Just my opinion as one of Korean. Lots of Korean name is so hard to pronounce.
My Korean name is “Seonghyeok Chun”. If you are working as a server, can you say my name exactly?
I like my Korean name more, but in US, I introduce English name “Dante Chun” like secondary name tho.

+ Using difficult name is not good at communication. And sometimes it ruins the context of conversation.
