A list of idol groups and members and what could have become their official stage names is attracting much attention among Korean netizens.
Recently on an online community site, a posting was made with the title "Idols' Original Stage Names".
Included was a list of idol groups and members and their amusing, and some downright hilarious, stage names that they could have made famous.
Super Junior's Leeteuk was close to becoming Kang Soo, as it is close to his birth name, Park Jungsoo. Fellow member Shindong almost became Udon, while Kangin could have been Woongdam (gallbladder of a bear), and Kyuhyun Gwee-Hyun (distinguished person).
TVXQ was considered to be named Oh Jak Yook Boo (Internal Organs), while Big Bang almost was named Diamond. T.O.P was originally going to be named Mark, Daesung Big Castle, Seungri Sonic, and Taeyang Taekwon. (Taekwon was Taeyang's stage name during GDYB days.)
Wonder Girls were almost named LC (Ladies Club)- Sunye was going to be Sunny, Sohee IC, Yenny Silver, Sunmi Berry, and now 4minute member HyunA who used to promote with Wonder Girls was going to be Mint. The girls even had a song they recorded under these names, but the name of a popular documentary they filmed before their debut was titled Wonder Girls, and they went with that name.
Shinhwa member Jun Jin was going to be Lee Gi Go (which translates to "winning" in Korean), and Minwoo was going to be either Parang (Blue) or Taeyang.
Netizens who came across the information exploded into laughs as they wrote, "IC is truly hilarious", "I heard Diamond was G-Dragon's idea", "Lee Min Woo could have been Taeyang!" and more.
