I can read/write Korean…but understand it? NOPE. The poll could be very misleading? Anyone who knows the various differences in the pronunciation of certain letters could claim to read/write languages they do not understand.
It is nice to be able to see a Korean sign (in Hangul) and go: “Oh…Cheese Ramen. Mmm. I’m eating here.” But that’s the extent of understanding. City names and food and a few words (of course anything that is english sounding and written in Korean…Coffee is more like cauphy and card is Ka-duh…simple yet, a little different.
But since thousands and thousands of Koreans were busy ripping apart American flags on the streets of Seoul this weekend, I got stuck eating at Burger King on post. So much for liking Korean food when you aren’t allowed to eat in a Korean restaurant because you’re American. What a bummer.
