Regarding the reason for changing her stage name, Yoobin explained, “From this activity, I decided to change from Binnie to my real name Yoobin, but the biggest reason is that I like to be called by my real name.”

Kim Tae-kyun asked, “Why didn’t you do it long ago? Isn’t ‘Binnie’ the ‘Bin’ in Yoobin?”, Yoobin said, “But the company said, ‘You have to live as Binnie’, as a rule. I had talked to my company about this for years. We discussed this for 3 years after much consideration”. She emphasized, “I feel like I’m gaining strength being called by this name”.
