I was surprised I didn’t post this on my wordpress. i’ve only posted on my lang-8. to set the right tone for the idiocy that I encountered here’s a HILARIOUS clip that makes you go WTF AND LOL.

Then I got the same bullshit recently.

It’s not even just a korea/japan thing.you could do this with pretty any country + japan etc etc.  basically this person has no clear assertion at all (if i were to ask questions like well what about the  half-korean/half-ajpanese people, what about all the korean people learning japanese, all the japanese people learning korean, the korean people marrying japanese people, the korean/japanese halves who only speak japanes, the kpop people making money in japan, THE FACT THAT KOREAN PEOPLE WOULD RATHER READ JAPANESE NOVELS THAN KOREAN NOVELS (it’s in the numbers), the polyglots on this planet… so you’re saying i should pick  one or the other? or i should pick korean over japan since japan did horrible stuff to korea? I should ban japanese from my life even though i love japanse tv? this person has no answers to any of this because they have no clear stance on ths issue at all.. the previous person who asked the bs question seemed to want to tell me what i should do or what i can’t do… then i said so you’re telling me to do this? then they’re like no i don’t care what you do. my repsonse was “if that is the case you wouldn’t have sent the inital message”). they just want to point something out and feel smart? it’s not even something to point out… everybody already knows.

I’m just curious on everyone’s thoughts on this… I guess anyone who is interested in korean and Japanese and are especially is a descent of either countries … or even if you’re not a descent of either country your country probably got screwed over by japan at some point. they seemed to have a hurt lot countries in history. Do you separate the history/love of the modern culture/media?  Does it make sense that i should stop watching/reading japanese/listening to japanese and dedicate myself to becoming fluent in korean just becuase i’m genetically-obligated even though i genuinely enjoy japanese media a lot and like i said before korean tv pisses me off a lot. when it comes down to it these people are telling how to spend my time since I love watching jaapesne tv, i like my japanese music, i like reading japanese books /internet/etc.  I can’t eat sushi anymore ? lol. this person assertion is NOT FORMED.

How do you digest the information?

their logic is japan did bad stuff to korea in the past so koreans hate japanese (this is a generalization)  so at this present time people should be aware of the history and follow up on the feelings of hate by avoiding japansee crap ?  BUT IF YOU DO that then you have to go into MORE DETAILS like how far do you go? japanese people make a lot of GOOD SHIT that you probably use on a daily basis. it almost seems ridiculous to avoid japanese crap incessantly because you will have to research and go oh damn this thing was made by a jap  A LOT and  then throw it away. people should go out of their way to avoid using any korean words that are of japanese origin?   it gets so petty in my opinion. The logic is that you’re avoiding japanese shit to “win” basically in that you “lose” if you do not avoid japanese shit. but if your wasting this much time of your life hardcore hating to the point that you’re spending this much time to avoid japanese shit with research and most likely your quality of life might be lowered since you forbid yourself from using japanese shit (but maybe some of the stuff you use in your daily life is also made by another country or maybe you don’t mind footing a bigger dill for a product that is inferior to the japanese counterpart)  it sounds like you’re “losing” in actuality. it’s just stupid

that’s basically what I said in my lang-8. I don’t personally want to labor over this topic whatsoever and research history or wahtever. because it’s not gonna change the fact that I love myjapanese media and I will keep consuming it. NOT TO MENTION I don’t have that much free time so i’m always trying to catch up with my japanese tv shows. THAT IS ALSO A REASON  these people psis me off. clearly they have too much free time. i BARELY HAVE enough time to accomplish/enjoy what I want  (SINCE IT’S LIFE AND YOU HAVE TO WORK AND DO SHIT ) yet this loser is asserting that I should spent my tie like this (that’s basically what this person is saying though the person did not say that explicitly/directly). the people who are gonna make really vague/useless assertions are just losers. they do not sound/look educated in any form/dimension. I’m just curious on people’s insights/thoughts on this issue that i’m sure I would have more insight/thoughts about if I made my japanese ability/learning public which i don’t. I don’t like dealing with bullshit/ignorance… I know what annoying attention you get in public if you draw anime in a public place or you tell your friends I started learning japanese etc etc especially in america because everybody loves hating . I really don’t like that about ameican culture because it’s honestly stunting our growth and making people complacent . by hating, people are being discouraged. you could argue that some people may use that to fuel their passion or whatever but I think it’s more negative than positive. in the end, the hating limits your activity/what you can do when there’s people around therefore decreasing the amount of time you spend doing whatever it is that you’re passionate

about. in all earnestly I would get shifted on badly since my japanese is better thaN Korean even though I’m korean. But I don’t care it’s what I enjoy f u. It’s not my fault korean tv won’t copy japanese tv more hardcore lol

pet peeve of mine…. konglish. ATROCIOUS KOREAN IN OTHER WORDS.

Posted in korean by choronghi.WORDPRESS.COM on September 14, 2013

I’m just like if you cannot express yourself in korean then express yourself in english because the shit that is coming out of your mouth is driving me insane.

lately i haven’t had to hear/be subjected to this but sometimes i just am and it’s just damn annoying.  in that same vein, i can’t seem to remember any good examples… by good examples i mean the shit that pisses me off.

https://i0.wp.com/imageshack.us/a/img404/4797/3bsa.png

hmmm here goes:
입어 it.  <- wtf is this shit. first of all everyone koreans korean grammar and english grammar are like oil and water you cannot mix them. if you mix them you get shit like this taht pisses off people. there’s worse examples but i cannot  remember them right now. like i said i’m not in that environment anymore thank god.

https://i0.wp.com/imageshack.us/a/img109/5825/2tzb.png

some sentence in korean with one or a few of words in english when those words definitely exist in korean… like the korean words that are based on the chinese characters or whatever. point is… it exists and fluent people know those words and would use them. you’re not using them because you don’t know them or the english words came to your head first? I honestly don’t know what is the reason for this bullshit. but this shit pisses me offfffff.

I also hate the opposite… when you speak english and then you insert some korean adjective or whatever.

CHOOSE A LANGUAGE. STICK WITH IT. stop being so damn lazy. don’t be like oh but i can’t express this in english blahblah…. then speak in korean not shit korean or shit english. DO NOT DO NOT LET BS LIKE THESE COME OUT OF YOUR MOUTH.

Of course like I said my korean ain’t fluent so I’m very curious of the korean speaker’s korean abilities (I’m not fluent so i can’t exactly judge the person’s korean to see if they’re fluent or not) …. seeing as this person keeps using english words in their korean-speaking i’m thinking are you trying to overreach yourself?  Like are they doing this because they legit do not know the corresponding word or phrase in korean? as in not fluent. Or are they just being lazy? what is the whole thinking process etc etc? It’s a paradox too right? It’s like oh even if you’re korean sucks you should keep speaking to prevent forgetting or in hopes of improving (my personal philosphy is you should do other stuff on top of the speaking if you really really do want to improve. otherwise i just get the feeling you’re just gonna speak in this shitty way for the rest of your life). The other side is goddamnit your konglish is annoying JUST SPEAK ENGLISH GODMDANIT.   besides annoying for me i just find it so embarrassing to be around/associated/talking to that person. i would never BE that person but i feel embarrassed for that person. what’s the point of speaking of korean if there’s that much english in it.

If there’s any ACTUALLY fluent korean-american speakers with annoying korean friends who speak crappy korean or english-laden korean would like to explain the phenonamenum to me please do.

P.S. I JUST FOUND OUT FROM READING A BOOK that the phrase JUST DESERTS is spelled with ONE R. i always thought it was JUST DESSERTS since the meaning of the phrase and the word dessert corresponds better than deserts… and also the pronunciation of the PLURAL FORM of desert should DESERT with sss right?  (as in different from the just desserts pronunciation. ) am i dumb? does everyone know this? lol… I think I’ve only heard this phrase on tv or something… i’ve never read it.. hence my assumption.
