if you've never learned korean language, it's best not to try to speak in korean with them. i once told a male idol that he's 'kyeopta' and he could not understand what i said. it's literally the easiest word and yet he could not understand. don't even try

You know, as someone who's studied foreign languages for YEARS and traveled abroad extensively, that is about the worst advice to give to anyone learning any new language! Even if they CAN'T understand what you say, they see you trying to learn their language, which is a huge compliment!!!

It's not kyeopta. It's guiyeopda but shortened because it's sounds sort of the same. However, if you pronounce it in the most English (as the language, not the general place) way you could, of course they won't understand. If you want to learn, always learn the pronunciations with the words because it's useless to learn the words. Maybe that way, you can write it to them but seriously? No. Another easier way to communicate to your fav idol is probably just stanning a foreign member/a member that can speak a language you speak but hey no language barriers can stop you

I was more looking along the lines of, "Hey you, I wanna sex you so hard that you won't be able to walk right for the next week!"

How do you translate "the baby is yours"? Quick answers are appreciated, because I fully expect that I need those words soon.

How about NO = = More like 10 Korean words you need to know to embarrass yourself in front of a kpop star

Withtheshadows JamlessCookies Sunday, October 16, 2016

I just realized they aren't even words. They're full sentences!

To all non koreans: Don't use these translations, this is basically google translate, it's just not how we koreans talk, it's awkward and if you use this on koreans, they won't understand what you're saying.

snsdmiyoung Sally_VIPArmy Thursday, September 22, 2016 The translations are awkward, but they are easily understandable. In all honesty, I think the translator did a fine job. The original English phrases are the problem.

Sally_VIPArmy snsdmiyoung Thursday, September 22, 2016

Lol no, I'm a fluent english speaker and I'm korean as well. The english phrases are correct. The translator just sucks

rim_deok_jeon Sally_VIPArmy Friday, September 23, 2016

Take advice from the origin people. Got it, thanks. :D

snsdmiyoung Sally_VIPArmy Friday, September 23, 2016

Lol no. You are greatly exaggerating the faults of the translations. If you are Korean in any way, shape, or form, you would easily understand what they are saying.

Black_wind Thursday, September 22, 2016

some of those translations are so awkward.... using 당신 is really.... eh (not to even mention how you really should not say some of those things to idols)(but when i coincidentally met two of those people who have that song called Fantasy, all my Korean, which i can speak, flew away from my brain from the shock so maybe even questionable app would help,if there was a time for that)

Withtheshadows Black_wind Sunday, October 16, 2016

Ikr, everytime I see dangshin/dangsin on google translate, I never bother to even read it

bassbambi Thursday, September 22, 2016

Seriously why should anyone in the rigth state of mind need the first sentence when meeting an Idol.and nope I can't se eit in anyway to be funny ...

Voldemin_2 Thursday, September 22, 2016

K-Pop already imports so many K-Pop Idols from America/Canada/English speaking countries etc,these idols can speak english so it's not necessary

Withtheshadows Voldemin_2 Sunday, October 16, 2016

Yeah, also China so Chinese fans/Chinese speaking fans can just speak Chinese to them.
