Here's the fourteenth and final episode of the "Learn Hangul" series - a series designed to help you learn the Korean alphabet from the very beginning to the end.
This video series covers all of the basics. We've learned all of the basic vowels and consonants, all 6 syllable blocks, double consonants, strong consonants, diphthongs, the names of the letters, as well as all major and common sound change rules.
Today's episode will cover the final few sound change rules.
Thanks for watching this series, and I'm looking forward to new and different series related to learning Korean in the future~!

I love Seoul, I love HBC (Haebangcheon), and I love the Naciri brothers’ Casablanca Moroccan Sandwiches (6,000₩). I’ve been coming here for years and this post is long overdue.

It was while I was in the monastery knowing I'd be going back. Either that or just after I got back. I was inspired by Br.Rene with whom I'd discuss the upkeep of the aviary. First time I'd seen an aviary. I was also inspired by Kathleen Norris' rare volume of poetry entitled How I came to drink my Grandmother's piano and her style of using science
to explain that theres stuff more science can seek to explain.......
Went to the G-Star International Gaming Convention at BEXCO in Busan, but didn’t have the patience to wait in long lines to play games. The only swag I got was a free Rockstar (diet because I’m woman, sigh…). There were lots of mobile games, VR, and Star Wars this year. I loved seeing the big Nvidia and Playstation areas!

In this lesson, I will take you through the steps that I took to achieve a stunning image and cinemagraph in my home in just a few minutes.
I put my hair through various levels of hell on a daily basis. My resilient tendrils no longer shine and gleam like they used to (I was blonde, sue me!) Now I’m well on my way back to long, luscious locks thanks to Makarizo, an alternative to Olaplex.
Ever since Olaplex hit the market in Korea (check out 7 Seasons Style’s review here), people have been flocking to get their hands on the products. Olaplex has a variety of products which make big claims.
