GFriend's Umji says she initially disliked her stage name

During the broadcast "Cultwo Show", the GFRIEND members introduced themselves using their real names. Yuju commented, “I’ve never introduced myself like this before, so now that we’re doing it on the radio with our real names, it feels odd.”

Umji revealed, “My real name is Kim Ye Won. I initially disliked the stage name ‘Umji,’ so there was a time when I thought that it’d be nice if I promoted with a different name. I like it now, though.”

She continued, “I disliked [the name Umji] so much that I thought I should think of other names. When I think about them now, however, it’s funny. There were names like Yeon Doo and Ah Rang.”

Last month, Chris joined journalists and others to discuss the origins of kpop, ahead of a special 50-piece symphony orchestra performance of various kpop songs the following day at Lincoln Center in NYC.

(Before the symphony, he gave another presentation but I'm not sure if it was filmed/have been unable to locate any videos of it.)

Omona, are you as entranced by the intellectual side of kpop, as much as the music? Or do you take the bops and leave the rest?
