Korean listening comprehension observations

iztHcP.md.pngI watched the recent episode of PD NOTE because it covered the vote rigging controversy surrounding the Produce series. I recorded all the parts I couldn’t understand or wasn’t sure of while watching and asked someone what the hell they said. They sub some of the dialogue or maybe most of it with Korean subs for this show so the stuff I pulled are the parts they didn’t sub that I couldn’t catch. 12 or so words for a 49 minute show ain’t too bad~

Answers with my thoughts

  1. 이 프로그램은 100% 시청자 투표로 당락이 결정되는 오디션. 방송에 나오지 않은 연습생들은                              *** I DON’T know this word. I heard dang nak 당낙 and I got nothing in lingoes dictionary and of course I diztL92.md.pngidn’t feel like thinking up all the possible ways to spell Korean words that can be pronounced as 당낙 and swiftly gave up when lingoes dictionary gave me no results. Turns out I heard right; Anyways, I just don’t have the sound-change rules memorized like that and I refuse to do that haha. Well at least with this encounter I’ll hopefully remember the next time I encounter a korean word with a ㅇ  bacchim followed by ㄹ  consonant sound, the ㄹ consonant turns into a ㄴ sound.  I actually already know a bunch of words that have this sound change rule like 격려 경녀 but that rule did not cross my mind whatsoever when i was typing dang-nak into lingoes. I have a similar souding word in anki and I’ve been pronouncing wrong this whole time!. Good to know. I must’ve added it before I got the 900,000+ dictinoary which has pronunciation info (I got it from produce 101 season 2- i didn’t notice that BoA was saying dng nak and not dng rak 등낙). Overall, I appareciate the RULE because it probably came about from ease of pronunciation ie saying  당낙 10 times fast is easier than saying 당락 10 times fast. It sucks how in korean that SOMETIMES even if I catch it perfectly I still can’t look up the word because I can’t think of all the possible ways to spell a word. Also I usually don’t have the motivation to look up all the possibilities in the dictionary so I give up after the first look-up if it doesn’t pan out and ask people what’d they say .
  2. (-하거든 사실) 야간에는 탁구 강습으로 투잡을 뛰면서 10년 동안 딸의 뒷바라지를 해온 아버지는 오디션 프로그램의 투표 조작…                                        ** I don’t know this word and I heard it right and I was too lazy to look it up so I asked since I highly doubted that he was saying two-job. The narrator really was saying TWO-JOB and it does mean what it sounds like in English. I’m glad I asked anyway because sometimes I actually hear it incorrectly despite my confidence
  3. 탈락한 것. 게다가 방송 말미에 공개된 최종 점수도 석연치 않았습니다. *** Kinda know this word ( i have low familiarity with it) and I heard it wrong lol and I just hate spelling unknown Korean words (I end UP at a dead-end most of the time and it’s annoying and time-consuiztvW9.md.pngming).  The site says it’s pronounced as 서견치  but I heard 석현치 and I gave up the investigation as soon as lingoes failed on me or rather the other way around.  I already know this word since it exists in Japanese…
  4. 진상 규명 요구에는 묵묵부답으로 일관해온 CJ E&M. 그런데 지난 10월…
  5. 군소 기획사들을 자회사로 편입해 왔습니다. *** don’t know this word
  6. 조용히 묻혔습니다. 그리고 올해 다시- [Audio changed] (-네 아닌 걸 아니라고-)
  7. 유통을 장악한 대기업들이 문화 산업을 독점적으로 지배할 수 없도록 만든 제도입니다.                            ***I know the word 산업 but couldn’t catch it for some reason. FOR this one I was proud that I caught 대기업 because it sounded like 대겁 or 대겹 to me and that’s because he didn’t say 대! -기! -업! since he doesn’t talk like a Korean textbook/korean dictionary etc. I just magically figured out he was saying 대기업after a 5 second delay. Needlessly to say I couldn’t process the sentence properly with that 5 second delay lol SO i rewound 10 secs on ondemandkorea.com. It reminds me of the time I saw some clip from a Korean movie where the guy was slurring/blending all the sounds together like crazy and I figured out the word after a 5 second delay (It was a word I already knew. If It was a word I didn’t know I’d be shit out of luck…). Stuff like reminds me that I can improve my Korean just by listening.. The first time I heard gangnam style I couldn’t understand PSY because he rapped/sang in this trendy way of enunciating Korean and nowadays I hear it fine since I’ve heard a lot more rapping/singing since then. It’s a matter of getting used to it. Honestly I think the de-gi-up here is pronounced fine/clearly and I just need to listen more. In case you’re curious, I’ve never had this 5-second delay phenomenon for Japanese. I think it’s unique to Korean due to the bacchim/all them vowel sounds/ alotta sounds in general/the ease of slurring the shit out of the word. The closest thing I can think of is the time I rewound this part in a talk/variety show like 10 times and figured out what the person was saying on the 10th rewind lol… bY THE 8th time I wasn’t even really trying to listen or figure out what the person was saying. It was most DEFINITELY NOT MY FAULT for not understanding the person. It was just unclear/bad pronunciation that I decoded from rewinding. cAN’T remember the name of the show or the person since it was such a long time ago.
  8. 실패한 투자의 손실은 과연 누구의 몫일까? ** no idea why i couldn’t catch it. pretty easy stuff.
  9. -동안 워너원은 혹사 논란이 일 정도로 바쁜 일정을 소화했습니다.                               ** I know this word in Korean and I use it all the time in Japanese KOKUSHI. Not to mention the the footage they showed in the show provided context and served as a fantastic hint.However it sounded like 혹산 to me so 혹사 didn’t even enter my mind.
  10. 군소 연예 기획사들이 큰 상처를 입었습니다. *** don’t know this word.
  11. 피해 당사자를 회유해서 문제를 덮고 넘어가기에 바빴습니다.*** don’t know this word… too lazy to deal with all the ways to spell he-yu to look up the word. Not to mention they are 5-6 entries for 회유 as it is
  12. 경연으로 단계별 진출자를 가리는 서바이벌 방식. *** I know the word already but couldn’t catch it for some reason…
