Drama's Title in four different languages

Most Korean dramas mainly target oversea markets from Japan & China.
So they will give the title's name that suit each country very well.
Others have to rely on their English given name from the production company.

Today, let take a look of these names by using 
Park Si Hoo's drama" Neighborhood's Hero " as the example

( Local name : English name : pronunciation )

1. Korean

박시후 : Park Si Hoo : pak shi hu

동네의영웅 : Local hero : dongne-uiyeong-ung  


2. Japanese

パク・シフ : Park Si Hoo : Paku shifu

町の英雄 : Hero of the town : Machi no eiyū


3. Chinese

朴施厚 : Park Si Hoo : Pǔ shī hòu

邻家英雄# : Hero Next Door : Lín jiā yīng xióng

How about in your own language ?^^
