    The list so far for Myung Gol The Spy (btw we might want to change the name in the title to KRS)

    韩明月 = 한명월 = Han Myeong Wol
    姜于 = 강우 = Gang U
    朱仁雅 = 주인아 = Ju In A
    李荣书 = 이영서 = Lee Yeong Seo
    金大奎= 김대규 = Gim Dae Gyu
    赵静恩 = 조정은 = Jo Jeong Eun
    大康 =대강= Dae Gang
    妙香山 = 묘향산 = Myo Hyang San

    (thanks emily~)


    Edited by milkyway, 02:43 PM - 12 July 2011: nami, I have not included these names because I haven't found their hangeul. Some of the Chinese characters used are wrong (sometimes, in my experience) so to prevent inconsistencies, until I find the Hangeul for them, I won't add them in. yet. :)

    Milky, whenever you have free time, could you please do the list for NTOG. There are names like Oh Hwa Ran and Ah Da Mo and I'm not sure if we're going krs for those surnames. It's getting somewhat confusing now. THANK YOU!

    Hi~ I'm writing to encourage the Powers That Be here to re-evaluate the decision to spell 이 as “Lee Sin” for You've Fallen for Me / Heartstrings. I understand the desire to conform to KRS spellings as much as possible-- but sometimes, it just doesn't make sense to do so. Romanizing 신 as “Sin”, rather than “Shin”, is problematic for several reasons.

    To most English speakers, “sin” is a word with a strong negative connotation (a violation of religious or moral law, or something deplorable). Most native English speakers have never seen “Sin” being used as a name, so every time we see “Sin”, we automatically think of the “immoral act” meaning. You've Fallen for Me / Heartstrings is the first drama I've watched that is using the “Sin” spelling, and I'm finding it very distracting. Others may even find it confusing. (Also, “Shin” is closer to what we hear than “Sin”.)

    According to the KRS, 김 should be “Gim” and 이 should be “I”, but in reality, nearly everyone uses “Kim” and “Lee” (or “Yi”) instead. Similarly, I think that the use of "Shin" for 신 is so widespread that it ought to be adopted as the standard spelling. For this specific character, the overwhelming majority of sites (including Wikipedia) are using “Lee Shin”. Even at DSS, I noticed that for CYHMH, it was decided to spell 신애 as “Shin Ae”.

    Thanks for listening-- and for all that you do here at DSS!

    I have received PMs about the KRS issue because of a character in Heartstrings.

    I will address this issue as soon as I'm done with 'real life' matters... BUT to give you a quick reply (and I've answered this in the PMs) - I am very sorry but the CTS will continue using the KRS/RKRS spelling. We have a valid reason for doing this and I will explain it as soon as I find time.

    For Spy Myungwol, I noticed that the spelling for one of the actors are wrong. It should be Kang Woo INSTEAD OF GANG U. Can anyone correct the spelling? Its funny when you try to pronounce Gang U. Thanks

    Gang U is the correct spelling. Some time at the end of May, the CTS Team changed to KRS. So all names in the dramas that have followed are spelled using KRS. Now to quote WaGGy from the post before yours:

    I am very sorry but the CTS will continue using the KRS/RKRS spelling. We have a valid reason for doing this

    For J-Dramas, there shouldn't be any problem with their romanisation.


    Also, are there any J-drama cts guides? References? (On topics as to, adding 'kun, san, etc'


    There are currently no CTS Guides for J-Dramas (But if DSS is to be subbing J-Dramas more frequently in the future, having guidelines seem to be a good idea :) ). However I do believe that -kun and -san are generally not included into the subtitles.

    Hiya just wanna add on for the list of characters for "My Love By My Side":

    Bong Yong Hoon
    Jo Yoon Jung
    Go Jeong Ja

    These are what's been used for the earlier eps but I've noticed clahses in the later eps. I'm unable to find the korean characters so I'm not sure which is the correct romanizaton.
