Korean Booster Pack #1

TLD Booster Packs
Collections of 10 essential / useful / fun links for your L2!





  • Naver is the Korean internet. Learn it, love it.
  • The Korean term for “Let’s Play” is 실황 플레이 in case you want to look for more videos on your own.
  • AsiaTorrents is invite-only, and I don’t have any invites, sorry. I got in during an open registration period, so check in every now and then to see if you can register without an invitation (I’ll definitely add a post if I notice it’s open)
  • AM-Addiction used to be a go-to for direct downloads of movies & TV, but it got destroyed when Megaupload got taken down. Don’t follow dead leads to that site.

Wow, thank you for the great Korean booster pack! Here are a few I found along the way:

무한도전 (Infinity Challenge), every episode: / This is a really funny and famous TV show where every week the group is given a different challenge. Things rarely go as planned.

Anno’s treasure chest: / This guy put together a lot of sentence cards and audio cards from the TTMIK series. There are some holes but it’s definitely a goldmine

YTN News Channel: / This news channel has transcripts for their videos

Oh man, I love 무한도전, almost as much as I love Running Man. And I’ve seen Anno’s site before (he used to comment on the Korean in Kuwait blog), I’ll include it in the next booster pack, thanks for the reminder. And YTN, that’s awesome, never knew about that one. I guess all three of these will go in the next pack!

These seem great, waiting for the Spanish and German booster packs.

If you need, I could put an Italian booster pack together.

Hi there Matt! Thx for the suggestions! How’s your Korean studies?

Btw, I’ve been reading about the “TV Method”, but it looks like most people don’t approach it from the easier material to harder, which I think should be the optimal way of doing it, although not the funniest, so I went to download some Korean videos of Dora the Explorapocalypse (all I could find actually) and I’m thinking about looking for every downloadable stuff for kids on these Korean torrent sites on my free time that I’m already not spending watching Dora :P.

Here’s where I got Dora’s videos:

You could also search on Play Store (and probably on the equivalent for Apple users) for “아이”, “아기” or “어린이”, coupled or not with “동화”. There are some free apps with audio stories for kids with images and stuff. Some of them also show the subtitles, but not all of them.

There’s also an app called “All of Kcomics”, for those already interest in reading. It kind of compiles most of the sources of manhwas, including Naver WebToon and Daum Webtoon.

Also, for anime (or even occidental cartoons, even though I haven’t tried it yet) lovers, you could try finding the name of the anime in Korean and putting something like 우리말 더빙 or 한국말 더빙 together with it in google’s search. That’s how I found this:

Dragon Ball dubbed in Korean! 아싸!
