Hello everyone! I'm trying to get a clearer understanding of this 0:48 second video clip on Facebook: www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1599528930187713
I can grasp the general topic, but my listening skills are very low and I'm having trouble with words like "아람단" - for which I can't find a proper definition anywhere. I'm specifically curious about what exactly Sumin says before Tony mistakenly says Girl Scouts xD
Thank you so much for the help!
Thanks bulabi. If I may ask another question, even if they are the same type of organization, are they all part of one organization or is each separate organizations? I just want to be clear because Sumin talked about both in the video so it was confusing to me ^^;;
PS. You're English is really good ^^
in english, 아람단 is Korea Youth Association(KOYA).
check it this site. http://www.koya.or.kr
and she said she is from 아람단.
I found your old question while just look around this site.
I'm not sure you already understand what 아람단 means in the video clip.
But I think the answers above is a little far from the answer.
You need to know the 80's Korea to understand these situation. ; )
Korea was poor than Thai, Philippine etc. So there are many poor family.
Anyway, at that time there were two association, 아람단 and boys and girl scouts.
As I remember it, teachers handed out the two association applying paper to children at the early of 4th grade semester. And the children choose one of the association.
But, some poor children can not join the association because there are membership fee and they have to buy uniform.
So the child who joined one of the association are very proud of it.
And there are a little tension between two association. Actually the Scouts look down the 아람단.
Because the membership fee of 아람단 is a little cheaper than the Scouts.
And some of the children choose 아람단 by them self because they knew their parents were struggling with the poor. And they told to parents that 아람단 is better than Scouts.
I was one of them. ; )
