They are very very very far from being anywhere near popular, unfortunately.
Sam is good at English because he’s a native speaker. It’s amazing that Teo and Yun are able to pronounce English as well as they can while singing, though they can’t really speak it at all. (Especially Teo.)
They don’t have that much popularity at all…? Most people probably wouldn’t know who they were if you asked about them…
I don’t know, to be quite honest. ;; I work translating and doing English content writing!
I wouldn’t exactly say Korean people are ‘respectful’, not most of the time… haha… ;; But they are very nice once you get to know them.
The morning is better! Afternoon you might have better chances with prerecordings, but you wouldn’t be able to get in the live, and it’s also in the way of later prerecordings, etc. :3
The 8 level course goes a bit slower and focuses more on problems that English speakers (or speakers of languages that are very different from Korean) have when learning the language. The 6 level course is faster and more aimed towards people with languages similar to Korean or with similar concepts (Japanese with grammar, Chinese with hanja) or people who are good with languages to start with.
You can always start in one course and move up or down to another if it’s too fast or slow.
I don’t know if there’s any that are only one month whenever… You would have to match up with a course. There are short term courses in the summer and winter vacation months for most schools, but you’d have to look up the schools yourself. ;; Yonsei has one for sure, I don’t know about Sogang or others…
I don’t know where you got that from, but that’s not true… There is a nearly nation-wide wifi service called “olleh wifi”, but you have to have a Korean smart phone with the company olleh to be able to use it. So unless you rent a phone, it’s not really usable.
There is more wifi available in cafes and such, but not just everywhere. It’s very inconvenient to not have a smart phone with 3G/4G in Korea.
I don’t know, they haven’t said where yet. When information is out it will be on the fancafe~.
Yes, I am, and yes I have! :D Thank you for asking. ;o; ♥
I honestly haven’t seen non-K-pop fans talking much about MBLAQ’s new song or album. (Quite a few K-pop fans seem to be a bit disappointed in the quality of the album as compared to their last one.) I haven’t actually gone to a music show they’ve been at yet, though, so I can’t judge myself what it’s like live…
Most people probably aren’t even aware of the song or who it’s by. ;; EXO isn’t that popular or well known in Korea, especially among people who aren’t K-pop fans (= most of the general public.)
You have to buy at the Hottracks store listed. So if it says Jamsil, the Jamsil Hottracks. If Busan, the Busan Hottracks, etc.
It’s way different this year than last year! Last year they held applications in February~March, and sent them out before the 2nd Generation officially ‘started’, so we got the cards at the very end of May/beginning of June. There were no real ‘goods’, just a small photo booklet that came with the card that wasn’t really any new photos.
They haven’t said anything about when they’re sending them out this year.
If you go to areas with a large amount of foreigners, or ones who have signs that advertise English speaking staff, usually they’ll have someone who can speak a decent amount of English. Most, however, do not!
