: : I don't know about it being Viet Chinese, but it's definitely Korean. Character for grass.
: I'm not sure, but I think the Korean last name Cho is actually the character Cheung ( as in Jacky Cheung). Definitely not grass.
- It depends on the pronuciation of Cho. One character in Korean does mean grass. You can find this character on the Zig-zag papers that they sell in Korean indicating that the papers are specially made for smoking grass. Very smooth paper if I remember correctly. Ask for Cho papers next time any of you go to Korea.
In Vietnamese, the Cho character means feces. I don't think that is your name. Whoever told you that you were Vietnamese must have been kidding with you.
