MUSINGS PART II
女のこと苦手芸人 was actually pretty good on AME TALK. I felt sad with them. Girls can be so cruel lol and sometimes they mean it, and sometimes they don’t they’re just being girls lol. I was thinking wow this “girl thing” total holds true in america as well. so interesting the girl thing just permeates cultures and countries.
I was sorta worried about this ep? From the title I wasn’t sure what it meant exactly as in what the ep will exactly tackle. I read someone’s thoughts on the ep on the internet.. it was a really brief thing a long time ago. the person wrote that the ep wasn’t what they expected and he/she was disappointed. But for me the ep was surprisingly really interesting and funny. It’s not because that person made me lower my expectations… ame talk just… depends on the topic and the geinin that are present with its quality.
jAPANESE I learned was abunch but one of them was
lol I love the way ken kobayashi said this. i can tell the meaning from the kanji that makes up the word kettaku and i’m sure i’ve seen it somewhere in writing but just seeing it used in spoken language just makes it that much more memorable and it really furthered my understanding. also there’s the thing with remembering stuff from hearing it vs. seeing it/reading it especially when it is said by a fluent japanese speaker in a rather heated moment lol. the japanese people just really got that rhytm/intonation down since they’re fluent in japanese lol. the more you get used to japanese the more i realize the beauty of japanese with the rhyt m and the intonation… like that show with nogizaka 46 where they read koten is just like music to my ears…. now i don’t know if the girls are making mistakes while they read it or if the staff caught all that and fixed it or not but let’s just say it sounds good. i really don’t think i sound as good as they do.. lke my intonation is good and i found my japanese voice but you know japanese is not my mother tongue. i feel like when you read japnaese out loud with koten or komonjo or whatever, if you’re not fluent in japanese it doesn’t sound as good even if you’re intonation is good. at least that’s how i feel about it. it’s just so different listening to them reading it vs. me hearing my voice trying to what they read. btw the girls probably have furigana… anyone and everyone needs furigana to read koten lol excdept for thse that love reading koten then they already know… ?
I was getting curious about the hanja thing with korea. I read about it a lot in japanese on the internet and in a book about the disadvantages and etc etc.
Now i’m curious about the korean stance and i’m curious how aware they are of the advantages of hanja vs only hanguel. I was watching
and it just pissed me off a lot lol. i was like so what are they gonna do when they show chinese children reading/writing chinese characters… start screaming at the top of their lungs?? they’re all geniuses then? it’s so dumb.
The part where they weere asking the other children about the hanja was so dumb. it’s like of course they don’t know it, you don’t know teach hanja to children anymore. WHAT THE HELL ELSE DO YOU EXPECT! they wre being so dramatic with the damn womenin the BGM?sound effect? going omgs when it’s just logic. they’re just omg learning hanja is so hard and impsosible and we’re SO DAMN LUCKY THAT WE DON’T HAVE TO LEARN IT. WIPPI DO. i’m just like no it’s not that hard, get the f over it. are you saying japanese/chinese people are a billion times smarter than you because they can read/write the chinese characters? I really HATE HATE HATE the stigma they’re promulgating on the show.
I understand this show did’nt really go into depth and it didn’t go into hanguel vs hanja or hanguel-mixed with hanaja vs. only hanguel etc etc but I feel like… they could’ve at least mentioned the advantages of hanja or something. everyone’s always like well with hanguel it’s easy to read and write and it saves time and it’s easy to type blahblah but hanja has advantages too. Maybe I’ll write a post on the advantages of hanja that i thought up or read abbout online from the japanese peeps or zainichi or whoever that hell wrote it. actually i don’t want to, it’s a waste of time there are definitely books already published on this topic that explains it througohly and evreything but it’s in japanese lol. I wonder if they translated any of those to korean…. or do they only post books about hanguel > hanja lol. j/k I’ve also collected writings people wrote about hanguel vs. hanja and the advantages of hanja that go more into depth PAST THE SUPERFICIAL S**** everyone already knows… so definitely check those links out in my post titled korean is harder than japanese blahblahblah lol. I really think it is at least for people who are english speakers. and read about it you’re learning korean or interested in learning korean or just for some reason want to read about that. it’s very interesting. some of the people that i collected the info from are very good at writing and explaining stuff plus it’s free since they’re from the internet! It’s definitely some deep insight you gotta check out.
I think the part where he’s writing is impressive, reading it really isn’t. It sorta is impressive though since they don’t really use it in korean so it’s sorta hard to remember vs in japan where it’s like everywhere ad actually used. my impression from the show is he has a photographic memor y+ he has mad interest in it.. and he sees it as fun pictures than oh shits. for some of the hanja they flashed on the show I thought they just looked so scary and they’re demotivating since some of them look so complicated lol. there’s traditional chinese characters for you. I was thinking going to a hanja juku… hanja gakuwon? what do you call it is a waste of time. I was thinking why don’t you just learn japanese lol. it’s way more efficient than learning to read hanaja which is never f’in used in korea except in the textbooks used to learn them to pass some stupid test in korea so that everyone thinks you’re really smart (I’m just thinking then everyone in china and japan are geniuses then? like wtf) or newspapers from decades ago. but who wants to read newspapers? not me… my love of kanji sure as hell will not overcome that!
I started watching another clip from a korean tv show about these kids that love “studying” hanja. honestly in korean they don’t use hanja so the only time you’d see it is when you were to study it like in your TEXTBOOK unlike japanese where it’s like anywhere and everywhere. I’m just like how the f do they have motivation for that. and are they gonna just forget it anyway? lol. they didn’t explicitly say they learned 3500 hanja but the mom or the expert was like yeah learning 3500 hanja helps expand their memory/memory power. so i’m gonna guess that’s how many learned they said 1kyuu which is 1ggp in korena. lol romajing korean is difficult to say the least. it really is prnounced like ggp .GGP .it’s no typo
documentary?? abaout the ishii method for learning kanji
this was interestin!
a japanese thing that i noticed.
so on the london hearts show. they were doing a relay and of course ATSUHI’s team is at a disadvantage since atushi is known as the MOMO SHIN or MOMO KAMI (I forgot which reading they use). his running is SO FUNNNNY. it didn’t change from the last time as far as i could tell. if you haven’t seen it, you should definitely watch it. a screencap doesn’t do it an ounce of justice . you gotta see him run in motion. I was dying from laughter and this was my second time witnessing his running form ! let’s just say he moves upward instead of forward when he runs.
so they ere doing a relay and atushi was strategizing and he was like you guys are chokin and we’re sanzai. at first i was like senzai? wtf that mean. then i was like oh sanzai but i dont know what that means lol. so i looked it up and it’s basically the opposite of chokin.
at first i was like wtf i don’t get what he’s saying. and then i watched the relay raace and then they talked about the chokin/sanzai thing again since they lost. and then i became more and more sure that he meant it this way. so atushi and this other guy are sanzai because they’re mad slow and the other guys are chokin because they’re mad fast. so they wanted the fast guys to get ahead of the other team’s runner as much as possible and like maintain that big lead… but what happened was there was no lead lol. and atushi vs. anyone….. atushi loses lol. seriously his running is so inefficient.
I love japanese usage like this… where they use tatoe. that’s definitely important for fluency. you gotta pick up on these tatoe’s within a split second or whatever unlike me taking way more than a second with my rewinding and thinking and looking up. i think part after the race completely made it clear the way he was using the 2 words.
About korean I saw the beatles code recently. the ep with t-ara. I don’t know how I found out about the ep but I like listening to gossip and rumors and scandals lol. So basically I watched the second half of the 40 somethig minute ep. the first half is just so boring and the part with the parallell shit is just tiring and most of it is こじつけ. one or 2 things from the paralell argument makes me go “ooh” or whatever. So if you’re like me and want to hear the meat of the show go watch the second half! Understanding it wasn’t that bad and i was able to look up words to add to my anki deck.
here’s some of the words I added to my deck!
【예】단순한 풍문에 지나지 않는다. 【訳】 単なるうわさにすぎない
I was so surprised I was able to enjoy watching the second half of the show because for me this show is notorious for being unwatchable. it just seems to always want to fulfill all the crap i hate about korean talk/variety that i mentioned in a previous post. and the first half did embody a lot of stuff I hate about korean talk/variety like making a big deal out of really minute shit that in japanese tv would just be edited out or just wouldn’t have been carried out or even thought of in the first place because it’s so damn boring and pointless.
