"북쪽으로 가지 마세요."

Translation:Do not go north.

January 20, 2018



What's wrong with the north?


North Korea, for one!


It's not wrong, though.


ㅋㅋㅋㅋ지문 예시 ㅋㅋㅋ


Where's your sense of adventure, Duo?!


but i want to find ri jeong hyuk there!


세계를 같이 탐험하자 ?!


I'm kinda fascinated with North Korea. I would like to visit this country one day... Anyway, this time I am going to ignore Duo's advice.


If you do live there, be sure not to take a poster off the wall of a hotel; you may wind up dead.


Whoever done this, was an idiot though (I'm saying 'whoever', as almost certainly it wasn't Otto Warmbier, the person who got eventually punished for it. Otto was probably randomly picked because of his American nationality, as evidence pointing to him was rather laughable). If you go to North Korea, you gotta behave according to their rules, if you have even a slightest objection, just don't go at all. It baffles me how some people, who are completely aware of what place North Korea is and who are conscious of all the terrible things happening in that country go there only to do show off how much of edgy cool kids they are by doing whatever is prohibited there whenever guides and minders turn their backs on them for a second.

I kind of feel sorry for that guy (one who took the poster). An absurdly unmeaningful and completely pointless act of defiance costed his mate's life. What a terrible remorse for the rest of the life at a price of nothing but stupidity and short-sightedness...


Can 쪽 be omitted here?
