These two names have been the trademark of Kim Seok-Jin since he first started going by these names when he was just a student in the Jamsil Adult School.
Sugaegon means flower in Korean, while jin means water in Korean. In fact, this middle name means flower in Japanese and jin means water in Chinese. In fact, many people in the north Korean country and in the south Korean country have chosen to adopt this middle name as their own personal names. Kim Seok-Jin is the better known name of Kim Seok-Jung but since Kim is also known as Kim Sang-Joon, many people in the north Korean country and in the south Korean country choose to call him by the name of his former stage name sugaegon.
