I'm a Korean girl, as far as I know Korean boys usually don't interested in K-pop or K-dramas. Many of them even hate K-pop idol/drama fan, so I don't think this is a good topic to impress them. Which is your purpose, the boy or the language? If your purpose is Korean boy, they like game(like LOL) or comedy shows(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BczjMwktUTk, you can see Korean comedy is quite violent, abusive to woman), soccer(yeah, I'm talking about Son Heung-Min or whatever..), electronic products(latest phone, computer, etc), and SEXY woman. If you just interested in Korean language, K-drama is OK, But even I can't understand K-pop lylics properly.. I need subtitle.. what the..?? I also recommend K-movie. Korean movie market is huge, there are lots of good movies, and you can learn about Korean history and culture in a short time.

Oh, you edited your discussion!!

The K-Pop & K-Drama parts are deleted in your discussion, so I can't see it now, HAHA!! How funny ;D

I AM native Korean(as I wrote already), so I don't need to learn Korean.

I can't understand K-pop lylics in one listening, not because I don't know Korean language, but because the lylics are usually incomplete sentences, pronounced very inaccurate(for the SWAG), using irregular/ wierd words. It maybe OK to learn some Korean 'words', but not good for learning full/proper Korean sentences to use in real talk.

This information is very useful. However, there's just one thing, you always say "lylics", I thought in the first comment that it was just a typo, but you said it again on your reply, twice. And I hope you won't get me wrong, because your user literally says, "Correct my English, thanks!"

So, the correct word for that is lyrics, (I figured you must have spelled that based on how we say it in Korean).

Well, anyways, thanks for the information! ^^

Watch K-dramas. It should help I think or you can just get a app. Also you can watch YouTube videos. Hope I'm helpful.

........uhh you could ask him in English if he can help you learn Korean but don't tell him you're learning Korean on his account just tell him that you like Kdramas or Kpop and want to learn more. It will be helpful to learn with someone who is a native Korean and it could be a good excuse to see him more often. However if he doesn't speak English then try using language learning sites that teach common introduction phrases and then go from there.
