Yes. A common way to nickname people in Chinese is to address them as 阿 = A/Ah or Xiao, then either their first or middle name. Ahhhh I see. Is it like Japanese where -kun or -chan is attached? And is a/ah and xiao directed towards a certain gender, or can be used interchangeably? I suppose it's si...

Call of the Country (2010)

I can't believe there isn't a thread for this drama! I started watching part of the fourth episode on television and was totally sucked into it. I'm so sad that this series isn't getting more attention... the acting, cast, storyline, and just everything is amazing! Anyone else into this drama ATM? 8...

japan had annexed korea in the past, and for koreans, it's not a pleasant memory, even to those who hadn't lived during that period. koreans are uber nationalistic, and when it comes to soccer in the world cup, or baseball in WBC, they have the mentality that korea should defeat japan at all costs....

from what i know, chinese and korean have different sentence structures and such. in my opinion, chinese is definitely more versatile and since some korean words are derived from chinese characters, it'll help a lot learning chinese first. but it won't help you much for grammar, i think.

i like to eat hot rice mixed with soy sauce and raw egg. it sounds nasty, but it's actually really yummy ^_^ it's true that you can get salmonella or whatnot from eating raw eggs, so i only eat it once in a while.

eggs in ramyun/ramen are the bomb.

It's cause Koreans don't like Japan, cause of what Japan did I think. My friend told me about Japan and Korea. Some old school history. The Japanese even created a word in Korean that is racist to Koreans... chousenji or something. duno how to spell korean. yup, you're correct. i think the word was...

I don't think it only asks for beauty but acting too because the poll ask "who's better?" LOL. I KNOW, HUH? it's funny because a lot of people are superficial and tend to judge celebrities by their looks. it's not a bad and definitely not a good thing, but it just happens =_=; ehh... i wouldn't say...
