RFA Members Korean Name Meanings (will edit in the future)
Once again, I looked through my requests to find the fastest one I can get done. This one seemed the fastest for now so I am answering this question first ^^;;;;
I should stop saying I will answer these questions the order they come in.
But in all honesty, I’m really sorry for the hold up in the requests, especially to those that sent them in a long time ago but I haven’t gotten back to. A lot of them takes so much time and I currently don’t have the time to actually get them done.
But this one seems really fun. I can finally put the 한자 (Chinese Characters) I learned from like preschool to high school to use ^^
You are definitely right when you say that names do have meanings. They all derive from the 한자 that I mentioned above! Depending on the character, the meaning to one’s name could be completely different! Currently, the only precise 한자 name I know from MysMess is Jumin’s because his was on his business card. I can guess what Yoosung and V’s are, but for now I’ll tell you guys what I think.
So, let’s start with mine since anon would like to know~
Seol Ryu (류설)
My name is very unique in the sense that my name itself is only one character long (외자). Most people in Korea tend to have two characters in their name.
I was wondering if I should reveal which Ryu I am, but I decided not to because it doesn’t really have a meaning? It is just a family name so I will just go on to explain my first name.
偰 맑을 설
My name means pure, clean, clear, things like that! I…seriously don’t live up to that LOL. Sometimes I wonder what my parents were thinking when they named me ^^;;; I still think about this. My brother always says that my name is so misleading.
Well, so is his.
Jk I love you.
I’ll explain because while I also thought about this for a while. I wanted to share this fun fact a long time ago, but I decided not to. Now, I have a reason to lol and that is, my brother actually dead ass has the same name as Zen.
Yep, my little bro is also Hyun Ryu. Except he’s 20, two centimeters taller than Zen, and a medical major not a musical actor =w=
ZEN/Hyun Ryu (류현)
Well, I don’t exactly know what his 한자 name is. But I can definitely share my brother’s. I’m not sure if it would be the same but let’s see lol.
炫 밝을 현
My brother’s name means, bright. If Zen also shares the same 한자 character then hey, that’s what his name would mean! I’m not sure which “Ryu” Zen is, but I think in my imagination all the time that we have the same character =w=
Sorry, Hyunnie. I didn’t mean to expose you but lol, too bad. He doesn’t even have a tumblr, what am I sorry about lols. Noona still loves you♡
Jumin Han (한주민)
So, Jumin has his name in 한자 if you see his business card in either the calling menu or the VIP package~
韓 한국 한, 나라 한 (우리 나라의 성의 하나)
主 임금 주, 주인 주
旻 하늘 민
Let’s start with Han! If I remember correctly there is only one Han for family name. Which is the same character for 대한민국 (South Korea). Correct me if I’m wrong. I’m an uneducated little walnut.
Next is his name, Ju Min.
임금 means wage (Ju) or 주인 means owner
하늘 means sky (Min)
I will be honest, I knew what the characters meant separately but lol, I don’t know what they are supposed to mean together. Am I just stupid? I think I have issues. Maybe it is related to how he is the company director of C&R. I don’t know. I’m pretty sure it means something like that ^3^
Yoosung Kim (김유성)
Same with the family name, I do not know which Kim he is, but I can definitely predict which Yoosung he is, and he gives it away when he refers to himself as a shooting star ^^
流 흐를 유
星 별 성
Exactly as it is written, 흐를 유 means, falling and 별 성 means star. His name is so pretty ;3; I remember this name a lot because my first crush’s name was 유성 with this exact 한자
don’t tell Hyun.
Jaehee Kang (강제희)
I wish Jaehee’s business card had her 한자 characters on it. I am curious to know because a friend of mine has the same name and I will just assume that she might have the same meaning? Who knows =w=
帝 임금 제
喜 기쁠 희
We see 임금 again for the “Jae” part of her name! (The same meaning in Jumin’s name meaning wages).The “hee” part of her name is 기쁠 희 which means happiness.
I feel like this would make sense since she works for C&R in the game.
V/Jihyun Kim (김지현)
This one I made a guess judging by V’s personality lolol.
至 이를 지
賢 어질 현
His name (that I just made up just from his personality in the game) virtually means 매우 어질고 착함. 더할 수 없이 어질고 슬기로움.
Orrr, in English, very gentle benevolent, wise.
As you can see, even though both Zen (and my bro lol) and V have the “hyun” character, they could have different meanings.
Lol, I had to bring my 한자 book from my shelf to try and make this and I think it worked out well. I really hope that this is the 한자 for his name because it fits him so well.
Okay, for 707 and Saeran….I am actually on a blank T3T I’m not sure how to go about their names. I’m sure if I look around enough I can make a name but it is a lot harder than I thought. I wish everyone was given their names just like Jumin =w= if I have enough time maaaaybe I will go through my 한자 textbook and try to assemble a name that I can base from their personality, but I tried thinking for now and nothing is coming…
Saeyoung and Saeran fans, Seol is sorry ㅠㅠ
I will come back in the future and edit this post. 세영 and 세란 is kinda hard for me…if there are other people out their who have some sort of 한자 assembled for their names, please let me know. I would love to know because I am at a loss TwT
For now, I’ll go bye bye~
See you next post!
