Dear readers of Korean through lyrics,

How are you? I hope your Korean studies are going well. I have to say due to a lack of new songs from FT Island, I don’t even know what songs to write about. πŸ™‚ However I do still watch Korean dramas so it’s good to translate from Korean drama OST songs to get to know a few more Korean pop singers. Today, I am going to do a lesson on the song “Superstar” from the Korean drama series “Mary staying out all night.” For those of you who are fans of Jang Guen Suk probably have watched this. It’s a relatively simple song so it should be easy to learn. πŸ™‚

Grammar Points:
This song doesn’t have complicated grammar so let’s learn how to make adjective from a noun.

For present tense:

For action verbs and descriptive verbs that ends with μžˆλ‹€ or μ—†λ‹€, add λŠ” to the verb stem.

Eg. 읽닀 – to read , μ±… – book
The booking that I am reading – μ½λŠ”μ±…

Eg. 재미 μžˆλ‹€- to be interesting
The booking that is interesting – μž¬λ―ΈμžˆλŠ”μ±…

For descriptive verb, add γ„΄ to verbs without the final consonant or 은 to verbs with a final consonant
Eg. μ˜ˆμ˜λ‹€ – pretty , μ—¬μž- girl
A pretty girl μ˜ˆμœμ—¬μž
Eg. μ’‹λ‹€ – good, 날씨 – weather
Good weather – 쒋은 날씨

That should be enough for your to be able to describe something now. Try to make up some sentences and post as comments! Why don’t we use some words to describe Jang Geun Suk? I will start:
멋진 λ‚¨μž! πŸ™‚
