Are there any Koreans here?

I am proud to be able to say I have now mastered basic Korean, I can order food, I can order drinks, (get drunk, throw up, and) I can ask my way back to the hotel. And this all in three (!!!) different politeness levels: The ones above me, the ones on my own level, and the ones under me.

The above means hello, but in a sort of alternative romanized spelling. It is for the ones on my 'equal' level. Mmmm.

Last time I was in a restaurant and the waitress was called 'So Young'. She was 17 or so. She talked about getting in to university. May-be she has a sister, but I am not Ann.

This is a reference to one of the best sit-comms ever, "Arrested Development". Somehow, a character 'adopts' a Korean child, who (allegedly) doesn't speak English. He he keeps saying "annyong", so they assume that is his name.

They keep talking ABOUT him, and he keeps saying 'hello' back to them...hence the above line.

I do not think Arrested Development was ever broadcasted here, I'll try to look it up on internet.

But all Americans now know that 'an nyòng' means hello?

No, just the cool kids. ;) Even though Arrested Development is one of the best television comedies ever, I'm not sure it was particularly popular.
