1. The writing is so systematic and I love the sharp edges and angular shapes of 한글
I know I’m mad. But somehow I don’t like cursive writing and I like blocky shapes. That’s why I get irritated with ひらがな
2. They come up with the wackiest idioms
But they all make so much sense and there’s so much wisdom in them. One of my recent favorites: 길 닦아 놓으니까 미친년이 먼저 지나간다 (sweep the road and the first one to cross is a crazy bitch). I’m very much in love with 속담 these days and I’ve been spending hours on it. ^^
3. You can sound so classy and melodious; yet in a brawl, Korean is might
I guess this applies to alot of languages, but in my biased opinion, I like how Korean is so.. cool. 😀 The same pretty lady can sound so sweet and classy at one moment and yet can probably win in a shouting match.
4. It’s the rage now.
It’s the peak of the Hallyu period. I’m secretly pleased that I chose to learn Korean when most people are starting to take an interest only now hahahahaha. 😀
5. Easy on the fingers and tough on the brain
Korean is really easy to type and a word is probably made up of less than 4 presses of the keyboard. But for some reason, Korean sentences can get ridiculously long and convoluted. It’s like they are trying to test your brain processing capacity and saving on all that full stops and commas. Right, I seldom see Korean sentences with commas. Do they actually use them? O.o
6. It brings me in contact with a whole new culture and so much new knowledge
My life has been greatly enriched – in terms of the new knowledge gained. Not just the language itself, but the insights to a culture/its people and general knowledge
Like I say, they are biased reasons. The only sane one is probably the last reason. (I ran out of ideas) >,<
Do share your own biased reasons! ^^
