K-Pop Idols' Unique & Clever Instagram Usernames

misc.
K-Pop idols often tend to utilize their first and last names as an easy way to keep their handles on social media consistent. But every so often, we have an idol that chooses something a little more out-of-the-blue! From usernames in other languages to seemingly meaningless and random keysmashes, these 9 K-Pop Instagram handles are some of the most unique:


9. f(x) Luna - IG: @hermosavidaluna


f(x)'s Luna opted for a less traditional username on Instagram by using Spanish! Hermosa Vida means "Beautiful Life" so her Instagram handle actually means "Beautiful Life Luna!"

8. SHINee Onew - IG: @dlstmxkakwldrl 


On the surface, SHINee Onew's Instagram username looks like a random keysmash, however, when this letter combo is typed into a Korean hangul keyboard, you get the hangul (인스타마징기) equivalent of "Insta Majinki". Majinki can be interpreted as either "My Jinki (One's Korean name)" or Mazinger, the mecha from manga/anime. Onew also has a one-of-a-kind Twitter username (@skehehdanfdldi) which, when typed into a Hangul keyboard, means "I, too, am an animal."

7. IU - IG: @dlwlrma 


IU's username is similar to Onew's in the sense that it looks like jumbled lettering until typed into a Korean hangul keyboard. IU's real name is Lee Ji Eun and in Korean, 'eun' means silver. On 'Knowing Brother,' IU explained her nickname was Lee Ji Geum because 'geum' means gold in Korean. dlwlrma = Lee Ji Geum typed into a Korean keyboard!

6. BTOB Sungjae -  IG: @yook_can_do_it


Sungjae spent one day changing his handle about 7 times in a row before finally settling on @yook_can_do_it. We just love the witty use of his surname instead of 'you'.

5. Seventeen Seungkwan - IG: @pledis_boos 


The CEO of Pledis has an Instagram account under @pledis_boss, so naturally, Boo Seungkwan had to abridge his to be @pledis_boos. What a smartie!

4. A Pink Chorong - IG: @mulgokizary 


On a more astrological note, Chorong from A Pink opted for not another language, but just Hangul romanization being written in English. Chorong is a Pisces, and that's exactly what "mulgokizary" means in Korean! 

3. Kim Yongguk - IG: catsgoesmeow_ 


Kim Yongguk loves cats so much he made his Instagram username @catsgoesmeow_. Although grammatically incorrect (it should be catsgomeow), it shows his love for cats. His obsession goes so deep that he made the photographs of his cats into the photo cards for his solo album!

2. Girls' Generation Sooyoung - IG(formerly): @hotsootuff 



Though Sooyoung's username on Instagram has been changed to @sooyoungchoi now, that doesn't mean she didn't have one of the cutest and funniest usernames before! Prior to being @sooyoungchoi, our lovely Sooyoung was none other than @hotsootuff. We loved her silly username that totally reflects on her playful personality.

1. Jay Park - IG: @jparkitrighthere 


The most Jay Park thing you could do? Use "JParkItRightHere" as a username.

but you crave for attention posting comments saying that you feel superior to people who post photos, let people do what they want to do, lame.

What's lame is when someone doesn't know how to use FULL STOPS in their comment.
