6 In Korean learning journey (:/ korean studying tools

Playing 쿵쿵따 with myself

I am a very new fan of Korean variety shows. No one believes me when I tell them that in the 4.5 years of learning Korean, I probably watched like.. 1-2 ep of running man (cos big bang was on it), a few scenes of Infinity Challenge (cos of GD), a few ep of WGM (just for Khuntoria), a bit of 1N2D season 1 and yup.. that’s about it. But now, I’m totally addicted to 1N2D!!!! 

Okay, I need to stress that I only love the second season. KIM SEUNG WOO, JOO WON, UHM TAE WOONG, CHA TAE HYUN!!!!! OMG the show basically has almost all my top biases 😀 😀 Add in like.. Lee Seon Gyun and my life is complete. Almost. 😀 It’ll be too much to ask for Kang Dong Won right?

Somehow I never got into the season 1 of the show. Sorry. Different vibes.

Enough of fangirling.

While watching a recent ep of 1N2D, I discovered 쿵쿵따. Seriously, how fail can I get?

I love playing word games but no one will play with me. #foreveralone

In case you are as fail as me, 쿵쿵따 is like a word game when you start with a 3 character word and then the next person has to continue with a 3 character word that starts with the last character of the first word.

Instead of explanations, just watch this video!!! Can’t embed it directly D:


And so, I was bored after dinner. So I played it with myself. I’m pretty surprised at my vocabulary power. LOLOL. Who knew I actually knew quite a number of 3 character words. I try not to cheat with people names XD

사무실 – 실내화 – 화요일 – 일요일 – 일회용 – 용감남 – 남이섬 – 섬나라 – 라디오 – 오미차 – 차형사 – 사형수 – 수영복 – 복분자 – 자연사 – 사장실 – 실용화 – 화장품 – 품의서 – 서양식 – 식습관 – 관리자 – 자연미 – 미식가 – 가상적 – 적나라 – 라면물 – 물냉면 – 면느리 – 리니지 – 지하철 – 철학자 – 자존심 – 심사원 – 원자탄 – 탄탄면 – 면세점 – 점쟁이 – 이질화 – 화장장 – 장례식 – 식중독 – 독립성 – 성푹행 – 행운목 – 목적지 – 지옥도 – 도서관 – 관리비 – 비행기 – 기자단

hahaha. Maybe some of it is wrong. I dunno. I just listed whatever I could think of. lol.

This is actually a good way of improving your vocabulary power. Seriously, someone, please implement it in Korean classes 😀 😀 😀

    I used to wonder why the multiplication tables game was so hard. So I did what you did – tried the game by myself. Heh. Somehow it is much harder under rhythmic pressure…

    “구구단을 외자…구구단을 외자…!”

    I seriously just finished catching up on all of 런닝맨 because it’s my favorite variety show and I can’t get enough of it! haha They played that in 런닝맨 episode but instead of three characters, they used two. I’m not sure if it’s the called the same thing though. Aha I wish I could play too but my vocabulary is still that of maybe a middle schooler? haha

    I know a good site that has all of the 런닝맨 episodes if you’re interested in watching. I seriously LOVE it. ㅋㅋㅋ

      hehe! yeah i think the two character version is so much easier ><;; I don't think it's a good idea for me to start on another new show (and possible addiction) now hahaha. XD
