๋„ˆ๋Š” ๋„ˆ ๋‚˜๋Š” ๋‚˜ (No no no na no na) [Hyuna: Roll Deep]
Another one of my misconceptions: "no no no na no na". Okay: to be honest, I seriously thought that Hyuna was singing to me. Like, really. (Listen to Hyuna's whole Roll Deep/Because I Am the Best here!) When you sing it, it's kind of slurred, so I can sort of tell why I thought she was *singing* that. Here's the part that sounds like it. Doesn't it kinda sound like she's singing? Well: I was proved otherwise. I looked it up, and I came across the result: "๋„ˆ๋Š” ๋„ˆ ๋‚˜๋Š” ๋‚˜" (neoneun neo naneun na). Especially with these kinds of phrases, it's really hard to hear it right the first time. She's saying, "You are you, I am me". Let's go through this phrase one by one. ๋„ˆ๋Š”(neo-neun): You are ๋„ˆ (neo): You ๋‚˜๋Š” (na-neun); I am ๋‚˜ (na); I Or, something close to that (correct me if I'm wrong!) The difference between ๋„ˆ and ๋‚˜, is that ๋„ˆ hasใ…“(eo), and ๋‚˜ hasใ…(ah). Basically o and a. Agh! That's the only difference there! Confusing!!! But after I started listening to this song more, I realized that it's not too hard. It's just no nooh no na nooh na. ๊ดœ์ฐฎ์•„์š” (gwenchanayo; it's ok), I've got this. [The word I just used there (๊ดœ์ฐฎ์•„์š”) is probably used in every drama, I mean it. It's one of the first word (er, phrase) I discovered while watching K-Drama :)] //her winks are so adorable :3// ์•ˆ๋…• (anneyong)!
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, sautรฉ 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?!
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
