BLOOD TYPE – 혈액형

血「ち」について話しましょう~今日のレッスンは血液型「けつえきがた」。あなたの血液型なんでしょう?

나는 A형 이다.

Let’s talk about blood types. What’s yours? I’m A. Do you know about blood types? Koreans, like Japanese people, believe that blood types can tell to a certain extent and account for some of your behaviour and mannerisms. Biological vs socialization vs personal preference. Why do people work so hard to explain why certain behave in a certain manner? Personally, I don’t think you can explain biologically how blood type relates to personality changes, especially with something as subtle as personality and preferences, but a little superstition can be pretty fun.

Blood type may not be directly translated to 피 타이프. BOO. that would make memorizing so much easier. But 혈액형 has a hanja = 血液型  (Xie yi xing) <– if you read chinese, it’s slightly easier? Not really? okay, i didn’t think so either. 😛

How about Horlick(s) Hyung? Much easier, but just remember it’s hyeol-ek and not actually horlicks. Hahahah

Being a true blue 귀찮니스 (a lethargic, lazy slob who finds everything troublesome), i’m too lazy to actually write up nice long post about blood types. Instead I will lift off people’s hard work and credit them. (No, actually, this post is really interesting, just click to read it on another tab or something)

According to the theory, people’s ABO blood type is predictive of their personality, temperament, and compatibility with others. The adjectives which best describe the traits of each blood type are as follow: Type A is considerate but shy, B is creative but whimsical, O is sociable but unorganized and AB is rational but calculating.

Looks interesting. Let’s look in detail. I’m A. as for the accuracy of it… I wrote this post unplanned.. hmm… yeah.. the outcome of the situation, MUST BE IN MY FAVOR OF COURSE. nvm if it’s not fair. … Um.. Emotions? People can tell when I’m pissed.

Heh. I guess you can kinda guess how accurate this is going to be.

So what’s the point of me posting this? You might get mad at me at my half assed style of blogging but..

I followed this Blood Type A bot on twitter. 그리고 새로운 단어를 배웠어요.  (You can search twitter for your blood type!)

I learnt a new word for ‘jaywalking’:

CAN YOU FIND IT?

무단횡단! In short, 무단 is like ‘without notice’, 횡단 is like ‘crossing the road’. Crossing the road without notice, haphazardly..

This little Blood Type Botty’s tweeting to say that we should all observe the rules, and not jay walk at pedestrian crossing.  I think BloodType A bot will live happily in Japan. The traffic system in Japan is so accurate, buses, trains arrived at the exact time down to the minute written at the bus stops and laws are strictly observed.

Unlike singapore, whose info system tells me my bus is gonna  arrive in 5 minutes, when in reality it’s like 15.. OTL

*Unnecessary but obligatory disclaimer: I’m not ACTUALLY that lazy (자기 자랑 타임: I actually am doing exercises with strength lately! AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF. SLOB IS ACTUALLY TRAINING), its just I’m at work, and this is considered .. um. 월급루팡 =.=
