The account name can be differentiated into 3 types:
First – simple account name using his/her name
The representative is Yoona, her Instagram ID is yoona__lim, we can easily know the account is hers.
Taeyeon’s ID is taeyeon_ss. The ss behind her name is the short form of SNSD.
EXID’s Hani added her year of birth together with her name –> ahnhani_92
Apink’s Bomi started to have Instagram and has named her account as ‘__yoonbomi__’ and Hayoung has changed her account name from ‘o_h_y_y’ to ‘_ohhayoung_’.
Second – Incorporate with English
BTOB’s leader Eunkwang ID ‘btob_silver_light’ is actually the literal translate from his Korean name ‘Eunkwang’. xD
Sungjae’s ID ‘yook_can_do_it’ is actually from ‘you can do it’ which he changed the word ‘you’ to his surname ‘yook’.
Third – Guess the name
Apink’s Namjoo ID ‘sarangdungy’, you might not able to figure out what it is as first but it actually means ‘cutie’ in Korean language.
Chorung’s ID ‘mulgokizay’ actually means ‘Pisces’, the romanization of 물고기 자리.
Fourth – the unique
f(x)’s Krystal ID, ‘vousmevoyez’ which means you can see me in French.
Luna’s ID ‘hermosavidaluna’ which includes her English name and also means ‘The pretty flower’ in Spanish.
Amber includes her nickname ‘Llama’ in her ID ‘ajol_llama’
