While I understand that the purpose of a tag-post is that you are asked to do it by being “tagged”. I am still going to fill it in, pretty sure Hangukdrama won’t mind!

1. Why Korean?

The hardest and most predictable question of all. I got into StarCraft and Korea was the best at it. It got me into the music and culture. The language sounded so awesome and I was fascinated by the characters. After trying to pickup 한글 for fun (which only took me a few days) I kind of went on to study more.

2 . Daum or Naver (dictionary I mean)?

Naver

3. First website that you visit everyday?

Teamliquid

4. Best thing that happened to you? (related to learning Korean)

The amount of respect I received for actually trying (and succeeding) in having conversations and asking questions during my stay in Korea.

5. Ever regretted learning Korean?

Not yet, I regret not working harder though.

6. Most common feedback/question you get when you say you are learning Korean?

“Why?”. Not sure if I can blame people for it, but it’s kind of annoying I guess.

7. First Korean food that comes to your mind?

비빔밥. It’s so easy to make, cheap everywhere but oh my… so good!

8. Most overrated Korean drama?

Dream High 2, that was just really bad and should not be watched. (Quit like 2 eps in.)

9. Most underrated Korean drama?

I’ll be fair, none come to mind. Probably because I have not watched enough of the more unknown stuff. I’d say a weekend drama but they are all so long that I never finish them.

10.Latest milestone in learning Korean?

Releasing a Korean Indie game on the Korean app stores.

11. Favorite Korean word / phrase?

똑똑하다. There is something about a sound like knocking on a door, (“Ttok Ttok”, don’t mind me while I cringe from using romanization), that means to be smart / intelligent. So funny!

12. Name 3 people (fictional / real) who motivate / influence your Korean learning journey

Hangukdrama, she’s been there and done that. It’s great to know that it’s possible with the right mindset and I hope to follow her towards fluency!

I’ll be slightly unfair, I want to name all the wonderful people that I met in Korea. I’m learning to communicate with them better too!

13. Secret ambition / goal (relating to Korean)

Being part of a Korean game development team!

14. I want to sound like _____ when I speak Korean

Kim Jong Kook, hahaha!

15. Best compliment received (for Korean)

(From restaurant owner without menu with pictures). 와… 영어 필요없습니다! (Wow, No English necessary!)

16. When is the last time you sat down and study Korean?

Today!

17. Favorite textbook?

Grammar in Use, to be fair I haven’t used many other textboos but it’s just really well structured.

18. Special people you met (online or otherwise) through Korean?

All the people I met in Korea and my iTalki Korean teachers.

19. How has learning Korean changed you / your life?

I don’t watch American shows anymore, and in the rare occasion that I do I have Korean subtitles.

Korean keyboards on all my devices.

My search engine is now Google Korea

I’ve started using the typical Korean sounds. For example when acknowledging what people say or the sounds of frustration.

20. Ever dreamt in Korean?

Yes.

21. Single best thing about learning Korean?

Picking up something new in a song you know or a movie you’re watching again. Basically the realization that you’ve learned something new without immediately realizing it.

    Hello. I see that you don’t update your site too
    often. I know that writing content is boring and time consuming.

    But did you know that there is a tool that allows you to create new articles using existing content (from article
    directories or other pages from your niche)?
    And it does it very well. The new posts are unique and pass the copyscape test.
    You should try miftolo’s tools
