Korean 101: Moshi Moshi?

It's time to answer the phone!

When we pick up the phone we usually just say "hello?" but in Korean there is a specific word for when you're starting a conversation on the phone
You don't say "안녕하세요?" you say...

여보세요 - Are you there?

(yeo-bo-se-yo)
In celebration of Nu'est comeback (watch here!) we're having Nu'est seonsaengnim teach today!

You've probably heard this phrase a TON in dramas too but here it is in a song to help you remember :D

Start listening at 0:16

여보세요 - Are you there?

Does anyone else HATE talking on the phone?!

*raises hand high!*

Only when it's people I don't know or haven't known long. It's sooo awkward 😅

I'm okay with talking to people on the phone because the people I talk to don't answer text messages... Though it does help my speaking skills so that good!

Question: isn't moshi moshi Japanese? Or did I just offend an entire race/language?
