How to Learn Korean As Quickly As Possible: Kpop and Kdramas

The popularity of Korean entertainment may have started with Psy’s “Gangam Style” but the trend seems to be sticking well with new artists. Across the globe, more and more people are drawn in into the Kpop craze (also called the Hallyu wave).

There are many different styles of Korean pop music, each with their own musical styles and fashion. But, generally, they are all referred to as Kpop. The stars are called Kpop “idols” and everyone wants to get a glimpse of their latest fashion.

There are many different styles of Korean clothing. There is airport fashion, stage wear, and city clothing aplenty to keep the Kpop fans always interested in the new looks and styles. Kpop outfits has become a global phenomenon that includes clothes, makeup, and other types of Korean music and products.

The filming and distribution logistics for Korean entertainment products are fairly simple as the Korean government is very much a part of the global industry as you can see here: http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/k-town/6828140/best-k-pop-songs-2015

Korean movie stars and singers are now even staring in US-made films. Rain, a huge star in Korea, recently starred in the hit action movie Ninja Assassin. He continues to land roles in American Movies as a result of that films’ success.

learning the korean languageIn addition to Korean makeup and clothes, another aspect of Korean culture that is making headway in the United States is the Korean language. There are many Korean TV shows like Boys Over Flowers, Running Man, She Was Pretty, We Got Married, and much more that have fans all over the world. Most people watch their favorite Korean shows with subtitles. But, when you watch enough, you can’t help but pick up a few phrases.

Many Kpop fans are now learning the Korean language so that they can understand their favorite songs and shows more. They progress very quickly because it doesn’t really feel like work. It’s actually fun! Learning Korean is surprisingly simple compared to other languages.

hangulThe Korean alphabet, called Hangul, is actually very new compared to other languages. It was invented several centuries ago by a Korean king who wanted the people to have their own language, independent of the government that was over them at the time. So, he designed a Korean alphabet that is intentionally easy to learn and understand: http://kpopfashion.net/learn-korean/

Thanks to this, Americas find it much easier to learning Korean than other eastern Asian languages, which tend to be very difficult for non-native speakers. There are a variety of programs to learn Hangul and, Hanguk, the spoken language. Rocket Korean is a popular one, but there are a variety of others like Rosetta Stone found here: http://www.rosettastone.com/learn-korean

As many have found, learning Korean may be a challenge. But, if you have the right motivation, you enjoy it, and you have a good teacher, you will be speaking fluently before you know it. So, enjoy your Korean fashion, kpop music, kdramas, and anything else that helps you practice your Korean. Listening will help you tremendously to fine-tune your listening skills and be able to pronounce your words well.

Giant Bean Bags

Hello! I just wanted to share a new edition to our office, our massive bean bag. It’s huge. We got the black microsuede 8 ft from here:

Giant, Cozy, and Comfortable

It’s really comfortable and we’re enjoying it a lot. It’s great for the staff to use to rest their backs and relax. A lot of our work is done on the computer while sitting in an office chair. It’s nice to have something that you can really stretch out in. Before we got this giant bean bag, if we wanted to stretch out our backs our only option was to just lay out on the floor. In an office environment, there isn’t really anywhere to rest your back in lying-down position.

But now, we’re very happy with this giant bean bag. If you decide to get one, make sure that you have enough room for it. You may think that 8 ft is not that big, but remember that it’s talking about the diameter, so 8 feet long by 8 feet wide. That’s a BIG space and if the room isn’t big enough it might not fit, or even take up the entire room and you’ll have nowhere to walk. You’ll have a nice comfy bean bag, but no room for anything else!

Different Bean Bag Options

We considered getting one of the cheap ones from Walmart but we checked them out and they weren’t very comfortable and didn’t look like they would last very long. You really do get what you pay for, so we decided to just go with quality and get something from Giant Ben Bag Shop (giantbeanbagshop.com).

Here’s a pretty funny video about what you can do with one of these, though it’s not the kind we bought.

If you’re wondering what the origins are if this unique furniture item, you can check it out here on Wikipedia.

Mango Africano Commercial in Spanish

We are proud to announce a brand new commercial that we have just finished filming for a popular weight loss supplement. This nutritional supplement has been used by many Hollywood celebrities to great success to slim down for their roles in movies.

The Spanish-speaking community has also taken note of this popular weight loss supplement. So, now we have filmed a television commercial showcasing one of the hottest supplements in the Latin-American Market: Mango Africano, (Spanish for African Mango).

As you can see by our new commercial productions, this weight loss dietary aide helps to burn fat by reducing cravings for carbs and sugar. There are several other benefits as well, but those are explained well in the final edit of the commercial. Many of our English-speaking fans will likely not see our newest project release, so we decided to showcase it here!

mango africano product

The Mango Africano pills have a good track record of success so were happy to be involved in the television commercial production for this supplement. It has been well-reviewed and we have seen many testimonials demonstrating its effectiveness.

Compared to filming a TV show, filming a commercial has unique challenges and advantages. While the end product is far shorter, the commercial intent of the product has to be spot on. So, in many ways filming a commercial can be more difficult than a television program. This is because the purpose is not solely to entertain, but to also educate and persuade the viewer to buy the product.

You can also check out the official Pastillas de Mango Africano Soundcloud to hear some more tunes.

We have enjoyed working on this commercial and would like to thank the producers of the Mango Africano product and all the hard work that went into their product. We would also like to thank the director, Mike Shields, as well as the spokes-models and crew for working tirelessly to make this project come to life. The writers of the script also deserve a mention for clearly and impactfully presenting the benefits of the Mango Africano product with their work as well.
