Meet KCR Djs: Jini Shim and Nick Mararac with K-Pop and More

Kpop N More! Tune in Tuesdays 10-11am for an hour of Korean music and mini Korean language lessons to quench your curiosity beyond that so-called “Gangnam Style”.

Some Korean language topics we talk about:

What does ‘물끄러미’ mean?

What are some idioms that contain the word ‘poop’?

Why can’t you say 당신 to say ‘you’ in real conversation while you hear it so often in song?

Yep. And some more.
