South Korean movies sprung to global popularity through the success of Parasite (기생충 ㅣ gisaengchung), the Oscar-winning thriller and black comedy movie from 2019. However, Korean cinema has already been a hugely successful industry for decades within Korea.
Amazingly, Parasite isn’t even among the highest-grossing of all these Korean films! Of course, the film’s massive success makes it the highest-grossing South Korean film when all the worldwide ticket sales are accounted for.
I've made several videos already (and there are countless more online) about the Topic Marker and how to use it.
The Topic Marker is used for marking the topic of whatever conversation you're currently having - or an individual sentence. There are some things it's used for, and others it's not. This video is not going to be an explanation of how and when to use the Topic Marker.
Instead, this video is about what the feeling of the Topic Marker is, to help you better understand when you should or shouldn't use it.
I'm really enjoying making these episodes where I grade YOUR Korean abilities.
In this episode I grade Diana, who's one of my subscribers. I show what things she does well, and also how she can improve.
The particle (으)로 has a large variety of different usages, but one of the most common ways it gets used is to mean "Toward" or "Using."
Using (으)로 to mean "Toward" is pretty straightforward, but using it to mean "Using" is a bit different.
In a future live stream I'll also explain some more of the uses of (으)로, but this live stream focuses on how it means "Using."
I've seen many beginners who are learning Korean misuse 나 ("I," "me") together with the 니다 form (such as 입니다).
A common example could be this sentence, 나는 빌리입니다. While it grammatically makes sense, and there are situations where it can be used correctly, for the most part it's used incorrectly by learners and should be avoided completely.
Here's my explanation why it's wrong, how it may be used, and how to avoid making this mistake.
In this lesson, we will introduce you to Korean verbs! They are the most important part of most sentences in the Korean language, so you will want to learn and memorize as many different verbs as possible. Have fun learning these useful and common Korean verbs presented below!
Even as a beginning Korean learner in Korea, I remember being complimented frequently on my Korean. In fact, it seemed as though no matter how good (or poor) my Korean was, I would get compliments. In the beginning, this was very motivating to me, as I felt I was truly improving. However as time went on I started to feel that Koreans simply are surprised to hear any Korean - they're not as picky as I thought at first. It seemed that most native Korean speakers loved to hear when I was trying to speak their language.
In this article, we will be learning about how to say seasons in Korean. Possibly you’ve already checked our lesson for months in Korean, but we’ll also identify and describe what season takes place in those months.
My most recent live stream was about how to say "Or" in Korean.
In order to do this (it's a large topic), we needed to learn about several forms including (이)나, 거나, and 아니면.
We also learned a more efficient way to ask people to make choices using "Or," simply by splitting the question into two sentences.
