When we think of k-pop phrases, it doesn't really come together, and we feel like we don't really hear it in songs a lot. However, this one was the first ever phrase that caught my attention: "Dyed our hair". The first time I heard it was in "I Got A Boy" by SNSD (Girls' Generation). When Tiffany told us that they "dyed their hair", my friend and I were confused. We were Why are they telling us that they dyed their hair? We don't really need to know-- And then it hit us. Why not look it up? We went on, which is an EXCELLENT source of (color coded) k-pop lyrics, if you didn't know already. Anyway, we looked it up, and there it was: "따라해".


It's actually ddara, but I guess it's easier for us English-speakers to say ttara, cause if we say ddara, our "d" sound would sound too bold. For here, I'll just leave it as ttara.
As I said earlier, the first ever song I heard this phrase was in "I Got A Boy". Here's a clip of Tiffany's "따라해". I edited the place where the YouTube video starts, so listen close; after she says "Hey, lemme introduce myself", it'll come! Hear that? I seriously thought she was telling us that they dyed their hair. But actually she was saying to follow her! Wow: what a finding.
Next up is Hyuna in 4Minute's "Crazy". Here's a clip for you to listen: after the first C.R.A.Z.Y., you may or may not hear it... Well, when I heard this song, I knew that they "dyed their hair", but I still kept on thinking that they did (because I kind of forgot the fact that my friend and I looked it up). No, they didn't dye their hair... but Hyuna unnie wanted me to follow her!
A little bit from the boy bands... SHINee's "A-Yo"! Well: Onew tells us that they dyed their hair in this part of the video. I looked the lyrics up, however, and he was singing us: "When you're tired of the feeling of being alone, then just follow me"! How nice :)
So 따라해! 따라해 on this Vingle collection please! (I'm just kidding, but I hope this card helped! Next time when you lead your group, yell at them, "ttara hae"!)
so, did you think they were saying "dyed our hair" in English? or does the phrase 따라해 also mean dye hair?
Good question! I thought they were saying "Dyed our hair" in English, since it sounded like that to us. However, when we looked it up, it was a phrase that sounded similar to "Dyed or hair", but it actually meant "follow me". @Kamiamon
