Korean 101: This and That

In Korean, using "this" and "that" is really easy and useful!

이 - This (close to speaker)
(ee)
그 - That (close to listener)
(keu)
저 - That (far from both speaker/listener)
(jeo)

Examples:

이것 - This thing (ee-geot)
그것 - That thing by the listener (keu-geot)
그사람 - That person (by the listener) (keu-saram)
저사람 - That person (over there not near the conversation) (jeo-saram)

Listen at 0:54

이렇게 저렇게 이렇게 저렇게

(i-reo-ke jeo-reo-ke, i-reo-ke jeo-reo-ke)

Like this, like that, like this, like that

Does the 그 and 저 explanation make sense? Can anyone explain it more clearly (I feel like its hard to explain hahhaa)

I think you explained it well!! I did learn about this before on talk to me in korean and they explained it like this. 이= this (object your speaking about is near you) 그 = the/ that ( object is near the person your talk to) 저 = that (object of speech is far from both speakers)
I wonder if it harder to Korean then it is to learn English? I mean like a Korean learning English. I think leaning Korean can be difficult.
talk to me in korean explained it really well i think, its a level one lesson
that moment when you realize you already know these, THANK YOU K-DRAMAS😂😂😂
i feel like I'll remember this well since I love that song and also I already knew 이렇게 so that makes a lot of sense!!

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?!

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?!
Super M Editor Intro!
Hey guys it’s MaeLyn! It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these so let’s see if I remember how to do it! I took a break from Vingle during the last term and it’s already changed a lot! I turned 23 in June and I’ve been in kpop since 2015, my first group was BigBang but I fell out of love with them a couple years ago. My ult group is and always will me B.A.P 😢. My ult bias is none other than Mr. Jung Daehyun. I’m super excited for SuperM’s debut because I love all the groups in it. Plus I can’t wait to be wrecked by the group that’s 3 biases and the rest bias wreckers! My biases in SuperM are Baekhyun (who I’ll be representing), Taeyong, and Ten! The groups I stan and their respective biases are: BTS- Jin Block B- U-Kwon GOT7- JB B.A.P- Daehyun VIXX- N Seventeen- Hoshi, Woozi Astro- MJ EXO- Chanyeol, Baekhyun Day6- Jae SHINee- Key Monsta X- Minhyuk, Wonho 24K- (used to be Cory but he left and no one else has claimed me yet) Cross Gene- Shin Hotshot- Junhyuk NCT- Ten, Taeyong, Taeil, Jungwoo Pentagon- Hui, Hongseok, Yeo One Stray Kids- Felix Victon- Seungwoo Nu’est- Minhyun, Ren SF9- Inseong, Jaeyoon, Taeyang, Chani ATEEZ- Hongjoong I’ve been president of B.A.P, VIXX, Hotshot, Astro, and 24K communities and editor on NCT, Pentagon, Ateez, Wanna One, and Cross Gene! Back when moderators were a thing I was also one the Day6 team! I feel like there’s more that I just can’t remember haha I can’t wait to jump back in and bring you guys content!

HYUNA: Why "Too Sexy" Isn't a Problem
I recently wrote about how I'm a little disappointed in Cube Entertainment over Hyuna's new mini album teaser (and to be honest I still am) but now that her new MV is out I have a ton of things to say: Let me start off by saying, I LOVE HYUNA. While I'm not going to say she's a great singer or rapper, you have to admit that she's an incredible performer which at the end of her day is her JOB. She's magnetic, charming, and something about her work is so. damn. catchy. That being said, you can take her singles a few different ways but people tend to either think that she's WAY too sexy or that she's awesome for celebrating female sexuality. So which one am I? Somewhere in the middle... Sure, I have a few issues with her video but overall it seems pretty girl-power to me. There are no men in the video except for Ilhoon who raps about how Hyuna is a queen. She's not rapping about how all the guys want her, she's rapping about how she's the best over everyone - she's not here to impress or please anyone cause she's already at the top. As for how sexy the video is, yeah the choreo is definitely 19+ but it's not too different from a lot of other groups out there - people just expect it more from Hyuna. But no matter how much hip action is going on at the end of the day Hyuna is saying "don't touch me, you can't touch me" and makes it clear that she is proud of herself, not trying to get guys to want to be with her. Again, yes the choreo is a little racy but I'd like to introduce you to Infinite's Hoya: Basically, I think that Hyuna's image is definitely over sexualized but she does it in a way that is empowering not belittling to women. She's celebrating the fact that she's sexy but also that she's a powerful and independent woman. So she's promoting self-confidence, independence, sexual expression, and girl power? Just a side note - If you aren't already a fan, please follow her Instagram so you can see how much of a genuine, lovable goofball she is. Originally I didn't like her just because I formed my opinion of her out of what I saw on stage, but now I know a totally different side of her (granted, I still don't know her personally sooooo) and she's GREAT. She's constantly praising other artists and her backup dancers and she really just lives life to the fullest. YOU GO HYUNA, YOU GO. Check out the video below and let me know what you think :D
