omg! me too!!! actually i can't pronounce most of the Super Junior's
members name. i feel like a moron. haha.


I can actually pronounce most of them... they all basically sound like they're spelled (except Siwon, it's more of a SHIwon haha... and Leeteuk, I can't pronounce his name either hahaha)... But other than that... I can pronounce them fine! XD

but Kyu's my favorite, and I can't pronounce his name to save my life, it makes it very difficult to talk about him haha

with them and talked about SNSD instead. haha.

I'll try!

okay! excluding Leeteuk & Kyuhyun... and Kibum because I have no clue how to pronounce his name either!

Shindong: Shin-Dong (easiest! haha)
Donghae: Dong-Hey (easy too XD)
Siwon: Shi-won
Kangin: Ka-ngin (the ngin should be really really soft)
Yesung: Yeh-Sung (I think the ng is supposed to be soft and more nnn like XD haha)
Hangeng: Hahn-gung (ish. hahaha, not exactly positive on that one!)
Sungmin: Sunhg-meen (easy! yay!)
Heechul: Hee-Chul (but the "l" in Chul is more of a R with a little L mixed in hahahaha)
Ryeowook: Rey-uh-ook (not positive on this one either. I'M NOT KOREANNNN! lmao)
Eunhyuk: uhn-yhuk (I can say it properly, I'm not sure if I spelled it out right XD)


k. so, don't take my word for any of these! I started getting into SJ earlier this year and I've watched a lot of shows with them, and my friend has helped me with the pronunciation before, but uhhh... I know next to nothing about the Korean language LMAO.
I'm better with Japanese rofl.

Yaoi in Japanese is written as やおい in hiragana.
や = ya, お = o, い = i.
So the pronounciation would be YAH-O-EE. I think of it like YAH-OI.
Most westerners say it like YAU-EE which really annoys me >__>

In Japan, Ulquiorra is pronounced like OO-RU-KI-O-RA.
ウルキオラ -> U ru ki o ra



I want to know how Nguyen is pronounced ._.
