My Favorite

I started becoming interested in South Korea three years ago, after a friend suggested watching dramas while I was recovering from my first surgery for breast cancer. I have always loved languages, culture, and travel, but have never even considered Korea or Korean. While I appreciate some structure, Ari Lee’s podcast manages to blend an established format with unexpected topics. In each episode I get to learn a little bit about South Korea, a little bit about South Koreans and the host, and a little language. The podcasts aren’t so lengthy that my mind wanders, and The Legit Korean leaves me smiling by the end. I can find how to introduce myself anywhere, but who else is going to teach us how to curse in the target language? Ari Lee, you are the real MVP! 멋있어요!

Great podcast Ari Lee

I really love this podcast. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s still on.
You’re my Korean best friend in my head!😃

Interesting and informative!

I love this podcast! It’s so cool to hear new phrases and snippets about Korean culture mixed together. Ari Lee is a great teacher, and her pronunciation steps make it really easy to follow along.
