So we’re doing this video on Korean Sound Effects as kind of part 2 to our Korean Animal Sounds video. In fact, we had the idea for this video at the same time as the animal sounds video, but it just got lost in a pile of other video ideas. Anyhow, we’re doing it now! Huzzah! Be warned, though: we might be off about some of these things. We went over them with our Korean friends, and supposedly the list is alright, but we had some difficulties sometimes coming up with the English counterparts. What’s the sound effect for running water? How do you write that out?
So here’s a list of the Korean Sound Effects we go over in the video.
|Sound of Pain||Ouch/Ow!||ì•„ì•¼ A YA!|
|Eating||Munch Munch||ëƒ ëƒ Nyam Nyam/ ì©ì© Jjeop jyeop!|
|Disappearing in a Puff of Smoke||Poof!||ë¿… Byong!|
|Shooting||Bang Bang!||ë¹µë¹µ Bahng baaaahng|
|Coughing||Cough? Maybe Hack? I dunno||ì½œë¡ì½œë¡ kollogk, kollogk|
|Being Surprised||AH! OMG!||ì–´ë¨¸! eoh-moe!|
|Horses Walking||Clop clop clop||ë”¸ê¹Œë‹¥, ë”¸ê¹Œë‹¥! dalga dak, dalga dak!|
|Crying Babies||WWAAAAHHH!||ì—‰ì—‰! eong eong!|
|Sword Fighting||Schwing!||ì±™ì±™ chang, chang|
|Excited Heartbeat||Thump thump||ë‘ê·¼ë‘ê·¼ duhgun, duhgun|
|Farting||Pffft or Brriiips (depending on the volume)||ë¿¡~booooooooooo-ng~|
|Honking Your Horn||HONK HONK||ë¹µë¹µ~ – bahng baaaahng~|
Is it just us, or are Korean sound effects cuter than English ones? Eating is cute. Sighing is really cute. Hell, even farting is cute. Maybe there are other versions of the sound effects that we missed. We did, after all, get a lot of these from Martina’s students at her all girls’ high school. Maybe they left out the non-cute ones on purpose? Who knows. On that note, let us know if there are any big ones that we missed. Yeah!
Also, do make sure you check out our Bonus Channel. We have a few more Korean sound effects that we cut out of this video because the video was starting to get too long. See us do our cheesy swordfighting along with some yawning. Ching ching!
Also, as an added bonus, just because it’s awesome: here’s Spudgy the Poptart dog. NYAN NYAN NYAN!
