If someone say that ‘You are The Bomb’ to you, how do you feel? The answer can be different depends on what you are. It is all about the language difference between Korean and English. For example, if your friend set you up with someone on a blind date and you did not like the person because he/she was homely looking, ugly and even terrible. You would say in korea “ He/she is ííƒ„ (=the bomb).” But it actually means “He/She is very nice and excellent in English. If you lack the understanding of the culture embedded that language, so you understand and interpret differently, the communication which is the ultimate goal of learning language can be far off. Therefore you have to find and learn the differences in order not to mistake.
