* UsefulNotes/{{Seoul}} was almost going to be renamed to 'Unam' after a prominent scholar pointed out that since the name literally means 'capital city', it needs to be changed. The name in question, 'Unam', was an [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_name art name]] or pseudonym of the first president of UsefulNotes/{{South Korea}}, [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syngman_Rhee Syngman Rhee]] who was a liberator turned dictator. His cronies thought it was a great idea, but the scholar who proposed a name change and the opposition in the assembly fought hard to oppose the name change, until the dictator himself thought that it was a bit too much.
