ONE OK ROCK, or How I Practice Writing in Korean

Aaaaaah!!! ONE OK ROCK has released the full-length version of The Beginning on YouTube and it’s awesooooomeeeee!!! \(^o^)/

I’ve preordered my copy from YesAsia.

In January this year, that’s about 6 months after I started learning Korean on my own, I wrote my love confession to ONE OK ROCK in Korean, even though they’re Japanese. (^_^;)

This is how I practice writing in Korean:

1. Think up some sentences in Japanese.
2. Use Google Translate to translate them into Korean.
3. Check Korean grammar book and Naver online dictionary to fix Google translation.
4. Post my Korean sentences on Lang-8 and have nice Korean native speakers correct them.

You can read my 작문 (composition) below:

저는 요즘 일본의 록밴드 원 오크 록 (ONE OK ROCK) 노래를 듣는 재미에 빠진 것 같아요.
