Korean song with numbers as title

There was a song long ago (around 8-10 years) that I really liked. The song was only numbers in the title like 636 or something.

From what I can remember they were fairly unknown and had a male vocalist and was electronic. They music video was in a factory that made female cyborgs. Since it was so long ago my memory might be totally off.

Sorry if my description is really vague. I can answer any more questions if you guys need.

EDIT: It would have been closer to the 10 year mark. I remember listening to This song constantly around the same time. Now it might be that the song has totally fallen into obscurity because ilac (일락) was significantly more popular has also gone down that route.

It took me three years but I just passed 10,000 learned words. Here are my thoughts on the process of learning and how it’s helped my Korean overall.

My Method-

Spaced repetition, everyday, for an hour. I don't think I have missed a day in 3 years.

Consistency has been the key here. I will note- this is roughly an hour per day of reviewing the words. I spend additional time reading materials(fiction books, textbooks, news articles, twitter etc) to find words I don’t know and make new flash cards based on those words. That is probably an addition hour per day.

After the first 2000 words or so- I started using Korean definitions for all my cards(got this tip from the Fluent Forever book). Initially this is extremely painful- but it’s been SO worth it. You dramatically improve your reading speed, comprehension and pronunciation this way(I ready aloud when I study).

My App - SmartCards+

This is the app I use to learn. I started with Anki 3 years ago and in the process of becoming obsessed with learning Korean vocabulary I created this app(iPhone only unfortunetily!). It’s very similar to Anki in te

I made a web-app for practicing Korean numbers.

I recently got started learning Korean and just got to the numbers. I couldn't find a good resource to really drill them in, so I decided to make my own. Maybe some of you might find it useful as well.

http://koreannumbers.com/

Known issues:

  • The audio sometimes stops working when multitasking. (just reload)
  • On some devices (old ipads?) it has a weird offset and doesn't align correctly.
  • Stringing together audio clips like this really makes for a very unnatural flow.

Hope you like it :)

[Tips for Korean learners] I didn't know why many English speakers say '맞아요' in response to every remark I made, now I figure out why: "Right!" is not always "맞아요!"

Hello! TTTempting everyone! This is the Korean Grammar Doctor!

안녕하세요! TTTempting한 여러분. 한국어 문법 의사가 오랜만에 돌아왔습니다.

.

.

Many of my friends(native English speakers) say '맞아요!' in response to every remark I made, like when I say 'I went to 부산 last week and the whole city was really awesome', then they say "맞아요!" even though they have never been to 부산.

.

I found it weird. 맞아요 is used when someone is really sure that something is correct(the fact) OR someone agrees with you(agreement). They hadn't ever been to 부산, how could they agree on 'the fact?' The context of that the person had been to 부산 and thought that 부산 is awesome must precede before saying '맞아요.'

.

I have stayed confused for a long time, and recently, I found the English word 'right' has several meanings when it is used as an exclamation or a response, unlike the Korean expression '맞아요.'

.

So, I am going to explain why '맞아요' is not always 'right' and suggests Korean expressions.

Would you like to exchange letters in Korean?

Hello r/Korean!

I am a Korean-American living in Ireland (yes, that's 3-in-1!). I am a philatelist (= stamp collector), and enjoy hand-writing letters to people all over the world. Although I am fluent in Korean, I rarely have a chance to hand-write in Hangul, so I would love to exchange letters with you wherever you may be in the world. I think this would be a great opportunity for others to practice their Hangul writing too.

I don't plan on dedicating the exchanges as long-term pen-pal thing, so no pressure! I am happy with just a one-time exchange. Please use your favorite local stamp(s) to reply to my letter. If you're interested, please message me.

[Tips for Korean learners] -라는 / -라고 하는 are commonly used for 'which is called ~~'

Hello! TTTempting everyone! This is the Korean Grammar Doctor!

안녕하세요. 한국어 문법 의사입니다!

.

At the meetup, one of my friends took his turn to introduce multiple Nintendo devices which he used to play Pocketmon games, saying "저는 닌텐도로 포켓몬 게임을 해요."

.

However, in Korean language, 닌텐도 is a company name, not a device. So, other Korean members were confused and didn't know what he tried to say. We asked him to clarify his remark and he said that he played games with multiple 닌텐도 devices, especially 닌텐도 DS. Then, a lady member in her 50s didn't understand what 닌텐도 DS was.

Instantly and intuitively, I realized that lots of English speakers don't generally use -라고 하는 or 라는 to introduce something to other people which isn't very common or well-known.

I gave him advice that it is better to say '닌텐도 DS로 게임을 해요 OR 닌텐도 DS라는 게임기로 게임을 해요' in this context.

[Tips for Korean learners] 'Being distracted ' is not always 산만하다!

Hello! TTTempting everyone! This is the Korean Grammar Doctor!

안녕하세요! 여러분! 한국어 문법 의사입니다.

.

Last week, my girlfriend wanted to describe a hectic day at work and said '오늘 너무 바빴어요. 저는 정말 산만했어요.' She wanted to say 'It was a hectic day. My mind was all over the place.' I intuitively found it a bit awkward to me, but I didn't know why. I have looked up some information to figure it out, and found the answer. I would like to share this with Korean learners.

.

.

산만하다 means '분위기나 태도가 어수선하거나 정리가 안 되어 질서가 없다.(One's mind or attitude being disoriented due to lack of order and consistency.)' Reading this definition, it seems fine to say '오늘 저는 정말 산만했어요.' but it is more commonly used to describe 1) ability and capability to concentrate, 2)temporarily lose ability and capability to concentrate for some reason, 3) lack of organization or arrangement of something, like writing and formation which have a better looking when it

Help me with my transliterating Korean name!

Hello, all! I have a name (both first and last) that is generally hard to pronounce for speakers of other languages and even some English speakers. So, no matter what language I've learned, I have had to find myself an appropriate name in that language.

In French, I use a rough French transliteration of my name: Adeline

In German, I have few issues with my regular name.

In Chinese, my name is 施蕾. I really love my Chinese name the most and thought that that would be easiest to transliterate into Korean.

Dear redditors on this subreddit, As a Korean redditor, I really appreciate your interest to Korean language and culture. I can see that many redditors here often get confused with some grammar and spelling issues, and that's absolutely normal — even Korean people make some mistakes.

Spelling issues:

  1. 낫다/낮다/낳다 Because they are pronounced very similar, some people get confused with these words. They are like the people who don't know the difference between "your" and "you're".
  • "낫다" means something better or getting cured. examples:
  • "감기가 다 나았어" = "I got rid of cold"
  • "이 방법이 더 나은 것 같다" = "I think this solution sounds better"
  • "낮다" means something low. examples:
  • "아직도 낮은 단계에 있다" = "It's still on low level"
  • "낮은 음조를 띄고 있다" = "It has low tone"
  • "낳다" means giving birth to babies or laying eggs. example:
  • "닭이 알을 낳고 있다" = "Hens are laying eggs"
  1. 안-/않- Both are prefixes used for negative sentences. Which one to use depends on which word you choose to use. "않-" is a sum

My First Korean Speaking Experience

Last night I had my first interaction in Korean and it was super scary and exciting at the same time. It was at a small Korean restaurant and after I said "감사합니다" the waiter thought I was Korean (I'm Chinese/Vietnamese so it's a reasonable assumption I guess) and we talked briefly. There aren't many Koreans where I live so I don't have too many opportunities to practice speaking in person. One of my fears is if people assumed I was Korean and started speaking over my head. That would be kind of embarassing, but that's part of the learning experience I suppose.

North Korean vs South Korean language question - just out of curiosity

I was in Los Angeles Korea town about a month ago and I was trying to practice my Korean on one of the waitresses. Then another waitress came by to tell me that I shouldn't learn Korean from that waitress because she is from North Korean and they don't speak "proper" Korean. Then the owner overheard our conversation and made it a point to come to our table to tell us that that's not true - it's the same language with different accent. She did emphasize that some English words that are adopted in modern South Korean language might not be understood by North Koreans- but that's not a great barrier. One just needs to take a second to explain the word and they're good. So who is right? When I watch youtube video of North Koreans in South Korea, they don't seem to have any problem speaking to each other. Seriously, they both sound Korean to me. I get that accent might be different - just like somebody from Texas and Colorado would not sound the same. But they definitely wouldn'

Is This a Fair Assignment for a 2nd Semester Course in Korean?

Hello all,

I am currently a college student in the USA who is in his second sequence of Korean (KOR 102). In a little over a month, I will be giving a speech that is completely in Korean and by memory.

Is this a reasonable assignment for a student who is only in his second semester of Korean? I ask this because at the moment, I am having many difficulties directly translating this speech into Korean.

For reference, my class uses Integrated Korean Beginning 2: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0824883314/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

How do I relearn Korean?

I'm Korean who was born and raised in Canada. Korean was my first language but once I started school English became my primary language. Im 22 now and ive forgotten so much! I can understand about 90% of what is said to me, I can't spell, I can read but don't fully understand what the words mean, and I have a pretty hard accent now :/

I don't know how to talk to people in a casual manner, the way you would a friend. I was only taught the formal way, like how you would speak to someone older than you. I'd like to relearn the formal way but I have no idea where to start. Any suggestions? Any resources? How often should I study? I live with my mom and she only speaks korean to me, i've been making a conscious effort to only speak korean back but its embarrassing haha

EDIT: Thanks guys I found my study partner! If you guys are still looking for a study buddy feel free to message other people who also commented!

Ever since I jumped back into studying Korean, I have tried lots of different resources, found one that works best for me, found a study partner, and have been consistently sticking to a schedule.

The study system that worked for us was the "how to study Korean" lessons. I bought all the lessons so I can have the full PDF in order to print it out and I binded it into a study book.

She is no longer able to study with me, and we were splitting chapters because she was to busy to do entire chapters so we only got to chapter 3.

I would still consider myself very much at the beginner level, with a very low vocabulary, and am looking for a study partner at a beginner level as well.

I would email you the book, let you get the chapter 3 (22pages), and we would continue studying together from there, over video chat, and preferably entire chapte

Korean is my first language, but I'm not very good due to living in the US all my life. How can I improve?

Hello everyone,

I'm currently 17 years old. I moved to the US from a young age, but Korean is my first language. Obviously, living in the US and barely using Korean means my Korean is way behind my English. I'm not sure exactly how to describe my Korean level, but reading and writing is hard since I never do that, but speaking and listening is better.

I feel like my main problem is vocabulary, although I'm not for sure if that is my problem. I can watch Korean videos and somewhat understand it since I know the grammar, but I just don't know a lot of the words.

How would you recommend improving? I'm a little less concerned about my writing ability, but I'd definitely like to be able to understand more Korean speaking. Also, is there a way to test my current skill so that maybe I can exactly see what I need to improve in?

What is your Korean learning experience with your romantic partner / spouse? Is it bad or good?

I have read tons of NEGATIVE posts / comments regarding 'learning Korean with Korean spouses.'

-The most plots are the same:

  1. 외국인 tried to learn Korean with his/her spouse and asks questions
  2. 한국인 spouse tried helping them with Korean at first
  3. but the 한국인 easily became overwhelmed or tired of explaining Korean grammar rules and differences between words with similar connotations. Sometimes, the 한국인 got mad and just told 외국인 to memorize everything without understanding.
  4. 외국인 also got mad because of 한국인's distasteful (sometimes disdainful) attitude.
  5. The cooperation ended up dispute and fighting.
  6. 외국인 stopped learning 한국어.
  • I understand the difficulty of Korean language 한국어, but I am quite surprised by that the Koreans acted unfriendly to those who tried understanding and accepting language differences.
  • Are the most Korean spouses unfavorable for their 외국인 spouses who want to try learning Korean?

How “difficult” are the Harvest Moon games to read in Korean?

I see a lot of people recommend the harvest moon games for people learning Japanese, since apparently despite being dialogue heavy in some places they are quite simple to understand, unlike longer complicated RPGs.

I have the new Friends of Mineral Town game and it has Korean language support, and I’m wondering if it’s a reasonable goal to aim to be able to play the game in Korean by the end of the year? I’m about A2 level proficient after studying for 3 months. I realize language learning is not a linear process but I’m trying to set some realistic and motivating tangible goals. “I want to be fluent in Korean” isn’t a workable goal for me since I need a way to measure said fluency.

Thank you!

  • Commonly used among youngsters and elders as well.
  1. 너무 귀여워! 창문 뿌시고 싶어! (It's) too cute! (I want to) destroy/break the window!
  • Used among K-pop fans. Please note that 뿌시고 싶어 is a colloquial way of saying 부수고 싶어. 뿌시고 싶어 has more intense feeling than 부수고 싶어.

At times, Korean feels like English.

I've been studying Korean for about 14 months now. Starting about maybe 6 months ago there are times where I'll be listening to the teachers talking in Korean or listening to a news segment and the stuff that I'm listening to feels like I'm listening to it in English (my 모국어). The kicker here is, I don't understand what I'm listening to it, at least not 100%.

Does anyone else have this experience? It would make more sense to feel this way if I understood 90-100% of what I'm listening to, but sometimes I feel this way even if I understand less than 50%.

[Tips for Korean learners] 완벽 and 완성. How are they different?

Hello! TTTempting everyone! This is the Korean Grammar Doctor!

안녕하세요! 여러분! 한국어 문법 의사입니다!

.

.

One day, my girlfriend and I talked about my to-do list. I just finished an assessment of fulfillment of my plans, and my girlfriend asked me '(계획 세운 것 중에) 몇 퍼센트 완성했어요?' I said that 완료 was a correct word for her sentence, but she didn't know the difference between 완성 and 완료. I started to look up information for explanation and I would like to share it with you TTTempting people.

.

.

완성 and 완료 are translated as the same word: completion. However, they have different connotations.

.

완성 puts a focus on the result / outcome / fruition. it is interchangeable with '만들었다 OR 다 ~~ verb +ㅆ다.'

.

작품을 완성했다. = 작품을 만들었다.

소설을 완성했다. = 소설을 다 썼다.

발표에 쓸 PPT를 완성했다. = PPT를 만들었다.

노래 1곡을 완성했다 = 노래 1곡을 다 지었다. / 노래 1곡을 만들었다.

Hi, guys~

I'm Korean and when I watch Hollywood movies, I sometimes hear Korean language.

So I found some Hollywood stars who spoke Korean in the movie.

[Black Panther]

The movie 'Black Panther' was filmed in Busan, Korea,

so, one of the main actresses, Lupita Nyong'o, tried to speak Korean in this movie.

Her Korean pronunciation was really great,

especially, when she said '아잉~', it was just like native Korean.

Funny thing was she spoke better Korean than (fake)Korean actress.

You know, many Asian actors/actresses who acts Korean role in Hollywood movies,

usually they are not even Korean(some of them are Korean-American, Chinese, Taiwanese etc..)

and they don't know how to speak Korean.

[Yes Man]

This movie was really popular in Korea because Jim Carrey speaks Korean in the movie.

His Korean line was quite long (about 2~3 minutes)

and I don't say his Korean is as good as Lupita Nyong'o,

but I think he practiced Korean so hard and he acted the way Koreans talk

I'm embarrassed of my Korean speaking level...

여러분 안녕하세요,

So, my background... I spent more than 7 years living in Korea, I completed KIIP program (귀화용) and I managed to pass level 4 on TOPIK exam. Most of the time I prefer to study Korean on my own using textbooks. But my problem is that I cannot say anything meaningful without thinking for too long.

Most of "Korean interaction" I get is from convenience stores or restaurants. My coworkers prefer to use English and all my Korean friends are fluent in English too. None of them want to use Korean with me. I guess I take too long to reply to any of their questions and I make too many mistakes.

I understand everything people say, but I find it extremely difficult to form a sentence without thinking. I have to write it in my head and then say it out loud.

At this point, I don't really know how to start speaking Korean. Do you have any advice? Is there any good textbook with sample conversations?

Speaking Korean is polarizing to Koreans as you get better

In my experience, I feel like practically all Koreans are very enthusiastic about foreigners speaking a LITTLE Korean. When you can say a few phrases and make some simple sentences you are seen as cute, charming, friendly, etc.

But, I noticed as I moved beyond intermediate and began doing some translation work and having real conversations and maintaining work / personal relationships entirely in Korean the dynamic with new people shifted. Like I said, it became really polarizing.

When I spoke Korean people either loved it and I got positive feedback galore and people instantly warmed up to me OR... on the other end of the spectrum a few people had extremely negative reactions and even got offended, like my use of Korean was something suspicious or an attack on their English skills or something. A good number of times I have been aggressively told things like:

- Just speak in English

- You sound like a talking dog (he was nice enough to tell me this in Korean lol)

Korean for International Work

Hello!

I’m learning Korean in preparation for a year long traveling work group. Me and 99 other Americans are traveling with a group of 200 Korean professionals around the world and I’d love to be able to interact and speak with most of them in Korean.

The main issue is that we will only be in Korea for about 2-3 weeks before we move on to other countries so learning how to read the language isn’t a priority. We will continue to travel for 7 months after Korea. For the most part I would just like to be able to talk and listen due to the amount of communication that is required.

Is there any recommendations that you guys have that would help me?

Edit: Clarification, I will be traveling with them for 7 months after Korea.
