im korean and i dont insert random “aish”’s and “yah”’s into my otherwise english posts u know why? bc it doesnt make sense and it serves no purpose other than using korean for the sake of using korean. so tell me why u non koreans think u can do it?
when you non korean ppl do this ur using korean just for the sake of using korean, and hence accessoring my language. ur using korean slang that u, as a non korean person, would never really use irl, to try and closer yourself to korean culture and at the end of the day it makes you a koreaboo. ur using my language to accessorize ur posts to seem More Korean when ur not korean at all.
most of u have seemed to grasp the concept that using hangul as a non korean person is appropriation so tell me why i still see so much of korean slang thrown around? do you think that just bc now its in an english translation its suddenly an english word? does changing 오빠 to oppa now suddenly make it an english word? its just as embarassing and racist as using straightup hangul
if you’re going to consume so much korean media then you have an obligation to respect korean culture and korean people as more than just figments of ur dream idol. pretending you’re korean for listening to kpop is not respectful, its not cute, it fetishizes korean people and works against us being treated as complex human beings
