    Hey learning Korean here too! :D

    Hello! I really enjoy listening to music all over the world, including Korean music (BTS is awesome by the way) and I always thought it would fun to listen without having to solely depend on translations. I love learning about other cultures too! I'm spending most of my time studying Spanish since its the most practical language to learn based on where I live. I'm learning Korean more for fun and I'm really enjoying it. :) Good luck with your studying! Working as a translator or interpreter would be really cool!

    I am interested in the culture too and love the music XD


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lil_naomi02

    My Spanish teacher said theres a program out there where they're looking for people to learn new languages like Korean and they'll send kids to korea in hopes they'll become translators.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AzizBrown3

    Hello! I'm learning because I wish to expand my business into Korea, and I'll be moving to Korea in about 3 weeks haha. But I have some friends who do Translation and they love the job! I'm sure you'll enjoy that work too! Happy studying :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fxxmohamed

    good luck on your trip

    Not going to lie, at first I wanted to start learning Korean because of BTS and Got7. But now I'm actually genuinely curious about the language and the culture and I hope to travel to South Korea and be able to fluently speak and carry on conversations haha


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/muneuna

    Korean is one of the many languages I have wanted to learn for a while now. I dunno why, but since I was young I've always been fascinated by Asian culture, language, and just the country of Asia itself. I always kind of procrastinated on learning though, but I was soon brought an infiration that made me really want to learn. Both BTS and kdrama lol. After this I want to learn Japanese so I wouldn't be able to verify as a weeaboo, and then Thai--maybe Chinese--and finally Hebrew. Lol im such an over achiever. infiiiiirrrressss mannnnnnnnn


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/aesthetegarden

    Oh my gosh, same. Since i was 3 I learned of pokemon and that just shot it off. As soon as I figured it was Japanese this happened. I have an opportunity to learn so many Asian languages now, and I can't pass it up. For some reason the continent and culture just seems, happy. And honestly, no one knows how they got roped into the cultures unless they have direct connections. My cousin is learning mandarin, so I was like "I want to learn something." and so I'm here now. My life is weird.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ImJiMin03

    Same here(only it started with Japan).


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lizette644440

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SalauiGipp

      I wanna learn korean so that whenever I'm listening to BTS songs, I don't have to focus on the English subs :)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rain967907

      I want to learn Korean because the band "Perfume" makes great songs. Here's a link... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6T0wOMsNrI&list=RDEMliSlYaJjx4dWTJwJgNb-VA

      Well my aunt is from South Korea and also I've been into kpop and other Korean pop culture related things since around 2009 so it was something I'm used to hearing and seeing, so about a year ago I thought I'd try learning properly because I have the most resources available to learn it from and might as well. It's just a want to be able to understand things without subtitles and converse with my aunt so that she isn't so isolated at family events really, hah :)
