The North Korean Song – GOOD TO SEE YOU!

절싸안고 좋아 눈물일쎄
All of you overseas Koreans, All of you brothers and sisters,
It’s so nice meeting you like this
I hugging, it’s laughter.
I love bowing and embracing, it brings tears

<Refrain>
Oh~ Nilririya

정다운 그 손목 잡아봅시다
조국위한 마음 뜨거우니
통일 잔치날도 멀잖았네
All of you overseas Koreans, All of you brothers and sisters
Won’t you take my wrist affectionately,
Since our hearts are warm for the fatherland,
The day of unificatation can’t be that far away

3. 동포 여러분 형제 여러분
애국의 더운 피 합쳐 갑시다
내 고향이 좋아 행복이요
내 조국이 좋아 기쁨일쎄
All you overseas Koreans, All my brothers and sisters,
Let’s bring together the hot blood of patriotism,
I love my hometown, it’s my happiness.
I love my country, it brings joy.

Kangaji’s notes: This song can be found on South Korean KARAOKE MACHINES pretty easily because it’s sung during inter-Korean activities sometimes and most South Koreans know the refrain.

PSY Is a MOTHERFATHER Gentleman

Psy comes out with a new video called mother father gentlemen.

I decided to translate the lyrics before everyone else does, but he uses an awesome combination of slang and cholla dialect, so the lyrics come out as kind of ghetto, because ghetto lyrics are ghetto lyrics. Also, he doesn’t name any adult diseases, it just sounds like it to English speakers.

 

Translated Lyrics:

Ah~!

It’s gotta [make my body] so hot.

I don’t know if ya know why

Because we like our memes slutty

I haven’t had the time to keep my Korean up for the last way-too-long, but since Kangaji is soon to be within daily nagging distance, I will try to post something racy on a weekly basis.

As usual, the sports daily fills up space with a survey of Youtube comments about women.

18+ “Kuiyo Misong” release controversy . . . Netizens reproach “national shame”

Criticism is arising for the release of a 19+ version of “Kuiyo Misong” [“Cute smile”].

Recently the online video site Youtube carried a video of three women following along with “Kuiyo Misong” and sexily dancing in place, drawing a lot of interest. In the video, the women sit side by side on a bed and make sexy gestures. They give a dizzying performance, pulling down their sleeves and wiggling their butts.

But some netizens are raising their voices in reproach for the women in the video and commenters. It is not only that the behavior in the video is vulgar, but ecause they worry that since they put the word “Korean” [in English] in the title they will spread a negative impression of Korea and Korean women.

Netizens who saw the video responded, “While Kuiyo Misong parodies are trendy this isn’t like that.” “It brings shame to the whole country.” “In the second part they took off all of their clothes so it is good that they were stopped.” “I don’t understand why they would make something like this.”

Some netizens drew attention with the claim that the women featured in the video were transsexuals from another country.

The video in question.

And I just lost my weekend clicking through “Kwiyo Misong” videos.

Korean Internet Memes: Chun Tank!

In case you’re wondering what the hell is going on in this video Chon Du Hwan was a South Korean General and Dictator famous for suppressing democracy by killing protestors and the citizens army in the1980 Kwangju Uprising.

Internet trolls from everywhere but Cholla province where the massacre happened like to make fun of Cholla people for their progressive voting stance, so people who troll on Cholla people for being dirty commies and pinko liberals turned Chon into a super villian anti-hero who turns into a TANK dubbing him CHON TANK.

More of PSY. (*sigh*)

More coverage on the PSY thing.

Maybe Chairman Kangaji can, if he gets bored, do a side-by-side analysis of the English and Korean versions of his apology.

Original from Sports Tong-a.

US netizen peition, “Cancel PSY’s White House performance”

Some American netizens have started a petition against PSY’s concerts.

On the White House “We the People” homepage over 500 netizens signed a petition to have PSY’s performance at the White House Christmas concert attended by the Obamas canceled.

But the White House immediately blocked the petition due to a violation of the rules of the site.

American media outlets such as the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER revealed that PSY sang songs reflecting anti-American sentiments twice between 2002 and 2004.

In response criticism of these past performances PSY issued a statement of public apology on the 8th. He explained, “The song “Dear America” that I had been featured in eight years ago was an emotional response to [the deaths of] two middle school girls and the Iraq War. At that time people all over the world shared an anti-war feeling.”

“The fact that there is freedom of expression is clearly something to be grateful for, but the fact that there are limits to the the words of expression was also understood. There is only regret that the lyrics to “Dear American” are translated. Throughout my life I will think with regret of the pain caused by the words in the song.”

According to the American media, the family of President Obama plans to attend, as is customary, the “Christmas in Washington” event held in the National Building Musuem in Washington DC. PSY is slated to perform at this concert.

우리 미국 백인은 싸이의 맛이있는 사과를 반드시 받으야됍니다.

Don't Hate, Appreciate
백인 국민 여러분,
안녕하십니까. ROKDROP의 Kangaji입니다. 2004년에 싸이가 반전 데모 음악회동안 우리 눈색 민족을 아주 심한 가사로 우리네 작은 횐 마음들을 타졌습니다. 이즉을 죄때문에 저는 FOX NEWS의 Michelle Malkin께서는 ROKDROP blog으로 그죄가 사회적으로 처벌해야한다고 했습니다. 이 사회적인 처벌을 받기 때문에 싸이가 잘 못을 깨달랐어서 우리네 백인민족에게 이사건에대한 사과를 줬습니다. 이사과는 아주 크고 빨간 색 사과였습니다. 이사과는 조건이 있어도 근데 싸이가 말 타는 쭘을 발전하기 위해 말을 매일 엄정나게 많이 먹이야됍니다. 우리의 상쳐때문에 싸이가 자기 귀중한 말을 오늘 못 먹습니다. 그러나 이말위홰서는 싸이의 귀중한 사과를 받으십시오. 사과를 받기후에 우리는 다~ 내일 싸이의 농장으로 갈 수 있고 같이 말을 먹이고… 그리고 밤에 싸이와 같이 말 탈립시다. 사과를 잘 받겠습니다.

인차 강아지동무의 생각이다.

Fellow White People!
Greetings. It’s Kangaji from ROKDROP. In the year 2004 during an anti-war concert Psy hurt our little white our snow colored race with his extreme lyrics. Due to this sin which deserves death I told Fox News’ Michelle Malkin through the blog ROKDROP.COM that this sin must be punished socially. Due to receiving this social punishment, PSY realized that he messed up and so he gave an apology(apple)*(Sagwa means both apple and apology in Korean) to our white race. This apple-ogy was very big and red. Even though the apple-ogy had conditions because Psy had to develop the horse riding dance he had to feed a gynormous lot of horses everyday. Due to our wounds Psy cannot feed his precious horse today. Therefore for the sake of these horses we must accept his apple-ogy. After accepting his apple-ogy tommorow we can ALL~ go to Psy’s ranch and feed his horses together. And at night we can ride the horses with PSY. (This has a double meaning as well.) I will do my best to accept his apology!

That’s Comrade Kangaji’s direct thoughts!

The underside of plastic surgery in K pop

Found this story in a gossip column.

Original on In’gan Sports.

A pitiful event occurred when Miss B of girl group A cried at a broadcasting station and had to leave because the swelling hadn’t gone down from her “Pinnochio nose”. Group A just published a new album is in the middle of[promotional] activities. That day, the same as other days, they were waiting to perform on a broadcast television music program. But a supervising PD came and blocked Team A’s performance. The reason really took my breath away. The swelling in the nose of Miss B, who had cosmetic surgery, hadn’t diminished and had swollen larger. Her face had “transformed” to the extent that she couldn’t go out on the broadcast. In the end the PD stood and cancelled the performance and A group cried as they left the station. Miss B, take care. How much has her nose changed . . .

Hyona — Will she go too far?

Wow, am out of practice. Quick and dirty and barely legible translation.

Hyona "Ice Cream"

Hyona, stronger than the bubble bath? Rated 19 video notice.

The judgment for what audience age rating the music video for Hyona’s new song “Ice Cream” will receive, giving notice to the appropriate level, is drawing attention.

Hyona is scheduled to release the feature music video for “Ice Cream” on the 22nd. Even though the “Ice Cream” teaser released on the 19th was rated for audiences age 15 and up, it is drawing attention for its unprecedented bubble bath scene, and level of the music video is expected to be much higher. A representative of the agency Cube Entertainment hinted, “It will feel a little stronger overall.”

In the past they [music producers] have intended to avoid the “age 19” rating, but recently, while there is a policy that teens can’t view, a higher level of expression has been allowed. Accordingly, it is likely that Hyona, who has preferred unconventional performances near the limits, will choose to take an “age 19” rating this time.

Recently there is the example where Ka-in put the music video for “P’iona [Bloom]”, which receive an age 19 rating, online, where it received a warm response.

Hyona’s EP Melting has been leaked out overseas and was urgently released at 2 PM on the 22nd. Notwithstanding the album’s unexpected release, as of this afternoon the album has leapt to number five on the charts of music sites such as Melon and has received a warm response.

Since the “Ice Cream” teaser video was released two days ago it has been ranked the most searched for video this week with more than 2.4 million hits.

Korean media on Russian women

The Korean male perspective upon Russian women has, well, certain subtexts. Slavic women are exoticized and viewed as sexually available. So, this article caught my attention.

From Sports Seoul.

‘From face to figure, perfect!’ Russia’s beautiful women, ‘Jackpot!’

Miss Soviet 1988

[Caption: 1988 ‘Miss Soviet’ pageant photo / Russian site]

A socialist country has a feeling of dreary standardization. But even inside there people’s every actions accomplish something. [?] The praise of women’s beauty is the same.

Recently photos of beautiful women released from Russia are drawing attention among netizens. These are the photos of the first Miss Soviet pageant held in the Soviet Union in 1988.

In this pageant held by the Soviet generation, that erected the world’s first socialist nation in 1922 and dissolved/collapsed in 1991, the photos are not very different from today, if you overlook that they are only in black and white. Of course there are dresses with plunging necklines and they held a swimsuit judging that seems appropriate.

Miss Soviet pageant

[Caption: Photos of the process Russia’s first beauty pageant, the ‘Miss Soviet’ pageant.]

In particular world netizens said in awe, “Whether Soviet or Russian this countries womens are beautiful.” As they said, these women’s appearances are too incredible. Even more, this being a time when cosmetic surgery was not widespread, they are even more astonishing.

The various responses of every country’s netizens are, “The times have changed but there are certainly beautiful women in Russia.” “In any generation, the beauty of Russian women is guaranteed.” “They are more beautiful than the artificial people of silicone and plastic nowadays, it is so cool.”
