this whole time I thought people saying "myno" was wrong... I apologize to everyone I've corrected
I'm guilt of a couple of these >.< Great card!
I feel like I've been lied to my whole life. Hahaha. Thanks for showing us the correct pronunciations! :)
@moonstals Yes, his real name is 송민호 but his rapper name is pronounced 마이노, you can listen to him say it specifically clear in Born Hater^^
