Shim Yi-young revealed what her name meant.
She posted in QTV "Ranking Woman" and said she's using a fake name.
She said, "My name isn't real. It's a combination of Sim Eun-ja and Lee Yeong-ae to become a great actress like them". Her real name is Kim Jin-ah and started being Shim Yi-young in 2006.
However, a shaman advised her to change her name as there was risk of being defeated by evil or being stopped by it.
