How did Dohyun became Doh
I used to go by Dohyun Lee. I tried to explain how “hyun” part of my name sounds like to my friends in Cuba, Missouri in 2005 when I first moved to the States but it didn’t pan out the way I wanted to. I got [Do-haan], [Do-hunn], and even [Do-ken]. (Ken...don’t ask me how) That’s why I decided to drop the second half of my first name, Hyun.
And you might say, “Shouldn’t your name be Do then?” It should be and it was. But after hearing 20 Starbucks saying “Latte for Duu?” I decided to add a h after Do to make y’alls’ lives easier. DOH! (Better branding too ;))
