When people hear me playing KPop.
- Other person: Do you even understand what they are saying?
- What my mind tells me to say: Actually, thanks to the internet and the help of other bilingual people around the world, I do. I look up translations whenever I need to understand the lyrics to a song that I don't speak the language for. Also, I can tell by the instruments used, the tempo of the song, and the tone of the artist's voice that certain songs are party songs, sad songs, love songs, etc. Plus, I like to think that just because there is a language barrier, it doesn't mean that I can't appreciate a catchy hook, melody, or the flow of the song. Okay?
- What my awkward self actually says: Well..no.
