Street Art in Busan

Quick post!

I was just googling images of artwork and doing some research on different topics and low and behold I find a genre that I have always been fond of, “graffiti” or “street art”. In Busan, from what I’ve been told, there is an area full of artwork on the walls and streets. I just thought I’d post this article I found on that highlights this art.

Check it out! I’ll be periodically posting more of these things that I find. I’ll probably do a post later on the history behind street art and how at one time it was used for the economical advancement in the U.S.


Seonghami eotteoke dueseyo? : “Word of the Day” series

So the word of the day today is actually a phrase.

“Seonghami eotteoke dueseyo?”

This is how you would ask someone (formally) for their name. Now I’ve been told there’s a simpler way to ask. And it is, “ireumi mwoyeyo?” 

Now I talked about this before and that is the usage of Ne and Aniyo. I was doing a bit of research and from what I’ve learned is this, “ne” is more of an agreeance. When someone asks you something and the answer is the affirmative then you would say “ne” as in “I agree” or “Yes”. If it’s a negative then you would respond with “aniyo”, as in, “I don’t agree.”

Just a side note, I love TTMK. It was a site I used frequently when I first started learning and still use from time to time when I need a quick word to use for the day or to refresh my memory. Check them out!  They have audio and exercises.

That’s all today! Practice. Practice! The only way you’re gonna learn is if you start using words in everyday speech.

Pop Culture News…

If you’ve been following the story of Jessica, of Girls Generation… then you’ll know by now that she’s been ousted. Now that she’s no longer part of SNSD. Reasons being, she was “too focused on outside ventures”. She, however, had this to say about the situation:

“I was excited about our upcoming fan events only to shockingly be informed by my company and 8 others that as of today I am no longer a member,” Jessica wrote about her Girls’ Generation exit. “I’m devastated-my priority and love is to serve as a member of GG, but for no justifiable reason, I am being forced out.” – (reported by hollywoodtake)

Soooooooo, with this behind her, Jessica is now launching her own fashion brand. According to the kpopherald, she began promotions on Monday barely a week after been exiled. Her new brand? BLANC & ECLARE.

So those hoping for her to rejoin SNSD, I’m not sure that’s going to happen. I’m curious to see what the entire line will consist of and how much it’ll cost. From what I’ve seen, so far it’s just really nice sunglasses. I could be wrong and she could be in the process of expanding so we’ll see. For me, currently, it’s really nice but it’s kinda pricey.

But let’s reflect on happier times. Girls Generation when they were all together…

Artist of the Week: Crush

So, I do this thing where I try to find new artists to listen to. Sometimes I find them through friends, other blogs, or people I follow. The one artist that really has been sticking with me lately is… Crush.

Crush, is apparently a producer and singer-songwriter, who is making a big splash on the scene. He’s worked with artists such as Gaeko, Jay Park, Lydia Paek (another one of my favs who I will highlight later). He has like this hip-hop/r&b vibe going and I really like his sound. So for the week of October 5th [I start my highlight weeks on Sunday] Crush will be the Artist of the Week! Check him out!
