Korean 101: I'm So Embarrassed!
If you're anything like me, you probably have a ton of embarrassing moments. Here's some helpful vocab for that^^

부끄럽다!

(boo-kkeu-reop-da)
To be embarrassed or bashful

부끄러워!

(boo-kkeu-reo-weo)
That's so embarrassing, I'm so embarrassed!

부끄러워 죽겠다!

(boo-kkeu-reo-weo ju-ket-da)
I'm so embarrassed I'm going to die!

Have you had any embarrassing moments lately?

Here's mine:
My cousin got accepted to Virginia Tech (his dream school) right before Christmas so we had a party for him. The whole house was decorated in VT colors (literally, everything in the house) and at one point his friend said "gee Kyle, what school are you going to again?" and I TOTALLY missed the sarcasm and was like "you can't tell by all the VT stuff around the house?" and only realized my mistake until it was way too late to be like 'omg you were kidding' He must have thought I was so stupid omg hahahaha
I felt so dumb! Gahhh so embarrassing!!! 부끄러웠어요!

Tbh I find a lot of my dancing outbreaks embarrassing cause im usually the only one who knows what im dancing to since I usually have headphones in. but actually one time in work this korean girl came in to get her iPhone screen fixed. my phone was upfront under the register while I was in the back fixing her phone. and out of no where my phone started going off (its a mix of bad by infinite and eoeo by uniq) and I was singing to it and walked out with her phone and she was dancing to it and we kinda had a stare off with me holding her phone lol. I never picked up my phone to my boss and then after work my boss came in asking why I never picked up and he played back the cameras and I kinda just stood there smiling and scratching my head.

Haha, that's nothing. A few weeks back, I was doing an interview for my volunteering role at the Library and the librarian asked me a question. I had been listening to kpop all day and studying just before I got there, so I ended up answering her in Korean. She looked at me like I was crazy so I was like "뭐요?" And she just kept looking at me. It took me a few minutes to realize I was talking to her in a language she didn't know. But luckily for me she found it entertaining and accepted my application.

Oh lawd, I could write a book with all my embarrassing stories 😳 Here's one off the top of my head: I was on vacation skyping with my best friend who just went away for college. She was telling me about a schoolmate who can read and write Chinese. This was around the time that "Which Asian are you?" video with the guy and girl jogging came out. I was like,"Which... Kind of Asian... Is he?" and she was just like,"He's white... He's just really into the Chinese language." Commence real life facepalm...
