Hangeulove: A New Beginning

Hangeulove Icon

I realised that I haven’t posted anything since moving the blog over (and it was done over exam period, lol! Queen of Procrastination is I) so here goes! As a summary of the previous post, I’m moving over to Hangeulove because DailyBap no longer reflects the blog’s present and future.

From DailyBap to Hangeulove After 7 Years

TLDR; DailyBap is moving to Hangeulove.

In a blink of an eye, it has been 7 years since I first created DailyBap on Tumblr, where I posted daily photo edits with their related Korean words, which was how I came up with its name. I mainly did it to help myself remember Korean words easily, and was glad when fellow Korean learners told me that it was helping them too. :)

However, personal life and work took over, and I found it hard to continue posting daily, which was why I stopped. Then one day, I had this genius idea that I wanted to start blogging again and thought I could turn DailyBap into a Korean learning progress blog, which till this day, I still doubt ever actually became one. ><; Anyway, I moved all of my Tumblr posts here and started updating more regularly, especially through Instagram posts.

Late of 2016, I came to the realisation that my blog name was no longer relevant to what I post and I wanted a name that would more accurately reflect the current and future of this blog, so I cracked my head and came up with Hangeulove! Because, you know, I love 한글 (Hangeul). Creative, right? (sarcasm) 🙄

In January 2017, I updated all of my social media channels to reflect the new name, but this blog was the hardest to do, as you cannot simply change the URL, WordPress would instead create a new blog with the new name and ask you to redirect visitors over from the old blog. I thought long and hard about whether I wanted to actually change the name and lose all of the analytics this blog had gained, and after months, I have finally decided that this would be the right move. If not now, when?

With this, I want to thank everyone who has visited this blog in the past years, even if you did accidentally stumble upon it as you were searching for B.A.P (true story, started happening after B.A.P made their debut, lol 😂 sorry for the disappointment!), and for leaving rare comments that let me know I am not always just talking to myself. I hope to see everyone over at the new blog, Hangeulove! 💕

49th TOPIK Results – Level 5 Again

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Results of the 49th TOPIK were released at 3PM (KST) on Thursday, 22 Dec, but I was down for a whole week with a bad cold and wasn’t able to blog then.

Anyhow, here are my results! I’m revealing it in full again, because even though I didn’t get to study as much as I’d like (partly due to applying late and working at home on weekends) and wasn’t expecting much, I’m glad that I not only managed to maintain my standards without actively studying in the past two years, I also improved slightly, especially in the written section. I did put in a little more effort into writing, so I’m hoping that’s what did the trick. :p

topik-49-20-nov-2016

I seriously thought I screwed it up after the exam ended, but phew! Though I’ve missed my Level 6 yet again, I’m okay because I know that I’m almost there!

I hope everyone got the results you were hoping for! And if you didn’t, it’s okay, don’t give up! Let’s work hard towards our goals together. :)

A special MLR collaboration with Constance for Instagram!
I mentioned in an earlier Instagram post that I might start an Instagram MLR thing going and here is the first one! :D It sure was hard fitting two people into the 1 minute limit, but we did it! Though at a cost of cutting out a lot of things we wanted to say, lol.

Subtitles are available in Korean and English.

한국 사투리 Korean Dialects

Oops, this was in my drafts for a month, lol. But yes, I love Korean dialects. I showed this to my Busan friends and one said it was pretty legit. xD

Fellow Korean learners who like dialects too would enjoy this! It’s really interesting to see how they differ, especially Jeju’s. Most Koreans can’t even understand Jeju dialect!

K-DRAMA; 닥터스 Doctors

I kind of had some sort of high expectations for this drama; not just because I’ve liked Park Shin Hye since forever, but also because I read that she did her fight scenes without a stunt double. How amazing!

What wasn’t amazing was the rest of this drama’s plot. -_- The only thing that kept me watching was the other couples instead. Moon Ji In was a fantastic supporting role to Park Shin Hye, Yoon Gyun Sang left the deepest impression on me in this drama as compared to his other dramas because his character was just so adorable and Kim Min Seok’s character with his satoori and bromance with his brother. :3 I was also annoyed that Ji Soo’s character just disappeared in the middle without a proper ending – I was curious about his family!

What’s sad is that the ending was also really boring for me. :/
