I edited out Choi as a generic Asian name reference. It is pretty much exclusively Korean, it is not Chinese, Japanese, or Southeast Asian, and the same holds true for the first name Hoo-Goh and the last name Paik as well. That and the parliament reference pretty much narrows it down to North or South Korea, and it is likely South Korea, given the fact that we know Mr. Paik is probably involved, and that North Korean representatives would not take national pride in dealing with a U.S. organization in car development (they are a very closed communist society that does not approve of Western support in their economy). --PandoraX 05:02, 14 June 2006 (PDT)
- actually, Choi is a Chinese last name. It is not exclusively Korean. There is an actress in Hong Kong called Ada Choi Siu-Fun. You can find her in google. I'm Chinese and so I know. There are Koreans with the first name Choi like Choi Si Won. -- Chatake 15:35, 21 June 2006 (PDT)
- You know, it's funny, I'm Chinese also (born there), just never heard of that last name ever... but you are right, just looked it up. :) I have lived in Korea several years, and I just tend to associate the name with Korea directly... though it's a moot point now that we know he is associated with Paik.
PS, someone needs to change the name of this article, since it should be Hoo-GoN Choi (spelling corrected through new password given for ROT). --PandoraX 18:49, 21 July 2006 (PDT)
