Stunted Wookie which Public office allowed your family name to be printed in English? The two that we have visited, one in Mokdong and the other in Eunpyeong-gu have both stated that the family name can only be written in Korean.

Apparently this law is recent as the powers that be took offense at some religious folk taking extremely long names of 7 or 8 syllables...My god how dare they!
