f(x)’s Amber Reveals Her Full Legal Name for the First Time


f(x)‘s Amber has become a hot discussion amongst netizens, as she revealed her real name on the October 12 episode of KBS‘s “Invincible Youth 2!”

The new G8 members headed to the Daebudo village on the west coast of Korea for their first ever meeting together. Considering the fact that they’re all comprised of members from all over the world, the older villagers had a hard time recognizing who was who. As such, the conversation turned to the topic of their names.

SNSD‘s Sunny, who uses an English name as her stage name, decided to go with her Korean name, Sunkyu.

Amber, on the other hand, revealed for the very first time that her name in Chinese characters (Hanja) is Yoo Il Woon (劉逸雲). As a Taiwanese-American, she revealed that her full, legal name was Amber Josephine Liu.

Upon hearing her confession, Lee Soo Geun commented, “It sounds like the name of a village hyung that knows how to use his fists.”

Amber added, “I also have a Korean name that my friends in the States used to call me, and it’s Eunyoung.”

In related news, the episode recorded 7% in viewer ratings, kicking off to a smooth start.
