this video features 2 ex- video game addicts… it’s in korean and everyone’s korean lol.
I just find this topic interesting? of interest for me? sorta like with the hikkikomori thing. to some extenti just don’t undersatnd especially with my language learning interest. like i go OMG WTF you do that? you could use that teim to reach converstaional level in x-language or watch x tv shows…. that’s my way of thinking. so because I just cannot comprehend it i just want to find out more about it. I really feel like this show goes into details and the depth of the situation because the 2 ex-game addicts are talking for 47 minutes. it’s just a lot OF MEAT. none of the videos in english really go into depth… it’s just very shallow….. obviously it can only go deep if you have 2 ex- game addicts talking talking.
I don’t know if there’s a good medium for asking people to transcribe what people said in korean for korean-learners for english but for ajapense it’s pretty good… like there’s chiebukuro.
Like I said in my previous post. i’ll watch an interesting program in korean on youtube or bayflie korean or something and then write down time codes? of the line the i couldn’t catch so i can ask people on chiebukuro hey what’d they say. I don’t do this for every word because it becomes laborious and it depends on how much i give a crap too lol. and actually my korean is pretty good as in the ratio of I don’t know/ I do know is really good for learning via this. I don’t want to overestimate or anything but let’s say like 80% undersatnd/ 20% don’t undersatnd. It’s something like that so it’s definitely like a limbo like if i just keep watching without looking up words or also reading korean articles or korean books then i most likely will be stuck at this level forever. I reached this level from looking up words in the FIRST place. but at this point it’s like even if i don’t look it up i’m probably not missing out that much? the key word is PROBABLY. But anways from looking up the words… after I look it up I put it in anki and i see it and may or may not remember the definiton. I don’t put in the sentence because I feel like that’s cheating. so i just put in the unconjjugated verb/adjetive etc. but anki is just not effective because it’s used for EXTENDING your memory NOT forming your memory. definitely waching korean shows is more helpful than doing anki reviews. nonetheless some of the cards are extending my memory and some of them are brute-shove into my brain (not really since i just do my reviews lightly)… sometimes I can’t predict which ones will go into the latter… because when i look it up in that moment as i watch the show light bulbs go off and i go OOOH that makes so much sense or whatever but then a week later in my anki review I’ll be like wtf is this shit lol. so context and immersion is deinitely the best. I guess I wouldn’t be doing anki at all if iall did was watch korea nshows but unfortunately or fortunately i watch mad japanese shit lol.
I think I wrote about this before but i went from (this is not thourough)
start learning japanese → suck at learning japanese → found ajatt → ignored ajatt → found ajatt again → learned from song lyrics found awesome japanese stuf i love like music and also tv shows from youtube → did rtk → read japanese books/watch japanese tv etc etc → got pretty damn good with japanese (I don’t speak it fluently though of course but my intonation is GOOD) → started korean (I felt like I don’t learn much from japanese tv talk /variety. I still do to this way it’s just i learn less than i used to before)
now the reason for this hooplah is so that learning the kango words in korean will be HELL OF A LOT EASIER. I also discovered immortal song from youtube and I just thought wow what agreat show and amazing performances. I remember the first time I watchd it, it was a struggle like as far as understanding everything (the talking part of the show, not the singing part) the lines that the MC ALWAYS SAYS in every episode rather fast or wahtever just went over my head (now i have no problem following tha tsince i’ve heard it so many times and looked itup the first time. but then since he says it eveyr peisode i was like i should’ve just not looked it up lol). I didn’t recognize the kango words that i already know in japanese because yo know the readings are sorta different. so anyways from looking up words from this show and reading stuff in korean I picked up on the kango readings for korean… for most? of the top 2000 hanja kango reading to the point of recognition (It was just a gradual chill process… I don’t really care about korean like I do with japanese so it’s very slow and relaxed and just chill). I don’t speak korean lol.
and also along the way I looked up and learned some daily convresational korean.. as in words and adjectives that are used in daily convresational korean. why do i know it’s actually useful and used because I heard it from a korean person on a korean tv show talking about their lives and i looked it up. so after I find the meaning i realize why this word is USEFUL in the sense that it’s used in daily life so i will most likely see or hear it again to describe something that happened when somebody talks about whatever. It’s absolutely TRUE! I’ll look up a word and then it gets used and I go omgs i know what that means and the kanji and all that because I looked it up before and i heard it being used again. that’s what’s happening as i watch the video i’m watching now as well as other videos. that’s the awesomeness of common, daily conversation language in korean or japanese orenglish or whatever. It makes you feel like it’s so effortless because even if you don’t get it (remember it, internalize it) the first time, you most likely will the second time. I remember looking up so much crap /not looking up crap for the snsd show dangerous boys . you don’t undersatnd i didn’ tknow all the useful daily conversaitonal common korean at that time but i learned that korean from that show. it’s like that chicken and the egg argument. you can either try to drill as much korean from books or some anki deck and then hope that you’ll understand some native korean tv show fluently (NEVER IN A BILLION YEARS) OR you watch the korean show look up the crap you don’t undersatnd and keep watching and they will most likely use the words that you looked up time and time again. the drilling people i do not understated.
so anyways I found this video so interesting how the guys are just talking talking. I hate how in american talk shows they don’t let the guests talk… the host always has to say shit and the crap they say is crap that everyone has on their minds (it does not need to be said, everyone is ALREADY aware.) or they say something to emphasize something that again we ALREADY are aware of… i guess they treat the audience like idiots (those are americans for you lol) and or they love hearing their own voices (the talk show hosts). another factor is … maybe korean people are juts more articulate than the average joe american lol… so the guests can hold up their end of their conversation and articulate their thoughts and memories so well to the point that the talk show host or whoever has to interrupt and ask questions very minimally in comparison to american talk shows.
and you know if I didn’t know korean i wouldn’t know about the existence of this video and be able to gain their insights especially the part about the “withdrawal”?? very very shocking and very enjoyable ( as in entertaining and enlightening.. i feel like i’m gaining something from watching it) video and i wanted to share and sorta to also document my level/progress and also possibly have other korean learners go omg why you so much better than me (give them motivation, rivalry thoughts) or maybe there are korean learners who are better than me and have no absolutely no vocab to learn from this video at all or was able to catch everything that was said in the video ( I think it’s possible for korean learners to reach that level, they ain’t talking about rocket science)… good for them. 🙂
I will post the chiebukuro crap once people answer!
omg I was missing out some crucial details about the withdrawal syndrome!!! that’s why i like chiebukuoring 🙂

I love how in english, japanese, and korean there are multiple meanings to a word but the meanings are sorta similar … like you could use one meaning to remember the other meanings…. this stuff is especially heavy in korean so do take advantage of LITERAL meaning in korean to remember the intended or inferred meaning as much as possible.
