Do you know who’s who?

We have seen many artists who share the same name gain the spotlight in the Korean entertainment industry. Block B’s B-bomb shares the exact surname as BtoB’s Lee Min Hyuk, and both also have the same given name as CNBLUE’s Kang Min Hyuk.

It is no surprise to see same-gender idols with the same name, but are you also aware that they are many opposite-gender Korean celebrities who share an exact given name as well?
