I just got a whole bunch of #comics in #Korean. Can't wait to read all of them by disappearing from the internet for a week. There's some books in the boxes that are stuff I wanted to finish before I moved but couldn't, like all of the #하시연 books.

Does anyone recall the name of a #Korean #anime series about a lonely misfit nerd who wakes up one morning in the body of a beautiful, very busty girl? I think he worked in a video store. He had once been a promising track athlete.

On #LearningKorean.

I can't help but notice that many pronunciations and transliterations of #English loan words in #Korean are based on #BritishEnglish. As a #PhilippineEnglish speaker, it is confusing.

Example: computer
* Philippine English: kom-pyu-ter (neutral and syllabic)
* British English: kom-pyu-to
* Korean transliteration: 컴퓨터
* Korean romanization: keom-pyu-teo
* Korean pronunciation: kom-pyu-to

If it was me, the transliteration would've been 컴퓨텔 (keom-pyu-ter) or 컴퓨텔루 (keom-pyu-ter-ru).

Again, I'm still learning. These are just my observations coming from Philippine English and #Filipino #languages.

I wonder how people with language disorders (DLD) like me handle languages like #German, #Dutch, #Japanese or #Korean compared to English. I’m not sure if it was my native tongue that worsen my learning ability during childhood. Does the same happen with other languages or is it a bit different?

Found a song that I can use as my #Korean reading practice.

BUT! It is a very sad song! This is the saddest song I've ever heard in my life.

You don't have to understand the lyrics, the composition and performance will capture your soul and make you feel what it is about. By the time you understand the lyrics, you'll feel your soul being pierced by a double-blade sword.

스물다섯, 스물하나 (Twenty-Five, Twenty-One) by #Jaurim #자우림 released in 2013.

If you're wondering if this song inspired the #Kdrama #스물다섯스물하나, I have no idea, however, the story of the K-drama is very close to the lyrics.

I know it's a serious issue with big political ramifications in both #Korean #Politics and #VideoGames internationally but I still can't help but laugh the more I read about #Megalia.

It started as a group of women who copy-pasted
#misogynistic stuff from forums but with the genders reversed to illustrate a point. But so many of the men using those forums were too stupid to understand it even after it was explained to them that the group got demonized as misandrist.

They've also done a campaign to encourage women to stop obeying conventional beauty standards. Oh, and they lobbied to get a porn site that hosted noncon porn shut down.

Eventually, the movement fragmented over the question of whether it was okay to be homophobic against gay men. Notably, if you could doxx married ones on the basis that it was misogynistic to their wives to hide it from them. Megalia banned the practice on their site but that was unpopular enough to cause splintering and infighting.

But, getting back to the so absurd that you can't help but laugh, their legacy today includes a
#Feminist hand gesture, 🤏. It sends #incels in the country frothing at the mouth. Nominally, it's supposed to look like an equals sign implying gender equality. But for reasons that I'm sure have nothing to do with deep-seated insecurities, a bunch of men insist it means "Korean men have small dicks". Patriarchy isn't limited to white supremacist ethno-nationalism, I guess.

Now a bunch of game companies with games popular in Korea are in the middle of a panic because an animator who worked on a bunch of them said something slightly feminist online. That caused incels to go into overdrive hunting for evidence that she was a monster. They found over a dozen key frames in animations she worked on where characters made that shape with their hands.

Again, it's awful that they are harassing her. It's gross that a bunch of companies have pledged to never work with her again and remove all content of hers from games. But it's so absurd that it's hard not to laugh.

I finished the short story 알리바바와 40인의 도적 by 조동신 (Jo Dongshin): a streamer killed online + a locked-room mystery, loved it!

With this I finished this anthology published for the 40th anniversary of the Korean Crime Writers’ Association (한국추리작가협회). All the short stories had the number 40 in their title, and this number was also (more or less) part of the plot. Overall an entertaining book that allowed me to read seven different authors!

#Korean #Vocabulary
I saw the word 대포폰 (大砲-폰), which means a burner phone. I thought it was a strange word because 대포 means gun/cannon, but I learnt that 대포 also means “lie”, “falsehood”. As burner phones are used as a way to conceal your identity (at least in mystery novels), the second meaning of 대포 makes sense here.

Why am I not surprised that #autism was "possibly" the reason why a #Korean woman committed a gruesome crime (July 2023)?

Does anyone know how to translate "I am proud of you" into Cantonese, Korean, and Japanese?

G. translates it to 我為你感到驕傲 (ngo5 wai4 nei5 gam2 dou3 giu1 ngou6) where 驕傲 (giu1 ngou6) is like "proud, arrogant, conceited" but a negative connotation(?) -- which makes me think there is *not* a direct translation of the English meaning. Is there a positive connotation for these words?

I finished 아직은 고양이 by 정선임 (Jeong Seon-im), the second story in the collection 여름 기담.

The collection is in two volumes and the book covers are really cool. I couldn’t resist buying both! The stories in the “spicy” 매운맛 book should be more scary than the “mild” 순한맛 book.

The back covers are really well done, with all the information being related to the book (for ex, the nutrition facts lists the authors, the storage indication says “on bookshelf”, etc.).

Picture of two books in Korean. They both have a similar cover that looks exactly like the packaging for a curry sauce. The title of the book is displayed like the name of the curry sauce, and the name of the publisher has a logo that looks like a well known Korean food manufacturing company. One book has a green background and the taste is “mild”. On the right side of the cover, there is a picture of the curry sauce served on a plate of rice with meat. The other book’s background is red with a label indicating that the taste is “extra hot”. Again, there is a picture of the meal, but the sauce on this one looks spicier (more red).

There’s an alley called “pimatgol” 피맛골 / 避馬골 in center Seoul.

피맛골 means “alley to avoid horses”. The sign explains that, during the Joseon Dynasty, ordinary people had to bow down to the ground when they came across higher officials (who were travelling by horse on the main road). To avoid this inconvenience, they used a back alley, thus called 피맛골.

#Korean #Korea

Picture of a sign that explains the origin of the “pimatgol” in Korean and English. English part: Jongno, located near the royal palace and government offices of the Joseon Dynasty, was a very busy road along which higher government officials travelled by horse or sedan. In those days ordinary people were required to pay their respects to government officials by bowing down to the ground whenever they came across one of them on the road. To avoid this inconvenience, people started to use a smaller alley situated behind the main road. As more and more people passed through this alley, the number of bars and restaurants on it gradually increased and the alley became one of the most popular places in the area, The name of this alley, Pimatgol or Pimagil, literally means "an alley by which to avoid horses.”
Picture of an alley with an ancient looking wooden gate. On the gate, a sign says “pimatgol”. The alley passes through modern buildings that seem to entirely cover the alley. There are various shops on each side.

I couldn't resume learning #japanese , since I've been procrastinating it for too long already. Instead I've decided to learn #hangul and #korean
Reading and writing definitely looks simpler compared to Japanese. There are no kanjis in Korean and there is a logic behind the syllables and their pronunciation.
And of course I'm super-motivated by the amazing #kdrama productions 😀

I'm watching the GoBilly Beginner Korean videos on YouTube and also own a copy of his book Korean Made Simple. They each use a different way to say "I want ..." and I was hoping to understand the difference.

The YouTube videos use NOUN + 을/를 가지고 싶다 to say "I want something."

The book uses NOUN + 을/를 원합니다.

Is one better than the other? Should they be used in different circumstances? What is the difference, if any?

Thanks for any input!

I do wonder how #hashtags are supposed to work in locales without uppercase letters. e.g. #Korean.

I mainly use English, which is space-separated but with capital letters, and Japanese, which is not space-separated but uses logographic letters, aka Kanji. If all hashtags are written in hiragana, then I imagine it'd be hard to read even for sighted folks - and even more so for screenreaders.
