Goldstar[edit]

Is Lucky Group the same company as Goldstar who of which manufactured VCRs and Video equipment in the past? I have a photo of an example of a Goldstar product I submitted to Wikipedia. Image:Composite monitor.JPG --SuperDude 04:23, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Yes. Goldstar is now LG Electronics. --Puzzlet Chung 09:39, 2 May 2005 (UTC)

Requested move to LG Group[edit]

This conglomerate's official name is "LG" and not Lucky Group. LG is not an abbreviation of "Lucky Group", so "LG Group" does not recall RAS syndrome. :) --Puzzlet Chung 09:37, 2 May 2005 (UTC)

I don't think that the article should be at LG Group, since that's not the name of the conglomerate. Should it be LG (conglomerate) or is there a better '(xxx)' to disambiguate the page with? Lachatdelarue (talk) 14:48, 2 May 2005 (UTC)
I only glanced at LG's website, and in my brief look I didn't see the word 'Group' anywhere. I guess I didn't look enough. Sorry. Lachatdelarue (talk) 03:38, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. From LG's website - The new Corporate Identity was launched including the change of the group name from Lucky-Goldstar to LG in 1995. [1], As LG is not an acronym, there is no full name for LG. On renaming the Group, we considered 'LG' to be the most appropriate for a new Group name that could integrate different images of two main streams of the Group's businesses, the Chemicals led by 'Lucky' and the Electronics & Telecommunications led by 'Goldstar,' while including various brand images of other business fields.

From what I've heard LG is Lucky-Gumsung in korean, anyone know something about that?

금성 (transliterated Geumseong, possibly Gumsung in the past) translates literally as 'Gold star' but is the Korean name of the planet Venus. Compare 삼성 (Samsung) - 'Three stars'. However, I haven't seen any evidence the company ever referred to itself in this way. Hypnotist uk 08:44, 11 August 2005 (UTC)

Yes, LG is Lucky Geumsung in Korea. Geumsung means gold star in English, and both Lucky Geumsung and Lucky Goldstar can be shortened to LG, so i guess they decided to use goldstar too.

Fourth-largest chaebol?[edit]

This article claims LG "is the fourth-largest chaebol in South Korea" while the Chaebol page lists LG as having third largest revenue. Neither page has a reference directly supporting these claims so it is hard to determine which of, or when, these claims are correct. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kelly F Thomas (talkcontribs) 04:40, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
