Descendants of the Sun effect: Song Joong-ki’s Yoo Si-jin could become a popular baby name
Descendants of the Sun star Song Joong-ki is becoming a phenomenon in Asia after the grand success of the Korean drama. Perhaps, his name in the drama could soon become a popular baby name.
K-pop icon Bae Suzy has given birth to a new-popular baby name: Seo Yeon. It happens to be one of the most popular names given by South Korean parents to their baby girls in the present time. AllKPop reasoned that the name is being chosen by many parents because of the fame of drama Architecture 101. Seo Yeon is the character played by Suzy Bae in the drama.
According to SBS News, there are a number of names for baby boys and girls are still popular for decades in South Korea: they are Jung Hoon and Eun Joo in the 70s; Ji Hoon and Ji Hye in the 80s; and Ji Hoon and Yoo Jin in the 90s. Korean drama has had such a strong influence on culture.
With this being the case, Yoo Si-jin could most probably become a popular baby name for boys in the next few years, thanks to the character played by the boy-faced candy Song Joong-ki in the super-hit Korean drama Descendants of the Sun that created waves across Asia.
Meanwhile, the Chinese media reported on Song Joong-ki’s impressive Chinese skills. Joong-ki introduced himself: “Hello, everyone. I am Song Joong-ki. I am happy to be here with you guys today,” all in Chinese. It was also reported that the star carried out the event without much language difficulty, thanks to his brother who has studied in Beijing for eight years and made him to learn Chinese.
