TTMIK30D-3: Adjectives!

Ha! I'm so happy to learn Korean adjectives (TTMIK level 3 lesson 13). It feels like growing a bigger branch on my Korean learning tree. ㅋㅋ

Noun Modifier

After listening to the podcast, as I remembered that I have learned this adjective form in Integrated Korean Beginning 2, I re-checked the book and found on chapter 9: The noun-modifying form [Adj-(으)ㄴ + N]. Then I was lost for a couple of second on why they gave such title. I almost forgot what makes an adjective an adjective.

noun1.Grammar any member of a class of words that in many languages are distinguished in form, as partly in English byhaving comparative and superlative endings, or by functioning as modifiers of nouns, as good, wise, perfect.
  [aj-ik-tiv]  Show IPA (source)

으? 우?

Hyunwoo mentioned on the podcast Seoul people (represented by Kyeong-eun) habit to pronounce 으 as 우. I'm glad that they bring this up. I was wondering about this pronunciation style since watching the international cover of Beautiful Restriction, check out the video at 01:13. Clearly she's not a native Korean but I thought she might pick up the pronunciation from the singer, or she simply mispronounced it, or it's my ears that really don't  listen well.  ㅎㅎ

유재석이 착한 남자예요! ㅋㅋ
