Moon So Ri Talks About Being Made Fun Of Due To Her Unique Name
Moon So Ri shared a story about her name on MBC’s “Grannies” (literal title).
“Grannies” is a variety show about five celebrities— Jang Dong Yoon, Weki Meki’s Choi Yoojung, LOONA’s Yves, (G)I-DLE’s Yuqi, and WJSN’s Soobin—who pair up and learn Korean with grandmothers in Hamyang County in South Gyeongsang Province.
On the May 19 premiere, Moon So Ri made her first appearance on the show as the Korean teacher.
Writing her name on the board, she revealed, “When I was young, I got made fun of a lot for my name.” “Moon So Ri” literally translates to “door sound” in Korean, and the actress talked about how she was taunted for this in her younger years.
“In elementary school, kids would say ‘creaking’ or ‘rattling’ while opening and closing the door,” said Moon So Ri. “But it’s a precious name that was given to me by my parents.”
“Grannies” airs on Sundays at 6:45 p.m. KST. In the meantime, start watching Moon So Ri in “The Legend of the Blue Sea” below!
