Korean Engrish

Ugh, I hate it when people spend lot of money on producing something with typos or horrible English. I see this in China a lot... if you're going to print expensive full-color ads, why not spend a couple more dollars/RMB to check the English? There's got to be lots of underemployed American laowais in China.

This is screen-cap from the Bad Girls MV by Lee Hyori. She recently formed a entertainment company (b2m) to produce her own album and also manage K-pop artists like SPICA.

There are lots of mistakes but the worst is the alphabet:
A B C D E F G H I G K L M L O P Q R S T U V W X _ _

I'm sure I'll find a bunch of errors if I checked the math...

yeah but in typical asian fashion; they got the math right.

that teacher with the weird orange leather jacket is awfully close behind the student teaching penmanship.

just landed in HKG. called again. they same guy at CX counter was making announcements. you would think that after all these years; his Engrish would improve. i must have seen him over 50 times.
