Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh 2NE1 (I also learned this in college, great influence eh, Sintang Paaralan?)
My idea of Korea is limited by these words.

In every circle of people I know; church mates to workmates, college colleagues, virtual friends and even the ahjummas in the office where I had my OJT, there is always someone addicted to Korean trend and I always steer away from them once they start talking about actors and idols like they know them personally.
