The Difference Between Korean and English Adjectives | Korean FAQ

Koreabridge - Mon, 2024-04-29 15:10

Korean adjectives are often misused when speaking, not only because adjectives in Korean conjugate, but because the WAY that they conjugate isn't how you might expect. Misusing adjectives is an incredibly common mistake in Korean, and in this video I explain how to solve it.

      Jangyuksa Temple – 장육사 (Yeongdeok, Gyeongsangbuk-do)

      Koreabridge - Sun, 2024-04-28 23:43
      A Mid-18th Century Painting of Bohyeon-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Power) Riding a Six-Tusked Elephant inside the Daeung-jeon Hall at Jangyuksa Temple in Yeongdeok, Gyeongsangbuk-do. Temple History

      Jangyuksa Temple is located to the south of Mt. Unseosan (519.9 m) in northern Yeongdeok, Gyeongsangbuk-do. The temple was first constructed by the monk Naong (1320-1376) during the reign of King Gongmin of Goryeo (r. 1351-74).

      Jangyuksa Temple was later destroyed by a brush fire during the reign of King Sejong (r. 1418-1450). It was at this time that a rather interesting temple myth surrounds the rebuild of Jangyuksa Temple. During this rebuild, a carpenter volunteered to help reconstruct the Daeung-jeon Hall. He did this to help pray for his mother’s recovery. When the construction was almost complete, and there were only the last four pillars left to be added to the main hall, the carpenter heard that his mother had died. Devastated, and unable to hide his grief, the carpenter left the construction of the Daeung-jeon Hall before its completion. The loss of his mother, or at least this is what the carpenter told himself, was caused by the lack of sincerity of his prayers. After the departure of the grieving carpenter, a new carpenter was called in to complete the main hall. But because of his lack of expertise, the main hall was completed with the bowing of the four remaining pillars.

      This Daeung-jeon Hall, and the rest of the temple grounds, would be completely destroyed, this time, during the Imjin War (1592-98). Not long after, Jangyuksa Temple would be rebuilt, again. And the latest large scale restoration took place in 1900.

      Jangyuksa Temple is home to one Korean Treasure, it’s the “Dry-lacquered Seated Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva of Jangnyuksa Temple,” which is Korean Treasure #993. In addition to this one Korean Treasure, the temple is home to four provincial treasures, as well.

      Temple Layout

      You first approach the temple grounds up a twisting country road, until you eventually arrive at the temple parking lot. From the temple parking lot, you’ll get great views to your right of the sprawling temple grounds with a meandering stream to your left.

      Mounting the stone set of stairs, you’ll find the Jong-ru Pavilion halfway up your climb. Housed inside this bell pavilion is a beautiful bronze bell. After viewing the Jong-ru Pavilion, you’ll pass under the temple’s Boje-ru Pavilion. Just make sure to watch your head when passing under the pavilion because the ceiling is quite low.

      Appearing on the other side of the Boje-ru Pavilion, you’ll finally be standing in the centre of the main temple courtyard. Straight ahead of you is the Daeung-jeon Hall. The Daeung-jeon Hall is Gyeongsangbuk-do Tangible Cultural Property #138.

      The exterior walls are adorned in simple dancheong colours. Stepping inside the Daeung-jeon Hall, which was renovated in 1900, you’ll find a triad of statues resting on the main altar. In the centre sits Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha), who is joined on either side by Munsu-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Wisdom) and Bohyeon-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Power). This triad is backed by a stunning “The Sermon on Vulture Peak Painting,” or “Yeongsan Hoesang-do – 영산 회상도” in Korean. It’s believed that the painting dates back to the mid-18th century, and it’s Gyeongsangbuk-do Tangible Cultural Property #373.

      To the right of the main altar is an elaborate Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural), as well as an older mural dedicated to Chilseong (The Seven Stars) located between the main altar and the Shinjung Taenghwa. And to the left of the main altar, you’ll find a mural dedicated to Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife). This painting is also a Gyeongsangbuk-do Tangible Cultural Property #374. But if you look around the interior of the Daeung-jeon Hall including the walls, the ceiling, and beams, you’ll find a wonderful variety of mid-18th century murals that include murals dedicated to Munsu-bosal, Bohyeon-bosal, Bicheon (Flying Heavenly Deities), the Nahan (The Historical Disciples of the Buddha). In total, there are 18 of these paintings, and they are a Gyeongsangbuk-do Tangible Cultural Property #563.

      Back outside the Daeung-jeon Hall, you’ll find a beautiful, modern three-story pagoda to the right of the main hall. The base of the structure is adorned with images of the Eight Legions, while the first body stones are adorned with various Buddhas including Yaksayeorae-bul (The Buddha of Medicine) and Birojana-bul (The Buddha of Cosmic Energy).

      To the left of the Daeung-jeon Hall, on the other hand, is the temple’s Gwaneum-jeon Hall. Like the Daeung-jeon Hall, the Gwaneum-jeon Hall is adorned with simple dancheong colours. As for the interior, and resting on the main altar, is a solitary image dedicated to Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion). This is the “Dry-lacquered Seated Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva of Jangnyuksa Temple,” which is Korean Treasure #993. This statue stands 86 cm in height, and it was made in 1395 through the donations of the officials and people of Yonghae-bu District. It was re-gilt in 1407. The face of the Bodhisattva looks determined, and its overall stance is slightly bent. Compared to other Buddha and Bodhisattva statues of the early 14th century, this statue emphasizes the decorations adorning its body like the necklace and crown than other features on the statue. Backing this statue is a modern multi-armed and headed image of the Bodhisattva of Compassion. And filling out the rest of the interior of the shrine hall are tiny statues of Gwanseeum-bosal.

      And to the left of the Gwaneum-jeon Hall is the Dokseong/Sanshin-gak Hall. Like the previously mentioned shrine hall, this shaman shrine hall’s exterior walls are adorned in simple dancheong colours. Stepping inside the Dokseong/Sanshin-gak Hall, you’ll find a pair of paintings. The painting to the right is dedicated to a rather surprised-looking image of Dokseong (The Lonely Saint), while the mural to the left is dedicated to Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit). The Mountain Spirit is joined by a wild-eyed image of a tiger.

      How To Get There

      Without the use of your own vehicle, Jangyuksa Temple is virtually impossible to get to. With nearly a two and a half hour ride on public transportation and multiple bus changes along the way, a vehicle of your own is almost a must. However, if you don’t have your own mode of transportation, the next best thing might be a taxi from the Yeongdeok Terminal. If you take a taxi to get to Jangyuksa Temple, it’ll take about 33 minutes, over 32 km, and it’ll cost you 41,000 won (one way).

      Overall Rating: 7/10

      The rather obvious highlight to Jangyuksa Temple is the Daeung-jeon Hall. In total, it houses some four provincial treasures; some of which, I wouldn’t be surprised become Treasures in the not too distant future. Of particular note are the eighteen mid-18th century paintings that adorn every surface inside the main hall, as well as the pair of provincial paintings dedicated to Jijang-bosal and the “The Sermon on Vulture Peak Painting” backing the main altar triad. In addition to the Daeung-jeon Hall, you should also look for the stunning “Dry-lacquered Seated Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva of Jangnyuksa Temple,” which also just so happens to be a Korean Treasure, as well as the mural dedicated to the Mountain Spirit inside the shaman shrine hall. Overall, Jangyuksa Temple is little known, as a result there aren’t too many crowds, which makes for a rather tranquil experience.

      The stone stairs leading up to the Boje-ru Pavilion. The Jong-ru Pavilion along the way. The bronze bell housed inside the Jong-ru Pavilion. The Daeung-jeon Hall at Jangyuksa Temple. The main altar triad backed by the mid-18th century “The Sermon on Vulture Peak Painting.” A look around the interior of the Daeung-jeon Hall. The Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife) painting inside the Daeung-jeon Hall that’s Gyeongsangbuk-do Tangible Cultural Property #374. Some of the 18 paintings adorning the interior walls of the Daeung-jeon Hall that are from the mid-18th century. Joined by this mid-18 century mural dedicated to Munsu-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Wisdom). The modern three-story pagoda to the right of the main hall. And to the left of the Daeung-jeon Hall is the Gwaneum-jeon Hall at Jangyuksa Temple. The “Dry-lacquered Seated Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva of Jangnyuksa Temple” housed inside the Gwaneum-jeon Hall that also just so happens to be Korean Treasure #993. The Dokseong/Sanshin-gak Hall. The painting dedicated to Dokseong (The Lonely Saint) inside the shaman shrine hall. Joined by this mural dedicated to Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit).—

      On Saturday, April 27th, HQ Gwangan's happy to host one of our favorite local indie bands and a new but already pretty legendary band coming down from Daegu! Here's details about the lineup:

      신도시 (Daegu)
      Featuring members of March Kings, one of my favorite Korean indie bands ever, Sindosi cites post-punk and British indie (especially the 90's Manchester scene) as influences. This is their first time playing HQ, but everybody I know in Daegu (and friends who've seen them at Ovantgarde in Busan) say they're absolutely fantastic. Check'em out at:

      https://www.instagram.com/band_sindosi/

      태평시간 (Busan)
      Featuring members of 우리들, 소음발광, Greenvilla, and Barbie Dolls, 태평시간 are an outstandingly noisy indie four-piece that makes music to swoon to. They recently released their first EP, "Love Candle"--check it at:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_Mfus5ySOU
      https://www.instagram.com/taepyeong_official/

      There's a 5000 Won cover for the show, and 100% of that will go to the performing bands--it ain't cheap to rent a practice space, travel out to Busan, etc. plus these kids are great, so give 'em some cash for playing... and HQ's drinks are cheap, I promise! Music starts at 9:30. Get out here, friends.

      Exploring Seuldo Island: A Photographer’s Serendipitous Journey

      Koreabridge - Thu, 2024-04-25 13:30

      In the predawn hours, when most sane souls are still cocooned in the warmth of their beds, there’s a sacred magic brewing in the world. It’s the time when shadows dance differently, and light paints the sky in hues only the early risers witness. This is the time when Seuldo Island, nestled in the embrace of Dong-gu Ulsan, reveals its raw beauty to those willing to chase the dawn.

      My recent escapade to Seuldo was born from the ashes of a canceled photowalk, a casualty of unpredictable weather. But sometimes, the best adventures stem from unexpected beginnings. Armed with my camera and a craving for connection with the lens, I embarked on a solitary journey, seeking solace in the solitude of dawn.

      Seuldo, with its seaside cafes and Instagram-worthy canola flowers, is a siren song for many. But for me, the allure lies in the tranquil morning hours, where the world whispers secrets only the early risers can hear. As I stumbled out of bed, late yet eager, I found myself greeted by a celestial surprise—a massive moon lingering behind the lighthouse, casting a silver glow upon the waking world.

      With adrenaline coursing through my veins, I hastily set up my gear, grateful for the 70-200mm lens that framed the scene with perfection. As if scripted by fate, a fellow shutterbug emerged from the darkness, his energy mirroring my own. In the silent communion of photographers, we shared a moment, capturing the fleeting beauty of dawn with our lenses.

      With the sunrise as our muse, we danced with light and shadow, each click of the shutter a testament to our shared passion. And as quickly as our paths crossed, he vanished into the morning mist, leaving me to ponder my next destination.

      The allure of Gyeongju beckoned, its ancient charm calling to my wandering soul. Amidst centuries-old temples and blooming cherry blossoms, I found inspiration in every corner. The forest of “double blossoms” whispered tales of seasons past, their delicate petals a symphony of color against the backdrop of history.

      Amidst the tranquility of nature, I found my muse—a solitary tree adorned with pink blossoms, its branches reaching towards the heavens. In that moment, I became a storyteller, capturing the essence of time in a single frame.

      As I retraced my steps homeward, exhaustion mingled with euphoria, a testament to the day’s endeavors. In the quiet of my sanctuary, I marveled at the memories captured through my lens, each image a testament to the beauty of the world awakened.

      In a life filled with choices, I am grateful for the moments when I choose to chase the dawn, to embrace the unknown with open arms. For in those fleeting moments, I find not only photographs but fragments of my soul scattered amidst the pixels—a reminder that the greatest adventures lie just beyond the horizon.

      So here’s to Seuldo Island, to Gyeongju’s ancient allure, and to the serendipitous moments that shape our journey. May we continue to chase the dawn, one click of the shutter at a time, in search of stories yet untold.

      ~기는 & ~긴 Disagreeing | Live Class Abridged

      Koreabridge - Thu, 2024-04-25 01:02

      ~기는 (commonly shortened to ~긴) is from the ~기 nominalization form and the Topic Marker 는 (기 + 는) and has several uses, one of which is when disagreeing with someone else. It's also used when admitting something to someone, but not completely. I explain all of its major uses in this live stream.

      Note that this is the last live classroom until I return from Korea at the end of July. I hope to do a regular live stream while I'm there, as well as possibly another fan meetup in Seoul, so look forward to some more upcoming announcements soon!

      Unheungsa Temple – 운흥사 (Goseong, Gyeongsangnam-do)

      Koreabridge - Wed, 2024-04-24 23:08
      Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife) at Unheungsa Temple in Goseong, Gyeongsangnam-do. Temple History

      Unheungsa Temple is situated up a long valley between Mt. Bongamsan (434.6 m) and Mt. Baekamsan (403 m) to the far west of Goseong, Gyeongsangnam-do. Unheungsa Temple was first constructed in 676 A.D. by the famed monk Uisang-daesa (625-702 A.D.). Little is known about the temple until it was used to raise an army of some 6,000 warrior monks during the Imjin War (1592-98) and led by Samyeong-daesa (1544-1610). A large portion of the temple was destroyed at this time. It wasn’t until 1651 that the temple was partially rebuilt. The current Daeung-jeon Hall and Yeongsan-jeon Hall were reconstructed in 1731.

      Additionally, there was a bronze bell at Unheungsa Temple that was first made in 1690. However, during Japanese Colonial Rule (1910-45), it was smuggled off to Japan.

      Unheungsa Temple has two hermitages directly associated with it. They are Seodokam Hermitage and Cheonjinam Hermitage. It’s believed that Cheonjinam Hermitage was first founded in 1692, while the water of Seodokam Hermitage is so powerful that alcohol can’t be made using this hermitage water.

      In total, Unheungsa Temple is home to two Korean Treasures and five provincial treasures. The two Korean Treasures are the “Hanging Painting and Storage Chest of Unheungsa Temple,” which is Korean Treasure #1317; and the other is the “Buddhist Painting of Unheungsa Temple,” which is Korean Treasure #1694.

      Temple Layout

      You’ll first approach Unheungsa Temple up a long valley road. This secluded mountain road leads up to the equally secluded temple grounds. Along the way, you’ll pass by the stately Iljumun Gate. From the temple parking lot, and up a flight of stone stairs, you’ll see the newly built Boje-ru Pavilion. This newly constructed entry pavilion is beautifully perched on a large, stone barrier. You’ll pass through the first story of the structure and climb up a narrow set of a stairs as a modern, third-story pagoda comes into view.

      Beyond the modern three-story pagoda that stands all alone in the compact temple courtyard, you’ll find the Daeung-jeon Hall. The Daeung-jeon Hall is Gyeongsangnam-do Tangible Cultural Property #82. The Daeung-jeon Hall was destroyed during the Imjin War and reconstructed in 1731. The exterior walls to the main hall are adorned in simple dancheong colours. But the interior is far more elaborate than the exterior. Resting under three individual canopies are three large statues. The central image is dedicated to Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha), who is joined on either side by Amita-bul (The Buddha of the Western Paradise) and Yaksayeorae-bul (The Buddha of Medicine, and the Buddha of the Eastern Paradise). This triad is Gyeongsangnam-do Tangible Cultural Property #538.

      To the left of the main altar are a collection of three paintings. The first, and closest to the main altar, is a replica of the “Hanging Painting and Storage Chest of Unheungsa Temple.” The original, which dates back to 1730, is only brought out on the most important of days like Buddha’s Birthday. To the left of this smaller sized replica is a mural dedicated to Chilseong (The Seven Stars). And to the left of this shaman mural is a Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural). To the right of the main altar, on the other hand, is a stunning Gamno-do (Sweet Dew Mural) that dates back to 1730. It’s quite a large painting at 245.5 cm in height and 254 cm wide. It was created by the monk painter Uigyeom, who was a renowned painter in the Jeolla Province area during the 18th century along with 12 other painters. You’ll also find a painting dedicated to Dokseong (The Lonely Saint) in this area of the main hall, as well as a replica of the “Buddhist Painting of Unheungsa Temple, Goseong (Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva).” Like the Gamno-do, the original of this painting dates back to 1730, and it was also painted by Uigyeom. The original is Korean Treasure #1694. The interior of the Daeung-jeon Hall is packed with beautiful Buddhist artistry.

      To the right of the Daeung-jeon Hall is the Myeongbu-jeon Hall. Like the main hall, the exterior of the Myeongbu-jeon Hall is adorned in simple dancheong colours. Stepping inside the Myeongbu-jeon Hall, you’ll find a solitary green-haired image of Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife). Joining Jijang-bosal inside the Myeongbu-jeon Hall are the Siwang (The Ten Kings of the Underworld). They are large, wooden images of the Siwang. And both entrances to the Myeongbu-jeon Hall are a guarded by two, large Geumgang-yeoksa (Vajra Warriors).

      Between the Daeung-jeon Hall and the Myeongbu-jeon Hall, and still to the right of the main hall, you’ll find a smaller Sanshin-gak Hall. This shaman shrine hall is solely dedicated to Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit). The modern painting dedicated to Sanshin is joined in the painting by a rather inquisitive-looking tiger and a pair of dongja (attendants) carrying a basket of fruit that includes a peach and pomegranate.

      To the left of the Daeung-jeon Hall, on the other hand, is the Yeongsan-jeon Hall, which is the other historic shrine hall at Unheungsa Temple. Like the Daeung-jeon Hall, the Yeongsan-jeon Hall dates back to 1731. Like all the shrine halls at the temple, the exterior walls to the Yeongsan-jeon Hall are adorned in simple dancheong colours. Stepping inside the Yeongsan-jeon Hall, you’ll find a triad of statues resting on the main altar. In the centre is a statue of Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). This central image is joined on either side by Yeondeung-bul (The Past Buddha) and Mireuk-bul (The Future Buddha). This main altar triad is joined on both sides (eight on each side) of the sixteen Nahan (The Historical Disciples of the Buddha). While they appear simple in design, they are still quite masterfully sculpted.

      How To Get There

      From the Samcheonpo Intercity Bus Terminal, you’ll need to catch Bus #30 to get to Unheungsa Temple. This bus goes directly to the temple. This bus says “Budu (부두) – Unheungsa (운흥사)” on it. There is also the same bus numbered Bus #30 that reads “부두-홀곡-운흥사” on it. This bus also goes to Unheungsa Temple, but it takes about ten minutes more. In total, the direct bus, Bus #30, takes about thirty minutes, or 16 stops, to get to Unheungsa Temple, while the other bus takes about 40 minutes.

      Overall Rating: 7/10

      While smaller in size, and with only a handful of shrine halls, Unheungsa Temple still has more than enough for visitors to enjoy including the five provincial treasures and the pair of Korean Treasures. The interior of the Daeung-jeon Hall is filled with Buddhist artistic excellence including the main altar triad, the Gamno-do, and the shaman murals. Additionally, the statues inside both the Yeongsan-jeon Hall and the Myeongbu-jeon Hall are stunning as well. Unheungsa Temple has undergone a fair amount of reconstruction over the past decade, and it has only helped elevate the temple that much higher in its overall beauty and overall aesthetic.
