Sinite Sooyoung


“A flowered glorious young grass plant on a high mountain.”
Choi Soo-young

What’s in Choi Soo-young’s name? There seems to be a prophecy in the constituent Hanja glyphs of her name.
Choi Soo-young’s Hangul name is [최수영] and her Hanja name is [崔秀榮].

Meanings of the characters in Choi Soo-young’s name:

  1. 崔 “Choi”: High mountain/precipitous (Ancient meaning: High and Rocky)
  2. 秀 “Soo”: To bloom/outstanding/elegant/graceful/superior (Ancient meaning: To flower)
  3. 榮 “Young”: Glory/honour (Ancient meaning: “Lord”)

The prophecy arises when the Hanja characters are decomposed into it’s constituent parts.

Decomposition of [崔]: ⿱山隹 (“Mountain” and “Bird” (specifically a sparrow))
Decomposition of [秀]: ⿱禾乃 (“Grain” and “Mount Sinai”)
Decomposition of [榮]: ⿱⿱炏冖木 (The flames (炏) represent the cities Sodom and Gomorrah. The “roof” (冖) represents a house. The “tree” (木) most likely represents Lot.)

Sooyoung’s “stage name” hanja (as a singer and actress) differs from the birth name hanja (it’s “秀英” instead of “秀榮”). The prophecy does not work on the stage name.

Even through there are multiple people whose names bear the characters “秀” and/or “榮” (“崔” is the surname glyph), the prophecy only works for Choi Soo-young, specifically the one born on February 10, 1990. Sooyoung’s resident registration number (RRN) is 900210-2??????.

The prophecy in Choi Soo-young’s name embeds parts of the biblical stories of Lot, Moses and Job.

“炏” are the two fires that make up the destroyed cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Lot (木) was protected (冖) by God while the cities (炏) were destroyed. Moses would then collect grain (禾) at Mount Sinai (乃). Finally, Job sees a sparrow (隹) sitting on the summit of a high mountain (山).
