밑 (mit) [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

To start the weekend, I decided to use a directional word. I will be doing these next week so I figured I’d just get a headstart. This word actually throws me off because I always get it confused with 위 (wi) which means, “up; on top; above”.

밑 (mit) [n] | “below; bottom; lower; underneath”

Example:

  • 침대 밑 봐 (chimdae mit bwa) | “look under the bed”

I almost feel like I’m getting progressively worse with these examples. I’ll keep trying.

See you next week!

Wednesday Kpop Update | Korean-American Actress Amy Deported Back to U.S. + Sulli Instagram Hacked + April “Muah!” Video

On this day in the world of kpop:

Rain decided to postpone his official comeback onto the music scene. Why? Well he wants to release a quality album and feels the December deadline just isn’t giving him enough time to do that. So when he does make a comeback, the music is going to be top notch! Meanwhile, he’s on tour.

Brown Eyed Girls’ Narsha recently said during an interview on “Radio Star” that being a sunbae in the music industry is hard work! When they go to music shows, they’re greeted by hundreds of hoobae and they can’t even go to the restroom. Of course they release it’s a lot on them as well. The hosts joked with her though teaching her a “faster” approach.

LOEN Entertainment has been investing in CUBE Entertainment. Apparently, this has been a move that has been in the making under the radar. Despite the acquisition, don’t expect to see much of a change in the name or in the artists.

TaeTiSeo is preparing for a winter comeback and have released teasers, group and individual.


 

In less thrilling news…

Korean-American actress Amy has lost her battle in South Korea. After being fined for the illegal drug use of Zolpidem, she was sentenced to deportation. This ruling came as a result of a previous charge where she was caught with the drug Propofol. After that ruling, she agreed that if she was ever caught breaking the law again, she’d be deported. And now, the court is making her stick to her agreement.

“The Immigration Office allowed Amy to stay in Korea after receiving a law-abiding covenant from her that said, “I will not object against being deported if I disobey the law again” twice. The law allows the deportation of foreigners if they are sentenced to imprisonment due to crimes such as handling drugs.

After having her case dismissed, she expressed serious grief saying: “I don’t know if I even have the energy to live on… This is tormenting me because regardless of what the papers say, I have always lived my life believing I am Korean.” Also saying in her statement that if she wanted to live as an American, she simply wouldn’t have left.

Many people are seeing her comments and telling her that she actually brought this on herself and they don’t feel sorry for her. Personally, I can understand why she would be grieved. She has a life in Korea and family and friends there too. It can’t be easy to leave a place where you want to stay.

It should also be noted that both drugs are legal in the U.S. and are used as anti-depressants as well to treat insomnia. 

It gets better Amy.

 


Sulli got an earful as well.

Apparently, she was hacked. And the hacker only took down one photo which was a promotion photo for f(x)’s comeback. She quickly took to instagram to let everyone know, it wasn’t her fault. She even showed proof that she was in fact hacked.

As usual, fans weren’t buying it and called her out on her bluff. Interestingly enough, a lot of the ones commenting and attacking her may not have even been f(x) fans. She did, however, receive some support from an unlikely source… netizens.

[+128, -31] 걍 Can’t they all just go each other’s ways? I used to feel sorry for f(x) fans but now I don’t. She left why would you go to her instagram and check to chew her out ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

[+86, -100] Man f(x) fans make me want to defend Sulli ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

APRIL’s new video, “Muah!”

잡지 (jab-ji) [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Alright so today’s word is a pretty easy word to remember. I like this one because when it first showed up in my “vocabulary list rotation”, I thought it meant something else.

Random… I know.

잡지 (jab-ji) [n] | “magazine”

Example:

  • 너 잡지를 읽나요? (neo jabjileul ilgnayo?) | “Did you read the magazine?”

**Sample sentence**

Alright so that’s it for today. Really short and simple right? Remember, the goal is to continue building your vocabulary.
