Learn Korean Words with K-Pop – Fiction by B2ST

takingpictures-1

While I was at the gym, I had my iPod on “shuffle” and the B2ST song “Fiction” came up. I will admit that I was a little obsessed (okay, REALLY obsessed) with the song when it first came out a couple years ago, but I haven’t listened to it for a long time, and it was refreshing to hear it again. However, I was *really* struggling to suppress my fangirl urge to start the penguin dance! Old habits die hard, I guess :D

Anywho, there’s one line in “Fiction” that I thought would be really great to explain, especially since it’s found in a ton of other K-Pop songs, such as T-ara’s “Lovely” and Big Bang’s “사랑 먼지” (“Love Dust”). Before writing this, I actually came to read a comment in the last blog post from Agata asking what this particular phrase means. (Thanks for the comment, Agata!) I hope this explanation answers your question!
