Episode #49: Twerking?


So yea when dating someone from another culture, you sometimes forget that you guys will just not know or understand popular culture references from the past or even right now. Miley Cyrus has gotten a lot of attention lately and a lot of it for twerking which she seems to be obsessed with. I don’t know how we got on the topic of her, but when I brought up twerking, Hyo obviously didn’t know what it was.

Her pronunciation of it was hilarious but cute as well. I thought it would be best if the knowledge of twerking be kept from her because I wish I didn’t know about this horrible abomination of a dance that has been cast upon society….though she might Google it after this post.

Remember that romanization is only a tool! Try not to depend on it too much and try learning the Korean alphabet and how to pronounce the letters properly and you will have a much easier time learning.

Some great books to get your started are Korean Made Simple: A beginner's guide to learning the Korean language and Become a Hangeul Master: Learn to Read and Write Korean Characters

    Miley needs to reconnect with her roots…or something. Or just disappear…or something.
