WTH KOREA: Watermelon Milk?

Alright, I'm not a big milk fan to begin with, but WATERMELON MILK!?

WHAT!?

Here's a list of a few Korean milk drinks I've heard of:

우유 - Milk

(oo-yoo)

두유 - Soy Milk

(doo-yoo)

바나나우유 - Banana Milk

(banana-oo-yoo)

딸기우유 - Strawberry Milk

(ddal-gi-oo-yoo)

커피우유 - Coffee Milk

(keo-pi-oo-yoo)

수박우유 - Watermelon Milk

(soo-bak-oo-yoo)

메론우유 - Melon Milk

(mel-ohn-oo-yoo)

This group is named 딸기우유 ~ Strawberry Milk :D

(they're a subgroup of Crayon Pop who is a group you NEED in your life)

What do you think? I love banana milk but Melon Milk? Could you get into?

I actually had banana milk sold at my school, it was great. It tasted sort of like a smoothie version of banana laffy taffy, but it tasted really good!
I like banana and strawberry milk. I would like to try watermelon and melon milk. I wonder how they taste?

@kpopandkimchi I do admit the first time my cousin bought it for me I was like what even is this but it grew on me 😂

How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
Let's Talk About Ddeok!
Rice cakes are probably my favorite thing, EVER. In Korea, they come in all shapes and sizes. They're sweet or covered in hot sauce, served plain, or stuffed with goodness. They're amazing. In the photo above you can see long skinny ones, some shaped like figure 8s, and some stuffed with cheese! Rice cakes in Korea are called ddeok or 떡. (all photos are mine^^) This is chicken and ddeok in a cup! The chicken and ddeok and fried up in a sweet and spicy sauce. The outside of the ddeok is a little crispy but the inside is still super soft and chewy! This is dango! This is a more Japanese take on ddeok but you can still find it in Korea! Traditional Korean version of this is grilled ddeok. It's just a few pieces of rice cake on a stick and placed on a grill to make them crispy and warm. This is bingsu! An amaaaazing Korean dessert that comes in all different flavors. The more traditional flavors of bingsu like patbinsu (red bean) usually comes with ddeok on top! In this case, the ddeok is rolled in misugaru which is a powdered grain a lot of Koreans use in lattes or nutritional drinks :) This is ddeokbokki! The actual love of my life. Ddeokbokki is a ton of rice cakes thrown into some super spicy delicious sauce with fish cake, onion, and usually a hard boiled egg. You can get this as street food or in nearly any Korean restaurant you pop into :) Also, @carenabobo, here are the fish on a stick (also called oh-deng) that I think you were talking about^^ Ddeok is colorful, tasty, and nutritious! Never pass down an opportunity to munch on some^^
