Asian Americans Try to Speak Their Native Language

I know that many Vinglers are Korean, but a lot of us are learning the Korean language as non-Koreans!


While learning another language is great, do you guys know the languages that could be most important to your families?!

As Koreans studying the Korean language, how does your family feel about your progress?

Do any of you speak languages linked to your heritage?

My great-grandmother only spoke Hungarian and I only know two words in Magyar :/ I can speak zeeeeeeeeero Gaelic (Irish) too :(

@ZitaMahoney The card title is just the name of the Buzzfeed video. It is all cool. She did not do anything wrong.
My parents speak Spanish and that is what we use to communicate with them. English is more for like school. But even then sometimes it's more of Spanglish. Currently I'm learning Japanese. I was teaching myself Korean. I know basic stuff but translating and sentences are what I'm stuck with right now. So I let that be for a bit. But I feel that for teaching myself I've done pretty well. 😁😁
I'm from Madagascar 🇲🇬🇲🇬🇲🇬🇲🇬. And my parents made and taught us to speak Malagasy since my siblings and I were little. Even though it is our first language, we still speak English very well. I always want to express my culture because I don't want it to die out. I hope everyone no matter what culture or language embrace it and love it. 🇲🇬🇲🇬🇲🇬👍🏽
@ZitaMahoney I didnt say that anywhere on the card but thanks, maybe tell buzzfeed :D
I can speak English and Spanish learning korean, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Italian, and French

Drinking in K-Entertainment
While it might be significantly less in Kpop than in typical American pop, alcohol is a constant presence in K-entertainment. I have no problem with people drinking to have fun - that's fine! But in Kdramas or Kpop, people are often shown drinking in two situations: 1. When they're angry/sad 2. When they need confidence And then they often drink until they are so drunk that they can't walk, stay awake, or speak. Which is often a warning sign for alcohol poisoning. To make matters WORSE. In K-dramas it is often when one of the characters is drunk that a kiss scene happens. You're Beautiful for example. The girl is so drunk that she falls on the boy and accidentally kisses him. From that point on they start to fall in love. This makes it seem okay to make advances on drunk or sleeping people - which it is NOT. Seeing behaviour like this over and over again in media can make your brain automatically think "I'm sad - I need to drink" or "My crush is drunk, perfect time to make a move and hope he forgets" It seems like I'm being dramatic (and sure, I am!) but it DOES have an effect on us subconsciously! I'm not trying to be a grandma and say "get that alcohol off the television, kids might see it!" No, no. I'm just saying the way it is shown in media is encouraging people to drink when they are depressed or vulnerable which is exactly when you SHOULDN'T drink. Another thing: In America, drinking culture tends to use "sexy" women to advertise but in Korea (yes, they still use "sexier women but...) advertisements also tend to use very young "innocent" idols. Take IU for example. She's know as the "little sister" of Kpop and yet one of her biggest endorsements is soju. Because its cute to get young innocent girls drunk. Am I the only one who has noticed this in Korean entertainment? I know its an issue in the US too, but considering how big the drinking culture in Korea is, I think its important to talk about!

6 Korean Olympians To Watch!
You know I can't WAIT for the Olympics so let's look at a few awesome Olympians representing South Korea :D PS: 올림픽 - oh-lim-pik! Ki Bo Bae - Archery A South Korean archer who was ranked the world’s number one archer in August 2015. She is the current World Championship and the defending Olympic champion in archery. An Chang Rim - Judo South Korea’s premier lightweight Judo champion and the nation’s representative in the 2016 summer olympics. He is currently ranked first in the world and seeded first in the Olympics. Kim Ji Yeon - Fencing A South Korean sabre fencer and the 2012 Olympic champion. Having started foil fencing at the age of 13, she is the first South Korean woman to win a gold medal in fencing in the Olympic games. Shin A Lam - Fencing A fencer whose 2012 duel sparked a huge controversy in the Olympic games after a timekeeping error gave her opponent a timing advantage. When South Korea immediately appealed the decision, Shin waited for over an hour on the duelling ground, in accordance to the fencing bylaws, while judges deliberated and eventually gave the win to Shin’s opponent. Son Yeon Jae - Rhythmic Gymnastics An individual rhythmic gymnast, dubbed the “National Fairy” of South Korea. She has won titles in the 2014 Asian Games, 2010 Asian Games, and 2014 World Championships. Calling it now: she's going to be the next Kim Yuna and have her face on EVERY advertisement lol! Park Tae Hwan - Swimming An Olympic swimmer who is the first South Korean to win an Olympic medal in swimming. He has competed and won medals in the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, and is to compete once more in the upcoming 2016 games. Who else is PUUUUUMPED for the Olympics?!
What Has BTS Taught You
Hello fam! I can across this cool edit. These are not my own, but I wanted to share. @VeronicaArtino and I were having a conversation about " why we look up to BTS or what we have learned from them." These edits definitely sum up what I have learned from BTS. Honestly my key things are you are never too young to be wise. Love myself and loving myself is not selfish. Love those who support you and even your haters. You reap what you sow. If you plant seeds of success and water them with hard work and dedication you will get what you deserve. Focus on being the best version of myself, screw comparing myself to others. COMMENT BELOW WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED FROM BTS!
