The Girls redesigns! I did this one in about 2 weeks because I had more motivation. The outfits they are in are as if they were South Korean.
Each full body took me only a few minutes. Dresses and skirts are much easier to draw than shirts and pants. However, I got incredibly lazy and felt pressed for time, so I rushed these a lot. Their uniforms and tied up hair is still protocol and will be used the most.
Sinuiju is the most “structured” dancer since she does it a sport. Nampho does color guard which is a little more free form. Rason has taken a little of acrobats and rhythmic gymnastics having the freest form.
Seoul is really the only dancer for the boys. Having taken different forms such as hip hop, modern, and more.
(I haven’t had the time to really draw everything out)
Seoul dialect is considered the standard dialect for both North and South Korea. For South Korea the Modern variation of the Seoul dialect is the standard. In North Korea the Munhwaŏ dialect of Seoul is the standard.
There are 9 regional dialects: Seoul, Gyeongsang, Jeolla, Chungcheong, Gangwon, Hwanghae, Pyongan, Hamgyong, and Jeju.
Gyeongsang dialect is very tonal and depending on where you are, the dialect sounds different. Even between Busan and Daegu there is a difference and the cities are only 100 kilometers away.
Jeolla dialect is best known for it’s different verb endings. Taking common endings and changing them. As well as only pronouncing the second vowel in a diphthong.
Chungcheong dialect is a combination of Seoul and Jeolla. The southern part of Chungcheong is closer to Jeolla and northern is closer to Seoul. Known for slow enunciation and unique jargon.
Gangwon dialect is Yeongseo and Yeongdong dialects. Both are spoken in the region. Yeongseo spoken on the east side while Yeongdong is spoken on the west side of the Taebaek mountains.
Hwanghae dialect is typically included with the central dialects, however does not fit in comfortably.
Pyongan dialect is thought to be North Korea’s standard, however it is not. Many vowel sounds are dropped out and replaced with the 8 that are used. As well as certain consonants being used more than others.
Hamgyong dialect is the most divergent dialect. Containing intonation, vocabulary, and grammatical differences that distinguish it from the standard Korean of the north or south. A specific difference is in kinship. Words such as father, mother, etc. are different from the standards.
Jeju dialect is so different, it is considered it’s own language. However, it has become a critically endangered language.
If you watch High Kick 3 episode 73 (yes the whole thing) a great example of the Gyeongsang and Seoul satoori difference are shown. Seung Yoon speaks with a heavy Busan dialect and is forced to start speaking with the Seoul dialect. “Reply 1997” is also a great drama that takes place in Busan.
"Reply 1994" has the most dialects used. In this short clip the 5 main South Korean mainland dialects are used.
For more information, you can do a google search or go to different wiki pages. Trust me, they are chock full of information.
