Help us come up with a new name!

Electric Ground has made a home here for about eight months, but lately, we’ve been entertaining the idea of giving it its own domain name instead of the blue1004.wordpress.com it’s been using. That was a name Blue came up with late at night without really having given much thought to it… at all.

Celebrity Sightings: Blue’s edition

When you search “Jang Dong Gun” on Korean search engines like Naver or Daum, “Jang Dong Gun in person” (장동건 실물) often comes out as a related search. I admit I’m not a fan of Jang Dong Gun, but so many people often cite him to be the best looking Korean actor and lament that he’s one of the least photogenic actors in Korea because he looks so much better in person.

Korean language and culture series: Loanwords

Many years ago, I first introduced Korean dramas to my Taiwanese-American friend, “C.” Of course, not knowing any Korean, she had to rely on English subtitles to watch and understand the shows. After completing two or three drama series, she told me one day that she recognized some Korean words to sound very similar to corresponding Chinese words that shared the same meaning. (Note: “C” speaks Mandarin.)
