10 Useful Korean Lines When You Finally Meet Oppa
Fan girls cannot live without subtitles, and we thank the drama and KPOP gods for blessing us with communities of subbers who make our lives easier. But what happens when you finally meet Oppa in real life? There's no subtitle to download, no hard subs to tide us in such life-changing event.
This is why some fan girls spend hours and hours self-studying Hangul or enrolling in Korean language classes. But for now, these ten Korean lines are enough to express how we feel when we're finally face to face with our number one bias:
This is an expression that can mean "Oh my god!" You'd be too flustered to say anything at first, because how can you, when you're staring at Oppa's poreless and gorgeous face?
Once you've finally composed yourself to somehow be coherent, start with their version of "Hello." This can be said any time of the day, because it can also mean good morning and good afternoon.
When you feel like you're really close to Oppa and that you have a bond that no other fan shares with him, you can drop the honorifics and just say, “Annyong!”
3. Oppa, sa-rang-hae-yo.
Follow your greetings by being direct to the point and telling him you love him in his own language. If you want to be more dramatic, you can even tell it to him in various levels of honorifics.
"Oppa, sa-rang-hae. Sa-rang-hae-yo. Sa-rang-ham-ni-da. Sa-rang-ha-ship-ssi-o."
Or impress him by saying I love you in different languages, and you can throw in a dialect, too!
4. Jal saeng-gyeoss-o.
This praise literally means someone was born beautifully and colloquially means good-looking. When your Oppa is so handsome (of course, he is!), there's really no more fitting praise than this.
5. No-mu yeppeo!
Korea sure has a huge stash of pretty boys. Song Joong Ki, anyone?
When your oppa is more beautiful than you, simply calling him handsome won't do. Gushing “No-mu ye-ppeo!" for "You're really pretty!" is the way to go.
6. Aaaah, kyeop-ta!
This is what you say when Oppa does his aegyo or anything that's so cute. Control yourself from pinching his cheeks by keeping your hands firmly to your sides, and just repeatedly tell him how cute he is. Then squee, and squee some more.
When you can no longer contain your emotions and your overflowing love for your Oppa, ask him to marry you! In jest, of course. He'd probably say yes, laugh while covering his mouth, and give you his most intense gaze ever. RIP, you.
8. Oppa, ka-ji-ma!
Sadly, all good dreams come to an end. When it's finally time to say goodbye to Oppa, stop him by shouting, with arms stretched towards him for that dramatic effect, "Kajimaaaa!"
When you finally admit that you really have to let him go, tearfully wish him to be happy. Always.
This is more for yourself than for Oppa. You'll be facing an extreme hangover after meeting your bias, but you'll survive until it's time to finally meet him again.
Yes, you will meet him again. Just trust on your KPOP and Kdrama fairies. Fighting!

19 year old pharmacy student-businesswoman from Pampanga. I, Kimberly Chaile D. Ocampo, started planning my own business back when I was 18 years old. Despite being a student, that did not stop me to work and start up something for me to earn my own money. I was also influenced by my parents who are both hands on when it comes to the marketing world. I have decided to start my own mini restaurant/fast food restaurant recently (Feb 2020) and it was named as “Hungry Hubb”. From the word itself which is “Hungry” we thought of something that would give people the biggest hint that we sell food.
Because of the sudden quarantine, every store was forced to close for our own safety that is why there was a sudden decrease on our sales. But Hungry Hubb managed to survive by focusing on online selling and social media promotion. Our best seller would be Shawarma salad which is mediterranean style. We add authentic Garlic sauce to our shawarma (Which is available in Wrap, Salad, & Rice). Every product that we sell are very affordable and delicious. Our starting price is only 50php. (Shawarma Wrap). For Shawarma Salad (70php). We also have Milktea (60php) and Rice meals such as Lechon Kawali, Chicken barbecue, and Pork Barbecue for only 120 pesos.
And of course, I wouldn’t make it up this far without the help of my family and friends who have supported be from the very start. This is an open letter and inspirational especially to students that want to earn their own money. Nothing is impossible. You just have to be determined enough to turn your plans into reality.

Hello, I'm Isabel and I'm a foodie from the South. I love trying out new dishes and pastries in the Metro while I ask myself if it's worth the hype. During this pandemic, I've decided to keep my foodie dreams alive by supporting my friends and small food businesses.
Aside from ordering from them, I've also created my own food blog via Instagram to express my thoughts and positive reviews about them to somehow help spread the word of their food and how other people should try it. At the end of the day, we are all helping one another through this difficult time by having multiple coping mechanisms - others to cook or bake while I write a review about what I eat.
Check out my food blog on Instagram @perdiviews and feel free to send me a message so I can collaborate with you soon!
It's not making sense. Maybe, it is. Everything is so blurry and vague. You can't seem to fathom what's happening. You're lost and searching- searching for the meaning behind what ifs and what could have beens. But life, we give meaning to life as if it's a beautiful paradise. Indeed it is.
But why we feel so gloomy, so empty? It seems like no light is passing through our soul. We're wounded. Hoping for healing. That's because, we're living. We celebrate life but we also fight for it. You feel all the pain, because you're living. You're not just alive, you're living. You can make it through all the storm and darkness. Wishing you well, Marj.
