Chris, Jaesun...I thought I was the oldest, but it looks like I'm not! Fight the ajeossi title! No ajeossis here. No ajummas either. I am pushing forty, in Korean or US time...and anyone who calls me Ajumma will be attacked by an enraged woman wielding strong, heavy flamenco shoes with nails in the soles. You have been warned
What are the titles again, that you'd see in Dae Jang Geum, for instance? The ladies are Pu-in, and the gentlemen are Na-ri, or something sounding like that. Much better, yes?
On Skype, I'm nenuphar_ (just like that with the underline character ending)

Hi guys! Im new to KoreanClass101! I really love this site alot and I'm so going to subscribe to this. My name is Zhang Yong! You can simply pronounce it as Jang Yong. And yes, I'm a Chinese but I'm not from JongGuk. Anyone wanna guess where i'm from? xD I just turned 20 one and a half month ago~ Hope to know more people from KC101.com!
i'm 23 years old and my mom and sometimes other older korean women like to joke around with me and call me ajeossi. and even some of my korean friends too call me that for fun. ah..i'm so young yet so old lol j/k but it's cool tho i kno they just joking. i hope that I don't see anything in the news about you killing someone bouks.
I am a mere 48 years young - (I won't go into my korean age that would be depressing!) and I am certainly not an Ajuma!! - even though I am married and over 40 - do not have tattood eyebrows or have short permed hair!
I did find this on another site
"Ajuma: Technically, you are an ajuma as soon as you get married, but some younger wives may be insulted at being called this. Typically, an ajuma is an older woman (at least 40, married or not) who has short permed hair. Most of the time, they also have tattooed eyebrows and are fond of wearing visors. Ajumas have jokingly been called ` The Third ***CENSORED***` because you can't really tell if they are men or women."
So .. If anyone has a "kinder" way odf addressing me - please let me know!
I always say I am 21 at heart and as the saying goes - Growing up is optional but growing old is manditory!
