On the August 24 installment of 'Radio Star,' Oh My Girl's YooA relayed an interesting back story regarding her stage name.

She revealed on the show that her real name is Yoo Si Ah and that she had wanted to promote under her real name.  However, she changed her mind because it overlapped with the name of JYJ's Junsu (who goes by XIA, pronounced the same way).


She said, "My agency CEO told me that I would get a lot of hate if I promoted as Si Ah." Well, YooA is a cute name for you!

  1. Junsu (XIA)

pink_oracle sarangkim9 Sunday, April 23, 2017

Nope, she legally changed it to Yoo Si-a.

even jun k changed his name from junsu .so this is understandable if you want to be known on your own right.

ketisanmo Wednesday, August 24, 2016

well, too bad cos Junsu is as Xia is already a well understood name for him. He is too popular and years ahead of her as her sunbae,Respect is the word. no need to make such a fuss lol

_CLeO ketisanmo Thursday, August 25, 2016

How is she making a fuss?

pink_oracle ketisanmo Friday, August 26, 2016

She didn't change her name becuase Xia is the only fucker in the world who can have that name. She changed it becuase of bat-shit crazy morons like you.

_CLeO pink_oracle Saturday, August 27, 2016

Oh so ketisanmo was delivering her comment in a negative view. I totally agree with your comment pink_oracle :D

I mean what can you do when netizens bitch about everything. YooA is a cute name for her anyways. I'm glad she stuck with it.

federick Wednesday, August 24, 2016

because knetizens are crazy

freysan Wednesday, August 24, 2016

so XIA is pronounced as "shee-ah"?? all these time I was pronouncing it as "sha" like I literally call him "Sha Junsu".. O___O

kramblings freysan Friday, August 26, 2016

yupp it's Shee-ah, previously when he was in TVXQ he was Xiah JunSu but because SM, he removed the H but kept the name ^^

zebbasss freysan Tuesday, August 30, 2016

Yep, it pronounced as "shee-ah", like the "sia" in "Asia".

xia_shia_sia_zia Wednesday, August 24, 2016

I don't see point in blaming fans for something that would've been happening in the present or future if she kept her name because she didn't so that story doesn't even have beginning let alone plot or ending. As for hate she would've probably got it if she made it big but that would be one of reasons to netizens served on golden plate and they would and will hate her as both Siah or Yooa because they don't like success that is not their own. Fans are other story and you have this and that but born haters are whole different level.

LordLiar18 Wednesday, August 24, 2016

But Si ah and Xia aren't written the same way right? If people want to search for one of them, they'd find the right person imo. Her company is being a bit too cautious on this... Anyway, YooA is such a cute name too. :)

starempress LordLiar18 Wednesday, August 24, 2016

ZE:A had a lot of trouble when they first debuted because it sounded a lot like Brown Eyed Girls JeA and were forced to change the pronunciation. If an ee group has to change the name, a single person dropping a syllable should be reasonable

NORM LordLiar18 Wednesday, August 24, 2016

in Korean/hangul they are written the same way. Its only in english u'd find the right one :)

LordLiar18 NORM Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Ah... I didn't know this... I thought the characters would be different as they are translated differently in English. My bad! Thanks for the clarification :)

Gaming_Haku LordLiar18 Wednesday, August 24, 2016

shut it. u non-korean. u still don't understand how dire this thing is in Korean.

LordLiar18 Gaming_Haku Thursday, August 25, 2016

Indeed, i'm not Korean and so what? That's why, i really appreciated Norm's explanation. There's no need to be so unpleasant...

junxxmin Wednesday, August 24, 2016

I don't think she'd get hated just for having a similar name but I think Xia Junsu is so popular that if people were to search Siah on korean sites Junsu's info would come up but yooah is a really cute name XD

chubbyabbyyy junxxmin Wednesday, August 24, 2016

it's different if you type in english. However, the pronunciation is the same in korean, so if you type in korean, they are the same.

junxxmin chubbyabbyyy Sunday, August 28, 2016

yes, that's what I was saying XD

selenajyp Wednesday, August 24, 2016

well RaNia have a member named XIA , and i don't think she faced any problems with .

cassiecassie selenajyp Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Rania is legit one of my most fav groups. But honestly regarding ur point... I think it's because nobody knows her.

MufffleCake cassiecassie Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Exactly, If she is become famous, then you know, she will get a new hater from that fan base.
