I won something from radio show “Super K-pop” on Arirang Radio today! I’m so happy!
So the radio host, Sam Carter (a member of Korean boyband Lunafly), announces a Korean word (with its English translation) and listeners can leave messages related to the word, on the message board. Every day, Sam will pick one lucky winner who will receive a K-pop CD and a signed postcard.
The word of the day for today was “사과” which means “apology” and “apple”. I logged in to the website, left my short message on Message Board. I giggled the whole time when Sam finally read my message on air. I was surprised that I was also chosen as the winner for today! Waaaa…やった～ 땡잡았어요. 😀
I even recorded the part when Sam read my message and announced my name as the winner because I was so excited.
I wrote that if 사과 can mean ‘apple’ and ‘apology’, then 사과 드립니다 can mean ‘I give you apples’ and also ‘I give an apology’. Sam said I had ‘very good Korean understanding’. 😀
So I won a signed K-pop CD by VAV “Brotherhood” and a signed postcard by Sam himself. Thank you, Sam, I’ll be your fan forever. 😀
As far as I know, all K-pop related shows on Arirang Radio give away K-pop CD every day to listeners around the world. So there’s huge chance to win. If you’re interested, you can figure out how to participate from each show’s official pages.
