Meanings Behind Names

Meanings Behind Names
by @yoochunsalove


A name to ponder in my room,

The connotation of JYJ poses out,

Friendly affairs with fans around the world,

What are the meanings behind their names?


A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold ~ Bible Quote



김재중 – Gim Jae Jung (Romanization)

金在中 – Jin Zai Zhong (Hanja / Mandarin)

영웅재중 – Youngwoong Jaejoong (Stage name)

英雄在中 – Yin Xiong Zai Zhong (Mandarin)

ジェジュン – Jejun (Japanese)

Hero (English)

Jaejoong is the eldest among JYJ members and is well-known for his legendary beauty which could kill fans due to his sexiness and fluorescent white complexion. He is born as Han Jaejoon but changed to Kim Jaejoong after adoption when he was a toddler. His character has always been claimed as a cool guy when you first see him but after you get to know him, you will automatically turn into him by his charm, love and friendliness. Yes, true enough many people have claimed that since the days of TVXQ! Nevertheless, we all love Jaejoong very much as he is irresistible.

Jaejoong means ‘existing in the middle’ – I always wonder does this meaning reflect his position as the centre of all stars. He is always positioned in the middle due to his aura and handsomeness as well as his character to lead others. Youngwoong was his stage name since debut. Although he hardly uses it now, fans still regard him as Youngwoong. Why is that so? This is because in English, Youngwoong means Hero. He has once explained about his name, Hero – his dream is to become a singer who can touch the many souls out there and it is his wish to become a hero in the music world. From his works, I can conclude that he has now achieved his dream and has created a history with his name, Hero in the Asian Music World.

Whether you wish to know him as Kim Jaejoong or Hero, he will still be a hero in my heart.  Jaejoong’s angelic voice which sings out the melody of songs and harmonizes the tune of  romantic ballads always touches and melts my heart. His voice has moved me to tears many times, thus Jaejoong remains my Prince of Beautiful Voice forever.


박유천 – Bak Yu Cheon (Romanization)

朴裕仟 – Piao Yu Qian (Hanja / Mandarin – Birth name)

믹키유천 – Micky Yoochun (Stage name)

秘奇有天 – Mi Qi You Tian (Mandarin / Stage name)

ユチョン – Yuchun (Japanese)

Micky (English)


Yoochun is the middle child in JYJ as his birthday lies between Jaejoong and Junsu. As you all know, I am a big fan of Yoochun. Thus, he has a special place in my heart. Yoochun is always
regarded as Chun’s face due to his 1001 facial expressions. He always poses many adorable
facial expressions that one cannot resist but fall for him more. Young kids constantly love him
because of his cuteness. If you ever hear Yoochun says ‘I Love You’, you will definitely be
flying to the heaven instantly as his manly voice combining with his expression creates a perfect

Yoochun in Korean means ‘plentiful and abundant (in thousands)’ – yup, he is a boy who is rich
in smiles. However, the Chinese version of Yoochun which is used on stage means ‘sky’. That
is the reason behind those claims by fans that he has made the sky a better place for birds to fly
due to his beautiful smile. Whenever the sky looks dark and cloudy, try to think of Yoochun and
it will then turn bright for you. Micky is his adopted name when he was living in Virginia, United
States of America. He left for USA with his family and has lived in there for about 4 years.
Nevertheless, Micky signifies ‘secret weapon’ – this causes him to be known as the secret
weapon in his group because of his amazing composition skill.

Yoochun is famous for his piano skill which has literary killed me ever since I fall for him –
that is his secret weapon to melt my heart. Some fans prefer to call him Micky while others
prefer Yoochun. Despite that, it is still the same person that I know of, Micky Yoochun or Park
Yoochun. He dreamt of singing since he was young and wanted to live in the music world of
which he is doing it now. Hence, he is my Prince of Music. Deep down in my heart, Yoochun is
always my Smiling Angel.


김준수 – Gim Junsu (Romanization)

金俊秀 – Jin Jun Xiu (Hanja / Mandarin)

시아준수 – Xiah Junsu (Stage name)

細亞俊秀 – Xi Ya Jun Xiu (Mandarin)

ジュンス – Junsu (Japanese)

Xiah (English)

Junsu is the baby in JYJ, the boy who is constantly being teased by Jaejoong or Yoochun
without realizing. Junsu has a very cheerful and happy personality that fans love him especially
his famous Kenya accent. He always likes to joke around and is the mood-maker in his group.
I love his ‘Oh my god sun!’, ‘Who’s that?’ and ‘Junsu time!’ endlessly – these phrases forever
crack me up no matter when I hear them. Junsu is also very enthusiastic in learning new things.

Junsu means ‘excellent in talent and wisdom’ – this meaning has truly been demonstrated in his
outstanding singing and dancing skills since debut. He is always considered as one of Korea’s
best idol singer, with more than perfect pitch and excellent emotions pouring out from his voice.
Xiah is his stage name which carries the meaning of Asia in Korean pronunciation. He said
that he would like to become a true musician not only in Korea but throughout the continent.
Undeniable, he has truly achieved his dream of becoming an artist in Asia and in other parts of
the world. He has also established himself as a fantastic musical actor recently – a born to sing

Xiah Junsu – a name that one cannot forget when listening to his voice. This is because his
recording and live performances have no difference; it is exactly the same or even better. Junsu
has always showed his wonderful professionalism in singing and performing – he has never
failed to impress me. ‘Perfect’ is a word which lies in Junsu’s heart all the times. Junsu will always remain my Prince of Perfectionist!
