10 Korean Phrases You Should Learn Before Visiting Korea

Reblogged By: De De Tillman;  K-Pop – K-Drama Celebrity Blogger



Posted: Friday October 31, 2014 @ 6:16 p.m PST


Visiting Korea


1. 안녕하세요 (annyeonghaseyo) – Hello

The most basic thing you can say as a conversation starter is “hello.” Even if you don’t know how to strike up a full conversation with someone, it’s always useful to say hello when you’re entering a store or a restaurant.


2.  합니다 (joe-song-ham-ni-da) – Sorry

Not used to the way things work in Korea? In a rush and accidentally bump into someone? You can never go wrong with a simple “I’m sorry” if you’re ever stuck in an unfavorable situation.


3. 주세요 (ju-se-yo)  – Please/Please give me

When you’re asking someone in the store for something or ordering something on menu, say “juseyo” at the end of whatever you want and you’ll be sure to get it.


4. 반갑습니다 (ban-gap-sum-ni-da) – Nice to meet you

After striking up a conversation with someone after saying hello, it is polite to continue with, “nice to meet you” before you say anything else.


5. 잠시만요 (jam-shi-man-yo) – Give me a second/Hold on

Busy with a task while someone is bothering you to answer their question? To get them to stop talking for a moment tell them “jamshimanyo” which is equivalent to “hold on” or “give me a second.”


6. 감사합니다 (kam-sa-ham-ni-da) – Thank you

Just like in other countries, once someone does a favor for you, you must say “kamsahamnida” which is the formal method of saying “thank you.”


7.어디예요 (o-di-ye-yo) – Where is it

If you ever get lost in Korea and you’re looking for a specific place and you don’t know how to get there, don’t be afraid to ask someone where it is. Simple say the place or thing you are looking for, followed by “odiyeyo.” If you’re looking for Namsan Tower you would say “Namsan Tower + odiyeyo.”


8. 얼마예요(ol-ma-ye-yo) – How much is it

Similarly, if you’re looking to buy something but there’s no price tag on the object, simply say the name of the object followed by “olmayeyo” to ask how much it costs.


9. 이것 (i-geot) – This

When you don’t know how to read something on the menu but you like the picture that you see, you can still point out what you want. When you point out something specifically you say “i-geot” which means “this.”


10. 한국말 잘 못해요 (han-guk-mal jal mot-hae-yo) – My Korean isn’t very good.

Finally, if you ever feel like you will struggle to remember all these phrases, if someone approaches you to ask a question you can simply say, “han-guk-mal jal mot-hae-yo” which means “My Korean isn’t very good.” People in Korea study English in school so there is a chance that they will try to speak to in English instead.

On October 30th, the family members of Shin Hae Chul released their official statement regarding his death.  They stated that they would be pursuing a lawsuit against the hospital, for their alleged medical malpractice.

According to the relatives of Shin Hae chul, he received additional surgery without adequate explanation while undergoing his initial enteroplasty surgery.

Kim Hyungul, the representative for the family members had this to say:

“We heard from the doctors that he received stomach reduction surgery which we hadn’t been notified of before. It has been said that Shin Hae Chul himself voiced objection to the doctor regarding the non-consented surgery.”

The family members are claiming that although Shin Hae Chul went through pain and high fever after his surgery, the treatment by the hospital regarding Shin Hae Chul’s health was lacking.

Kim Hyungul:

“We believe that correct treatment and prescription wasn’t exercised after his surgery, when he was in pain with high fever.  The person who was previously healthy died five days after surgery. Of course we have to question the incorrect judgment of the hospital, and whether they should be responsible for his death.”

The family members are seeking responsibility from the hospital for the alleged mistreatment.

Regarding the family members’ statements, the hospital also released their own statement as well.

Hospital law representative:

“I am responsible for this case, but I am unable to confirm all of these claims. If they manage to use the court of law, we must also respond as well.”

Regarding the autopsy of the body, the family members stated that there won’t be any problems since there are already records from Hyundai Asan hospital.

The family members are expected to release their official statement regarding the matter tomorrow morning with their thanks to everyone who has sent their condolences.

Kris (Wu Yifan) Former EXO Unable To Find a New Entertainment Company

Former EXO member Kris has yet to sign with any label or agency contracts after leaving the group and pursuing his career in China, despite approaching some of the largest Chinese entertainment companies.Industry officials estimate that Luhan, who also recently filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment for the nullification of his contract, will also face similar obstacles as Kris.

It has been five months since Kris filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment and left to China. However, Kris is currently unable to find a new entertainment company.

According to Chinese industry officials, Kris first approached YUEHUA Entertainment, one of the top entertainment company in China, but was rejected when trying to land a contract. Kris later also met with Huayi Entertainment, but it seems that it wasn’t easy for him to get a contract. It seems that even the large companies, having the ability and power to shed Kris’s image as a “deserter” and make him a star, are hesitant in signing with him.

Because China doesn’t have South Korea’s idol developing and marketing system, China’s few large corporate like entertainment companies have a great deal of influence and power in the industry. But it seems that the two largest companies’ decisions not to sign with Kris will be a bump on the road for him in chasing the dream to become the “second Hangeng”. Former Super Junior member Hangeng (Hankyung) has reached the peak of his stardom in China after filing the same lawsuit against SM Entertainment back in 2009.
