Sulli Reveals The Interesting Story Behind Her Stage Name

How did she go from Choi Jin Ri to Sulli?

Sulli continued her appearance on Reply Night in the June 28th episode. She revealed the interesting story about how she got her stage name.

My real name is Choi Jin Ri. But right before I debuted as a child actress, a reporter told me my name sounded too Christian so people of other religions might not like it. He said it would be good to use a different name. He suggested ‘Sul’ for the Chinese character for snow and ‘Li’ from the Chinese character from pear flower.

– Sulli

Sulli ended up supporting this idea out of politeness and suddenly she had become Sulli overnight which she struggled to get used to. She says she is grateful now though and likes her name.
