K-POP music is really popular these days in Taiwan.  

Most of the females in Taiwan have a crush into Korean drama, music and even make-up.

現今在台灣,韓國流行音樂非常盛行

台灣大部分的女性對於韓劇、韓國音樂,甚至是化妝品都有著一股退不去的熱潮

 

We can say that no one doesn't know a Korean female group called Twice, I can even hear a foreign maid sing “shy! Shy! Shy! ” to a little girl when she is pushing a wheelchair for an old man in a park. 

Especially the girl, Tzuyu, who is from Taiwan is even more popular than other members in the group.

我們甚至可以說沒有人不知道這個韓國女子團體Twice

在公園裡甚至還可聽見一位外傭推著老人家的輪椅,一邊對著一旁的小女孩唱「Shy! Shy! Shy!」

尤其是其中來自於台灣的子瑜更是無人不曉,比其他的團員更為火紅

 

Recently they released their new song, TT. 

Most of their fans love the song and also think the Halloween style is very novelty, but that cannot stand for all of the listeners.

最近他們發行了最新的單曲TT

而大部分的粉絲都喜愛這首歌,那是那並不能代表所有聽眾的心情。

 

For Korean and Taiwanese, most of the people know that TT means a crying face, but for some people from other countries may not think like that. 

For Thai, the sound of TT is very similar with male genitals in their language. 

And for English, the sound also let people think of another rude word that represents breast easily. 

So now there are a lot of people on the internet discussing about the song is quite nasty and rude.

對韓國人及台灣人而言,大部分的人都能夠了解TT指的就是「哭臉」,但是對於其他國家的人來說就不是這麼認為了

以泰文來說,TT的發音跟泰文當中男性的生殖器發音非常相像

而在英語國家中,TT也有著跟胸部很相近的諧音問題

因此現在在網路上,有許多人談論著這是一首非常低俗且無理的歌曲
 

From this, we can realize that cultures do matter. The meaning of a thing, a word, a gesture or a behavior can change along with cultures.

When you pay a visit in other countries, remember to do some research about their cultures in case to break their custom without awareness.

由此我們可以理解,文化真的非常的重要。不論是一個事物、一個字、一個動作或著一個行為,它們的涵義都會隨著文化改變

未來當你造訪其他的國家時,一定要記得做好事前的準備,了解當地的文化,以免在不知不覺當中冒犯了他們的文化及習俗

 

Now let’s enjoy Twice new song, TT.

那麼就讓我們來欣賞一下Twice的新歌TT吧!
