Tbt, Fashion

Recently I've been watching a lot of historical dramas, Hwarang for example, and I noticed that the clothes they were wearing were simply gorgeous!

They are mostly wearing Korean traditional clothes, which are called "Hanbok" and are charactized by vibrant colors & simple lines without pockets. Both the mens' & womens' hanbok looks super beautiful <3

Personal, Word of the Day

Wednesday is now coming to an end, which means that the weekend is almost upon us. Since for me that also means that the holidays will start in a few days, I am very much looking forward to it! Before that though I still have 1 more exam and 1 more paper that I need to write, which is what I have been busy doing today. I've also applied for a few jobs, so hopefully that goes well too!

What have you been up to today? And how was your day? xx

Good Night <3 (Jal ja yo <3)

Ps. Today's Korean word is "Thank You"

This is the most common way to say thank you. You can use it in all situations without having to worry about insulting anyone.

Travel

My ultimate dream right now is to visit South Korea, but since I am just a student on a budget I can't afford to do that just yet =(

But what I can do is to look at pictures & dream away💙

Ps. I found these pictures when I googled Seoul, which is the capital of South Korea, but as Goodle isn't the most accurate source I'm not 100% sure that these are actually pictures of Seoul or someplace else in the country🇰🇷

K-pop, Word of the Day

Good morning!

I forgot to write this yesterday, but the Korean word of the day was "Good Morning" :3

The way you would say good morning in Korean is, believe it or not, the same as how you would say hello. This is because, unlike many other languages, the way to greet someone in Korean is the same no matter the time of day.


Now, I wish you a very good day! You can brighten it up a bit by watching this fun music video of Red Velvet's song "Dumb Dumb" ;) <3

"Life is continuation of decisions

It's not easy but it's up to me

Luckily, after I went into a curved way

This anxiousness comes again

In the end, I believe I have the answer"

Lyric of the Day

"I believe in destiny"

- "I Am You You Are Me" by Zico

This one isn't just a quote, but I really do believe in destiny. Something that is meant to be, will happen. Even if it's not in the way we think it will ;) <3

Word of the Day

I am slightly obsessed with South Korea, and this blog only proves it. My biggest dream is to go to South Korea, wheter as a turist or for a longer period of time doesn't matter much. But in order to do that in "the proper way", I need to learn the language. Since right now I do not have the time or the energy to study super seriously, I decided to take it little by little. Word by word. Basically that means that every day or every 2 days I will learn 1 new Korean word. The first word is:

Good night

It literally translates to “sleep well” so it pretty much spot on means the same in Korean as it does in English. That last little bit, “yo” is used to make the expression polite and you would normally use it with people older than you. However, jal-ja-yo is mainly used when talking to an older friend.
