WTH Is 질투!?

I am seeing this word more and more in Kpop lyrics and wanted to really understand it :)

질투 is ENVY


So how is it different from 부럽다 (to be jealous)??


1. 부럽다 (boo-reop-da) is a VERB while 질투 is a noun.

Think "to be jealous" vs the noun "jealousy."

2. 질투 is more selfish.

When you make it a verb like 질투하다 you're jealous and not really happy for the other person you're jealous of. For 부럽다 you can still be happy for the other person! For example, you're 부럽다 that your best friend got a new puppy. You're still happy for your friend though!

3. For more reasons keep watching the video!

Here are some examples!

질투 나요 - Envy is coming! I'm feeling envious!

(jil-too na-yo)

내가 질투 나잖아 - I'm going to get jealous!

(nae-ga jil-too na-ja-na)

Things To Say To Our Idols On Twitter, Instagram, etc.
안녕하세요! So, I've been on Twitter and for the past few days, I've been seeing fans replying to idols' tweets, saying, "F*** me." or "Daddy." I think this is extremely disrespectful to our lovely, hard-working idols. Here are some nice things to say to our idols on Twitter and Instagram. ^^ (This ___ means someone's name goes there! ^^) ___ 사랑해. (I love you, ___.) 화이팅! (Fighting!) ___ 힘내. (“___, I support you." or "___, feel better.”) ___ 힘내고 사랑해. (___, feel better. I love you.) 항상 응원해. (I support you always.) ___, 생일축하해요. (Happy birthday, ___.) 건강하고 행복하세요. 좋은날을지내요. 사랑해요. (Always stay happy and healthy. Have a good day. I love you.) 이런 소문에 휩쓸려 맘아파하지말아요.사실이 아닌걸알아요.우리가 항상 뒤에있을께요. 힘내요, 알았지요? (Please don't let rumors get to you. We know they're fake. We're always here to support you guys. Keep your heads up, okay?) 본인을잘챙겨주세요. 힘들게노력하는것을알고있으니까 많이 걱정하기도하지만 뿌듯해요. 당신이 건강하고 행복할때 우리팬들도 가장행복해요. (Please take care of yourselves, we know you work very hard and this makes us both very proud and worried. Your fans are happiest when you are happy and healthy.) 기쁨가득한날을 보냈으면 좋겠어요. 많이사랑해요. 건강하고 많이쉬세요. (I hope you have a wonderful day full of joy. I love you very much. Stay healthy and rest lots!)
