CLC’s Sorn Shares Why She Uses Another Name When Visiting The Hospital
On Jan. 30, CLC was the special guest for MBC “Weekly Idol”.
The girls came back with ‘No’ and if you have yet to check out their new song, make sure to watch their music video below.
Aside from sharing what they have been up to since their last comeback, member Sorn also shared an interesting story of her.
She explained that when she visits the hospital, she has to use another name, Kim SoEun, rather than Sorn. To that, the MCs were confused by her decision.
In Korea, nurses tend to call the patients by their name with the term ‘nim’ attached at the end to show respect. If Sorn were to use her real name, the nurses would call her ‘Sorn-nim’.
That actually means ‘customer/guest’ which is a term that is not used in a hospital environment but rather in restaurants or even shopping malls.
As such, Sorn found it awkward and the other patients would look at her. In the end, she had decided to go with the name Kim SoEun when she has to visit the hospital.
