woozi's fussy... wanna nap?... let's go nap""Yay! We finally got Leeteuk to poop in the toilet on his own!""Oh no, Tzuyu's got a diaper rash.""Jaebeom come here, you got cookie crumbs on your face. *licks finger and proceeds to wipe his face down*""Chaerin, hate isn't a nice word now go in the corner and think about what you did!"

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

I had one class mate with the same name as me and it felt so weird 😐 And she sat I front of me 😔 (Dang 3 ppl ? Must have been a struggle)

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.
