Beanie level: Entertainer-in-training

It’s over. GOT7 successfully completed their first US national TV appearance. I was so nervous the whole time, especially when they started doing a brand new ENGLISH version of Eclipse! I’ll post the full thing once it’s up on Youtube 💚💚💚💚💚💚💚

GOT7 will have their first US national television appearance today at 10 am (10 hours from now) on NBC’s Today Show! It’s going to be NBC’s first time having a kpop group on their show. I hope everything goes smoothly and they ask them good questions. I’m so excited but also so nervous for GOT7 💚💚💚💚💚💚💚 According to NBC’s site, over 5 million people watch their show 😱 That’s a lot of potential new ahgases 💚🐣

    @oppafangirl @waadmay Today I’m going to transcribe yesterday’s video in Korean because there were a lot of words I didn’t know and I want to see if I can spell them correctly. Tomorrow, I will compare my transcript to the actual subs to see how close I got and also translate the whole thing.

I\’m having trouble with Rabbit again. It logged me out for some reason and now says they want me to verify my email but I\’m not getting an email from them. Any ideas?

The first half of today\’s episode was so cute but it seemed like it didn\’t transition well to the second half. I wanted more cute beach scenes, not office politics.
I\’m confused about a few things:
1. Why did the chauffer try to kill Do Min Ik if he was only sent to get the USB? Was he actually trying to kill him?
2. Why did Gal Hee\’s siblings crash her date with Min Ik? At first I thought they might be trying to get Min Ik and Gal Hee to spend the night together but they ended up all staying together.
3. Why did Do Min Ik withdraw his CEO application?

I wish I was Gi Dae Ju. Everyone wanted to give him free stuff today 😄

    1) He was never trying to kill him. Do Min Ik getting injured was purely an accident.
    2) I think they were just trying to take advantage a little (maybe get some free food, lol) and also be a little bit nosy. That’s apparently something siblings do, although I wouldn’t know as I’m an only child. It was kind of annoying to watch for me personally, but dramas seem to really enjoy writing nosy siblings, so what can you do?
    3) He withdrew his application in exchange for the secretaries getting the chance to defend themselves and bargain for better treatment at the company/permanent employment. Which I’m not sure I trust his uncle to follow through on, but at least Do Min Ik is attempting to make a selfless gesture. I can appreciate that.

    I think we probably all wished we were Dae Ju this episode, lol. Free buildings for everybody!

      Thanks for responding!
      1. I know Min Ik falling over the rail and getting face blindness was accidental but didn’t the chauffer pull a knife on him? To me, that looked like he wanted to hurt/kill him.
      2. That makes sense 😄
      3. Oh yeah. I forgot about that. I wonder if he has a back up plan so he can still become CEO. He would be a much better CEO than his evil uncle.

      1

        I think he only meant to scare/injure him, not almost kill him or cause him any serious damage, but the situation got away from him before he could stop it (as it will when you’re attempting to steal from someone and have no valuable skills in that arena). I’m saying this, of course, based his own recent statements about not meaning to seriously hurt Min Ik. Before that reveal, yeah, it appears like he was trying to kill him.

        And I’m pretty sure Min Ik’s looking at this as a permanent thing. He gives up being CEO, the secretaries get their jobs back and permanent employment, and then he marries Gal Hee, they move to the ocean, and open a popular mom and pop restaurant. (He probably hasn’t thought this far ahead, but that’s okay, because I’ve already done it for him.)

        6
        1

        3. Min-Ik told Dae Ju that he had a plan, and Dae Ju seems to be the type of guy who would want Min-Ik to be the CEO. So I’m guessing we haven’t seen the whole plan pan out yet.

    I didn’t get the post-sex/morning-after scenes I wanted from Dae-Ju and Veronica today but their entire exchange basically proved they’re both rabbits. Haha The sex was so good she wanted to give him a building?! Dae-Ju also refused the car because biking strengthens his thighs?! I died. 🀣🀣🀣

    A long time ago, a brother and sister lived with their mom. One day, the mom went to do ??? ‘Kids, mom is going to meet and buy ??? so look after the house well.’ ‘Yes.’ Mom finished and was coming home when suddenly she met a tiger. (No clue what the tiger said.) Mom quickly gave ??? to the tiger. The tiger ate ??? and even ate mother. (I’m missing a few words but I think that’s the general idea). The tiger put on mom’s clothes and said ‘Let’s go to the house where the siblings are’. ‘Kids, mom is back.’ ??? Mom’s voice sounded strange. They looked through the door (?) but what was a tiger doing wearing mom’s clothes? (I’m missing more words) ‘Quickly, ??? let’s hide up above in the tree.’ The kids ??? The tiger ??? The tiger saw their ? faces in the well. ‘Kids, how did you get in there?’ The kids laughed. On that breeze, a leaf ??? ‘So, you climbed the tree!’ The tiger tried to climb the tree but it wasn’t easy. ??? It’s easy. Because of what he said, the tiger applied ??? and said ‘Let’s go up.’ But he slid down. Boom. He slid down again. Boom.

    ‘Aigoo!’ ‘If he ??? he can come up,’ the younger sibling said accidentally while laughing. The tiger found the axe (I only got that it was an axe from the video. I didn’t know the word for axe). While ??? he climbed up. The siblings were scared. They closed their eyes and ??? God, please lower ??? From the sky, ??? came down. The siblings rode the rope and went up into the sky. The tiger too ??? But this time, ??? The tiger was going up ??? He fell to earth. Like this, the dongsaeng who went up into the sky became the sun and the oppa became the moon.

    Today I’m going to try translating yesterday’s video by listening. When I did it yesterday, there was a lot of vocab I didn’t know so I had to look at the Korean subs but today I will attempt to do it just by listening. I’ll skip the first few sentences because I already did those by ear yesterday.

    In the old days, in the distant past, they say it was around the Goryeo era, someone saw a whale give birth and then eat seaweed. However, he saw that after eating seaweed, the childbirth wounds were totally healed. After that, people started eating seaweed soup after giving birth. A woman who gives birth, in other words, a mother, eats seaweed soup directly after giving birth. I also ate seaweed soup right after I gave birth.

    Actually, they say that seaweed has blood cleansing and wound healing properties. When you give birth, they say you lose a lot of blood and nutrients. So since it has lots of nutrients snd cleanses blood, people started making seaweed into soup and eating it. Then why did people start eating seaweed soup on their birthdays? The reason is we should always be grateful to our moms for giving birth to us so people started eating seaweed soup. Everyone, do you have a memorable birthday? I remember a birthday from when I was in elementary school. I opened my eyes in the morning but there wasn’t any seaweed soup. And there weren’t any presents either. My mom firgot my birthday. I remember crying. Of course, on other birthdays, I ate seaweed soup, had a birthday party and ate cake.

    Just out of pure curiosity, do you have a goal in learning Korean? Time wise and also what you plan to use it for (besides watching dramas with no subs as is my plan)?

    1
    1

      I just plan to keep on learning until I become fluent. I think it will take at least another couple of years. I don’t plan on ever going to Korea so I mostly just want to be able to watch kdramas and kpop without subs. Kpop is actually a slightly bigger motivation because some stuff never ends up being subbed at all. Also, I’ve always wanted to be bilingual but never was interested enough in a language to learn it for fun. But Korean is such a fascinating language that it is really fun to learn. I’m hoping that maybe one day it will be useful in my everyday life but I kind of doubt that 😄

Nam Bo Won has mentioned that since Yeong Goo is behaving in ways he wasn\’t programmed to, it might be placing a strain on his system. I\’m wondering if we\’ll get a robot version of a terminal illness 😂 Maybe Yeong Goo will \’die\’ and this will give us a different ending from what we\’ve seen before. We\’ve seen human-ends-up-with-human-who-played-robot (in IANAR) and human-ends-up-with-robot (in AYHT). This time, will they give us a main character who ends up single and happy?

    What! I was joking when I said that Young Gu may be terminally ill. That would make this a complete makjang! I am sure there will be a fix.
    Okay, I am having terrible thoughts of a dramatic bed scene. Better stop here.

      If Nam Shin III could basically come back from ‘dead’ I’m sure Yeong Goo will probably manage to survive somehow too 😄

        I’m looking forward to something a la Transcendence, where Young-gu uploads his consciousness into another robot or something like that. Here’s hoping the uploaded consciousness doesn’t go full Johnny Depp and try to kill everyone.

    This time, I will talk about birthdays. Everyone, in Korea on your birthday, you have to eat this. What is it? Did you think it was cake? No, it’s not cake, it’s seaweed soup. Seaweed soup. In Korea on your birthday, you have to eat seaweed soup and rice for breakfast. When did people start eating seaweed soup and why? I was curious too so I looked it up.

    And that’s the end of the easy part. I think I’m going to have to look at the Koreans subs (while trying not to read the English ones for the next part so I’ll do that separately.

    With looking at Korean subs:
    They say it was a long, long time ago during the Goryeo era. One day someone saw a whale give birth and then eat seaweed. After eating the seaweed, the whale’s birth wounds were all healed. From that time, people started eating seaweed after giving birth. A woman who gave birth, in other words, a mother, would give birth and then eat seaweed soup directly after. I also gave birth and then ate seaweed soup immediately. Actually they say seaweed has the effect of cleansing your blood and and healing wounds. When you give birth, you bleed a lot and lose a lot of nutrients.

    Had to take a break because my brain got tired of translating but I’m back 🎉

    Since it has a lot of nutrients and cleanses your blood, people started boiling seaweed into soup. Then why did people start eating seaweed soup on their birthdays? The reason is it means we are always thankful to our mothers for giving birth to us so we started eating seaweed soup. Everyone, do you have a memorable birthday (accidentally saw subs). I remember a birthday when I was in elementary school. When I opened my eyes in the morning, there was no seaweed soup. And there were no birthday presents either. My mom forgot my birthday. So I remember crying. Of course on other birthdays, I ate seaweed soup, had a party and ate cake.
