Why am I learning Japanese?

Why did you choose to study Japanese?
-I chose to study Japanese because I want to communicate with my Japanese fans. Every time when I visited Japan if I had concert, even though I wanted to convey my words and messages, I was not able to convey my messages clearly. Therefore, by learning Japanese, I would like to become a step closer to my Japanese Fans

What are you excited, and what you find difficult after the first 4 weeks of the class?
-I am excited about the fact that I mastered the Hiragana; moreover, I knew nothing about the grammar in Japanese, but I came to know the fundamental level of Japanese grammar after the 4 weeks of the class.
-I can see how the level of Japanese is getting harder as day goes on. I am worried whether I can master Katakana like I did Hiragana. However, learning Japanese is interesting!!


  1. you got fans? so you are a star in Japan?

  20. Hello, Jaeseop!^^ I just wanted to wish you luck with the rest of your studies. Also, I'm taking Japanese for the first time as well, so let's wish each other the best and good luck in mastering the Japanese language! だいすき!

  21. good luck AJ...I know you will make us proud.

  22. It's always difficult to learn another language, but from what you've written it seems like you've progressed more than you would have thought. So proud of you and anyone taking up another language. Good luck and hopefully it'll get easier as you start to learn more.

    Fighting and a LOT of kisses from BRAZIL. Yes, dongsaeng, Brazil! We are here for u always!

  26. I also started studying Japanese a month ago in a university! ^^ Though I had already learned hiraganas, katakanas and some kanjis too by myself before so it was easier to start. But in a way it gets easier after you learn hiragana and katakana! A big obstacle has already been taken! ;)
    Good luck with studying AJ! Let's see how well we progress! haha

  27. We're so proud of you, Jaeseop! Do well in school, good luck, and come back to Kissmes quickly! We miss you like crazy!

  41. you make us so proud! ^^ i wish i could study Japanese too but i have to focus on learning french hehe~ good luck! <3

    greetings from germany again :p

  42. I learned Japanese the first year of uni. I still remember alot. But more speaking than writing XD. I know most hiragana though... I want to learn more... and Chinese and Korean.. but.... so tricky XD

    I'm sure you'll do awesome :DDD

  43. Jaeseop or AJ... well fighting! I really think you're amazing! You are so young and you can take these kind of decision! Your English is so good~! I really think you can speak a good Japanese! All Kiss Me support you and all U-Kiss too, but you know that right? Anyway... I have to practice more my English and I have to learn more Japanese! You are really a great example! I'm proud to be one of your fan!

    Good luck! Fighting!

  44. if you need help with your Japanese i'm here!!!! good luck!!!!!!!!

  45. 日本語を勉強することがむずかしいですが、でもおもしろいですね。がんばってください!(Studying Japanese is difficult. But it's fun, right? Please do your best!) I'm in my third semester at my university. Katakana can be a bit difficult (half my difficulty is making out what the words are in katakana @.@) but Kanji is the real feat! Gear up and get ready for it. They can be very interesting though and make writing or understanding words easier. There is just a lot of them... I'm continuing studying Japanese while also learning Korean, though it's difficult to do at the same time. My university doesn't offer Korean language classes though, so I have to learn by myself or from my Korean friends. Sigh...Let's both do well! ^_- 화이팅!

  46. AJ, you can do it! Hwaiting!! You'll do great! I'm learning Chinese and I memorized the whole Korean alphabet, so I know a couple phrases, but you learn faster than me! ^^ *from a KissMe in Florida, USA*

  47. I study Japanese, I'm from mexico.
    is Korean but is very difficult for Japanese kanji

  48. I think you'll get it right.
    You can do it. Study hard, Jaeseop ♥

  49. Since I've studied japanese too I know what you mean by saying that as days go by, it gets harder and harder. Katakana won't be as easy as the hiragana, I can tell you that LOL. But you'll manage it, I'm sure of it ^^ BTW, get ready for the kanjis and how to use them correctly, maybe it'll be difficult at the beginning but if you study hard you'll manage it too.
    Maybe it's because I already know 6 languages (spanish [I'm spanish], english, portuguese, french, italian and japanese) and I love to learn more and more, but I find it very interesting not only because (in your case) you can talk w/ your fans but also because learning a language means to get to know more about the culture of a country, you know what I mean? (I hope so).
    Well, hope you're doing great there =) Best wishes from Spain!

  50. You are a beautiful man. I love you.

  51. Katakana will come with practice. Maybe you could read Japanese news or magazines? That's how I practice my reading with languages + keeping my foreign music in its original languages.

    P.S. Listen to Cobra Starships' songs You Make Me Feel... and replace Lalalalala Lalalalala with A Ka Sa Ta Na Ha Ma Ya Ra Wa. It fits too well.

  52. 재섭~♡일본어 공부화이팅♡
    당신과 일본어로 회화할 수 있으면 기뻐요^^

  75. I have a question for everyone my friends keep telling me to learn French instead of Japanese’s only because my heritage is Mexican but I’m confused between Japanese and French I want to learn Japanese for the reason that I have always found Asian culture very interesting any advice for me I have this semester to think about it

    1. Well, it depends on you. Do what you think you'll be happy with. Japanese is fun, I really have great time learning it. It's hard to memorize kanji's though. As for French I don't have any idea other than they call 80 as four twenties XD

  76. じぇそぷさん♡
    もう ひらがなを masterしたんですね!♥
    さすが かしこいさんです(>_<)

  84. You got this AJ(: Good luck on learning Japanese!(:

  85. I totally get what you mean about learning in the first few weeks. I've been studying Korean for the past year and a half, but I can still remember how excited I was about learning the basics. Within the first week I had memorized most of Hangul and by the time the first month was up I knew a whole slew of basic phrases and grammar points. ^.^ It was so encouraging to learn so much so fast.
    Good luck on mastering Japanese! If you study hard I'm sure you'll get it down in no time. :3

  86. Fighting AJ ^^, I'm learning Japanese too now...starting with Hiragana cause that one is easy ^^

  87. All the best to you AJ!! ^^ Do well in your studies and remember to always take good care of yourself. We're so proud of you. Hope to see you soon. Always be happy and healthy. We're always waiting patiently for you :)

  88. がんばってAJさん。ブラジルはあいしてユキス。

  89. I love Japanese!! I've studied it for 5 years and it still takes me a while to read katakana...hahahha~ I wish I was at least half fluent, but since I have no one to converse with...I am not good at speaking at all. T__T Good luck and have fun with your studying!! You'll do fine since you'll get many chances in the future to use it in Japan. :D

  90. Good luck with your studies Jaeseop. We love and miss you so much, but we wish you the best always!! Fighting!!

  91. I am glad to hear that you go forward learning Japanese!
    Now you mastered Hiragana, so Katakana is a piece of cake, too!
    It won't be long to master Katakana, we all know you are smart.

    Just 3 months more to see you in Japan.
    I am looking forward to seeing you how improve Japanese(^-^)

    from Kissme Japan.

    1. So, you're actually famous, AJ Kim? I can't imagine that the guy sitting beside me is famous. o/

      Just kidding. I'm your fan, Jaeseop. Keep it up :)

      And imagine your professor reading all the comments. Have to laugh at that.

  92. Im one of your fans in JPN~(*'▽`*)


  93. Good luck with Japanese AJ! I missed you in Stop Girl promotions! :(

    -Aemin, KissMe Singapore

  97. Good luck with your studies! The sentence structures in Japanese and Korean can be quite similar, so remember not to confuse them! I've said "watashi wa joey입니다" many times when I first started learning the language =P

    That said, hope you're enjoying Psychology now, and the statistics and biopsychology are not screwing your neuron's action potential or putting excessive strain on your hippocampus XDXDXD
    Psych is an awesome major and, being in my final year in the course now, I don't regret taking it at all. Ganbatte fighting! =)

    I miss you, and I hope you are doing well in USA, and having fun :)
    I wish you the best of luck as you study Japanese. When ever it feels hard, and you feel like giving up, think about Kiss Me's and the rest of the boys in U-Kiss, I'm sure it will give you strength!

  135. I'm still trying to understand what kind of blog is this, what type of atmosphere you must pass. You have to make posts of what was learned?
    Well, i'm not going to lie, the trully is i'm curious to what you have learned from Japanese.
    Good luck.

  145. hi aj! :) good luck on your japanese studies! :) by the time you finish your japanese course, you will be the japanese guru in ukiss! :)) hahaha.

  148. Hey AJ! All the best in your studies! Hope you are doing well in NY :) will be waiting patiently until the day you are on the same stage with U-KISS again <3 By the way, I'm so excited for the fact that you have a blog now and can't wait for your next blog update ^^ looking forward to it \(^_^)/

  149. Hey AJ!
    I love that you opened a Blogspot :D I learnt Japanese for a few months as well but I stopped and now I've forgotten everything :\
    Anyways, since you're already multi-lingual, I think picking up another language would be more instinctual for you :)
    All the best of luck! We'll be supporting you all the way and waiting for your return ^^ Words can't express how proud we U-Kiss fans are of you ♥


  150. Hi AJ! I don't know if you will ever read my comment, but I just wanna say this to you :)

    You're a really huge inspiration to me.

    You being able to juggle your studies and career at the same time is something I wish I could do. Columbia University probably isn't the easiest university to get into. Yet you did it, despite your busy schedule. Your time management skills must be awesome! You are proof that it is possible to balance everything, even with a whole lot of things going on in your life. You are my role model for time management from now on.

    Your choice to enter university and put your career with U-Kiss on hold mustn't have been an easy decision. I admire your courage and determination to continue with your studies, even though you could have simply continued with your career in K-pop. I truly respect you for your decision.

    When I heard that you are majoring in psychology in Columbia, I was really excited. I aim to enter a psychology course in university after I complete my A Levels two years from now. Learning that you have chosen to major in psychology just makes me want to work even harder to achieve my goal and if possible, apply for a scholarship.

    The fact that you want to learn the Japanese language to communicate with your Japanese fans is really touching as well. I hope that you will be successful in mastering Japanese and maybe proceed to learn even more languages!

    AJ, you're now my motivation to study harder to achieve what I want. I also look to you as an example of how a person can manage his time well. From now on, whenever I find myself being pressed for time, I will remind myself of you, and how you are able to cope with studies even though you have a busy schedule as a K-pop idol.

    I wish you all the best for your studies in Columbia and I hope that you will be safe ^^ Study hard and join U-Kiss again soon~ KissMes all miss you :)

    I apologise for the ridiculously long comment. I really had to say this. :)

    KissMe from Singapore :)

  151. Hey AJ, IDK if you have still check this but just so you know I wish you all the best and hope youre doing great in NY. Although my selfish me wishes you to realize how boring college life is and go back to your fans (god knows sometimes I just wish I were and idol and not to worry about tests and readings anymore). No but really, study hard and take care!

  152. Hi AJ! all the best for you in learning Japanese! :D
    AJ can do it!!!! ^^ Japanese fans must be happy and they're so lucky :D
    btw, nowadays im also learning Japanese a bit so maybe next time when you tweet in Japanese i can understand it also ^^ hehe

  153. annyeong and konnichiwa to you AJ oppa, I'm a KissMe from Malaysia and I miss you a lot!! and please make a comeback soon!

    we'll missing you oppa!!! :)

  165. I just knew you from U-KISS because I like your album in Japan
    I really appreciated your decision to study!
    Really I'm just 15 y.o and I'm try to catch my dream become physiology
    i know it's harder... but you make me believe if idol like you become a serious for this why i'm not?
    So thanks for Inspiration
    and well I started to study Japanese because i like it, although because your song too
    Well... Keep Study Hard because 昨日より今日、今日より明日…( i really Love this phrase)

  166. Dear Jaeseop Kim,

    First off..I just want to say how remarkable you are. You do a lot of things that many of us can only dream about, and yet you're so humble about it. Somehow, that's a trait I wish I could have.

    I had a question, since you have experience with it...which would you say I should do? I am keeping in mind that any final decisions are made on my part. But I just wanted to learn your perspective...which do you think would be easier-- learning Korean or Japanese? I know learning something is never "easy" but speaking from your view point--as someone who knows both languages a fair amount-- I was wondering if there are any similarities that you see between the two languages, such as grammar, sentence structure, etc.? If it helps or not you could take into account I learned Japanese by myself a few years ago, and I memorized all of my Hiragana too!

    Anyways...I'm not even sure if you'll see this...and I'm extremely sorry for this long comment! I hope your first semester at college is going well, and that you're adjusting to American customs ok. My first semester is going well..let's finish our first semesters strong, ok Oppa? FIGHTING!!

    1. "First off..I just want to say how remarkable you are. You do a lot of things that many of us can only dream about, and yet you're so humble about it. Somehow, that's a trait I wish I could have. " <--- damn I love these words...?!!!

  167. Thank you AJ Oppa! It's very sweet of you to do this for us fans!
    I'm sure you will pick up Japanese fast since the grammar is almost the same as Korean and Oppa you are a smart person :)
    Good luck on your study and hope that one day I can get to see you in Tokyo.

  168. That's really so nice from you ;) study hard!!FIGHTING!!:D

  169. WAHH so you're studying Japanese? Good luck Jaeseop Kim!
    Maybe, you can come back to UKiss and compose a Japanese song after this. I miss you so bad AJ. Come back soon. :) lotsa love from Malaysia <3

  170. While you study Japanese, I'm studying Korean so I can understand you better. Let's do our best!

  171. You already fluent in Japanese AJ Oppa.. ^^ Why you need to study it again...??
    Is this one of your assignment... ^_<
    By the way.. Hope you got a higher pointer in your last term..

    P.s: I'm big fan of you..
