Big Bang – Let’s not fall in love (우리 사랑하지 말아요)
Big Bang are massive in Korea and all over the world right now so it’s worth listening to some of their music, whether you’re a fan or not, just to be in tune with what’s popular. It can give you something to talk about or simply give you a nice feeling when you recognize the song playing in the background in Korean dramas or at the supermarket.
I still remember surprising a Chinese friend by beginning to sing along with a Korean song that came on in the shopping centre in China!
I chose this song because it’s a lot slower than many of Big Bang’s other songs that are popular right now and it is therefore easier to pick out some vocabulary. It also has words and phrases that you might use in other contexts
(Unlike some phrases I have learned from their other songs…lol)
Listen to the song below and try to read along with the subtitles in hangeul, romanized Korean or English.

What do you think? Were you able to hear any of the words in the song?
Please let me know if you spot any mistakes. Thank you!
