Being a linguistic student, I know you can’t say that one language sounds more educated/sophisticated over another. But that doesn’t stop me from feeling that Korean is a beautiful language. When I read certain phrases/sentences, I find that beautiful ideas are expressed so aptly in the language that no translation will ever bring out its beauty to the same extent. ^^
I’m reading a short story in the Yonsei Reading Book 6. The title is 사람과 사람 사이 written by 법정. I’m not sure if this can be found on the internet, but if you managed to find it, do read it. It talks about what is a real, sincere friendship and about relationships in general. I’m too lazy to summarize, but I’m awed.
진정한 만남은 상호간의 눈뜸이다. 영혼의 진동이 없으면 그건 만남이 아니라 한때의 마주침이다.
