I haven’t really posted a video in a while and I wanted to end the week with something fun.
Okay, so I don’t know how many of you have Korean pen-pals or online friends you talk too or friends that you text but for those of you who are just starting to text in Korean or chat online in Korean and want to learn more informal ways to communicate with your friends through text!
…and by friends I mean people you are casual-informal with…
So with that being said, I found this video and I really liked it and thought it was pretty helpful.
New Weekly Lesson next week!
So this is new to me! Only because I don’t live in Korea.
This is common in Korea when you like someone and they like you too. For example, let’s say there’s this cute guy in your class and you like him and you find out he likes you too… you’d use these terms.
썸녀 (sseomnyeo) | the person you like is a girl
썸남 (sseomnam) | the person you like is a guy
This comes from the word 썸 (sseom) which means basically, you and another person both like each other but you aren’t dating and of course there’s 썸을 타다 (sseomeul tada) which basically is like the same thing.
And I don’t know about you but learning this totally changed the meaning of 썸(Some) by 소유(SoYou) and 정기고(JunggiGo) for me.
I really really wanted to do an Artist of the Week but I couldn’t really narrow down which artist I wanted to feature so instead I decided to post some new music here to make up for it!
Alright so I’m doing something a bit different and posting an “Artist to Watch” instead of an Artist of the Week. I’ve been searching all over for something new and SM Entertainment surprised me by debuting one of its new artists from its sub-label. SM bought a few lower level labels to expand their diversity to reach more people and this is one of their artists from that merge.
I’m excited about this direction and cannot wait to hear more music from her!
