So this week I’ve been busy as always, but this one Korean word plays in my head everyday lol. It’s this word –> 때문에 which, to my understanding for now, means ‘because of’ (pronounced ttaemune, for those who don’t know. gheis I’m looking at you ok you know who you are).
Well as I said, I’ve been getting into BTS (Bangtan Seonyeondan man idek) and there’s this hephap rap song called “BTS Chypher Part 2: Triptych”… I’ll explain these later. Anyway, I didn’t really know this word before since obviously I’m still new and haven’t came across anything regarding it but this word was repeated a few times. I was curious but not curious enough to search in the dictionary for the meaning hah so I just went and looked at the whole lyrics. And I knew the meaning because it’s the only repeating part in the lyrics.
누구 때문에? 제이홉 때문에
누구 때문에? 랩몬 때문에
다시 누구 때문에? 슈가 때문에
모든 스타일과 흐름은 다 방탄 때문에
So after knowing the word, I can now understand this part! It’s a fast rap and this is the only part that I could understand I guess, do you see how sad this is… So it’s like;
Because of who? Because of J-Hope.
Because of who? Because of Rap Mon.
Again, because of who? Because of Suga.
All of the style and flow is because of Bangtan
(no didn’t get this last line tbh)
And after understanding this, I was happy! Kpop/Khiphop really is benefical in some way. I went to school the next day and during physics I tried to sing said part because my friend is apparently used to me singing random korean songs everyday hah so when singing, I stopped and explained to her what 때문에 means, and then she said; Nadia 때문에! And I was like “yeah you’re right!!” and she was like “yeay!!” hah do you see how happy we are….. so, 누구 때문에? 나디아 때문에! ㅋㅋㅋ
In Malay I’m relating it to the informal Malay slang, “punya pasal” and this phrase works like 때문에 because the subject comes before this said word. “Siapa punya pasal? Nadia punya pasal!” lol sounds very rude in writing but normal in talking hehehehe trust me. Relating korean words/phrases to my native language is so fun omg there’s so many similarities ;;;;
Look, I know this post is pointless haha but I just need something to do. I didn’t feel like doing anything during the day so I became an owl and got active at night, but I still don’t feel like doing anything. Not even writing fics or playing games or watch TV. I just decided I should read the blogs I follow, and thus it leads me to write this post! (I think I finally made a post that’s 85% about a korean word at least hahaha)
About the song. Cypher means ‘anything cyclical’ according to urban dictionary. Like, you know, rapping. One after another! And triptych… ‘A work consisting of three painted or carved panels that are hinged together’… well I guess it’s because there are three rappers in that song so they’re all artworks… I don’t know man, hep hap people are so deep… and meaningful, and deep.
Hah, school holiday just started, but I’m going to school on a Saturday to finish up some tasks. Hope everything goes well. Aight, thanks for reading anyone!! I feel accomplished after this post heheh see ya in the next post~
