Am I the only one who’s noticed how Bori’s speech seems very different from “normal” Korean? Her sentences always come out in a kind of sing-song manner, with the pitch of her voice rising and falling as she speaks.
Personally, I rather like it - but I wonder if there’s some meaning to this? She’s supposed to be a rural island girl, so is this how the country folks speak in Korea?
Yes, you're right about all of that, Mikey. I don't remember where she's supposed to be from specifically, but there are some areas of Korea where the accent is stereotypical. (At the moment, I can only think of Busan, or maybe it's Daegu.) My guess is it's instantly recognizable to Koreans as a "rube" accent, especially with the sing-song cadence and the "shushing" sounds.
Yes, I enjoy her dialect.Idid notice that in "My Father Loves Trouble" they spoke like this.I really like it.It would be nice to explore this further in the Korean culture. And yes I like Bori alot.She is fun!
I love my Korean dramas!DJY has always been my fav!
