<p>bboys at my school are black</p>
rayna arn't you adopted? </p>
<p>do you understand the korean in kpop songs? if not, why listen.. for the dope beats? lol
<p>Yup I'm adopted :)</p>
<p>I do not understand the songs, but I don't really listen to the fast paced songs.
I like the more ballad type songs... =]
and I find subs... :P</p>
<p>I find that good music is good, whether you understand it or not.</p>
<p>I wanna learn someday... but I always have something else to work on.. which I'm currently procrastinating on. :P</p>
<p>^ Haha nice :D</p>
<p>You should learn Korean while you procrastinate! [=</p>
<p>Eh? I know how to speak Korean... though I admit my vocabulary is something awful.</p>
<p>I meant dancing. :P</p>
<p>Haha my bad! :P Sorry!</p>
<p>You should learn to dance while procrastinating!</p>
<p>haha from now on I'll practice handstands while not studying and not doing dishes.</p>
<p>lol sounds good :)</p>
<p>heh korean isn't too hard to learn. i was born in the states (1st generation, parents immigrants) but i couldn't speak english until kindergarten because my parents spoke korean all the time at home. interestingly, after i learned english i forgot a lot of korean but for some reason i can still speak/understand/read it if that makes sense..</p>
<p>the same thing happened to my russian friend (whose parents are both immigrants from the former soviet union). </p>
<p>rayna, make sure you support south korea in the Fifa world cup! one thing you may not know about us south koreans is that we all support our national teams/stars even if we don't like the sport (ie. kim yuna, etc.)</p>
<p>Thanks for the info!</p>
<p>I wish I learned all this type of stuff -.- one bad thing about being adopted. I just recently started getting interested in Korea... wish I took Korean lessons when I was younger. My mom asked me if I wanted too, but I refused. I didn't like going to Hebrew school, so I guess I thought Korean would be the same.</p>
<p>ahh the life of an adoptee... so many mysteries...</p>
<p>I wish I could read what that says...!!! translate, please?</p>
<p>대 <- the C looking thing is pronounced like a D, the H is pronounced with an eh. so this says, "deh"</p>
<p>한 <- the circle thing with the hat on it is the H sound. the thing to the right of it is an "ah" sound. the L on the bottom is pronounced with an "n" sound. this says, "han"</p>
<p>민 <- the square is the "m" sound. the single line to the right of it is pronounced like "e". you know what the L thing is now. so this says, "min"</p>
<p>국 <- the upside down L is the "g" sound. the horizontal line with the vertical line in the middle of it is the "ooh" sound. the other upside down L has the same sound. this says, "guk"</p>
<p>대한민국 <- deh han min guk!</p>
<p>This translates to: KOREA!!!!</p>
<p>you will hear the crowds chanting this</p>
<p>Thank you so much!</p>
<p>That was sad. I didn't even know the name of my own country in its own language.
I even know that in Spanish, English, Hebrew, and Japanese >.<</p>
<p>Can you transliterate "Han Hyunjung"?
It's my Korean name. However I never heard it actually pronounced. I only know how its spelled. It's quite sad. :'(</p>
<p>that would be your name in korean.</p>
<p>pronounced, "h + ah + n" + "hy + uh + n" + the next one is a bit hard. i dont know how i would translate it into english phonetics. its not pronounced Jung. its like jung but you dont pronounce the g, yet the infliction is there. </p>
<p>here i recorded myself saying it:</p>
<p>I never knew guys were Korean or could speak Korean until now!
<p>Uh..I'm Korean living in Korea.</p>
<p>THANK YOU SO MUCH MD5HASH!!!
thats how I thought it was pronounced, but it was never confirmed.</p>
<p>Yay! I wish I was living in Korea.</p>
<p>I think I'm better at Korean than English (mostly colloquially)
but I neither listen carefully to the words nor do I memorize any songs.</p>
<p>Maybe because I don't follow a particular group or maybe I just don't listen to the words as much as other people.</p>
<p>LOL I listened to the recording and it sounds like 1st generation Korean American alright.
For me, I have to admit it was awkward-for example, jeong sounded more like jong
but oh well, it was OK :D</p>
<p>^ Haha nice :P
What K-Pop do you like?
I listen to mostly DBSK and 2PM, although I also like some songs from Super Junior, Shinee, K.Will and SS501.</p>
<p>is hyunjung transliterated differently?</p>
<p>haha , the ones you mentioned above, I just listen to it as how others treat Top10.
I'll send a file to you when you PM me :D</p>
<p>I'm a fan of Jang Ki Ha!
I love rock and indie music.(He's the leader of a Korean Indie band and he graduated from SNU<top school in Korea)</p>
<p>Here's a link to "달이 차오른다. 가자!"
The choreography is awesome!</p>
<p>If you have any questions, feel free to ask :D</p>
<p>I knew what SNU was without looking it up!
A lot of actors/singer go to Dankook University too, I've read.</p>
<p>okay, thank you :)</p>
