The Koreans go family name first, Dopey Sinatra9196. So Kim is the family name, Jong Eun (prob'ly pronounced something like Yun is his personal name. Were I Korean, I would style myself Wife Tray Ling, and everyone except my immediate family and childhood friends would call me Mrs. Wife. Come to think of it, only my immediate family and childhood friends would even know my personal name -- manners are different over there.

#5 a Korean named Kim? What next? A Vietnamese named Nguyen? Where does the madness stop, Mr. Chin?

#6 Many of the Vietnamese refugees that made it safely gave their surname as 'Nguyen' to officials.

Regardless of what their last name was.
