GM shows no plan for EV production in Korea

Koreabridge - Sat, 2021-11-20 12:44

 A key GM official threw a wet blanket on the Korean auto industry that has hoped GM may manufacture electric vehicles in its two plants in Korea. Steve Kiefer, GM International President, said in a press conference on Nov 12 that GM Korea will launch 10 new EV models in Korea by 2025, but none will be made locally. Mr.Kiefer added GM Korea will launch a new crossover model in 2023 at its Changwon plant. The crossover model will be a key product  for GM Korea to sell locally as well as export to overseas, following the footsteps of Trailblazer SUVs that have been exported  over 100,000 units since its launch in 2020 at Bupyeong plant.  When closing its Gunsan plant in 2019, GM Korea made a commitment to the Korean government to invest 900 billion won($7.5B) in its Changwon plant for the next four years. 

GM models are respected by Korean, evidenced by the word "Gemucee"(제무시) coined during the Korean War. Wowed at the performance of GMC military trucks used in the mountainous Korean terrain, Koreans called anything that is about power, strength, durability, or reliability as Gemucee.  For example, "Mike Tyson is a real Gemucee to beat his opponents with 19 straight K.O.s." Or, "You must be a Gemucee to have 11 kids!"  A few of these Gemucee trucks are still active in Korea over 70 years after the Korean War. Korean consumers respect GM products.  Korea has a strong auto supplier base including EV battery companies like LG Chemical, so many hope GM CEO Mary Barra sends Mr.Santa Claus instead  for the next press interview in Seoul.

Tasty PORK BELLY & BOSTON BUTT Korean BBQ | Mokgumeong

Koreabridge - Fri, 2021-11-19 23:00

Burger n' Kimchi eat delicious PORK BELLY & BOSTON BUTT at Mokgumeong (목구멍) in Hadan. It was some tasty KOREAN BBQ for sure! There's nothing better than some simple, but well cooked pork and a variety of Korean Side Dishes!

Kimchi and I went with both pork belly & Boston butt / neck meat. You can also get Galbi (ribs) if you like, but we stuck with only pork. For those energy packed carbs, I ordered the cold noodles (Naengmyeon) and Kimchi got some sauced noodles (Bibimmyeon). Oh yeah and a bottle of Terra for the Terra Model!

We left this place full and with meat sweats! It was busy, but we got a seat no problem on a weekday. This is a chain restaurant, so you can find Mokgumeong BBQ Restaurants everywhere! We definitely recommend you give the Hadan location a try. They were friendly and cooked our meat perfectly.

If you're looking to head to Mokgumeong for some MEAT, you can easily get there from Hadan Station Exit 11. It's only a short 1 or 2 minute walk from there! For your convenience, linked the location below:

Speaking ONLY KOREAN with my bilingual son | Korean ice cream stores with no staff

Koreabridge - Thu, 2021-11-18 14:33

My son is bilingual, and also happens to like ice cream (who doesn't). So I took him to an ice cream store that's open all day without any staff members, since it would be easy to film there, and let him pick out a few of his favorite flavors. Then we brought them back to our apartment and tried each of them. The whole time we're speaking only in Korean.

Munsuam Hermitage – 문수암 (Goseong, Gyeongsangnam-do)

Koreabridge - Wed, 2021-11-17 23:54
The Amazing View from Munsuam Hermitage in Goseong, Gyeongsangnam-do. Hermitage History

Munsuam Hermitage is located in western Goseong, Gyeongsangnam-do. The hermitage is named after Munsu-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Wisdom). Munsuam Hermitage was first established in 688 A.D., when the famed monk Uisang-daesa (625 – 702 A.D.) built it. Uisang-daesa was led to the top of Mt. Muesan (545.6 m) by Munsu-bosal and Bohyeon-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Power). The two Bodhisattvas appeared as beggars to Uisang-daesa. Uisang-daesa had a dream in which a Buddhist devotee foretold the coming of these two Bodhisattvas. Outside of the hermitage’s foundation, very little is known about it through the centuries. The hermitage shrine halls are modern creations, and the stupa (budo) that houses the sari (crystallized remains) of the monk Cheongdam was placed on the hermitage grounds in 1973.

Munsuam Hermitage has one of the most scenic views in all of Korea. The hermitage faces towards the south and the dozens of tiny islands that dot the South Sea. And between the hermitage and the sea are rolling waves of twisted red pines along the neighbouring ridgelines. Crowning the neighbouring mountain top to the south, and a little lesser in elevation, is Bohyeonsa Temple, which is named after the Bodhisattva that also assisted Uisang-daesa to the top of the mountain. So with the South Sea, the rolling ridgelines, the neighbouring Bohyeonsa Temple, the views from Munsuam Hermitage are simply breath-taking.

Hermitage Layout

You first approach Munsuam Hermitage up a zig-zagging road that winds its way up the side of the sloping mountain. When you finally do arrive at the hermitage grounds, you’ll notice that most of the shrine halls are precariously placed on the face of the mountain. The second thing you’ll probably notice is the amazing view. And rather remarkably, all of this can be seen just from the hermitage parking lot.

Passing by a cute collection of wood carvings, you’ll first encounter the Cheonbul-jeon Hall at Munsuam Hermitage to your left. Inside the Cheonbul-jeon Hall are wall-to-wall statues of the Buddha. And resting under the main altar’s red canopy (datjib) is a triad centred by Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). This statue is joined on the main altar by Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife) and Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisatva of Compassion). Completing the artistic interior of the Cheonbul-jeon Hall are a collection of Nahan (The Historical Disciples of the Buddha) paintings on the ceiling of the shrine hall.

As you make your way from the lower courtyard that houses the Cheonbul-jeon Hall, towards the upper courtyard, you’ll pass by a storage building and an observation deck. It’s from this observation deck, which is also where the stupa (budo) that houses the partial remains of Cheongdam, that you’ll get the best view of the South Sea off in the distance. On the observation deck, you’ll also find a tortoise-based stele (biseok) and a stone statue dedicated to Seokgamoni-bul.

Further up the pathway, and now standing in the upper courtyard at Munsuam Hermitage, you’ll find the main hall. The exterior walls to this hall are adorned with beautiful Shimu-do (Ox-Herding Murals). As for the interior, and sitting all alone on the main altar, is an image of Gwanseeum-bosal. To the left of the main altar is a shrine with a standing statue dedicated to Jijang-bosal. And on the far left wall is a uniquely painted Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural). And to the right of the main altar is a statue of a youthful Munsu-bosal riding a blue lion. This statue is backed by a panel of glass that looks out onto a neighbouring mountain crevice, which is where a statue of Munsu-boal miraculously appeared to Uisang-daesa. And on the far right wall is a memorial shrine for the dead.

To the right of the main hall at Munsuam Hermitage is another observation deck that looks out more towards the rolling ridgelines of the neighbouring mountains. And to the left of the main hall are the monks’ dorms. And it’s from out in front of this building that you get some more spectacular views of the sea and the tiny islands off in the distance.

The final shrine hall that visitors can explore at Munsuam Hermitage is the Dokseong-gak Hall. This shaman shrine hall is situated up a treacherous mountain pathway. In fact, a portion of the mountain’s rocky face has been cut away to allow visitors access to this rather hard to reach shrine hall. Once you do finally arrive at the shaman shrine hall crowning the hermitage grounds, you’ll be greeted by a solitary image of Dokseong (The Lonely Saint) inside the Dokseong-gak Hall.

How To Get There

From Goseong, you’ll need to take a taxi to get to Munsuam Hermitage, as there are no buses that go directly to the hermitage. The taxi ride will be around 13,000 won from the Goseong Intercity Bus Terminal. And the ride should take about twenty-five minutes (one way). Just make sure you hang onto your taxi, because it’s a long walk back to the terminal from Munsuam Hermitage.

Overall Rating: 8.5/10

Without a doubt, Munsuam Hermitage is one of the most beautifully located Buddhist sites in Korea right up there with Boriam Hermitage in Namhae, Gyeongsangnam-do and Hyangiram Hermitage in Yeosu, Jeollanam-do. Adding to the hermitage’s scenic location is the crowning Dokseong-gak Hall and the main hall at Munsuam Hermitage. While lesser visited, Munsuam Hermitage is an absolute must see!

The amazing view from Munsuam Hermitage. And a look towards the neighbouring Bohyeonsa Temple. The Cheonbul-jeon Hall at Munsuam Hermitage. The colourful interior of the Cheonbul-jeon Hall. The statue of Seokgamoni-bul and the stupa dedicated to Cheongdam on the observation deck at Munsuam Hermitage. The view from the observation deck. And another amazing angle towards Bohyeonsa Temple off in the distance. A closer look. The view from the main hall. A look inside the main hall at Munsuam Hermitage. The statue of Munsu-bosal inside the main hall. The uniquely designed Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural). The pathway leading up to the Dokseong-gak Hall. And the statue of Dokseong (The Lonely Saint) inside the Dokseong-gak Hall. —

School in Korean – Words and phrases related to education

Koreabridge - Tue, 2021-11-16 10:27

Today we will teach you how to say school in Korean. You will also learn a variety of words and phrases related to all things school.

Being a student and attending school can be enjoyable as it’s where you can meet a lot of friends. If you’re currently studying in South Korea, these terms might come in handy.

Sit down comfortably with your notes open, and let’s get to studying!

How to say “school” in Korean

You can say “school” in Korean as 학교 (hakgyo). For each different level of schooling, from elementary school to university, the word 학교 is attached.

This lesson will primarily focus on the words related to school in Korean. However, there will be a separate article focusing more on schools in South Korea.

Vocabulary for school in Korean

Here is some common vocabulary related to school in Korean.

Words for schools in South Korea

There are different levels of education in South Korea. Here are some of them.

KoreanEnglish 초등학교 (chodeunghakgyo)elementary school 중학교 (junghakgyo) middle school 고등학교 (godeunghakgyo)high school 대학교 (daehakgyo)university 대학원 (daehagwon)graduate school 학원 (hagwon)cram school, private academy 유치원 (yuchiwon)kindergarten 전문대 (jeonmundae)college 어학원 (eohagwon)language school 어학당 (eohakdang)language school 기숙 학교 (gisuk hakgyo)boarding school Words for people related to school in Korean

Here are some words for roles that people have related to school.

KoreanEnglish 교수 (gyosu)professor 교사 (gyosa)school teacher 선생님 (seonsaengnim)teacher 학생 (haksaeng)student 중학생 (junghaksaeng) middle school students 고등학생 (godeunghaksaeng) high school students 초등학교 선생님 or 초등학교 교사 (chodeunghakgyo seonsaengnim or chodeunghakgyo gyosa) primary school teacher 반 친구들 (ban chingudeul) classmates Words for subjects in Korean

Different subjects are taught at school. Here are some of them in Korean.

KoreanEnglish 과목 (gwamok)subject 수학 (suhak)mathematics 과학 (gwahak)science Verbs related to school in Korean

Below are some action words related to school in Korean.

KoreanEnglish 가르치다 (gareuchida) to teach 배우다 (baeuda)to learn 연습하다 (yeonseupada)to practice 공부하다 (gongbuhada)to study 교육하다 (gyoyukada)to educate Other words related to school in Korean

We’ve also listed down additional essential vocabulary related to school in Korean.

KoreanEnglish 학부 (hakbu) department 수업 (sueop)class 시험 (siheom)exam 강당 (gangdang) auditorium, assembly hall 학교식당 (hakgyosikdang)school cafeteria 교실 (gyosil)classroom 학년 (hangnyeon)grade 교육 (gyoyuk)education 도서관 (doseogwan) library 학기 (hakgi)semester

Elementary school in Korean

Elementary school in Korean is called 초등학교 (chodeunghakgyo). The elementary school falls under primary education.

Middle school in Korean

Falling under secondary education, middle school in Korean is called 중학교 (junghakgyo). Middle school students are called 중학생 (junghaksaeng) in Korean.

High school in Korean

After middle school, the high school level comes next. The word for high school in Korean is 고등학교 (godeunghakgyo). A high school student is called 고등학생 (godeunghaksaeng) in Korean.

Graduate school in Korean

The word for graduate school in Korean is 대학원 (daehagwon).

Graduation in Korean

The word for graduation in Korean is 졸업 (joreop), and the verb “to graduate” is 졸업하다 (joreopada). The word for graduation ceremony is 졸업식 (joreopsik). The word for ceremony is 식 (sik).

University in Korean

The word for university in Korean is 대학교 (daehakgyo). Sometimes, when spoken of a specific university, for example, 한양대학교 (hanyangdaehakgyo), it may get shortened as 대 (dae). In other words, instead of saying the full 한양대학교, you may just say 한양대 (hanyangdae). Like this:

한양대에서 졸업했어요.

(hanyangdaeeseo joreopaesseoyo.)

I graduated from Hanyang University.

College in Korean

The word for college in Korean is 전문대 (jeonmundae). However, frequently the term 대학교 (daehakgyo) is used interchangeably or is shortened as 대학 (daehak). Typically the word 전문대 is used specifically for colleges with programs lasting 2-3 years, as opposed to a university’s 4-year degrees.

Teacher in Korean

There are two words for “teacher” in the Korean language. The first one is 교사 (gyosa) which translates to school teacher, and the other one is 선생님 (seonsaengnim) which literally means teacher. The difference between the two is that 선생님 (seonsaengnim) is an honorific, while 교사 (gyosa) isn’t.

In addressing your teachers directly, you should say 선생님 (seonsaengnim), not 교사 (gyosa).

For example, “Hello, teacher!” in Korean is 선생님, 안녕하세요! (seonsaengnim, annyeonghaseyo!) and not 교사, 안녕하세요! (gyosa, annyeonghaseyo!).

Student in Korean

When there’s a teacher, there’s also a student. And Korean students are generally called 학생 (haksaeng). As you learn Korean and improve your language skills, you can also consider yourself as 학생 (haksaeng).

Book in Korean

The word for book in Korean is 책 (chaek). However, for school book specifically, the words typically used are 교과서 (gyogwaseo) and 학교 도서 (hakgyo doseo).

Study in Korean

There are a few words for how to say study in Korean. Perhaps the most common one is 공부 (gongbu). You can also use it as the verb “to study” by attaching 하다 (hada) to the verb, like this 공부하다 (gongbuhada). Sometimes the word 학습 (hakseup) is also used. More specifically, this noun means “learning.”

Pencil in Korean

The word for pencil in Korean is 연필 (yeonpil). And the word for “pen” in Korean is 펜.

Go to School in Korean

Lastly, you will probably want to know how to say go to school in Korean. The phrase for this is 학교에 다니다 (hakgyoe danida). The word 학교 means “school,” and the verb 다니다 means “to go” and “to attend.” Based on the formality, you can drop 다 and add -녀(요) to use the verb in action.

The 에 attached to 학교 is an integral Korean particle, noting location or time. If you are still unfamiliar with this particle or Korean particles in general, we kindly ask you to refer to our particle guide.

Phrases related to school in Korean

Now that we’ve learned some Korean words related to school in Korean, let’s level it up to the Korean phrases below.

좋은 대학교에 입학하게 되기 위해서 열심히 공부해요. (joeun daehakgyoe ipakage doegi wihaeseo yeolsimhi gongbuhaeyo.)

I study hard because I want to get into a good university.

제가 제일 좋은 수업은 영어에요. (jega jeil joeun sueobeun yeongeoeyo. )

My favorite school subject is English.

지금 한국어학원을 다니고 있어요. (jigeum hangugeohagwoneul danigo isseoyo.)

I am currently attending Korean language school.

일주일에 학원에서 3개 수업을 들어요. (iljuire hagwoneseo 3gae sueobeul deureoyo.)

I take three classes a week in a private academy.

And now you should be ready to talk about school in Korean! Do you have plans to attend school in South Korea, or have you already attended school in Korea? How else can you make today’s material useful to you? Let us know in the comments below!
