      바로 is often used with a verb & means directly/ right away. But i noticed in the song they used “바로 너” which i think more less translates as “yeah you, right over there.”

      하면서 is similar to “while”

    I was searching for volunteer opportunities in Korea, and one that appeared was teaching English in Gangnam–for free of course. Do they really need volunteers in the richest little area in the country?

      That’s funny!

    In Vancouver, West Vancouver is considered the “rich area” and lots of Koreans live there. So I guess we should have a “West-Van Style” ^^
