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!!

  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

  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

    ReplyDelete
  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!

  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!

    ReplyDelete
  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

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

    ReplyDelete
  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!
    がんばってくださいAJさん!

  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.

    Sincerely,

    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.

    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

  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

  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

  112. わ!AJ-さんの日本語は上手と思います。
    私も、今、オーストラリアの高校二年生で日本語をべんきょうしています。
    しょうらい、日本に行きたいで、U-Kissと会います。
    ある日、U-Kissと日本語をはなすることがでみあすから、私は、たくさん日本語をべんきょうしなけらばなりますせん。
    Aj-さん、がんばってね!

    I'm pretty sure there are spelling mistakes, but hey, beginner here. Hope you guys come to Australia one day ><

    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!
    AJ FIGHTING! ~

  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. :)

  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!

    ReplyDelete
  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

  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!!
