Hand in Hand & Abnormal Summit

Abnormal Summit 비정상회담 is a television program in South Korea. The show features a panel of eleven non-Korean men, living in Korea, who debate on various topics and “Korean culture, through the eyes of a foreigner.”

Funny and thought provoking, I add this show to my watch list.

See the lyrics for the song “Hand in Hand” below.

Tutor is encouraging me to watch more Korean TV.  It is surprisingly difficult for me to get back into Korean drama.  My brain just gets stuck on trying to translate, so I don’t enjoy the show and get tired quickly.  An hour a day suddenly seems like a big goal.  My comprehension of words has improved, but it is like getting static so you can only hear 20% … I only get the short simple things, not enough to follow what is going on.  My brain is arguing with the subtitles, about what words mean at times.  It is like being constantly derailed in my thoughts.  I take too long to hear-understand-decipher the sentence.  I am listening for pronunciation, actively reminding myself, and repeating out loud.  Phew!

Hand in Hand is the song that the participants in Abnormal Summit sing.


Hand in Hand 손에 손잡고 Offical Song Olympic 1988 by Koreana

See the fire in the sky
We feel the beating of our hearts together
This is our time to rise above
We know the chance is here to live forever
For all time

Hand in Hand we stand
All across the land
We can make this world 
A better place in which to live

Hand in Hand we can
Start to understand
Breaking down the walls
That come between us for all time
Arirang

Everytime we give it all
We feel the flame eternally inside us
Lift our hands up to the sky
The morning calm helps us to live in harmony
For all time

Hand in hand we stand
All across the land
We can make this world 
A better place in which to live

Hand in Hand we can
Start to understand
Breaking down the walls
That come between us for all time
Arirang

Hand in hand we stand
All across the land
We can make this world 
A better place in which to live

Hand in Hand we can
Start to understand
Breaking down the walls
That come between us for all time

Hand in hand (Breaking down the walls between us)
Hand in Hand (Breaking down the walls)

Korean Lyrics 가사

하늘 높이 
솟는 불 

우리들 가슴 
고동치게 하네

이제 모두 
다 일어나 

영원히 함께 
살아가야 할 길 

나서자

손에 손잡고 
벽을 넘어서 

우리 사는 세상 더욱 
살기 좋도록

손에 손잡고 
벽을 넘어서 

서로 서로 사랑하는 
한 마음 되자

손잡고
어디서나 
언제나 

우리의 가슴 
불타게 하자

하늘 향해 
팔 벌려 

고요한 아침 
밝혀주는 평화 

누리자

손에 손잡고 
벽을 넘어서 

우리 사는 세상 더욱 
살기 좋도록

손에 손잡고 
벽을 넘어서 

서로 서로 사랑하는 
한마음 되자

손잡고

손에 손잡고 
벽을 넘어서 

우리 사는 세상 더욱 
살기 좋도록

손에 손잡고 
벽을 넘어서 

서로 서로 사랑하는 
한마음 되자

손잡고
(서로 서로 사랑하는 
한마음 되자)

손에 손
손잡고

    I’ve never really been into Korean dramas so I don’t really know how to watch TV for learning Korean either lol;;;

    Have you considered watching documentaries or travel programs? They tend to speak much slower and more clearly than in variety shows, plus what is on the screen matches pretty well with what they are saying so you can use a lot of context clues. I’m not sure if there are subtitles online but I have been watching 세계 테마 기행 and 걸어서 세계속으로 when I catch it on TV.

    Good luck!
