어서! 빨리! (Hurry!) (video) | [Grammar of the “Day”]

안녕하세요!

We’ve reached the last day of my “K-dramas Teach Korean Too!” video series called “Pit-A-Pat.” I hope this week has been useful for you. Let me know if you want me to do this again because I honestly had a lot of fun doing it!

I decided to end the week with something easier than before to kind of give you a bit of a break. This is something very familiar and so there’s no need for me to add any additional information.

See you next week!

저기… 보여. (Pointing to Something/Do you see it?) {video}| [Grammar of the “Day”]

안녕하세요!

Alright so unlike the previous days, I’m not going to explain today’s video! This video is really two things: 1) a refresher for the usage of 저기 and (2) adding to what you may already know about how to use it.

However, I will talk about one thing!

보여 | comes from the verb 보이다 (boida)

  • to be shown
  • something is visible
  • a little different than 보다 [watching/looking at]

…기억이 난다… Expressing Heartbreak (video)| [Grammar of the “Day”]

안녕하세요!

Today’s lesson is not as upbeat as yesterday and with good reason. We deal with a wide range of emotions throughout our life and one of those emotions just so happens to be heartbreak. Or, if you watch a lot of k-dramas, you may see this happen… often.

So how do you express it?

The video describes three different ways to express sadness.

  • 애틋하다
  • 간절하다
  • 괴롭다

I’ll let the video describe those words. I wanted to focus on 기억이 난다. Even though the video is using an example from a k-drama describing a sad situation, this can also be used in a practical way.

기억이 난다 | “I remember…”

  • 기억 | comes from the verb 기억하다 meaning “to remember”
  • 난다 |  in this case, a form of “I”
  • phrase needs to be conjugated

This can be expressed in two different ways:

  • -던 기억이 나요 | “I remember”
  • -던 생각이 나요 | “I recall”

Let’s look at a practical example: [rough examples]

  • 음악 듣던 기억이 나요. | “I remember listening to music.”
  • 밥을 먹던 생각이 나요. | “I recall eating rice.”

These may not be the best examples but just an idea of how this can be used.

Check out the video for a full breakdown!

Korean “Layering Skincare” Routine [video]

I really do miss posting videos like this. Today I had some time on my hands and was pretty much watching wayyyy too much YouTube. But we all totally are benefitting from my lazy “I wanna watch YouTube” day.

I was in search on new skincare routine and I just decided to go to one of my favorite YouTubers NamiiCho and what do I find?? A skincare routine that might help me out! My acne is back with a vengeance. And with acne comes dry skin from acne treatments and scarring.

Fun times…

But hopefully this routine will help me. What do you guys think? And what are you using?

Help!
