Today I sent one Korean sentence to Catch The Wave – Arirang Radio for the weekly session “Hey Korean Mission”. The word of the week was ‘반갑다’ or ‘to be happy to meet/hear…’.
Anyone can participate by sending messages on the message board or Catch the Wave’s Facebook page or e-mail but I don’t know the e-mail address.
As always, I was excited when DJ Jae Min Park and the Korean teacher Mr. Hyunwoo from Talk To Me In Korean (http://www.talktomeinkorean.com/) read my sentence on the air. I had a good giggle when DJ Jae Min said,”I think she’s Korean!”. Isn’t it the nicest compliment ever! They made my day. 😀
I recorded the part where they read my message.
J (Jae Min): Covering the 1st message from Andini from Indonesia.
“Hey Korean Mission: 반갑다. 캐치 더 웨이브 패밀리가 박재민 DJ를 반갑게 맞이했어요.”
H (Hyunwoo): What? This is a perfect sentence.
J: This is perfect! To translate this is: The Catch the Wave family welcomed DJ Jae Min Park.
H: Yeah. 반갑게, in a manner that they’re glad.
J: Oh yeah, yeah.
H: 반갑게 맞이했어요.
J: Wow, wow. This is perfect. She’s Korean! I think she’s Korean.
H: But it’s from Andini, from Indonesia.
J: Andini is a very Koreanized name.
J: An Di Ni. Hahaha.
H: I don’t think so.
J: Thank you for the message.
H: Let’s not change other people’s nationalities easily.
J: OK. But still, this is perfect.
H: Your Korean is that good, right?
