Korean Word of the Week 05.06.01
Again, I am the number 1 Google result for "Korean Word For XXXX" and again, the searcher did not use quotes. The word this time is "cute." I hope he comes back so he can benefit from my wisdom.
Gwiyopda - To be cute. It is also homophone for "to have no ears." Now there is a well-planned language. I do not care for women with prominent ears. It is not like I need a handhold or anything...that is what pigtails are for.
Now take this woman, Kaori Ohara (no, she is not Irish), I cannot say she is gwiyopda because she is a) a grown woman -- it is awkward to call them "cute" and 2) she has ears that stick out like the doors on my Mercedes-Benz. Goodness, is she a grown woman, or spank me and call me Chun Du-hwan. And would Buddha be envious of those ears? I do not know; I do not believe in him...I am a Communist, dammit!
Now, the lovely Senna Matsuda (below) is gwiyopda is every way. She has got the pink undies, bubble gum, and "jail-bait" teddy bear going for her in the cute department, plus her ears are shyly tucked away under her hair.
But after all is done and said, she is merely a Jap capitalist whore pleasing to the eye. There is a girls middle school visiting the Palace on a field trip today. The Beloved Leader will get some "cute" stuff or I am not the Sun of the Korean Workers' Party.
