I watch a lot of Korean TV shows online and calling people “prince” and “princess” seems to be another way of calling them arrogant or full of themselves.
I don’t know about China though.
Have you been watching the Korean soap operas? God im hooked on one right now.
Yes. Dramas, melodramas etc
I have watched too many to name. :)
Presently I am watching “The Great Seer” among others, and an older show called “Damo”. I also liked “Faith” and “Rooftop Prince”.
I have watched so many I have written a story outline, which takes place far in the future on a colony world that has become primitive. This will be the excuse why English and Korean become mixed.
(as if that were even possible... then again a LOT of recent Korean words are transliterations from english)
I also have been using a several websites to attempt to learn some basic Korean.
One of them is: http://www.korean-flashcards.com/
I would not recommend you start with this one though. I just fine reading words in english, hangul and how they are pronounced an easier route for me.
This one uses PDF and audio as well as some video to teach Korean.
I’d think that China should be very concerned that Havard might corrupt her with their leftist beliefs...
Yep. Think...JAP or Jewish American Princess
Yeah, we Yanks really suck until there’s something they “need” from us, like a decent university education.
Too bad the chinese people would never get a chance to attend such a prestigious university. But, alas, in communistic/socialist countries, that’s only for the most elite among them. The serfs must remain in the fields, or the factories.
“Shes probably less Communist than most of the Harvard professors.”
They probably sent her here to strengthen her revolutionary ideals....
“seems to be another way of calling them arrogant or full of themselves.”
In China, it’s another way of saying “spoiled.”
And she’s very lovely!
