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 :)

daehan minguk, mansae! (republic of korea, hurray!) its also the name of Song Il Gook's triplets (I believe thats his name)
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
