LOONA's Kim Lip says her agency created a stage name for her because her legal name is Kim Jung Eun

Kim Lip
LOONA's Kim Lip shared the story behind her stage name.

On November 20, LOONA and fromis_9 guested on JTBC's 'Idol Room.' The MCs pointed out that members of fromis_9 use their legal names while the members of LOONA have unique stage names. They were especially curious about the name Kim Lip, and asked, "Why is your name Kim Lip?"

 

Kim Lip replied, "My agency created it for me because I have a unique legal name." She brought laughter as she revealed, "My legal name is Kim Jung Eun (which sounds similar to Kim Jong Un)... So they created the stage name Kim Lip for me."

Which sounds similar to Kim Jong Un -> no AKP not sounds similar - it's exactly the same name 김정은 - Korean names can be written in some differed ways (way of writing Korean romanization - transcription)


은 can be written as UN and also as EUN (second one is most common used - compatible with Revised Romanization of Korean)

well they're legit ALL laughing at it on television now so I think its okay to find the comedy in the situation. Most of us get bullied for some dumb reason in grade school and laugh about it later in life. c'est la vie

literally no one knew of Kim Jong Un until 2011... she's clearly older than 7...
