Konglish

Konglish: The Ultimate List in 2016

What is Konglish?

What if we told you that even if you’ve never studied Korean a day in your life, you already know plenty of words!

How is this possible? Perhaps you were a Korean scholar in your past life? Or maybe your roommate has been secretly teaching you in your sleep.

While those may be possibilities, the more likely scenario is because of a good friend of ours—Konglish!

Kong—WHAT?! Maybe you’ve never heard this word before.

Konglish (Korean: 콩글리쉬) is the Korean version of English words.

65. – 68. Dongnae Coffee Shop, Manna Dream, Funny Salon, Happy Coffee (Gimhae)

65. Dongnae Coffee Shop. This place, in the Yeonji Park lightrail station section of Gimhae, is so small and innocuous I didn't even notice it at first. But, they made me a decent cup of 2-shot Americano for a reasonable price.

In our ongoing series of the strange and wonderful ways South Korea loves to mangle the English language.

Even the damn furniture has a story to tell. It's a fun one. Get it??

But, a coffee story was ready to be told.

Oh, Konglish

Oh, “Konglish.” They try so hard, bless them.

Truth is, they probably don’t. I compared this one time with a Korean friend to when westerners get tattoos with some kind of foreign language to show how hard they are. Will it really matter if the Korean characters are a little off when you’re showing it off in, say, New Jersey? Think about it: dark and dork might be worlds apart in meaning, but in terms of them visually, they’re not so distant, are they? Exactly.

Here is a selection of gems I got just in casual shooting over the last several months. There will certainly be more, much more to come should I actually make an effort.
