Bunni Learns Korean: Sorry Nida!

Today we’re getting a little apologetic.

  1. – Mi (not you, me!)
  2. – An
  3. – Hab
  4. 니다 – Nida

This is how you say I’m sorry. Of course there are a number of variations depending on the circumstance, but this one is generally acceptable.

So if you ever get scolded or inconvenience someone in some way, just say 미안합니다!

Audio podcast is here, as usual.

Bunni Learns Korean: Where Now?

Today we’re going to learn another useful phrase for getting around in Korea!

Of course this is the simplified version – there are many variations depending on the context of the speaker. But if you need to get somewhere in a pinch (say, the toilet) it won’t matter which variation you use, as long as you get the idea across.

  1. Place name
  2. 어 – Eo (oh sound)
  3. 디 – Di
  4. 예 – Ye
  5. 요 – Yo

The last two syllables are relatively superfluous – the most important bit is the first two syllables:

Odie the dog running with his tongue out

Where is this guy going?

Yeah, if you remember Odie the dog, that’s where it’s at! I suppose you could also think of drug overdoses (OD) but this is a little more cheerful.

Of course you’ll need to know the terms for things like “toilet” or “police station”:

  • Bathroom – Hwajangsil
  • Police station – Gyeongchalseo
  • Market – Sijang
  • Subway – Jihacheol
  • Restaurant – Leseutolang (basically “restaurant” with a Korean spin)
  • Karaoke – Nolaebang

Below are a few other uses of the Eodi segment:

어디에서 오셨어요? (Eodieseo osyeosseoyo?)

Where are you from?

어디 사세요? (Eodi saseyo?)

Where do you live?

Check out this podcast for an audio version! Have fun with it!

Bunni Learns Korean: You Speak?

Today we’re going to learn a vital question for you English-speaking travellers out there!

  1. 영 – Yeong – (pic reference to Yong Tau Fu)
  2. 어 – Eo
  3. 하 – Ha
  4. 세요 – Seyo

And that question is: “do you speak English?”

In case you have no idea what the dish in the first panel is supposed to be, it’s an iconic Hakka food item known as Yong Tau Fu, pictured below:

Check out this podcast for the audio pronunciation, and feel free to give me your feedback (or corrections)!

Bunni Learns Korean: You’re Welcome

Today we’re doing a response phrase! You would say this in response to thank you.

  1. 천 – Chun
  2. 만 – Man (e.g. mantou)
  3. 에 – Eh
  4. 요 – Yo

Basically a super formal version of “you’re welcome”. The more common phrase people would use is 아닙니다 which means “it’s nothing”.

Check out the podcast for actual pronunciation!

Bunni Learns Korean: Nice To Meet

Today we learn a polite and useful conversation starter, especially when you first meet someone!

  1. – Ban (Bun)
  2. – Kab (Cup)
  3. – Seub (Soup)
  4. 니다 – Nida

This mean “nice to meet you” and is a perfect phrase to say to a stranger that you’ve just met, assuming the meet is a friendly one. I suppose you could say it to random strangers in the street, if you really want…

Anyway, listen to the podcast for how to actually say it!

Love & Stuck Home Syndrome

Now with almost the whole world suffering from some form of Stuck Home Syndrome, it’s only a matter of time before the drama and the fanfics start to blossom. Once the fear of coughing and contagion wear thin, all that’s left is the other people stuck in the same building as you. All that’s left is love.

Or just a mutual disdain for your sloppy and uncultured roommates or neighbours, those loud and slovenly people across the wall who drag their chairs and slam their doors.

Almost makes me want to write a poem about it. Maybe even some fanfic – oh dear, the Stuck Home Syndrome really is taking effect. Fanfic, ew.

But at the end, isn’t that one of the few things keeping us going? Love? Not necessarily for another human being, but a hope that during this containment period, or perhaps after, that something magical is waiting, something wonderful is coming on the other side.

We all need that something to keep us going, keep us sane until the end.

I mean, think about it – a whole bunch of people locked up together in a house or stuck together in a compound. This is basically a season of Big Brother, with end-of-the-world vibes.

Things are bound to be said, tensions are bound to flare and heat up. People start to go mad with love or hate or actual insanity.

So…maybe go talk to that neighbour you’ve seen in the elevator or passing by in the corridor. If it works out, then:

Image result for hulk i see this as an absolute win

If not, then…you can just lock yourself in your room/apartment/basement and mope about it until we’re released like mad bunnies into the wild.

At the very least, it’ll make for a good story.

I bet someone’s already writing a book titled “Stuck Home Syndrome”.

What story would you write?
