멈추지 않는 (meomchuji anhneun) [Word of the Day]

안녕하서요!

How many of you have heard TOP’s song “Doom Dada”? I’m sure a lot of you have. I was watching the news the other day and it was a clip of a press conference. The woman reading the statement and answering the questions said 멈추지 않는 and immediately my mind went to that song!

So today’s word is…

멈추지 않는 (meomchuji anhneun) | “endless; unstoppable; relentless”

Example:

  • 멈추지 않는 자동차 (meomchuji anhneun jadongcha) | “unstoppable cars”
  • 멈추지 않는 뜨거운 영혼 (meomchuji annneun tteugeoun yeonghon) | “The unstoppable and hot souls” [TOP “Doom Dada”]

Monday Kpop Update | BTS’ SUGA and V Update + BTOB Fandom and Netizens Angry with SBS “Gayo Daejeon” + Starship Unveils New Members of Cosmic Girls

I’m trying to find a way to add a tagline to these kpop updates. I have the headline stories along with other stories that happened all in one post and I have no words to kinda help me express that. So if you have any ideas, drop them in the comments below and I just might use it! (Of course you’ll get a special shout-out if I pick your tagline!)

And now on to the news…

4Minute has officially announced that they will in fact be making a comeback in January. After the special selfie with Skrillex, it was only a matter of time before the official announcement was made. Lee Sung Kyung will give a special performance at the 2015 MBC Acting Awards. And actress Actress Lee Min-jung will join Rain back on the small screen for the new MBC drama, “Come Back Mister”. She will play the leading role as the widow.

Jessica Jung was also in the news today as she was featured on the cover of Singaporean magazine, NUYOU.


 

In great news, Big Hit decided to update fans on the status of Suga and V. After announcing that BTS would have to cancel show due to illness, it is has been revealed that everyone is ok.

“All of the BTS members returned to Korea on December 28, and members SUGA and V received close examinations at a specializing hospital in the country. The results of the examination show that there is thankfully nothing wrong with SUGA or V; on top of that, the other members were also revealed to have no problems with their health, so they have all returned to their dorms to rest…”

But then there was the mishap with SBS’ “Gayo Daejun”… apparently during before BTOB performed a voice can be heard saying, “Why are they doing a musical again?” and it seems that BTOB may have been able to hear it as well and according to fans, it reflected in their performance.

(it can be heard at 0:20)

And now fans are upset. They’ve taken to their SNS accounts to express their displeasure and disbelief with SBS. Many saying that they were in tears watching the sadness and hurt in the eyes of each member of BTOB.

SBS later released a statement apologizing for the incident.

“First of all, we are sorry that we didn’t look into [the issue] sooner. The mic glitch is just a misunderstanding. At the time, the only mics present were the ones handed to the artists and the ones installed in the audience seats. No mics were handed to the staff members. The production crew will look into the exact cause [of the glitch], but in the meantime, it was determined that that was not the voice of our staff member.”

Fans aren’t having it and they aren’t happy with how SBS has chosen to handle the situation. Some even saying that it sounds as if SBS is “blaming the audience”.

Maybe with the outrage something else will be said or done but for the time being, this may be the only acknowledgement we see of it.


And finally, Starship Entertainment is still announcing the new members of Cosmic Girls! This sub-group is the first one to not have any Chinese members.

These three members will make up the “Sweet Unit” sub-group, the third addition to the two previously revealed “Joy Unit” and “Wonder Unit” subgroups. This subunit is meant to be full of members who are sweet, but gentle, hence the name “Sweet Unit.”

낡다 (nakda) [Word of the Day]

안녕하서요!

Today’s word is one that I heard recently. It’s actually on my list of words to learn for the month but it apparently hasn’t come into rotation very often. However, I managed to stumble on it today and now I’m sharing it with all of you.

낡다 (nakda) [adj] | “(of a thing) old; worn out”

Example:

  • 내 신발 낡았어요. (nae sinbal nalg-ass-eoyo.) | “My shoes are worn out.”
