Dear K-Pop fans, especially SHINee fans:
We’ve heard your requests loud and clear! This week, we thought about covering the latest SHINee song, “Sherlock”, but unfortunately, it turned out to be quite tricky to find useful expressions in the lyrics to use in everyday conversations. Perhaps this is because the theme of the song is a character from a novel, but the lyrics are a bit deceptive and impractical to use in conversation. In fact, we’ve found that most of SHINee’s songs have similar lyrics.
To still give you some SHINee, we went back to 4 years ago and chose to dissect their debut song, “누나 너무 예뻐.” As far as we remember, this song stood out on so many levels and was a perfect choice to help introduce SHINee to the world. The music, the choreography, the styles of the 5 handsome guys who can sing and dance……….
Okay! That’s enough fangirling! Let’s cut to the chase! 🙂
Do you know the name of Korea in Korean? Yes, it’s 한국. But did you know that there’s another way to call Korea in Korean? 대한민국 is a more formal name of Korea. If you are talking about Korea in a rather formal situation, how about calling it 대한민국 instead of calling it 한국? Or, you can also hear this name when people cheer for the Korean national team at sport matches such as the World Cup or the Olympics.
