Does only going by one's first name/given name still count as a stage name? I wouldn't think so but the entry re: Korean musicians implies it does so I'm not sure anymore.

  • Practically every K-Pop singer. If they don't choose a cool stage name, they will go by their given name only. In Korean you are NEVER called by your given name, unless your are foreign or possibly by your close family. So, 'Hong Gil Dong' would be called as 'Hong Gil Dong,' but if he was a singer he would just be 'Gil Dong' unless he chose a different stage name.

Seems retarded to list people just for using their middle names (Vinnie Paul instead of Vinnie Abbott). It's hardly a stage name if your birth certificate says it's your given name.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

How well does it match the trope?
