For those who may not speak Korean, or who are still learning, it can be a total hassle in the K-Pop world. Your idols schedules are posted in Korean, waiting for subs/translations can be a drag and probably the most mind-boggling thing is when they post on their personal SNS in Korean.
But can we blame them? It is their mother language after all. Luckily for us, Naver has come to our rescue with an app that die-hard Korean fans will truly need! Papago, a translation app that has mastered the needs of the beginner to the intermediate, is designed to make you a master of 한국어 (Korean)!
Now if you are learning Korean, or know a decent amount of Korean but still need a dictionary when posting in Korean like myself, then Papago will get the job done and help you out for your next SNS post.
Here are 10 awesome phrases you can use to show your idols some love on their Instagram!
*Note* Feel free to swap out some names, locations or whatever else to personalize your message!
1. I love your new song! Please come sing in my country.
As simple as it seems, it is the number one thing we can't resist saying aside from "I Love You!"
2. What is your favorite song on the album?
We always want to know more about our idols, especially their personal taste! Find out which track speaks to them the most the next time you post!
3. When will you have another comeback?
Sometimes idols have us waiting longer than a line at Starbucks or the DMV. At least some of the wait will be over if you use Papago to ask them this important question.
4. Jackson's laugh is so cute! I really love GOT7!
Although we love groups like GOT7, Seventeen, f(x) and even Girls' Generation as a whole, we need to let our bias now how much we love them more than any group member or entire group out there!
5. I wish I could have her style! CL has the best style!
The hottest guys and sexiest girls trend when it comes to fashion posts on Instagram- with K-Pop idols being no exception. Let your oppas and noonas know what they are doing is too damn irresistible!
6. I will come to your concert in Korea! Hope you see this message.
We all know world tours still mean all of Asia. So it may be time to break the bank, hitch a flight to Korea and let your favorite idols know you're doing it. They will know you're the ultimate fan!
7. Wow! You and I like the same song~
Idols love sharing their favorite songs or supporting other artists on Instagram. Why not express your support, and exquisite music taste, in Korean!
8. Happy Birthday Oppa! I hope you have a great day and receive lots of presents!
The SNS world goes completely nuts when it is an idols birthday! The only way to stand out among the crowd of birthday messages? Use Papago ASAP to translate your heart-warming birthday message... or messages. Spam away, but in Korean.
9. Hyuna is the best dancer in Korea! She is the queen! #Slaaaaaay
Let your idol know that not only are they your reason for breathing, but also your reason for learning Korean too! Once they see your awesome compliments, they will appreciate your kind words and efforts of learning the Korean language.
10. Come to New York! We love you!
Idols go on vacations, visit cities for MVs and among other reasons. Make sure your city is the next big stop by convincing them to visit your country/city next!
