Korean Alphabet Series: ㄷ
[Regularly, the Korean Alphabet is organized in 한글, or hangul. But in this case, I'm going through them by the order on the keyboard. Also, if I make a mistake, don't be afraid to comment! Before you 'report' this card: don't worry--I know the alphabet series isn't K-Pop related but it'll soon be. I'm still going over the alphabet :)] What letter comes after W on the keyboard? Today is the E key! Or, better yet, ㄷ. Back then when I was oblivious to this K-Pop world, this was the only letter of the alphabet I knew because my ultimate bias was/is D.O. Yes: I only knew one alphabet. ("Back then"=3 months ago) So... ㄷ ㄷ ㄷ ㄷ ㄷ ㄷ ㄷ ㄷ ㄷ ㄷ ㄷ ㄷ. If you're a Japanese speaker (more like writer/fluent person), it'll probably look like the katakana letter, コ, but the other way around. So: a way to remember this? A half 'D'. It's not that easy thinking of these ways to remember these alphabets...so far this is the only way, but if you have any ideas, comment below! Shift+E= ㄸ. That's when you want to make a hard d sound (kinda like DD) or 'tt'. Examples! (You don't need to read them, but just spot the letter!) - 감사합니 (gamsa-habnida). It's the formal way to say thank you :) - 오 (D.O.). Kyungsoo. - 덥 (dob-da). I think it means temperature-hot? - 료 (dong-lyo). Colleague. (Why would you need to know that?)
You've got this! (Did you know: Mansae means hurray? I was told by a Korean friend that you say Mansae while putting your hands up! Seventeen does that too :)

Do you also speak Japanese? Since you mentioned katakana, I'm curious! I'm currently learning Japanese in university but I think I might switch to Korean. Do you know if Korean is any easier to learn or should I just stick with Japanese?

Yup, I do! I think Japanese is harder, but it's definitely a good language to start off with! It's up to you, wether you want to learn Korean or not. But if you need help, just ask me :) @ChaErica
