They sound like names for brothers, but they are characters appearing in different TV dramas in Korea.

[INTERVIEW] Actor Jang Seo-won 2010/11/24, Source, My name isJang Seo-won. My real name is Kim Seul-gi. I started acting in the theater after I graduated college but my parents gave me this new name after realizing that my name doesn't suit my image as an actor. They saved my name in their cellphones under the name “Seo-won” but they just say "Hey" when they're calling me at home. I guess they're not used to it yet. I was born on November 1, 1982 as an only child. My blood type is B but a part of me is as timid as type A. Thankfully I've learned to become more laid-back after serving in the army,...More
[INTERVIEW] Actor Oh Chang-seok 2010/11/03, Source, My name isOh Chang-seok. My grandfather was the one who came up with my name. I was born on June 2, 1982. I have one older sister and one younger sister but that by no means meant that I had a girly childhood -- we rather grew up like guys working out, fighting and then having to write letters of apologies to each other. (laugh) I am currently majoring in industrial design at Sejong University. I became really burnt out after spending 15 hours a day working on projects for over a year and half. I grew a beard just like Robinson Crusoe, slept on a fold-out bed and washed my hair in the bathroom sink. (laugh) On top of that, design is something that you have to put every inch of yourself into and it becomes really tough if there's an error on your computer while you are working since all your work gets deleted. I used to look out the window watching people go to work while drinking a cup of coffee from the vending machine. I felt that I wouldn't be happy if I began working for a company because it is harder than being a student,...More
