Korean term or phrase: Korean Name (see web link below)
I'm translating a Japanese document into English and came across what I believe to be the name of a South Korean woman. The characters are here:

Can anyone help me with an English translation of the name?

Thanks!

English translation:Mi Seon Jeong
Explanation:
"Mi Seon" is first name and "Jeong" is last name. In Korean, first name comes last and last name comes first. Therefore, the first character in the text is last name and the next two characters are first name. For your information, "Mi" in Chinese character means beauty and "Seon" means good or virtue.
