I pronounced it as Tzu-you bc it’s a pretty self explanatory name? But I see that when she’s outside of Korea (but not in Taiwan or China) she seems a little bit conflicted on which name to use? She always uses her Korean name anyways :ty-lol:

I still say Tzu-you bc that’s the romanization of her name in Chinese/Taiwanese, but my friends say her Korean name so I say her Korean name too :ty-err:

Either way is technically correct tho :ty-aye:

Tell me Honestly.... HONESTLY..

How did you pronounce Tzuyu's name when you first saw/read it? Cause I'm pretty sure I failed hard.

I pronounced it as 'TZU - YOU' (My friends were even making fun of me saying that it sounds like 'Toyo' (soy sauce in tagalog) lol)

Don't get me wrong, I know how to read hangul, I was just doubting myself cause the English romanization is different from it's Hangul form.

In a few hours, I started pronouncing it as 'Chewy' and another few more hours finally! 'Jjeuwi'

 

It was such an adventure just trying to learn how to pronounce a name.

And then I heard someone say about Tzuyu's Pinyin and how you actually read it.. then I got confused again OTL

 

Then I found this on OH:

Taiwanese: Pronounced Zu-yu

 

Chinese Characters/Mandarin: Pronounced Zi-yu

 

Hangul: Pronounced like Joo - Hee

 

Apparently... Chewy/Joohee is her nickname... wow... -a moment o realization-

THANKS! YOU answer my questions about her namegiphy.gif

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in korean her 2 letters is pronounced something along the lines of: Tzu-Vi, but together everyone always makes it sound like Chewy.

I find listening to google translate helpful https://translate.google.co.uk/#auto/en/쯔위

If you use the korean dictionary or whatever the j sound should be more prominent so her name is pronounced juwee rather than chewy

or her chinese name which is easier to pronounce 'chou zi yu'
