The main rapper of SECRET faced a humiliating encounter for her stage name, Zinger.
The experience was revealed on Zinger’s Twitter on November 25. Apparently, while on the street, a man recognized her, so he came up to her and asked, “You are Zinger, right?” When she answered yes, the man’s male friend remarked, “What is Zinger? Isn’t that the name of a burger?”
What added to the confusion was there is indeed a burger named Zinger sold by Kentucky Fried Chicken.
She stated on her Twitter, “Today, I wonder about my decision to name myself Zinger.”
Netizens commented, “That is definitely a problem,” “I am suddenly craving a burger,” “Zinger is a pretty name. She meant well by it so I think it is a good stage name.”
Zinger explained in a 2010 episode of MBC’s “Quiz to Change The World” that she named herself out of admiration for Pussycat Doll’s Nicole Scherzinger.
