90s kpop was probably the best. theres this weird throwback wave thing going on in korea right now. 90s kpop is starting to show up on the charts again so im sure the regular kpop fags on this board will learn about it once their kpop waifus start to do covers or collaborate with 90s kpop artists.
there's actually a lot of really good korean music -- the problem is that it doesn't "exist" in the eyes of most since there aren't really any good avenues for exposure. indie kpop is a thing and is probably way easier to find, but there's a pretty good shoegaze scene.
>>52939391 sorry anon Kind of off topic but how close do you need to be with someone before you can switch from that? I'm kind of worried that if I ever go to Korea and use casual speech either because I've misunderstood the nature of my relationship with the person I'm talking to or just as a simple mistake in speech they'll see me as a rude foreigner...
>>52939438 tbh if the person is older u should always be using it. it's just a cultural thing as a way of showing respect to your elders. if the person is younger than u then u can just use casual speech and expect them to use it.
of course the tricky thing is that ur not always gonna know how old everyone is so while u can visually discern old people from others, it's just a safe bet to use 존댓말 with strangers.
i'm not sure how much has changed since ive lived in the states for most of my life, but it's also worth considering that even among people of the same age group, people tend to call "senior" members of social groups 형 or 누나 and use 존댓말. e.g. a group of students would call an older male student 형 and use 존댓말 even if he was older by a few months. things might not be as formal as it used to be since korean social norms seem to be relaxed a bit now so idk
this is actually something i still struggle with because it isn't immediately clear how you should be addressing other people.
i seriously doubt you would be perceived as a rude foreigner unless the person you're interacting with is a rude ass old lady or something. most people would just be fascinated by a foreigner speaking korean and would probably appreciate the effort and be able to at least understand you and your intentions.
so yeah generally speaking use 존댓말 until the people you are addressing tell you that you can use casual speech or you feel comfortable enough to use it. sometimes i just address my peers as 형 or 누나 but still use casual speech.
