What’s the English Equivalent to the Korean phrase “멋있어” or “멋있다” (romanized as “muh-shee-ssuh” or “muh-shee-dah”)

Itaewon Class Park Sae-ro-yi

The Korean phrase “멋있어” means “chivalrous” in English

The Korean word 멋있어 (romanized as “muh-shee-ssuh”) can exude many other concepts including: debonair, courageous or valorous.  There could be arguments that it means charming, suave or even heroic.  However, as many words are defined or received in terms of meaning, it can depend on so many factors including who is defining it or who is using it for whatever reasons.  Linguistically, semantics can have so many dimensions that make it almost impossible to provide the perfect twin in a completely different language.

3 Best (& Funniest) Ivy League Commencement Speeches for graduates disappointed by Corona

If you haven’t seen these speeches, you should.  And I would advise you listen to them more than once.  I have.

Not only do these 3 comedians share some of their “best stuff,” but I’d argue #2 gives you her “best stuff” which isn’t necessarily the most humorous.   I was touched by her “real advice” which are words you should truly listen to.

With that said and for all the unfortunate graduates who won’t have the opportunity to listen to a great speaker this year as a result of Covid-19, these are in your honor:

#3: Conan O’ Brien’s Dartmouth College Graduation Address – 2011

South Korea’s Richest People (as of April 2020)

Top 10 Richest Koreans by Net Worth

Note: The recent stock market volatility has stripped some of the riches of these top10:

At top, the “South Korean business magnate and the chairman of Samsung Group” Lee, Kun-hee is still #1. In Korean, his name is spelled “이건희” and in “Hanja,” he’s 李健熙.

He’s worth a cool $15.4 billion dollars (as of 3/26/20)

#2 Seo Jung-jin – $6.9 billion

Not to get confused with the soccer player, this tycoon is CEO of Celltrion, a biopharmaceutical company which develops drugs to treat cancer, influenza and rheumatoid arthritis, among others. Probably a good time to be in his industry, eh?

#3 is Kim Jung-ju, founder of South Korean online-gaming company Nexon; he is chairman of its holding company NXC. His current net worth is $6.5 bill.

What do you call someone who doesn’t follow the rules?

non-conformist, rebel and a deviant are what are currently defined as “someone who doesn’t follow the rules.”  (at least according to google’s search results)

Historically, there have been many trendsetters and pioneers that were originally disdained for “sticking out” or disobeying what society or even some small group they may have belonged to.  Today, more than ever, there will be and have been some amazing people who have been brave and literally failed to conform to what society or more conservative types may have deemed appropriate.  Nevertheless, here are some of the nouns that people associate with people who “fail” to follow the rules:

James Dean, the Actor as a Young Man: 'Rebel Without a Cause ...

    • nonconformist – this entry popped up #1 when I searched “person who doesn’t follow the rules”  Vocabulary.com secured the featured snippet space with: “nonconformist. A nonconformist is someone who doesn’t conform to other people’s ideas of how things should be.”

March 15, 2020

A week ago, Mark Canlis’s restaurant in Seattle was offering a $135 tasting menu to a bustling dining room every night. Eileen Hornor’s inn on the Maine coast was booking rooms for the busy spring graduation season. And Kalena Masching, a real estate agent in California, was fielding multiple offers on a $1.2 million home.

Then the coronavirus outbreak changed everything.

161k+ Dead from Corona; the next virus may reset history

Bill Gates predicted today’s unfortunate events 5 years ago

TLDR:

  • The Coronavirus has surpassed over 2.347 MILLION+ cases & 161k+ deaths globally
  • There are estimates that 500,000 will die here in the U.S. alone and also in the UK ;  some are even estimating as many as HUNDREDS of Millions to die
  • Corona has landed stateside and it WILL cripple the US (both financially & medically)
  • This is a stark warning about what is to come
  • Like Parasite’s allegorical messaging, “Corona” is not just a “health thing, ” but a larger message about how we should NOT ignore the “signals” & be smart like Bill Gates told us 5 years ago along with MANY others
The world is on (corona) fire

In JUST 105+ days we already have:

 2,347,778 cases & 161,126 deaths globally confirmed***
