We will cover things such as what results you can expect, an overview of the language, and a 7-day structured study plan you can use right away.

Quick Summary

Before we head on to the comprehensive guide below, here’s a summary of the important points that you will be learning:

  • Hangul was created by King Sejong in the 15th century. It is the foundation of Korean language learning, covering grammar, pronunciation, and basic vocabulary.
  • The 7-day study plan will help you quickly grasp the Korean alphabet, essential phrases, grammar, vocabulary, and numbers. This means you can have basic conversations and an understanding of K-pop and K-dramas.
  • Incorporating Korean dramas, music, and variety shows into study routines enhances language skills and cultural understanding.
  • Within 7 days, you can expect to start basic conversations, read signs, enjoy K-pop, and follow K-dramas. This sets the groundwork for future fluency in Korean, which requires around 2400 hours of study.
7-Day Study Plan Expectations

Here are some things you can expect to learn in 7 days.

  • Have basic conversations in Korean
  • Read signs and social media posts in Hangeul
  • Understand parts of K-pop lyrics
  • Connect with K-dramas on a deeper level

Becoming fluent in Korean takes about 2400 hours. It takes about 90 days to be able to have a 3-minute conversation in Korean.

Understanding the Basics of the Korean Language

Before you head on to the steps you need to take if you want to learn Korean fast, knowing the basics will always come first. The Korean language features a unique alphabet, simple grammar structure, unique pronunciation, and a practical vocabulary. Here is a quick overview to start:

Hangul (The Korean Alphabet)

Hangeul, a scientific design and easy language to learn, was created by King Sejong in the 15th century. Hangeul consists of 24 letters in total, with 14 consonants and 10 vowels. These letters are grouped into syllable blocks.

Basic Korean Grammar
  • Subject-Object-Verb (SOV): Korean sentences typically end with verbs. This is the first grammatical difference you notice when you first learn Korean because it is different from the SVO order in English.
  • Particles: One of the important things to understand in Korean sentence structure is particles. Particles attached to nouns represent their roles in sentences (topics, objects, locations, etc.).
  • Honorifics: The Korean words used vary depending on the relationship between speakers. Honorifics are used to show respect, and verb ends change accordingly.

Korean Pronunciation

Some sounds are native to Korean and require some practice. For example, distinguishing between tense, aspirated, and plain sounds.

Accents can affect sentence meaning. Therefore, the practice of listening carefully and imitating native Korean speakers is necessary.

Essential Korean Vocabulary
  • Greetings: Start with greetings like “안녕하세요” (annyeonghaseyo – Hello), “감사합니다” (gamsahamnida – Thank you), and “죄송합니다” (joesonghamnida – Sorry).
  • Numbers: Learn the two numbering systems in the Korean language (Native Korean and Sino-Korean) and their different usage.
  • Daily Expressions: Learn phrases about activities in daily life, directions, food orders, and expressing what you like and dislike.

How to implement Multimedia to your learning

Make it a daily routine by dedicating specific times of the day to different types of media. For example, while you commute, you can listen to Korean music. In the evening you can watch an episode of a Korean drama. Before bed, spend time using language apps for 30 minutes.

Reflect and practice afterward by writing down new vocabulary or phrases and trying to use them in sentences. Note whether you learned new cultural aspects and how they relate to language use.

Practical Language Use in Everyday Situations

You can learn language by using it in situations, not just studying. Here are some common scenarios that you can practice using Korean language:

Greetings and Basic Expressions:

When you meet someone, say 안녕하세요 (annyeonghaseyo | Hello). If it’s your first time meeting the person, say 만나서 반갑습니다 (mannaseo bangapseumnida | Nice to meet you).

It can also be very useful to learn to introduce yourself, such as 제 이름은 ___입니다. (je ireumeun ___imnida | My name is [name]), 저는 ___ 사람입니다. ( jeoneun ___ saramimnida | I’m from [country]).

Use 감사합니다 (gamsahamnida | Thank you) to thank someone.

Use 건배! (geonbae | Cheers!) when you are having some drinks with your Korean friends or Korean learners.

For shopping, 얼마예요? (eolmayeyo | How much is it?), 영수증 주세요 (yeongsujeung juseyo | Please give me a receipt) are practical.

When your phone is ringing, answer your call by saying “여보세요” (yeoboseyo | Hello).

Use 네 (ne | yes) and 아니요 (aniyo | no) or 알겠어요 (algesseoyo | I understand) and 모르겠어요 (moreugesseoyo | I don’t know/I’m not sure) in your conversation.

Daily Activities and Navigation:

When you are lost, use 저기요 (jeogiyo | Excuse me) to get someone’s attention or 도와주세요 (dowajuseyo | Please help me) for emergencies.

Learning to ask for directions and the location of places, for example, 화장실은 어디에 있어요? (hwajangsireun eodie isseoyo | Where is the bathroom?) can be incredibly helpful.

Challenges and Tips for Rapid Learning

Fast learning comes with a series of challenges, especially regarding language acquisition. These obstacles can sometimes slow the progression or lead to frustration. However, understanding and navigating these challenges can make the learning process smoother and more effective.

Here are some common obstacles:

  • Information overload
    When you try to learn too much in a short time, it can overwhelm your brain. This makes maintaining new information difficult.
  • Burnout
    Learning without enough breaks can cause us to be mentally exhausted and have poor motivation and efficiency.
  • PlateauAfter a certain time, there may be a time when progression slows down, causing frustration, which seems to lead to decreased motivation.
  • Language SpecificsEach language has its problems. For example, pronunciation, certain grammar rules, and cultural nuances can be difficult for some people when learning.

How can you overcome the difficulties? Here are some tips:

  • Break down learning goals into manageable chunks to maintain focus and motivation.
  • Build a strong Foundation. This makes it easier to understand more complex concepts later on.
  • Have regular breaks. To avoid burnout and improve retention, schedule many short, frequent breaks.
  • Accept plateaus. Plateaus are a normal part of the learning process. Take this time to review and stabilize what you’ve learned.
  • Engage with the language in real life. Practice speaking Korean, listening, reading, and writing to make your learning more relevant.
  • Get regular feedback from native speakers or language partners. This can correct mistakes early and improve your language skills quickly.
  • Use different resources. By doing this, you can keep the learning experience interesting while making it cover all aspects of the language.
  • Stay positive towards your learning, and be patient with yourself. Often, the progress of learning a language is non-linear.

Chasing the Frozen Sunrise: A Photographer’s Journey at Jujeon Port

Thu, 2024-02-22 21:30

In the wee hours of a biting winter morning, when most souls slumber in the comfort of warmth, there exists a breed of adventurers stirred by a calling of creativity. This is the tale of one such dawn, where the frigid embrace of the sea beckoned, and a photographer answered.

Could I have lingered under the covers, succumbing to the lure of a few more hours’ rest? Certainly. Could I have waited for a milder morn to embark on my quest? Perhaps. But destiny whispered otherwise. It insisted that today, at Jujeon Port, beneath the canvas of a unique sunrise, a story awaited its chronicler.

Emerging from the coziness of my bed, doubts swirled like steam from my morning brew. Some photographers chase the warmth of a studio and the beauty of a scantily-clad model, but I? I choose the rugged allure of landscapes, the untamed majesty of winter waves crashing against the Jujeon shores.

Enchantment resides in the deep red pagoda-shaped lighthouse, and the stoic rocks that punctuate the coastline, rendering Jujeon a stage for nature’s raw drama. Yet, beyond its aesthetic allure, lies a practicality—it’s an accessible haven for those racing against time to capture the unfolding spectacle of dawn.

As the horizon blushed with hues of sunrise, it wasn’t the sky’s palette that stole the show, but the tempestuous sea, its waves a symphony of unrestrained fury against the rocky bastions.

Unexpectedly, ice danced upon the landscape, a rarity even in Ulsan’s winter grasp. The saline sheen on rocks and rails bespoke a wintry tale seldom told. Undeterred, I pressed forward, tripod in hand, navigating the treacherous ground with the grace of a tightrope walker.

With each click of the shutter, I surrendered to the intoxicating beauty. Even as icy waters threatened, I stood steadfast, my camera cocooned within my parka, a guardian against the elements. Though drenched and chilled to the bone, my spirit remained unyielding—a testament to the resilience forged in moments of elemental communion.

As I shed my soaked layers, memories of another wilderness encounter flooded my mind—a bond shared with my father amidst the unforgiving terrain of northern Manitoba. His words, uttered in moments of triumph and adversity alike, echoed in my solitude.

Yet, in the silence that followed, a longing stirred—a wish to share this conquest with a soul no longer earthbound. The absence of a tangible connection to the heavens lent a poignant hue to the moment, tempered only by the assurance of paternal vigilance from realms beyond.

Jujeon Port, nestled near Nammock in Ulsan, offers sanctuary to summer revelers and glampers alike. Amidst its rugged charm, it beckons the intrepid, the oddities who dare to embrace the winter’s icy embrace in pursuit of frozen beauty.

Yeongsanjeongsa Temple – 영산정사 (Miryang, Gyeongsangnam-do)

Wed, 2024-02-21 23:22
The Seven-Story Pagoda at Yeongsanjeongsa Temple in Miryang, Gyeongsangnam-do. Temple History

Yeongsanjeongsa Temple, which is a reference to Vulture Peak, where the Buddha gave sermons like the Heart and Lotus Sutras, is located in western Miryang, Gyeongsangnam-do. The temple is located in the southern foothills of Mt. Yeongchwisan (738.8 m). Yeongsanjeongsa Temple was first built in 1997 on the former temple grounds of Samjeoksa Temple. Samjeoksa Temple was used as a training centre for the Righteous Army that fought against the invading Japanese during the Imjin War (1592-98) in 1592. Yeongsanjeongsa Temple was built to pray for peace in Korea. The temple is also home to a massive, golden Reclining Buddha statue that’s 120 metres in length and 21 metres in height. In 2020, all the construction at the temple was completed.

Being a modern temple, Yeongsanjeongsa Temple isn’t home to any Korean Treasures or National Treasures. However, it is home to Gyeongsangnam-do Tangible Cultural Property #387, which is the “Miryang Yeongsanjeongsa Stone Buddha Statue.”

Temple Layout

As you first make your way towards Yeongsanjeongsa Temple, you’ll first be greeted by a rather non-descript Iljumun Gate. After passing through this entry gate, you’ll be welcomed by a pair of modern stone guardian posts. Finally, you’ll arrive at the rather spacious temple courtyard. To your immediate left is a large building that acts as the monks’ dorms, the kitchen, and administrative office. And to the right of this modern structure is a beautiful stone statue dedicated to Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion). This statue is surrounded by a shallow pool of water and two dongja (attendants) in its midst.

Next to this statue is the amazing seven-story pagoda. This pagoda also acts as the temple museum. In total, some 2,000 Buddhist artifacts such as statues, paintings, and sari (crystallized remains) are all housed inside this museum. The first floor of the structure houses numerous large statues. On the second floor of the pagoda, there are numerous paintings. The third floor houses a world record setting amount of sari (crystallized remains) of monks. The fourth floor has numerous smaller sized Buddhist statues. And finally, on the fifth floor, you can look out towards the enormous, golden Reclining Buddha statue that’s 120 metres in length and 21 metres in height on the neighbouring hillside. Additionally, the “Miryang Yeongsanjeongsa Stone Buddha Statue” is housed inside this seven-story structure. It’s believed that this protected property dates back to the 7th century based on its style. It appears to be an image of Yaksayeorae-bul (The Medicine Buddha) based on the medicinal jar it holds in its left hand. So when you visit the temple pagoda/museum, make sure you keep an eye out for this historic statue.

To the right of the seven-story pagoda is the Myeongbu-jeon Hall. The exterior walls to this shrine hall are simplistically painted with murals of the Siwang (The Ten Kings of the Underworld). Stepping inside the Myeongbu-jeon Hall, and seated on a long main altar are seven statues of Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife). All seven statues are backed by seven amazing murals of the Bodhisattva of the Afterlife. These paintings depict various scenes from the afterlife at their bases. On the far left is a wall of gold to commemorate the dead, while to the right is a stunning, modern Gamno-do (Sweet Dew Mural).

Next to the Myeongbu-jeon Hall is the Daejeokgwang-jeon Hall. But before entering the main hall, you’ll notice an artificial pond that houses what looks to be a moon rock carving of various Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. And out in front of the main hall are a pair of nine-story stone pagodas. As for the Daejeokgwang-jeon Hall, you’ll find murals of the Palsang-do (The Eight Scenes from the Buddha’s Life Murals). Stepping inside the Daejeokgwang-jeon Hall, you’ll find five Buddhas on the main altar, and they are backed by highly original, and absolutely beautiful, murals of various Buddhas. Resting in the centre of the five is an image dedicated to Birojana-bul (The Buddha of Cosmic Energy). This central image is joined on either side by images of Mireuk-bul (The Future Buddha) and Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). The far right side, and next to Seokgamoni-bul, is a statue and painting dedicated to Yaksayeorae-bul (The Medicine Buddha, and the Buddha of the Eastern Paradise). And to the far left, and next to Mireuk-bul, you’ll find a statue and painting dedicated to Amita-bul (The Buddha of the Western Paradise). The spacious main hall is new, and it also houses a painting dedicated to Chilseong (The Seven Stars) and a Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural).

As a bit of a sidenote, the temple is just a couple kilometres away from the birthplace of Samyeong-daesa (1544-1610), the warrior monk. So if you’re out in this area, it’s definitely worth your time to pay your respects and visit the home of one of Korea’s most famous Buddhist monks.

The birthplace of Samyeong-daesa (1544-1610). How To Get There

From the Miryang Intercity Bus Terminal, you’ll need to catch the Seogeojyeong Bus. The bus ride will take you about 40 minutes, and you’ll need to get off at the Seogeojyeong stop. From this stop, you’ll need to walk 10 minutes to get to the temple. You can use the seven-story pagoda at Yeongsanjeongsa Temple as your guide.

Overall Rating: 7.5/10

There are quite a few highlights at Yeongsanjeongsa Temple starting with the seven-story pagoda/museum and the massive Reclining Buddha. In addition to these rather obvious highlights, you can also enjoy all the artwork inside the two major shrine halls: the Myeongbu-jeon Hall and the Daejeokgwang-jeon Hall. Both the statues and paintings are stunning. Additionally, the modern Gamno-do (Sweet Dew Mural) and the outdoor statue dedicated to Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion) are exquisite, as well. While newer in age, Yeongsanjeongsa Temple is a must-see in Miryang.

The large outdoor statue dedicated to Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion). The seven-story pagoda/museum at Yeongsanjeongsa Temple. A Reclining Buddha and Contemplative Mireuk-bul (The Future Buddha) statues inside the seven-story pagoda/museum. A multi-headed and armed image of Gwanseeum-bosal. A blue copper thousand Buddhas statue. A painting of Samyeong-daesa (1544-1610) inside the seven-story pagoda/museum. A shamanic mural inside the pagoda/museum. And the “Miryang Yeongsanjeongsa Stone Buddha Statue” inside the pagoda/museum, as well. (Picture courtesy of the CHA). The view from the seven-story pagoda towards the main hall.

Also housed inside the Myeongbu-jeon Hall is this beautiful, modern Gamno-do (Sweet Dew Mural). The moon rock sculpture with images of the Buddha on it that’s located between the Myeongbu-jeon Hall and the Daejeokgwang-jeon Hall. One of the Palsang-do (Eight Scenes from the Buddha’s Life Murals) that adorns the Daejeokgwang-jeon Hall. A look inside the main hall. The honeycomb-like painting and statue dedicated to Amita-bul (The Buddha of the Western Paradise). The Chilseong (Seven Stars) mural inside the Daejeokgwang-jeon Hall.

Spreadsheet work

Sun, 2024-02-18 02:46
Classified Ad Type: Location: Neighborhood: Haeundae/Geumsa


Currently I use the Hancell 2010 spreadsheet (English version).

For example, I do my accounts for a rental property using a spreadsheet: P&L, Cashflow, Balance Sheet.

I am also interested in the Dow and various  Investment Funds. I do simple statistics on the data that I collect.

(for example, percentage movements and average months held for an investment). 

I am looking for simple work from home using the Hancell spreadsheet and some simple analysis.

My level in Korean is beginner level.

I have an F6 visa from an English speaking country.

I am looking for interesting part time work, maybe 5 hours a week.
