Super Junior’s Yesung’s mother changed her son’s real name from Kim Jongwoon to Kim Jonghoon and that happened without telling the singer himself!
On April 29th, Super Junior’s Leeteuk revealed through “Super Junior’s Kiss The Radio” that fellow member Yesung’s mother felt that since the word ‘Woon’ means clouds and clouds cast shadows sometimes, she did not like her son’s name Jongwoon. She then went to the name registrar’s office herself without telling Yesung and changed his name to Jonghoon. Leeteuk also stated that Yesung’s name has been modified in their family register as well.
Speaking about the time Yesung’s mother spoke about the matter to Yesung three months after changing the name, Leeteuk revealed that Yesung was shocked and his reaction was like “Mom, You did what?!”.
The “Here I Am” singer also spoke about the matter when he appeared in “Cultwo Show” and when the MC asked him whether he prefer his old name or new one, Yesung replied that he wants to make his mother happy, so he will choose Kim Jonghoon.
