edit: now there’s TWO more hipster spots (busan and jeonju)! the more the merrier
Seoul is known as the Korean version of New York City. With huge shopping centers, media headquarters, etc. Seoul is the cool and sophisticated hipster spot. On the other hand, Busan and Jeonju are like the Iowa and North Dakota of Korea. There are fields, people with weird accents, and…… buffalo KPOP STARS!
Wannabes from Cali. Fanny, you silly girl.
Recently, singers hailing from Korea’s countrysides have been all the craze. With C.N.Blue’s leader (and Seohyun’s husband from “We Got Married”) Jung Yong Hwa, hip hop Supreme Team’s Simon D, and After School/ Orange Caramel member Rizzy Lizzy gaining attention for their Busan origin, we can’t forget our very own Jeonju girl TAENGOO! [that coloring took way longer than it should. christ.]
People from Busan and Jeonju are famous for their easy going, naive, and childish personalities (think 2PM Taecyeon’s role in drama “Cinderella Sister”) and of course for their unique satoori (accent).
As if they had planned together, however, these clans of Busaners and Jeonjuns are shedding their countryside image and going for a more sophisticated theme. With new paparazzi shots of Lady Taeyeon, these kpop stars are showing the world how much cooler they are than lowly Seoulers. They ain’t no Asian hillbillies!
Does that mean no more Kid Leader for Snsd? It may seem so at first, but we all know there’s a reason why they’re called Girls’ Generation. They’re all just a bunch of girl chodings except for Yoona, who’s actually a male choding.
Taeyeon is on her way to becoming a sophisticated countrysider, but she will always be a little kid at heart who just happens to be a world class star. no big deal.
So for you guys- Go to Busan or Jeonju and WORK THAT ACCENT!
Snsd enhances your Busan accent! No scam!
BWAHAHAHAH love this post SFM! Tiffany the wannabe Busaner! LMAO!
Isnt Taeyeon from Jeonju??
LOL @ Fany HAHAHAHA XD
love their accents; but taeyeon’s not from busan. BUSAN and JEONJU are like confusing LA and NY or Cali accent w/ Southern accent
NICE CATCH! thanks
i have no idea why i missed that -_____-
yeah, taeyeon is from 전라도, 전주 jeonrado jeonju. definitely not busan.
” They’re all just a bunch of girl chodings except for Yoona, who’s actually a male choding” LMAO
Oh Fany, she’s so cute. I miss that hair XP but she still has this cute aura around her either way
haha.fany sooo cute~
OMG! This post was totally awesome! Nice post and nice geography lesson. Keep it up. I don’t know if this is a new author but this article was totally interesting. I really wanted to read more but unfortunately it had to end. I love Tangoo! Adorable SNSD’s leader forever!
hahaha keep up the good work herr0, your writing fits writing in. XD
herr0 i’m liking your articles! they’re funny and yet informative at the same time. Way to go, go find on the video.
“unique accent called “satoori””
I may be wrong, but I’m pretty sure satoori just means accent/dialect. Seoul dialect is the standard one in Korea, and I think ‘satoori’ generally refers to other dialects – for instance, Taeng’s Jeolla dialect.
oops I shouldve clarified: accent Is satoori. people from jeonju or busan have unique satooris
I wanna hear some of Taeng’s countryside accent ><
Is this her accent?
Wooops! Missed that off there haha ( _ _)
Jeonju island like in that my girl drama hahaha i love dat 1
satoori means dialect, which in pure definition means a different language actually, under like the same family. accent is just the way of pronouncing words. or at least, that’s how it used to be with Korean. things have become a lot similar lately, so that’s why it’s considered the equivalent of accents now…it’s interesting actually. it’s a unique part of Korean culture.
anyway, i love when Taeyeon whips out her Jeollado satoori. cutest thing. too bad none of the girls are from Busan, that’d be a cute accent to hear too.
oh, and seeing video of the old ssgg show was awesome. that was 3 years ago already! Fany looks so different…in a good way of course
Nice I like see the story of snsd M/V
