    he’s epic for understanding the American use of “sick” so well.

    Oh, that’s just pickled great.
    My last name is “Sibal”.

    No wonder I get smirks when I meet Koreans.
    “Hi, I am the one who gets fucked.”

    Now see, I’ve LEARNED something today.

  4. Aloisius says:

    Now I know if some Korean starts swearing at me to say, “Pickle off!” (in English of course).

  5. pencilbox says:

    Best part is at the very end: “Then it’s a tie. We said one swear each, and we tied. Then you can just walk away.”

    I think that’s such a delightful take. Great video.

    My brother spent a lot of time teaching english in Korea. He told me a story about when he first got there, the students were all showing him the English they knew by swearing at him in English, and he was embarassed and trying to explain that they shouldn’t say things like that casually. Then one of them swore at him in Korean, and the Korean teacher beat the crap out of the student for his impudence. ^.^;;

    As it turns out, Korean teachers are not only allowed but encouraged to beat their students. My brother refrained, but most of the teachers would casually smack their students upside the head throughout classes.

    I think might be the high point of my day….

    F’N EPIC!

    So why shouldn’t pregnant women watch? Because the babies will hear cursing through the womb?

    • knijon says:

      My guess as to the pregnant women disclaimer is that he feels they are easily excitable and/or shouldn’t get too worked up over all the vulgar language he’s about to use.

    • Anonymous says:

      Koreans count the time in the womb as part of the baby’s first year of life. So yes that’s why

        This is why they always win the Little League World Series.

        • adamnvillani says:

          It’s Taiwan, not South Korea, that had the big stretch of winning the LLWS. South Korea only won twice, in 1984 and 1985. Taiwan won 17 times between 1969 and 1996, but they haven’t won since, though last year they were runners-up.

    What a smooth operator. I like his take on making a “swearing tie” and then walking away to to negate conflict.

    ㅋㅋㅋ 대박.

  12. Gilbert Wham says:

    ‘Shitbat’ is my new favourite cuss-word. Thanks, Korea!

    • The Mudshark says:

      So how do you say “shitbat” in Korean? Does he say it in the Video? If so, I missed it.

      Also, I like listening to him. I wish he would do Korean classes for foreigners.

      • Xopher says:

        It’s apparently a Korean swear word. He says it only in Korean. You have to watch the subtitles to see it.

        • orangefoodie says:

          It’s actually pronounced “ssibal,” a contraction of “ssip hal” which means literally “that which is to be fucked.”

    • Anonymous says:

      it’s shibal. with an l….

  13. millrick says:

    any guesses as to what part two will entail?

  14. slgalt says:

    Jolla pickled! He tells children and pregnant women to not watch. lulz.

  15. marco antonio says:

    I do love his hat. Makes him totally streetsmart.

    Maybe he’s so jolla pickled that pregnant women start contracting just by listening to him, that’s how hardcore he is!!

  16. Ernunnos says:

    I actually found this really engaging. He’s a good teacher.

  17. Xopher says:

    He’s definitely jolla pickled. I love this. Also the misspellings. “Son of of bitch” and “fuking.”

    Not that I can spell in Korean.

    I love his jolla lavalier microphone the size of a pickle.

  20. Glowbee says:

    Me being a linguistics student who’s been studying Korean lately, oh! I was tickled pink to see this pickled-green post, and it was so interesting to hear his discussion of the vocabulary! And there were so many parts of the screen to look at at once.

    I love the xenophobic undertones in his rationale for learning swear words: the evil foreign men will stealthily swear at our pure women!

  22. Chupacabara says:

    Looks like he has a Trojan Pocket Rocket attached to his tie.

    Guys, you can just think the pregnant women + children disclaimer as an NSFW warning equivalent in Korea.

  26. strangefriend says:

    I’m going to have to disagree. This video SUCKS because the teacher mistakes the word ‘sucks’ for ‘sick.’

  27. Felton says:

    I love the pickled way he says WTF.

  28. blueelm says:

    This is so cool. It makes me want to learn Korean too. His calm, explanatory, face while saying “you fucking bitch” is so strangely painful and funny to me!

    There’s a textbook to go with this sort of lecture.

    This is the guy to hire to translate those fucking directions that come with Korean electronics.

    Well done. I agree with this teacher. People need to learn the words that English schools will not teach them. It helps understand context, humor and the way to use/not use these words.

    I’d like to see him teach this:

    “Stu-fucking-pendous. Well fuck fucking around with the fucker and get your ass over here. We fucking have to get one of these fuckers working before
    the remfing motherfuckers get all over my fucking ass and I have to chew you a new one, you useless fucks.”

      That’s tough Mannie. But then, you’ll probably never master Kung Fu, right? Some things you just get born to.
