I decided to start a Korean learning series on YouTube. The idea was that it would sort of chronicle my learning experience, organize it, and help me to reinforce what I’ve learned so far while also giving me opportunity to practice speaking Korean.
I feel so alone being the only one in my life even remotely interested in Korea.
There’s more videos to come in the future (some have already been made). Check the video’s description for relevant information and links for further learning.
I’m using my decks on TinyCards to go along with the series as well: tiny.cards/users/figbeater

    Awesome! Your pronunciation seems really good!

    Thanks @Eden, this is amazing! And your lowkey acting, so cute, hee! I’m so happy to realize that I recognize quite a lot of common sentences, I’m going to watch this on a loop and do the thing with google translator, never ocurred to me, also, thanks for the cards! My reading is slowly improving, so I’ll surely use them for practicing

      Awesome! I’m glad you found it useful. Some of these phrases I wish I knew when I first started learning because I couldn’t get them to come up on google translate. For instance, 좋다 (joh-da). That one took me forever to realize what they were saying in those instances when the weather was nice or they felt good.

        I’ve been using lingodeer! It’s all game based and it’s actually quite addictive, when I’m bored I just cram in a 5 minutes practice or a grammar revision. I like it that it works on a building blocks logic: it feeds you gradually words and grammar structures and combines them in different ways, so that you don’t forget past lessons and manipulate the language instead of repeating the same sentences over and over again… But LD has two obvious limitations for me: oral practice and reading practice, so your materials and GT suggestion are really useful to me, thanks!

          I’ve heard of LingoDeer before but I could’ve sworn it wasn’t free. Now it looks like it is? Or is only some content free? It seems like a good way to hear pronunciation and test your learning progress. Duolingo is very similar.

            LD has a subscription fee, I chose 40 USD/year. Yes, you get to hear a lot of the language -syllables, words, sentences, short videos- and, as I said, it’s all about short games. You get to test your knowledge after every 4 or 5 lessons, but you can choose practice tests and vocabulary/grammar revisions too whenever you want… I don’t think you can get to be fluent by using this method (or any other that doesn’t envolve having frequent contact with another fluent speaker – as in language classes or going to Korea, *wink*), but it’s a very cost- and time-effective way to get the basics

    That’s my second favorite song from that OST. Infact I love almost all the songs and soundtracks from the drama.

When The Camellia Blooms had such a great array of characters. And to think I almost passed this one up.
Now I\’m watching Catch Yoo Ryung while waiting for Love\’s Crash Landing to air.

I’m sad that A Day Found By Chance has ended. I haven’t felt so connected to a drama since 30 but 17. It was a drama I felt like I would have written if I was a webcomic artist or drama writer.
It easily made my top 10, finally pushing School 2013 out.

I\’m still here. I\’ve just been binging When The Camellia Blooms 🙂
Btw, is Melting Me Softly worth finishing? I was thinking about dropping it because I really don\’t care about the characters.
I think the crazy ex boyfriend was the only thing keeping me interested but he\’s become less crazy.

Btw, The K2 is on Netflix and it shows me a clip every time I log in…It’s tempting me to rewatch but I can’t…Too many dramas. But its one of my top top favs at #4 on my list.

    A lot of people didn’t like K2 but I personally really liked it and am also tempted to rewatch. I just wish they didn’t have the romance in it as I found the relationship and interactions between Kim Je Ha (Ji Chang Wook) and Choi Yoo Jin (Song Yoon Ah) so much more compelling and interesting then with Ko An Na (Im Yoon Ah). The romance felt completely unnecessary and shoe-horned in. Yoon Ah also couldn’t carry her weight next to the much more skilled JCW and SYA. But outside of the poorly done romance I loved everything else about K2.

      Yeah the romance was the big flaw. But even that had some cute scenes. I also remember not liking the PTSD aspects of both of the leads because they didn’t make sense.

Even though I enjoyed Be Melodramatic in the 2nd half, I was unsatisfied by the ending.
So, I wouldn\’t recommend the drama, but I definitely recommend Hell is Other People <3

    May I ask what disappointed you? Because I also had a few issues with the last episode.

    2
    1

      Well throughout the entire show, the writer/director relationship and their characters in general annoyed me. They were immature and over-the-top. But other than that, I really liked the other love stories but they were left incomplete. Where did that love interest even come from in that last episode for the one with the kid?? And it really annoyed me that the one dude (who was shown to be her love interest through the entire show) will possibly end up with his ex again…it was a really unhealthy relationship and it should have just ended. Really, the story line that really got me to watch the drama was the documentary director and her trying to get over her deceased boyfriend (which was hard because he was so perfect). And then her finding a guy that’s in the same place mentally as she is. Oh and also the celebrity/body guard/manager relationship 🙂

        I find it interesting that you found the characters immature and over-the-top. Because that’s EXACTLY how I’d describe them but that’s why they are so relatable to me. They’re like overgrown kids, and that’s pretty much how the unmarried urban youth is in my life (I’m also btw, just a few months short of 30). I’m pretty much exactly like these characters. 😀

        Different perspectives & all that, just wanted to say I have the same words but I use them fondly because they’re so relatable to me.

          I understand that XD I’m the same age, but my personality is closer to the characters that I liked, so I don’t relate to the writer/director storyline. But yeah, it depends on the person watching, who they’ll relate to or won’t relate to.

    There are definitely some things that could’ve been done better with Melo’s ending and some things definitely confused me. I loved it but I wouldn’t defend what went wrong with how the last ep and the characters were set up because it also took me some time and some rewatching to accept the ending.

    Glad that you’re still enjoying LMHYS but I’ll warn you that the show (sadly) drags from ep 11 onwards. And yay! Rookie Historian on your list!

      I would like Be Melodramatic a lot more if it wasn’t for the writer / director story line. I don’t like those characters, but they seem to be the main focus :/

        I agree, but I’m trying to ignore their excessive immaturity as much as possible. I hope as the drama progresses their characters settle down a bit.
