    Thank you for the lesson! Could one of the teachers talk about the use of sarcasm in Korean? From what I can tell… it’s not used very much. Or at least, not nearly as much as it is in American English. As an example, a lot of people say “just kidding” after they have just been proven wrong about something, as a way to say “never mind.” It’s like saying, “I was just kidding about XYZ… I knew it was ABC all along.” That’s obviously a very sarcastic/joking phrase.. but is there a Korean equivalent? It seems to me that Koreans would just say “아.. 아니네” or “틀렸네.”

    • Thanks! That would be a great lesson topic 🙂 Sarcasm is not so prevalent, but there are some expressions that people often use, such as “잘도 하겠다” (oh sure, you’ll certainly do it, right?) 🙂

    Hi! I generally like this series, but the format of the video is not working for me. Almost 3 minutes for something that is easily explained within 5 seconds? Remove the overlong intro and the useless talk around it, just the 30 seconds of Hyunwoo would have been sufficient. 🙂

    Apart from that… you guys do an awesome job.

      Everyone has a different way of learning. It’s better to over explain than under explain. Sure, you understood it quickly, as did I, but some people take more time. These guys are awesome; I never feel like I need more clarification after watching any of their videos. That’s actually pretty rare.
