@cenching @sushilicious

 

"nok cha" in Korean is green tea.  "cha" is tea, though the way the Koreans use it sometimes, it can also refer to just about any hot drink. So, for instance, you'll see someone ask if they want to come and drink some "cha", but then they serve a coffee instead.

milk=GooYoo(it’s hokkien) it’s kinda similar...haha

 

In Korean, milk is "oo yoo".

 

So, is "Gong Joo" meaning princess in Korean also a Mandarin or Teochew word?

Actually there are so many words in Korean that I still need to clarify because of the tones.....I am watching TYH while taking notes but the sugar got me high and the fluff blinded and deafen me so I think I need to encore a complete episodes after it ends in order to lengthen my list....:joy:

 

Btw, did my small list is correct in Korean??

Yes. I might spell the consonants slightly differently, e.g. you wrote GamTong, and I would probably romanticize that word as GamDong, but the words are clearly recognizable. Good job!

Whatever limited Korean words I recognize are also from drama watching. Lol 

 

My Korean friends are surprised sometimes. They’re like “how do you know?” :sweatingbullets:

so just was reading the articles on the whole burning sun scandal and all the different fall outs and was wondering how messages from 2015-2016 came out now.... according to comments, it was a phone technician! apparently, there is some article that says someone's phone crashed and they sent it to be repaired and the person repairing the phone saw these messages, was shocked and tipped off a lawyer and reporter...

@stroppyse At this point, I somewhat memorize the korean vowels. Like I could read the korean words on a label, but I just don’t know what it meant.:sweatingbullets: Unless is Konglish. Then I would be like “Ah Ha! Popcorn!” But I’m still learning though. Like I recently found out that... Gok Chang? Is intestine. Maybe Gok is Cow? Then Chang is intestines, so Cow Intestines? Er.... learning another language is hard....:sweatingbullets:
