    Quick question, I was watching Lie to Me and I noticed that one of the characters, Chariman Chen was written as Jeon to follow the Korean Spelling. However, his character is Chinese and technically shouldn't necessarily follow this spelling (and his name isn't on the list).

    Since his character is a foreigner, can we add him to the Lie to Me list and keep the common Chinese spelling for his name?


    Sure, Cathy. :) PM me the names and I'll add them in. I only added the names that I'm sure of, hence, some names might not be in it. :)

    Hello, City Hunter is running around with 3 variations of a name.
    Right now, we have Seo Ryong Hak, Seo Yong Hak, and Seo Yeong Hak. If this can be cleared up quickly, that'd be great, because his name appears pretty often.

    --so i think we've chosen to go with Seo Yong Hak (서용학)

    "I Need Romance"

    선우인영 - Seonwu In Yeong



    Why did you write "Seonwu" and not "Seon Wu"? There are 2 characters there, why did you choose to write it like that?

    *강 - Should be Gang, but we'll use the common spelling.
    *우 - Should be U, but it'll look weird.
    *김 - Should be Gim, but we'll use the common spelling.
    *오 - Should be O, but it'll look weird.

    I Need Romance is a new drama so it'll be following the new KRS. Romance Town and the others were already airing with we decided to switch to the new system hence, they'll be exempted. :) All new shows starting now will be following the KRS.

    woah, I thought RT was following the guidelines and KRS system, and that we weren't going to use 'U' and 'O' and Gim etc.

    Are there KRS spelling 'rules' anywhere? It would be nice to see the new consonant and vowel spellings so we can reference them for the side characters that aren't listed here.

I'm currently awaiting confirmation for the surnames so let's just ignore that first. I'm getting Yeong but you wrote it as Jong? Is there a mistake somewhere?

    So SBS doesn't want people to navigate its pages apparently, but basically there are like 6 tabs near the top in hangul (that i can't read btw...) and it's the 5th one for the character names.
    =============
    Scratch that... didn't want to spam post so i'll just edit this one
    I think this will skip you straight to that page.

    Thanks em! couldn't figure out how to do that after spending 20 min. trying/failing to find the page w/ all the names on it :)

    ==============

    This might be more helpful... I'm not sure
