Default Korean-American Planetary Naming Committee

This is for a homebrew but it's much like 2300.

QUESTION: What do they name the planet?

Garden planet discovered. Americans beat the Koreans there by about 6months. Both polities have colonies on the planet and there are some bad feelings between the two. The two colonies decide to host a joint planet-naming committee as a means to improve relationships. Both colonies are young (several years old) and small (under 30K each).

(System was named Lawhead by American discoverer but planet is just referred to as IV at this point.)

Alternate world history/future... The Korean Union is a combination of North/South after the collapse of the North several decades ago. The North went coo-coo, tried to invade then nuked Japan. American military had been downsized in Korea for years. Remnants assisted the South but the US government, recovering from several disasters, refused to send additional aid. On one hand, they couldn't due to a diminished Pacific presence (they pulled out of the Phillipines also). On the other, the US was in an isolationist stance. So the Koreans are not allies of the US and there is lingering resentment over the "abandonment" as they see it. That was several decades ago.

So what are some ideas for a name? Is it in Korean or English? Is it a hybrid word? Something meaningful? Something happy?
