But did you know what is the original meaning of ‘Samsung’? Since we don’t know Korean, that meaning was not obvious, and it’s definitely interesting to see what does it mean and why was it chosen.
In Korean, the word Samsung translates as ‘three stars’. This brand name was picked by Samsung founder Lee Byung-chull at the inception of the company with the idea of the company one day becoming powerful and ever-lasting as are stars in the skies.
But why exactly three, what does ‘three’ have to do with success, and why not two or four? The reason for this turns out to be hidden in the Korean language where the number ‘three’ is used as a symbol, a representation for something that is big and powerful.
