Hey there, your blog is helping me a lot and I was wondering if you know any reliable dictionary and where to buy it. One can't always trust Google right? Thanks

Well one of the most reliable online dictionaries is Naver. The only problem is that it can be difficult to navigate since it’s in Korean. However, it’s very useful and it also provides excellent examples.

This one isn’t a dictionary, but it is a great tool for conjugation.

As for physical dictionaries, my personal recommendation is the Collins Gem Korean Dictionary. It is reasonably priced, and offers both Korean-English, and English-Korean. For a starter dictionary, it is perfect, especially if you’re not willing to spend an extravagant amount of money on a dictionary.

Other dictionaries include:

  • Collins Pocket Korean Dictionary 
  • Oxford Advanced Learner’s English-Korean Dictionary (However, this is only a one-way dictionary and can sometimes be quite pricey)
  • Minjung’s Essence English-Korean Dictionary (This is considered one of the best English-Korean dictionaries, but it is VERY pricey)
  • Minjung’s Pocket English-Korean/Korean-English Dictionary (A little less expensive than the full dictionary, but it has great reviews!)

There are many more dictionaries out there, but Minjung’s has one of the best reputations. So if you want a very reliable and decent quality dictionary, it can be quite pricey!

You can try buying from Amazon, TwoChois, or YES24. It’s definitely worth your while scouring different websites for the best price available!

Hope this helped! If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!


Just a silly little piece inspired by Griff’s VA wonderful performance in the Berserk outtakes (link; what makes them even better is that other characters usually have just perfectly matching reactions in the shots).

Griffith’s real dream was starring in a Disney musical, but they told him they need a prince, and thus his quest for his own castle begun (sure, he set forth for being a king since then, butt Griff’s an overachiever and doesn’t believe in stopping mid-way). 

the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world. this can be regarded as a science, though many scientists will disagree with this due to a lack of evidence. astrology has been the foundation for many ancient faiths (including zoroastrian, norse, and babylonian).

of course, it’s not up to me to force you into believing in it. but it is a useful way to discover your inner self. even if you don’t fully trust it, you should look into your chart because you may find it interesting or just a bit of fun. however, if you disagree with the existence of astrology please do not offend people who do!

there are a wide range of books, differing in complexity. for beginners I suggest ‘astrology’ by bernadette brady and darrelyn gunzburg. it is very simple and briefs you on the basics. another good book is collins gem 'zodiac types’, it has a great amount of detail but still sticks to the basics. there are many websites around too. my preferred one is (but this is for those who already know the basics). google searches are effective too.
