What's the reason why you are studying the Korean Language?
Not to be a hypocrite, yes because of BTS and also kdrama. But aside from them, it's because I really like their culture. The people living their, the dust, garbage and everything LOL.
I'm not sure I understand the reference to dust and garbage, but it is a fascinating culture, the people are smart, industrious, and polite, and the country is beautiful (actually far cleaner and better kept up than many parts of the States) and has a wonderful mixture of tradition and modernity. Besides the drama and the music, the food is amazing, and the older generation definitely still shows their gratitude to Americans for our part in protecting their liberty.
I decided to learn Korean after a thinking about what language to learn for a long damn time xD ... I have always been interested in Asian Culture and I knew I wanted to learn a language from one of the countries.. I started learning japanese.. so I know a few stuff from there.. but later on My sister said she had already started learning Korean. So.. Better to have stuff in common! I am now learning Korean and recently started listening to BTS. BTS just gives me even more motivation =) It's a pretty language.
