a funny list I found on Facebook

Postby John » April 14th, 2008 9:39 am

for all those who like kpop, kdramas, and whatever else korean :] .. but as much as you wish for it, you ain't korean!

some characteristics you may have:

- you wish you had, or you actually have, those metal chopsticks ~I do have those

- you have kpop playing in the background.. right now! ~sometimes I do

- you've seen my sassy girl at least twice and you curse under your breath that they're making an english version of it ~EXACTLY true!

- you know that kim sam soon isn't just a person's name ~lol yeah ofcourse

- you've replied 'neh' or 'yeh' to someone's request ~honestly yes

- you really wanna yell out 'shirho!' just for the ***CENSORED*** of it ~not sure what that is

- you watch xman and wish your english friends could play dangyunhaji with you ~nope

- you love kimchi ~tried it but didn't really like it

... and korean bbq :]~oh yeah

- you appreciate that males in korea also get facial surgery (but then wonder what koreans actually look like if so many of them got surgery..) ~no

- you find it slightly amusing how harisu was once a man ~who?

- you know that tvxq = dbsk~don't actually...

- you know that bi is pronounced 'bee' and that 'rain' isn't just talking about the weather we're having right now~ofcourse

- mc yoo and kang ho dong are your secret lovers (jk! but they sure are funny!)~don't know them

and you love to go and buy cute korean accessories like pencils, and erasers, and paper!!~nope lol

and you practice writing any english words with korean characters, just cuz you can! ~very true

you want to answer your cell phone by saying "yobuseyo?"~yup!

when your friends speak korean, or when you go to korea, you expect subtitles..~lol nope

You know what "BASHA!" and "Aja Aja Fighting!" are =D~yup

No matter how many times you go to a Korean restaurant, you still find it fascinating that their spoons are so long! (even though you may own a couple yourself =P)~nope

you've tried to start a bokko dance craze at a club...but you only get a "is-that-guy-crazy" look from people around you.~no no no

you've read that list '50 things you learn from a korean drama' but despite that, you still continue to watch those repetitive-storyline dramas~never read it but I get the jist

-"Your going to see Speed Racer AND Ninja Assassin.. just because Rain is in it" Thanks for this one Ryan!~ WOOT

- "To seem cool, when driving by people, you blast Epik High or Drunken Tiger as loud as you can in your car stereo" (more from Ryan)~I don't blast it but .....

"You're glad that Rain and Se7en are finally coming to the US...but when they become mainstream, and everyone likes them, you'll be the only one in your group of friends to say 'I remember when they just started out in Korea'" (Ryan again!)~yup

"You think that if the Spice Girls can have a reunion concert...So can... H.O.T., Sechskies, and Turbo" (Ryan)~ who?

.. i'm sure there are many others so please list some and i will add them! :D

When I was little, I did not miss an episode of Speed Racer (even though I barely understood the plotlines). My daughter has no interest in it whatsoever...so I'm going to go see it by myself 8)

You know, at first I did force my family to watch K-Dramas (at the time it was Dae Jang Geum)...but then they got hooked, so I was successful in my evil plot to Koreanize them.

Hey, lets have a KoreanClass contest, and the winner gets a pair of those chopsticks!

Come to think of it, I have been saying Korean words randomly to my family. So that's why they've been looking so longsuffering these days...but hey, I managed to train my husband to say "Aigoo!" when he's frustrated, and he didn't even want to learn Korean (the evil plot continues... 8)

heehee, I'm glad you liked that one ^^

*a few days later* 언니 and 저 have succeeded! We have successfully koreanized 두 of 우리의 친구! (How's that for using korean XP) They were "exposed" to korean mvs just yesterday and they love it! 행복힙디다!

Now to just get them to want to learn korean too...

"koreanize" ㅎㅎㅎ, I like that word!

A KoreaClass contest? A pair metal chopsticks for a prize? sounds like my kind of thing! I'm all for it!! :)
