For Korean learners: Are there any words and phrases you have learned from watching Kdramas?
I know many of you guys that are learning Korean have seen or watched Kdramas. So, what have you guys picked up from watching them. For me, I learned the word: 삼촌 (uncle) and the word/phrase: 죽을래? (Do you want to die?) XD
I've learned the word "오라버니" which means brother and the phrase "아이씨" which means like "darn" or "damn" LoL
Lol, I know. That's why I only say it around my non-Korean family because they don't rlly understand the meaning of it.
I just meant that people might take it the wrong way, as we all very well know about koreaboos and such, also could be disrespectful in some ways :)
No, I don't watch Kdramas, you might have seen my comment in your post about anyone learning Korean because of BTS...
But, I've heard and learned some Korean words because of my classmates that are Kpop fans. Like "oppa", "unnie", "saranghae(yo)" (sorry I'm lazy to activate my Korean keyboard for now)
as a fellow kpop fan haha, i've learned the basic weird koreaboo words. don't wanna say them bc i think you get the point :D
A lot of you are saying the common Koreaboo basic words, just please don't use them and be a Koreaboo, saying these things randomly is really...Unecessary I guess? Idk, please don't be a koreaboo, especially if you don't understand the full meaning to something. It's really annoying.. and pretty rude too if you don't understand the full in depth meaning and how it's used.For examole the whole oopa/Noona/unnie/hyung are honorifics and you have to address people by that most of the time in Korea if you are the younger person, but a lot of people who don't understand now make it that oppa refers to something entirely different.
비밀 -"secret", a couple of swears :) and a few others too. It can be difficult though because quite often the subtitles are far from the true meaning of what the characters are saying as they have been changed to make the most "sense" to English-speakers.
Although Kdramas haven't necessarily taught me that many words outright when I hear one that sounds cool I quite often look up the meaning and try to learn it -so they do inspire me in that way! Also, when I already know a word or phrase it really boosts my confidence to hear it being used because A: I feel like a fluent Goddess and B: If I was feeling unsure as to whether I was pronouncing it right or whether if it was even used in Korean it makes me feel surer. Kpop also does similar things for me, and both are helpful listening practice! (or speaking practice too if I sing along)
