Not Korean, but I often find myself wanting to use Konglidh like 'Fighting!' and 'some'.

After years of watching variety shows I occasionally pop out an omo or eomma when I get scared by someone.

Not out loud bc I'm not tryna act like a Koreaboo but I often want to use "heol". It's fun to say and isn't that far off from "huh"

No because I'm not Korean and I don't speak Korean. lmao To each their own, but it was soooo cringey listening to all of these non Korean kids speaking Korean words at Kcon LA. But I mean, I know tons of people from Korea and other countries who use English words the same way....but yeah. idk. my own personal issue.

I absolutely am LOVING Tiffany rn. I think this version of herself is so much more true and FUN. I just wish I liked her English music more.

i never paid much attention to tiffany while in snsd but i'm loving her solo career. i almost bought one of her h&m jackets lmao
i (very briefly) studied korean and i used to count everything in korean in order to remember the numbers and practice. it's a habit that i still do now but usually to myself and not around other people

Omg korean numbers. The worst to remember

I use hwaiting a lot online. In real life, aigoo sometimes slips out, but not in convos.

I occasionally practice Korean with my sister.

No lmao. I've been there done that had the weeaboo friends who won't stop saying kawaii and waifu, got the tshirt

It doesn't get any less embarrassing

After years of listening to kpop/watching the activities of my faves I've definitely figured out the auditory cadence and structure of the language though which makes it so much easier to pick out words and understand them. I really feel now more than ever that I should put that to use and actually learn korean. Being able to understand someone speaking to you has always been what's held me back in learning other languages.

Yeah, after years of listening to Korean I feel like I should put in more effort to learn the language properly, but then I don't want to turn my leisure time into another job.

When I was in Korea, yes. Even when talking to my Korean friend in English, if there was a word that described something better than the English I'd pop it in there. You have no idea how useful a word like ahjussi is, for example. Haha. Now it's just part of my inner monologue. I did the same thing when I was learning French.

She's so bubbly, I love it. She looked really happy she got to swear lmao

I use about 4 different languages, but only inside my head (weirdly enough, I use my native language the least). I think the only time I think in my native language is if I'm doing some really important paperwork (taxes or something) and I have to concentrate on what I'm doing.

Taking mental notes on some of the slang.

Can't wait till she releases a full album stateside.
