Some fans send presents and letters to their favorite stars, shouting
their names and wishing they could get a closer look at them. But
little they may know about the special meanings to the names of their
favorite stars hold.

"Cover Story", a celebrity gossip program on the "Story On' channel,
offered fans the true story hidden behind the names of celebrities last
Thursday.

Gong Yoo, heartthrob of the hit drama "Coffee Prince" created his name
by putting together the last names of his parents, Gong and Yoo. Having
a name that represents his parents allowed him to work twice as hard
and take responsibility for his works.

Park Jin-young, who recently released a new album and the former
producer of Rain was responsible of the world star's stage name.
Coincidence or not, every time they recorded his songs, it began to

Park Jin-young, who recently released a new album and the former
producer of Rain was responsible of the world star's stage name.
Coincidence or not, every time they recorded his songs, it began to
rain. From that day, Park playfully called him Rain, and later on, it became his stage name.

Park Hwa-yobi is also one of the stars who has a stage name related to
the rainy weather. Her real name is Park Mi-yeong and she was thinking
of a stage name that could represent the day she was born, Tuesday, or
Hwa-yo-il in Korean. She looked out the window and the moment she
realized it was raining, she added Hwa-yo and Bi (rain in Korean)
together, creating her stage name Park Hwa-yobi.

Some stars are simply born with unique names. Seong Ji-roo,
an actor well known for his humorous supporting roles, got his name
even before he was born. When his father was waiting for his mother to
deliver him, it took a long time. His father, impatiently waiting for
the newborn child complained that the baby was taking such a 'tedious'
time. Thus, Ji-roo, which literally means tedious in Korean, became the
actor's name.

Other incidents were also aired in the program. Actors Joo Jin-mo and Jang Hyeok borrowed their managers' names while Hyeon Bin, Choi Ji-woo and Song Seung-heon changed their screen names from Kim Tae-pyeong, Choi Mi-hyang and Song Seong-bok.
