    OMG. When i started learning korean it was hard for me to find a site that can help me to learn about this language.The reason why i want to learn this language its because of Korean Dramas that we have watched here in the Philippines. Now i really love to learn and it makes me more excited because of TTMIK. If i have a chance to watch new videos it makes me happy.More knowledge to gain from here.
    Thank you for this web.
