Pann: Idols whose real names are as famous as their stage names

1. [+151, -17] Kyungsoo sounds more familiar than DO ㅠㅠㅠ

2. [+150, -28] Jongdae and Joonmyun ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+108, -12] Kwon Jiyong and Jung Soojung are the most famous ones

4. [+53, -26] Non-fans would also know Kwon Jiyong, Jung Soojung, and Kim Myungsoo

5. [+47, -1] I've heard of Min Yoongi but I've never heard of Rapmon's real name

6. [+41, -10] Min Yoongi is well-known but Min Suga is more famous ㅋㅋ Kids call him Min Suga

7. [+38, -1] Non-fans don't know their names except Kwon Jiyong and Jung Soojung

8. [+37, -18] Kim Taehyung!

9. [+30, -12] I don't agree that people know Min Yoongi and Kim Namjoon. Jung Soojung is well-known for sure.

10. [+26, -3] I think Kwon Jiyong, Jung Soojung, and Woo Jiho are known

11. [+23, -4] Not Suga, Rapmon, and Joy

12. [+21, -1] Not BTS. I don't even know their stage names. Only idol fans and their fans know their names.

13. [+17, -2] Really agree with Cha Hakyeon ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Sometimes, I even forget his stage name ㅋㅋ

14. [+13, -1] Only fans know those names except Kwon Jiyong. Do Kyungsoo is known a bit because he introduces himself as Do Kyungsoo when he acts. I think people could also know Choi Jinri because it's a unique name. Probably Jung Soojung, too. But the rest of them aren't known to non-fans.

15. [+12, -0] I'm not a fan but I know that Taeyang's real name is Dong Youngbae ㅋㅋㅋㅋ It sounds so unique and countrified.
