Learn Korean With Kpop: 오랜만이에요

Here's a new Korean with Kpop lesson!

Pretty appropriate since its been a long time, right? ;)


오랜 - a long time

<-- root word
(o-raen)

오랜만 - a long time

<-- the difference is hard to explain, but when you're saying 'it's been a long time' you use this.
(o-raen-man)

It can come in many different forms:

오랜만이야
오랜만이에요
오랜만네

Most commonly: 오랜만이네요! - its been a long time/long time no see!

(o-raen-man-i-ne-yo!)
Here are some examples to help you practice!

1. 0:09 안녕 오랜만이야 - hello, its been a while

(an-nyeong o-raen-man-i-ya)

2. 1:48 오랜만이죠? - its been a long time, right?

(o-raen-man-i-jyo)

3. 0:16 안녕 오랜만이야 - hello, its been a while

(an-nyeong o-raen-man-i-ya)

*~*~*~*BONUS*~*~*~*

오랜 날 오랜 밤 - A Day Long Ago, A Night Long Ago

See the root word "오랜?" It means a long time ago or a while ago :)

Did you guys already know this word? Do you recognize it when you hear it?

Here it a lot in K-dramas, recently heard it I think in the Bride of the Water God
yeah!!!! I think so too
@writerartgirl like maybe in the first episode or something?
these songs are so good too! thank you so much for posting this! it's great✌👍💞
It's a word that I've learned. Part of me wonders though if 오랜 is more referring to the time while 만 is like from 많이 so that it's literally a lot of time but I don't know exactly what 오랜 means. Lol

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?!
