끝까지 들어 is a phrase I’ve always been confused about. I figured I’d finally do what should have been obvious…but wasn’t. I went to the Naver dictionary. 끝까지 by itself means “to the end” and 들어 is where this phrase got confusing. It turns out 들어 is a verb that means enter but also hold, take, walk in, cut, and be sharp, according to Naver’s dictionary. ...

뭘봐 - M&D
뭘봐 =/= Close Ur Mouth. 뭘봐 = What are you looking at? 봐 is a rude-ish way of saying look, while 뭘 is a contraction that means what. Kind of like in English we say don’t for do not, that’s what 뭘 is. The English title is appropriate for the content of the song, however, please know that it is not a translation.
Your First Korean Word? (Featuring Old School...
I’m curious! For whoever wants to share, what was your first Korean word? The first word you understood and it brought that “OH MY GOSH I KNOW THAT WORD” moment. My “aha” moment came in a BoA song. …It was the word 하나 which means one. It was part of the word 하나로 but I knew hana so I was really excited. Yes, I’m showing my age…I’m...
Sorry, I’ve been away a couple of days. I’m caring for my cat who has gotten sick. :( Be back soon.
Understanding Korean Age (Part 2)

SMTown Paris - Le Monde Summary
SM Town Paris landed in Le Monde news. If you become familiar with anything French (outside a high school French class in most cases) you’ll hear Le Monde pop up at least once. Le Monde means “The World” it’s a daily newspaper that covers various things and world affairs. SM Town Paris landed in Le Monde and since my French is better than my Korean I decided to do a...
Understanding Korean Age (Basic Guide)
Ever been confused by Korean age? You’re not alone. If you’re reading this post expecting me to say “Everyone born the same year is chingu!” you’re mistaken. There’s more to Korean ages than that. For example Super Junior’s Kyuhyun was born in Feburary 1988 and Super Junior’s Ryeowook was born in June 1987 are in fact “chingu”...
Korean Vocabulary - 몇시예요?
몇시예요 - what time is it? 오전 - AM 오후 - PM 시 - hour, o’clock 분 - minutes Know how to combine? 4시15분 means it’s 4:15. It’s really that simple…unless, you want to make it hard by learning all the Sino-Korean and native Korean numbers to use instead. That will come in a later post. AM/PM aren’t really necessary if using 24 hour time but if using 1-12 you may want to...
On June 5th we became a month old from the “official” opening date. So, yay for that. Thank you for visiting and enjoying! I don’t know what else to say or do, I’m not very good with these things. I felt like I needed to say something though… 저는…행복해요. 아~ 몰라! 감삽니다. 일개월~ 코리어 디스트릭 파이팅 ❤ - 브리트니

New Ask Link (Google Docs)
I realized that with Tumblr’s ask box you have to have a Tumblr account for it. Not very convenient for outside users, is it? I have set up a Google Docs area where you can type in your questions instead. Because I am not having them sent to me through a site I use daily, I will answer any questions I receive around once a week. I have only gotten one this far but I am hoping for more....
That is Soshi's Tayeon, right?

These diets, however, get a lot of controversy from international fans and some of it is misinformed. That’s what this post is for. This post will cover Kara and Soshi since they are the two most known for their diets...
