Natural Korean: Do You Know that You Know These Words?

As Kpop or Kdrama fans, we actually know a lot more Korean than we give ourselves credit for.

Just by watching TV or listening to people speak, we learn so much!

Here are a few words you probably know thanks to the wonderful world of K-entertainment!

막내 - Youngest Member

(mak-nae)
This applies to school, work, and family too! You're usually stuck with boring little chores all the time and can't even complain cause your elders are allowed to boss you around ;D

리더 - Leader

(ree-deo)
Yep, they use the English word to express "leader!"

PD님 - Director/Producer

(PD-nim)
You might hear people say this when talking about the people who are in charge of filming the TV programs :)

대표님 - CEO

(dae-pyo-nim)
Lee Soo Man for example...the CEO of SM :D

형/언니 - Older Brother, Older Sister

(hyung/eonni)
Members call each other this a lot, but you use it with friends (who are older than you) and in your family too!

What other words have you picked up naturally from Kpop/Kdrama!?
