In Astronomy, the symbol of the sun is similar to D-letter Ri. D-letter Ri is one of the most important basic letters as you can guess. This letter is so simple that the foreigners can be confused with other simple letters.

The Moon, or a month
korean pronunciation Wall
chinese pronunciation Yue
japanese pronunciation Gatzu
This letter means also Monday in Korea and Japan.
Chinese use another expression for the Monday, Xingchi Yi.
Literally, Xing Chi Yi means ‘the first star day’.
Then you can guess that Tuesday will be Xing Chi Er, ‘the second star day’.
Then Wednesday, Xing Chi San(3),
Thursday, Xing Chi Si(4),
Friday, Xing Chi Wu(5),
Saturday, Xing Chi Liu(6).
But Sunday is not Xing Chi Chi(7), but Xing Chi Ri(Sun) or Xing Chi Tian(Sky).
Of course, I prefer the Moon day than the first day for Monday.
