Similar words in Korean & Chinese

Even though Korean and Chinese aren’t related, there was a lot of influence on Korean vocabulary by Chinese. So here are some words that I found which are similar on both of these languages

运动 (yùndòng) 운동 - to exercise
皮肤 (pífū) 피부 - skin
市场 (shìchǎng) 시장 - market
时间 (shíjiān) 시간 - time
银行 (yínháng) 은행 - bank
车 (chē)  - vehicle (car)
图书馆 (túshūguǎn) 도서관 - library
韩国 (hánguó) 한국 - South Korea
中国 (zhōngguó) 중국 - China
日本 (rìběn) 일본 - Japan
外国 (wàiguó) 외국 - foreign country
王 (wáng)  - king
年(nián)  - year
油画 (yóuhuà) 유화 - oil painting
北 (běi)  - north
南 (nán)  - south
东 (dōng) - east
西 (xī)  - west
文化 (wénhuà) 문화 - culture

These are obviously not all, just the words I stumbled upon while learning, so feel free to add more! I didn’t include Sino-Korean numbers here since the fact that they sound similar is kind of obvious.

anonymous asked:

can i request Zen headcanons situation during the Echo Girl problem, he finds out that MC is super rich like richer than Jumin Han and Echo Girl? she's never mentioned in media because her father is protective of her, so he crushes any media that talks about her. (Seven probably was hinting about her wealth through out the chatting often comparing her to Jumin) thanks!

Oh my gosh this is such a fun idea! I love writing about Zen since he’s so romantic and funny so I loved writing this one! I hope that you like it!! :D

All you wanted was to do something nice for Zen, but the day had something else in store. Zen had been cast as the main lead in a new musical with Echo Girl as his co-star. But with the scandal about her saying that Zen assaulted her and his hurt leg, production had been tricky.

You noticed that Zen had been stressing out lately so you decided to meet with him at a small cafe to help him relax. Once Zen had got there, he gave you a concerned look saying “Babe you have to be more careful when you’re by yourself. I can only be your knight when I’m with you, you shouldn’t be waiting around here alone.”

You smiled at Zen saying “Don’t worry, I’m fine! There’s lots of people around here anyway so nothing bad would happen. Now let’s get some drinks and help you relax!”

Once the two of you ordered your drinks, you and Zen chatted casually. Your time together was going great until you saw Echo Girl approach you.

She rolled her eyes saying “So this is the girl that you’d rather be with then me? What’s wrong with you Zen, she’s so ugly and she looks like some poor girl you found on the street! Do you even know what money looks like sweetie?”

Before Zen could say or do anything, you looked right into Echo Girl’s eyes and said “Well of course looks are viewed objectively but I can assure you one thing, I’m very, very far from being poor. My family owns the largest car corporation in South Korea so unless you want me to hire some publicists and hackers to ruin your career, I suggest you leave.”

Both Echo Girl and Zen were shocked by what you said. But Echo Girl obviously got the message and with a nervous look, she ran out of the cafe.

You giggled and stirred your drink but Zen grabbed your hand saying “Whoa MC were you being serious? Are you seriously that rich?”

You smiled shyly saying “Yeah I am. My father keeps me away from the media and he doesn’t really like me leaving his sight since he says people only like me because of my family’s wealth. But I’m so happy that I did, I met you and our time together has been some of the happiest times in my life!”

Zen still looked shocked but smiled saying “You should have told me babe! There’s no way that I would judge you or treat you any differently because of your family’s money.”

You smiled at him saying “And that’s one of the many reasons why I love you Zen! But when I told my father that you were apart of the RFA, he got really excited since he’s seen some of your musicals and he thinks that you’re a great actor.”

Zen gave you one of his perfect smiles and dramatically said “Well of course he loves my acting, since I am the greatest actor to ever exists.” You rolled your eyes at his narcissism but laughed regardless.

“But quick question MC… Just how rich is your family?” Zen asked you curiously. You thought for a minute and then said “Well, we’re about five times wealthier then Jumin if that helps answer your question.”

Zen’s jaw dropped and with wide eyes exclaimed “Are you serious?! You’re that rich and I didn’t know?!”

You shrugged your shoulders saying “Well yeah we are. And don’t you pay attention? Remember on the messenger when Seven asked Jumin to buy him a car and when he said no, Seven asked me? Or when he asked if I had met Jumin at any fancy dinner parties before I joined the RFA? Or when Seven asked if I had any people from the media following me like Jumin sometimes does? And when Seven asked for me to give him a cruise for his vacation?”

Zen shook his head saying “But it’s Seven we’re talking about here. I just assumed he was being an idiot when he said all of that and brushed him off! Wow, I can’t believe that you’re that rich. I thought that rich people were all like that stupid trust fund kid but you’re so different. You’re amazing and humble even though you have so much money.”

“Well I’m glad that you think so! I don’t want anything to be different between us even if I’m wealthy. So let’s just stay exactly how we are!” You said excitedly to Zen.

He smiled and leaned in to give you a small kiss. The two of you left the cafe and Zen put his arm around your waist as both of you walked back to his apartment saying “Don’t worry babe, I’ll protect you from those idiot reporters. I don’t want you to have to be afraid anymore okay? You’re shining knight Zen is here to always protect you!”

You giggled and wrapped your arms around Zen, giving him a kiss to his cheek and said “Thank you Zen, I love you so much, more then I could ever describe.”

Zen smiled at you and held you closer saying “I love you too MC. Let’s have a happy life together no matter if crazy co-stars or annoying reporters get in our way, I want us to be together for ever and always.”

Timed Prompt (20 min)

  • Prompt: Kyungsoo’s family, being the rich family they are, invite the Kims over for dinner who also have a son. 

It’s like one of those times when you really want to just plug in headphones and drown in rock music. Yea, Kyungsoo only wishes he could as he welcomes the Kims over for dinner. 

His family is a prestigious one, if you could call them that. They’re actually a leg above the snotty and gaudy families alike, having the most successful franchise in South Korea. So what does that mean? Fancy cars, clothes, jewelry and anything Kyungsoo wants. But what does he want right now? Not to be standing here in a three piece suit (that is far too tight) welcoming his father’s partner who just moved to the country last week.

As planned, they are having a dinner to commemorate their partnership. And when he says “they” he means everyone except for him. He’s only here for the food and to keep up appearances, because his mother has a need to control everything about his life. It’s suffocating, almost as suffocating as this tie which he loosens with a wiggle of his index and thumb. 

“Ah, so you are the young Do?” Mr. Kim says, smile wide and phony like the person he surely is. Kyungsoo thinks so anyway. 

And is this man dense? Whom else could he be? Surely, everyone knows the Do’s have only one son and it would be fairly awkward for a stranger to dwell inside their house. Not to mention a stranger who shares many of his father’s features, like the circular brown eyes and rich plump lips. The spitting image of his father, he is–and he absolutely hates it. 

What does he say in response though? Nothing. He smiles with a polite 90 degree bow. Manners are always important. He couldn’t be caught slipping up in the face of company. Not unless he wants the wrath of his mother to rain down on him. He gets enough of her nagging. 

Like now, as he moves to sit at the table, she berates him for slouching ever so slightly. He fights the urge to roll his eyes and picks up the napkin to place in his lap. 

The servants bring the meals to the table and it is at this time that a young man enters appearing winded and out of breath. The platinum blond hair adorning his head is tousled and his cheeks are flushed. A soft chuckle comes through Kyungsoo’s lips. Being late to a family dinner is interesting, he thinks. 

“I’m so sorry, we got caught in traffic.” The boy bows toward his family, then toward his own. 

His mother, Mrs. Kim, waves a hand flippantly, “It’s okay honey, have a seat, we haven’t started just yet.” She seems nice. Kyungsoo frowns in humor, but speculates that it could be for show. He knows how his mom gets in front of others but behind the scenes when no one else is around, she is totally different. 

The boy takes a seat beside him, scooting up his chair to the table before turning to smile at him. Kyungsoo doesn’t really know what else to do other than return one of his own. 

“I’m Jongin,” he introduces and Kyungsoo really doesn’t care, but it’s always polite to introduce yourself. 

“Kyungsoo.” he says curtly…

I was shaking. They were like wolves circling around me. I decided to scream out at the tall one, the one with the smug smirk. “Who are you and What’s going to stop those… Those Monsters from coming after me again?!” The tall one smiled a little wider. Like he was looking down at the most wonderful bowl of ice cream on a hot day. “You can Call me TOP… and You, My little tiger lily.. You’re gonna be my girl.”


I was crying again. A little lighter this time, but I was crying again nonetheless. I looked up all the car window to look at the lights all around me, Gwangju, South Korea. That’s where I was right now, this is where I’ve been forced to come to.

my brother, Juniper, slipped his hand into mine. He didn’t look at me and if I said something to him he probably would have been able to hear me either. He had his earphones in and had gone on a talking strike. Mainly from my mother, he was not happy with her right now.

My parents got divorced when I was 9 years old and at first in the beginning I had taken it pretty well. but after the divorce, my mother decide to move back to Korea while my dad stayed in California with us. Me and juniper. I was content with that for a while, it wasn’t like mother was a deadbeat; she was very good mother and very consistent. We had two birthdays, two homes, two sets of friends. And I had been happy with that…

But about 2 months ago, that all changed. The driver claimed that he hadn’t been drinking that much, he claimed that he had given his car keys to a friend, he claimed he doesn’t remember what happened. What he couldn’t claim was the fact that he hit my dad in a fatal head on collision course when he was going the wrong way. And he couldn’t claim that he was no one that walked away from it fine. Well, not perfectly fine, but with a few bruises and scratches. But in that moment, in my eyes that was pretty much unharmed.

So I was forced to leave my Southern Californian home, with palm trees, skateboarding on the weekends, the most of all, my dad.

There were many things I had to leave behind. Our Mom made us pack about two weeks in advance after she told us. And now I only have one set of friends. And that was because the other set was across seas in California. 1 birthday. One home.

Jun, my brother. Had been livid, he threw a childish tantrum and refused to talk to my mother even after my father’s funeral. Which was about a month ago. But it’s not like things would be difficult for us being biracial shouldn’t be a problem should it? We were both confident in the Korean we spoke that and English grown up. We had visited the city frequently so we know our way around. We had cousins, aunts, uncles, and a few friends in this large city and a few of my cousins will be going to the same school we would.

But I know myself. & I knew my brother. And I knew it was going to take both of us a while to adjust to our surroundings each and our own different ways.

My thoughts were then interrupted by my mother speaking.
“ do you remember uncle Ken?” She started to ask us.“ Well all of your things showed up early and he took the liberty to get you guys mattresses and furniture for your rooms, isn’t that great?”

there was a little grunt of acknowledgement from my brother. & I gave him an annoyed look out of the corner of my eye. I didn’t care what he thought of this moment my mother gave us the world. I don’t care if he was older than me by 25 minutes. He would have to get over it. At least, that’s what my father would say. So I was the one speak up. I was normally a shy nervous person… Well, I am a shy nervous person but that didn’t mean I wasn’t sociable, and didn’t mean I didn’t know how to talk to people, and it certainly didn’t mean I was socially awkward because I wasn’t.

“ Uncle Ken?” I tried to sound enthusiastic about it but I think I overdid it. “ will he be there when we pull up?” I saw my mother smile at me from the rear view mirror and then she looked over at her “roommate.” Hansol. Who is the handsome man, and I know if I was my mom living with this man he wouldn’t have been just a roommate for a long .

“ No, he got a little busy. Before we landed actually. He had to go take care of some business downtown. But he promised you would have breakfast with you guys in the morning he’s so excited to see you.”

I smiled back at her, because aside from my dad, my uncle Ken was another important man in my life excluding juniper of course. Not because every time I saw him he will give us a present or told a funny joke. It was because he was another man in my life that was easy to talk to the man of his word would always be there for you and get you what you need to as long as they didn’t involve in wasting his time, and the best part about him was he never felt like he waste his time with me and my brother for his beloved sister aka my mother.

About 3 hours after we left the airport, we finally pulled up to the house that my mother and her so-called roommate shared. Not too big, not too small. Pale grey on the outside with bricks around the garage area and a smooth driveway. Two story. “ where that window is where your room will be, Amy. If I can, call you maybe can’t I?” asked Hansol. Surprised, I looked over at him and smiled. Yeah, definitely not just a roommate!

The cherry on top was when he stopped me from getting my bags out of the trunk of the car and started to take them in for me. My mother gave me a knowing look and then winked at me. Juniper was walking ahead of us, but I know he rolled his eyes. I could just feel it, it was like a twin thing. Just like when he turned his back after he annoyed me he would always tell me “ put your tongue back in your mouth.” Because I would stick it out of him.

I close my eyes before I cross the threshold of the house and prayed, because I knew that as of right now as of tonight, I would be starting my life new, I promised myself I wouldn’t be a different person. But I felt in my heart, that starting tonight this very moment this very Hour on this very night and South Korea, that things are going to change.

And I didn’t know how I felt about that.

[NEWS] 160901 GOT7′s Jackson Involved in an Accident Caused by Sasaeng.

News of GOT7 Jackson started trending at No.1 on the major search engine of South Korea, Naver, after the car that supposed to send him off to Japan for “2016 JYP NATION CONCERT MIX&MATCH” involved in an accident with a group of sasaeng. The car was hit by another vehicle from behind believed to be a group of sasaeng chasing after him. 

Jackson was seen limping upon arriving at the airport prior to his flight. Hewas sleeping in the car during the incident that he was not able to take any precaution thus hurting his waist.

JYP Entertainment has released a statement soon after the incident through the group’s Weibo account.

Hi everyone, this is JYP Entertainment.

This morning, when GOT7 member Jackson was on the way to the airport, a vehicle had knocked onto the car which Jackson was in, hence making him to suffer an injury. We have already arranged our staff, so that Jackson will go for the medical checkup at a local hospital upon arrival. We will have to look into his current situation, and report to everyone regarding it.

Pertaining to what happened today, we first want to thank everyone for the concern and support, but we hope everyone could use the right way to express their love. The company has many times asked everyone not to do car chasing, this is because we do not want to see such case like today happens. There is a huge risk to safety in car chasing, if a serious traffic accident happens, it is not just the artist, but also impose losses that we could not stop to anyone. We really do not want anyone getting hurt by car chasing.

So, we once again request everyone, to safeguard and others’ safety in the future, and to express love and support to artist without crossing the line of public order, to avoid any risk-taking behavior at all costs.

Fans were seen trending #GetWellSoonJackson on various social media platform especially Twitter, wishing for his well being. Previously, there were multiple cases involving sasaeng that cause severe harms to the idols. This is a serious matter and as a fan we should’ve love them right.

Note: In South Korean culture, a sasaeng or sasaeng fan (Hangul: 사생팬) is an obsessive fan of a Korean idol, or other public figure, that has engaged in stalking or other questionable behaviour that constitutes an invasion of privacy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Your Point of View 

“Can you believe it! We are finally here!” You said smiling excitedly as you continued stare out of the taxi car looking at the beautiful city of Seoul, South Korea.

“Am I dreaming?”

You looked at your cousin and could see her head against the car seat with her eyes closed smiling. You slowly leaned closer to your cousin ear and whisper. 

“Maybe.. just maybe you are.” 

Your cousin immediately opened her eyes and looked over to you with a death glare stare. You shouldn’t help but giggle and look back out the window. 

Working day after day just to save up for a trip to Seoul! It’s been your dream to come here ever since you got into Kpop and at last here you were.. You were here to go to one BTS concerts and of course to explore Seoul with your cousin that you grew up with since you two were in diapers.

You felt the car stop and you looked around you and realized you were at your hotel.

“How much?” your cousin asks the driver as you stepped foot out of the taxi and walked your way to the trunk.


“I swear I still feel like I’m dreaming,” your cousin says as you two walked through the hall looking for your hotel room.

“But we aren’t, we are actually here,” you smiled and you found your room number just in time. 

Your cousin handed you the hotel room key and you took a deep breath before opening the room door and you slowly opened it. 

“Time for the moment of truth!”

You two stepped in the room and rush of a excitement rush through you finally hitting you that you weren’t back home… 

You really were here! You really were going to go to BTS concert tomorrow night and you finally were able to cross things out of your bucket list.


“What?” you asked confused looking over at your cousin who was already on her bed laying down looking at her phone.

“My husband tweeted duh,”

You rolled your eyes and giggled. Your cousin had a thing for Taehyung and everytime he would tweet something on BTS account she seems to spazz out all the time.

“You concern me sometimes,” you commented as you finally took your first seat on your bed you were going to sleep on for a month.

“Like you don’t die when you see Yoongi tweet something,”

You looked over to your cousin and just smiled. You were caught… Of course you were going to fangirl over Yoongi.. HAVE YOU SEEN HOW HOT HE IS!


Your cousin couldn’t stay in the hotel room for at least 2 seconds without wanting to early explore.

“We don’t even know our way around Seoul and you want to go out and explore already?”

“I’m hungry. Plus we will figure out our way around here,” she says as she moves her eyebrows up and down and the elevator door opens in front the two of you. 

“I swear you are going to the be the death of me.”

“Love me,” 

You giggled and followed behind her and out of the hotel. Your cousin was the type to do anything she feelings like doing. She doesn’t care how ridiculous the idea might sound, she has to do it if she wants to do it. She hated more when people would constantly tell her what to do.

So even if you tried to stop your cousin from doing crazy plans, she will ignore you and do them regardless.. So at this point you learned just to follow along with her dumb stupid ideas… 

“Do you even know what your looking for?” you asked your cousin as you guys continued to walk without a damn destination.

“Somewhere where there is food.”

“And there is where?”

“Whatever catches my attention, now enough with the questions and trust me,” she smiles and you sighed and again.

Something tells you… you two were going to be walking for quite some time now.


 “HERE WE ARE!” She point a random restaurant and you giggled. You two have been walking for an hour around Seoul and couldn’t seem to find a restaurant your cousin wanted to try out too finally she made up her mind.

“About time!”

You two walked into the restaurant and you looked around the smell of spicy food hit your nose. You looked at the food on people’s table and could feel your mouth watering.

“Oh my god…” You couldn’t but to say and your cousin looked at you. 


“Sorry… i’m just starving.”

You two went to the register and paid for just the two of you being there since it was a buffet they only made you pay depending if you were an adult or a kid. 

As soon as you two were finally able to get your food, since you haven’t eaten since you’ve gotten off the plane you were starving!

You grabbed a plate and looked at all the food in front of you. What the hell were you going to choose? 

You grabbed the spoon for the soup and just as you were about to pour soup onto your plate, your cousin runs up to you and starts to hit your shoulder repeatedly.. 

“Y/N! Y/N!” 

“What?” you asked annoyed and she continues to hit your shoulder.

“Yah just tell me already!”

“Look over there!” your cousin says panicking and you looked to your right and saw nothing. 

You cousin slowly began to get impatient and grabs a hold of your head and points you at the direction she wanted you to look in the first place. Your eyes widen as soon as you started to see what your cousin was talking about.

“Is…. is that…”

“Jimin? YES!” 

You felt your heart racing and you felt yourself slowly dying…. 

“Holy shit..”

Without even thinking twice the plate you were holding on two slipped off of your hands and fall to the ground. 



Your eyes widen and you felt all eyes on you… Even Jimin eyes were on you.. You froze and felt completely embarrassed…

Now this wasn’t the way you wanted to track a member from BTS attention..


You paid for the broken plate and helped them clean up the mess… But you were embarrassed to even go back and try to get food again…

“Come on, just try not to drop the next plate.”

You rolled your eyes at your cousin’s comment and walked back to where the food was. You carefully grabbed a plate again and walked over to the soup that you wanted to get in the first place.

“Hey… Are you okay?” you hear a voice and you looked up and found Jimin standing right then and there. 


“Um… yes. I am thanks…. for asking” you said awkwardly as you turned a shade of pink.

Before Jimin could say anything else, your cousin comes in to get herself noticed.

“Y/N ar- Oh my god you jimin!” Your cousin says and you gave her a glare.

“Yeah,” Jimin blushes and you looked at jimin.

“Sorry about my cousin.”

“I’m glad to know she a fan.”

Wow your cousin is now the one who is getting noticed…

“We actually came to Seoul to see you guys tomorrow..” you couldn’t help but to say and Jimin smiles.

“So the two of you are fans?”

“I guess you can say that,” you said trying control your crying and screams to yourself. 

You constantly had to remind yourself in your head Jimin is only human. 

“Can we get a picture!” you cousin blurts out and your eyes widen. You can’t just randomly ask them for a picture… Or can you?

“Of course,”

Your eyes lighten as you hear those words leave Jimin mouth and set the plate down before you dropped it again and pulled out your phone. 

Your cousin stood next to Jimin as he puts his arm around her shoulder and you could see her eyes widen and the urge to scream. You took the picture and couldn’t help but to smile. Jimin was looking really good in the picture.

“Do you want a picture too?” Jimin asks looking at you and you slowly nodded your head and stood next to him.

Your cousin grabbed your phone and you felt Jimin’s arm around your shoulder making your heart beat super fast..You smiled at your cousin and at last she took the picture.

You and jimin pulled away and you looked at him.

“Thank you so much,” you smiled as your cousin hands your phone. 

“I’ll be seeing you two tomorrow?”

“For sure,” your cousin comes in and you smiled.

“Great,” he smiles and you both exchanged byes as he walked out of the restaurant..

Day 1 in Seoul… And off to a great start.


Jimin’s Point of View 

“Took you long enough,” Yoongi mumbles as I finally took a seat in the car.

“My bad I was taking pictures with some fans.”

“Did you get mobbed in there?” Yoongi asks me and I smiled.

“No actually… I saw a poor girl drop her plate in front of everyone and she looked embarrassed so I went up to her eventually and ask her if she was okay. Little do I know she was a fan and so I took a picture with her and cousin,” I said shrugging and Yoongi just stared at me. 

“Wow….That’s a first…”


“You going up to fan.” Yoongi says and I rolled my eyes.

“Plus she was beautiful so why not? You have to make sure was okay.. Am I right?” I asked moving my eyebrows and Yoongi smirks in return.

“Damn, kind curious on how she looks like.”

“Well she is going to be at our concert tomorrow.”

Yoongi looked at me with those face expression he usually makes when one of us say something stupid.

“You know how many fans will be there tomorrow?”

“I’m sure she will stick out,”

She certainly seemed to be the one to stick out..
