Name and Linkages
I only know him as Choo Seonghoon (the Korean version of his name, which he uses in that country). Is there a way to make that name link to him? I don't have the skills to do that or I'd do it myself. CsikosLo (talk) 17:09, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Romanization of his name
After a correction, then a reversal of the correction, it seems we have a dilemma on the spelling of the English version of his name -- it also seems there are two versions in use.
It is my position that his name should be romanized as Chu Seong-hoon, based on Revised Romanization of Korean (q.v.). I prefer that system because it is the one used by the Korean government.
When I corrected to that, it was changed back to Chu Sung-hoon but I don't know what that's based on -- I can no romanization system that changes to that, but acknowledge that it is in use. Since editting back and forth is pointless, I would like to discussion here -- that's what this page is for, after all ;)
I do not intend to present myself as an expert on romanization of Korean, but I do go to Korea frequently and Korean is the second language in my family, so I am not entirely ignorant either.
- That'd be this I assume? I'd like to see him using it himself before adding it to the article as his actual nickname. (To note that he's actually being called it is another issue altogether IMO, and I don't think I'd have a problem with it since we have a reliable source). --aktsu (t / c) 11:16, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
- Because it is not his actual nickname in an MMA-sense, i.e. a nickname he use/endorse. It is something people call him, which since it's sourced is OK to mention, but it isn't a nickname he himself goes by -- which is what the nickname-field in the infobox is for. --aktsu (t / c) 23:41, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
I was under the impression that Akiyama had a fairly successful singing career in Japan/Korea, which was mentioned by Joe Rogan during the UFC 100 telecast. There's video of him on YouTube performing in front of large audiences. So I was surprised that there was no mention of it here.
