IRON FIST~~ WHO IS DANNY RAND?

대니 랜드는 누구입니까?................ marvel comics guy...

질문들..


Iron Fist is an American  TV series  on the web  that has been trending lately....

It's series of episodes are on Netflix and it's got it's loyal followers... 



I am not a movie  person..... I am not into drama.... be it American drama or K-drama or any other drama but strangely IRON FIST seems to call to me...

It beckons my curiosity and leaves me full of questions....


Not sure if because a close friend is hooked to it or it's my busybodiness that wants to check it out?


Here are my questions.....


1) Who is Danny Rand? 

   I know he is an only child. 

   I know that he lost his parents at a young age.


2) He lived in a monastery......what monastery? What happened to him there? 


3) He seems to be the sole survivor of some catastrophe...... what catastrophe? Mass poisoning of a city of people?


4) Rand enterprise....... His father and mother owned Rand Enterprise before they died 15 years ago.


5) Who taught Danny Rand martial arts?


Most important question of all


6) Why is Danny Rand so determined to become IRON FIST? Why did he come back to New York City? Who is his avenging? He wants to reclaim Rand Enterprises from Harold Meachum and his wretched family ?


7) What is Danny Rand's motive?  His ultimate goal and destiny?




Note Danny Rand is not the only Iron Fist..... there are others

Hangul ~~ Off The Beaten Track...

Korean Conversation 

Not Found in Textbooks~ The Real McCoy

For Foreigners by a foreigner


Part 1


Hi, My name is 인삼. I am not a Korean but I am interested in many things Korean.... Not necessarily bitten by the Korean Hallyu Wave but interested in the trueness of Korea itself....

The History, culture, people and particularly the language.

I have gone through my routes to immerse myself in Korean language and culture..

I have taken the textbook route. The textbook route is good in it's own way... it lays the foundation of the Korean Language like learning to read and write the alphabets etc but no matter how you try, there is always something that will be missing

The only way is to have real life conversations with Korean friends. I have a really good and close friend who I am grateful for the friendship and also the endless help and correction he tirelessly gives me. He is none other that the co editor of this blog that I am so priviledged and honored to share with him...


Anyway here are some things that I would like to share with you. Hope you find this useful  There's a lot of info but this is just a start..


1 ) 알겠어( 요 ) I got it..... I see.....

      when you tell someone that you get his point!


2 ) 그거 너꺼야?   Is that yours?

      asking someone if something belongs to them... in an informal friendly way


3 ) 어디 있지 (요)  Informally asking where is something? Maybe you lost something and need to find it..... usually for objects rather than a place.....


4 ) 좋겠어 (요 ) it has got to be good !

     This has a slight wow factor .....when you want  to tell someone that something is  good!


5)모르겠는데 .... A more polite but very informal way of saying that you do not know..... or are not sure  


6)어떤 거 ........which one?

    Asking which one is the one 


7)  됐어(요)..... Nevermind ..... forget it! .........

      Be careful..... this can sound a bit rude if used harshly


8 ) 아무 거나 괜찮아........ Anything is ok.... no difference

       For example, your friends ask you what you would like to eat for lunch today..?     

       You can answer " 아무 거나".......  meaning anything....... is ok


       아무 데나..... ㅡmeans anyplace....


To be continued.....Watch this space for part 2 etc


For starters I only give you a bit..

It"s enough for starters


I hope you practice this with your Korean friend........ NOT with your Grandma or  Seniors


Mine is friendly conversation...


Not too rude.... not too polite....


Just is!


till next time


sincerely....


Ginseng

Many people have always been fascinated with the Korean peninsula: from it's rich history that spans many centuries to 
Korea in the modern day. 
Korea has really evolved through a change in the ages to where it is today.

Whatever history Korea has been through, North and South has always been ethnically and culturally homogenous.
Even after the great divide, ie .... Korean War .... in 1950, North and South Korean, and many things always remain ...... and stays in the hearts of the people. 

One aspect is surely the language. Apart from the dialects, the Korean language is more or less the same.

In this new millennium, there seems to be a renewed interest in Korea. Many eyes, ears and even hearts are tuned in South Korea.

This is not because of the Hallyu wave, which involves kpop and kdrama but many more factors. 
South Korea is still pretty conservative but it has reinvented itself in a good way: South Korea is open to change and it's preserving it's roots and culture.It's becoming an oyster to the world ....

The world is getting smaller and changing with the immigration policies, Korea has an influx of foreigners who are interested in the Korean dream and so on. 
South Korea has presented itself very well. It attracts people to her shores.

The Korean language uses the Hangul alphabet system ... In South Korea it is called Hangul, but in North Korea it is called "Choson Muntcha.

Before the 15th century, Korean people were basically using Chinese script which was great for Korean scholars but it was a bit difficult for ordinary people.

So in the 15th century a Korean King called King Sejong was the greatest decision to develop a new writing system. A writing system for the Korean people which was easier and clearer to use. He called it HUNMIN CHONGUM This is the first generation Korean Alphabet that became Hangul.
Hangul is not without it's critics ... Many Korean scholars still refuse to actually use Hangul until 1945, just before the Korean War. They still prefer to use Chinese script and writing system.

The Korean war in 1950 caused the great divide between North and South Korean saw some changes in Hangul.
Korean Orthography (as set by the Korean language society) in their "Proposal of Unifying Korean Orthography ..... is still used by North Korea and also south Korea after Korean liberation in 1945
But because of the new establishment of DPRK and RK (1948) North and South have different own policies. 
North Korea wanted to emphasize Korean spelling .... the new ruling for korean orthography.

I can go on and on ....   and I can get some things about Korea, but I will take a break here as .... this is my first time as a blogger.  I am a blogger newbie ....


but there are more good things postings to come ..... 
Thank you for reading my humble writing

Yours sincerely
Ginseng  .. Co Editor on team blog

영어에는 주어와 함께 쓰여서 주어의 자격이나 존재를 표현해 주는 Be 동사가 있다.

 

그럼 한글에서는 어떨까?

 

한국어에서는 이러한 역할을 '~이다'라는 표현이 해 준다.

 

 

그런데, 영어보다 좋은 점이 있다면 영어에서는 Be 동사의 형태가 인칭에 따라서 am, are, is로 달라지는 반면에 한국어에서는 인칭에 관계없이 모두 '~이다' 또는 '~있다'로 표현된다.

 

 

과거형도 영어는 was, were로 표현되는 반면, 한국어에서는 '~이었다', '~였다'  또는 '~있었다'로 가능하다.

 

 

 

예를 들면...

 

 

나는 한국인이다.

 

그녀는 BTS 팬이다.

 

우리는 모두 좋은 사람이다.

 

나는 지금 한국에 살고 있다.

 

 

 

나는 학생이었다.

 

그는 유명한 축구선수였다.  

 

그들은 한국에서 공부하는 외국인 학생들이었다.

 

그녀는 예전에 영국에서 살았었다.

 

우리는 어제 회의 시간에 그곳에 있었다.

영어에서도 명사을 'make + a + 명사(noun)'의 형태로 동사화 하는 경우가 있는데 한글에서도 '하다'가 그와 같은 역할을 합니다.

 

 

물론 모든 명사를 그와 같이 동사화 해 주는 것은 아니지만, 상당히 많은 경우에 그러한 표현이 가능합니다.

 

 

예를 들어 볼까요?

 

 

1. 사랑 / 사랑하다     2. 식사 / 식사하다     3. 사냥 / 사냥하다

 

4. 졸업 / 졸업하다     5. 숙제 / 숙제하다     6. 감사 / 감사하다

 

7. 기념 / 기념하다     8. 준비 / 준비하다     9. 도착 / 도착하다

 

10. 출발 / 출발하다     11. 기억 / 기억하다     12. 수영 / 수영하다

 

13. 공부 / 공부하다     14. 출석 / 출석하다     15. 결석 / 결석하다

 

16. 입원 / 입원하다     17. 퇴원 / 퇴원하다     18. 건강 / 건강하다

 

19. 촬영 / 촬영하다     20. 상영 / 상영하다     21. 방송 / 방송하다

 

22. 시청 / 시청하다     23. 찬성 / 찬성하다     24. 반대 / 반대하다

 

 

 

위에서 보는 것처럼 많은 명사들은 뒤에 '하다'를 붙여서 동사가 됩니다.

사용 방법 - How to use

 

 

기수는 수효를 셀 때 사용합니다. 예를 들면, 수를 셀 때와 돈을 셈할 때 씁니다.

Cardinals are used in counting. Ex. when you count numbers and calculate money.

 

 

몇 상자의 사과를 가지고 있나요? How many boxes of apples do you have?

 

열네개의 상자를 가지고 있습니다. I have fourthen boxes.

 

 

얼마예요? How much is it ?

 

오천원입니다. Five thousand won.

 

 

 

서수는 차례를 나타낼 때 씁니다. 

Ordinals are used in expression of order.

 

나는 형제자매 중에 셋째입니다.

I am the third born.

 

 

 

[예외의 경우들 - Exceptions]

 

 

여기에서도 예외가 있습니다.

There are several exceptions.

 

 

1. 십단위 이상일 때 - When it's over ten.

 

십단위 이상부터는 숫자의 첫 단위가 일이면, 일은 빼고 말합니다.

When the number is over ten and it starts from 'one', then we do not tell the 'one'.

 

예를 들면, 백원, 천원 만원 등의 경우가 그렇다.

For example, one hundred won, one thousand won, ten thousand won etc.

 

 

2. 십 이하의 수를 말할 때 - When you tell below ten.

 

당신은 몇 개의 과일을 가지고 있나요? 

How many fruits do you have?

 

나는 오렌지 다섯개와 사과 일곱개를 가지고 있습니다.

I have five oranges and seven apples.

 

 

3. 오 이하의 수를 말할 때 - When you tell under five.

 

나는 개의 수박를 가지고 있다.

I have one water melon.

 

나는 개의 사과를 가지고 있다.

I have two apples.

 

나는 개의 오렌지를 가지고 있다.

I have three oranges.
