Names Koreans find funny

Sunday, October 05, 2014

If you're learning Korean and somewhere around the intermediate level this episode of 나는 남자다 may be of interest, as it features guy after guy for a full hour with names that Koreans find funny. The whole thing is subtitled and their names are written out, so there should be a lot of new vocabulary there for just about anyone at that level. The reason why the one guy is named Napoleon and not Napoleong is interesting too - not too many know about the suffix 옹 (翁 in hanja). So he got to be the non-nasal Napoleon.
