We have also included real life examples of their use. You will gain a thorough understanding of the vocabulary, its nuances, and its origins. You can use this as a quick reference book any time you run into K-Pop and K-Drama lingo, or as a study reference by utilizing the conversation examples included on every page. Whatever your goal, this is a great way to expand your K-Pop and K-Drama knowledge; your window into the fascinating world of Korean culture!

A dictionary of honest human interaction, Korean pop culture, and everyday K-POP life. A resource for language learners confused by real-world Korean, and a tool to help you understand the world of a K-POP fan. But more importantly, great entertainment for everyone.
