225 – Children’s Taunt

June 5, 2012

Sorry for the long delay since my last post.  I’ve been very busy with work and visa preparations that it seems like I haven’t spent more than five minutes at home over the past two weeks.

But here I am again with a sound that anyone working anywhere near children in Korea will easily recognize.  It’s the typical Korean children’s taunt (comparable to the American “Na-Na-NaNa-Naaaa!”).  The boy in the recording is teasing his fellow student and calling her childish names, but the words are alterable and can be applied to nearly any situation.

    They also use it to taunt kids who have a “chemistry” going on as well
    kind of like ___ &____ kissing in a tree
