Learn Korean with Blackpink – Kill this Love
~ 같은 ~
Yesterday we went to KTV and watched Kill the Love. I can’t sing no Kpop idol tunes. No swag in the rap. Cannot hit the high notes. But I can explain Korean grammar in the lyrics. So I’ve been thinking the first two lines.
천사 같은 “hi“
끝엔 악마 같은 “bye“
“Noun 2 같은 Noun 1” is quite an easy grammar to pick up. Essentially you are describing Noun 1. And you liken Noun 1 to Noun 2. To make it easier, the noun which is being described is underlined.
Noun 2 같은 Noun 1 = Noun 1 like Noun 2.
천사 같은 “hi” = “Hi” like an angel
천사 같은 너 = You who is like angel
너 같은 천사 = Angel like you
천사 같은 친구 = Friend who is like an angel
친구 같은 천사 = An angel who is like a friend
천사 같은 첸 = Chen who is like an angel
So what does second line in the song mean?
악마 같은 “bye” = ________ like ____________
