Re: Ask A Pro about Living in Seoul, South Korea

:::::Warning:::::

If an old Korean woman asks you something in Korean, but you can't really understand them, do not under any circumstances just answer "ne". I found this out the hard way.

So a Korean women came up to me and asked me something in Korean which I couldn't understand. (I later found out she was asking if she could go ahead of me in line). I replied "ne" and proceeded just to stand there, in which in the following moments received the biggest verbal onslaught of my life. She threw around phrases like "jook uh leh" (and not the cute "my sassy girl" way, the pissed off im gonna cut your head off way) and "pyeong shin" and just mean stuff

Korean women are the scariest there are..

Ahh I thought they were closer to each other..

And it's actually been about 12 years, she's 24, and we're taking her 16 year old brother who is basically meeting her for the first time, he actually just started talking to her this year..

She went to Korea to visit for a week, never came back.. it's a really long story though..

Re: Ask A Pro about Living in Seoul, South Korea

Yea, when I was in China, Youtube, Google/Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Blogspot, etc. were all banned. There are ways to get around this but it sucks and this was one of the reasons I left China.

Questions:
-Where can one find good "LA style" galbi in Seoul? I prefer this over the "regular" galbi, not sure how else to describe it.
-What is the equivalent of facebook?
-How often do you use Naver?
-How would you rate your Korean skills now, from 1-10?

---Equivalent of Facebook = Cyworld

---Naver is awesome

---I'm decent at Korean(relatively obv) but i'd prob get owned by a little korean kid lol

Re: Ask A Pro about Living in Seoul, South Korea

LA Style galbi is



dunno what LA stands for but I just assume L = LONG. SO maybe..LONG ASS Galbi :P

I don't use Naver but stuff like Naver and QQ seem to be superior than the american messaging formats we use: skype, aim, msn

Like above poster, I'd get owned by a little kid : / So i give myself a 3. I've actually d/l'd pimsleur onto my ipod, if only I started studying...

You generally find LA style galbi @ tofu houses because well...the other stuff is better :P

Really good galbi in seoul is ****in expensive

I had this my last night in Korea and omg it's ****ing amazing. Best meat I've ever had (i've never had kobe). It literally like melts in your mouth:

we call it 살치살. Don't ask me about the meaning : /
