Korean Fashion Terms (1) Skirt, Pants

1. 치마(Chima) - Skirt
Even though Skirt is 치마, when we talk about mini skirt or long skirt. We just use our Konglish pronunciation.

미니 스커트(Mini Seukeoteu) for  Mini Skirt

Rihanna is such a barbie doll.

Their skirts look too short. -_-;;;

롱 스커트 (Long Seukeoteu) for Long Skirt (Maxi Skirt)

This can be a long skirt, I guess. 

It is long, just with a slit.

3. 바지 (Baji) - Pants

반바지(Banbaji) for shorts
Me and My baby. :)

Hyomin (Korean singer)

Hmmm... Will you at least find your size?

Shorts that are very short are called 핫팬츠(Hatpenteu). 핫팬츠 is from Hot Pants. I guess if shorts are very short, they make you hot?? Anyway,
Too short.

Please.... don't....

Are these panties or shorts?

A dad in Utah got so fed up with his teenage daughter's short shorts, and he decided to wear these.

Yes, you are the best Dad EVER. lol.

긴바지(Kinbaji) for long pants

I like this color. :)

Victoria, don't you think the pants are a bit too long?

This is not how you wear long pants, dude.

Thanks for reading the post!!!

While googling, I found Blake Lively's beautiful dress. I want to have it!

Please wait for the next post, Korean Fashion Terms (2)!!

Top 3 Sexiest Celebrities in Korea

How do you say "Sexy celebrity" in Korean?

"Celebrity" in Korean is 스타(Seuta). 스타 is from "Star" in English.
"Sexy" is 섹시한(Sexihan). -한 makes a none an adjective.

A Korean TV show did a survey asking who the sexiest celebrity(가장 섹시한 스타)?

가장(Kajang) means the most.

The first place was won by Hyori Lee.

I think she is not only the sexiest but also the prettiest. 

The second sexiest celebrity is Hyuna from 4 Minute.

She looks very sexy as well.

The third sexiest celebrity is a man, TOP from Big Bang.
He even got chosen as the sexiest male musician on

I think his eyes are sexy. 
The interesting thing is you can hardly find his topless pictures. People think that even though he doesn't show his body, he is still sexy.

But, I still think that Taeyang from Big Bang is much sexier. He is my favorite. :)

I like his smile. I love his eyes! So pretty and sexy!!!! Hehehe.

Who is your 가장 섹시한 스타?

Places to go when Korean people go on a date

Obviously, when Korean people go out on a date, they do the same things as other people such as going to a coffee shop, eating at a restaurant, going to the movies, going to a sport event, etc.

However, there are some places where Korean people like to go when they are hanging out with their friends or dating.

1. 노래방( Noraebang) Karaoke

Karaoke is a place where you can sing with your friends. Korean people love to sing. Even couples go to noraebang to sing together.

2. 커피숍(Keopishob) Coffee shop

As you can see, coffee shops are partitioned. They want to have private tables for them, so lots of coffee shops which are partitioned are popular among couples.

It is like you have your own private space to drink coffee (or make out?).

3. DVD방 (Dibidibang) DVD room

This is a place where you can watch movies in a very small theater. When you go inside, you choose what movie you want to watch and then watch it in a room.

Since DVD rooms can be used as hotels (some people go there to make out and more!), minors can not go there.

4. 멀티방(Meoltibang) Multi room

Nowadays, there are more multi rooms in Korea. There, you can watch movies, sing songs, play games, and drink coffee. You can basically do anything there. You pay per hour and spend time there doing anything.

Even though, the rooms look bright and cute and are advertising that the rooms can be used by minors, since the rooms cannot be supervised by adults, there are rumors that minors will be prohibited to go there soon.

Anyway, Koreans usually go to these kinds of places when they are dating other than going on a picnic, swimming, hiking, driving, etc. like any other people. :)

How to greet 'Happy New Year.' in Korean

Happy New Year, everyone!!!!! :)
2013 has started...
It is about time to make a new year's resolution and start a new beginning.

Korean people say "새해 복 많이 받으세요(Sehe bok mani badeuseyo)." when we greet each other around new year.
새해(Sehe) means New year. 새is 'new'. 해 is 'year'. 복 is 'fortune, luck, happiness'. 많이 is 'a lot'. 받으세요 means 'please receive.' So, all together, it means 'Please receive lots of fortune that new year brings.

I hope this year will be really an exciting year for you and me!

Everyone! 새해 복 많이 받으세요!



Yuna Kim (Figure skater)

SNSD (Girl's generation)
