Expired question
About Korean surname..

I took this sentence somewhere..

"성명 신고은. 어디 신씨에요? 함평?"

It means: "Full name Shin Go Eun. Where did you get the 'Shin' from? Hampyeong?"
Is the translation correct?

And my question is, why does he asked Hampyeong specifically? Is the surname 'Shin' is related to Hampyeong or something?
