To welcome Korea National Contemporary Dance Company dancers An Lee Chang, Tae Hee Kim, and So Jin Lee on Sunday, Oct. 21, Trey thought we should learn some Korean. So at our weekly staff meeting, he gives us a handout with a few Korean words or phrases, explains a little about them, and we practice pronunciation.
Because the KNCDC dancers will be touring with TMP and engaging with people in Boise, Brooklyn, NY; Costa Mesa, CA; Salt Lake City, UT; and Chicago, IL, we thought we should share what we've learned so when you meet An Lee, Tae Hee and So Jin, you can say, "Annyeong-haseyo."
annyeong-haseyo (ann-YEONG ha-SEY-o)
Thank You 감사합니다
gamsa hamnida (KAMsa-HAMnida—the 'g' is pronounced with a slight 'k' sound)
You're Welcome 천만에요
Trey also introduced us to the funny and informative KWOW (Korean Word of the Week) videos on YouTube, with host Professor Oh.
