Clinton to be named "Han Hi-sook"

Why Han Hi-sook?

The surname “Han,” meaning Korea, is derived from the Korean pronunciation of the letter “H” in the name “Hillary.” With the conferment of the surname, Clinton will become the founder of the “Sejong Han” family. Secretary Clinton is the first “Han” from “Sejong-ro” or Sejong Street, the main street in central Seoul where the U.S. Embassy is located.

How stupid.
The name “Hi-sook” is a combination of two separate Chinese characters. “Hi” stands for “Shining,” while “Sook” is for “Clear.” “We believe that these are the attributes that have led to the appointment of Hillary Clinton as the 67th U.S. Secretary of State. Her clear vision and political insight will make important contributions in setting the stage for peace on the Korean Peninsula,” added Suh.

What the hell are these guys talking about? It's just an excuse to give her a Korean name. Nothing more. Stop fluffing.

I'm not surpirsed though. Of course she would get her very own Korean name. I'm just waiting for her to make kimchi in a hanbok in Insadong while eating ddeok bokki with chopsticks, which of course, will be so "spicy".
