possibly. but you never know unless you try.

I don't think anyone can give a real answer because no one here knows your bf's family. The best answer I can think of is: you have a leg up over girls who aren't korean by birth.

It's simple, all you have to do is throw the letter away and pretend like you never got it. That's what I always do. Don't worry if their letters start sounding threatening (they threaten with a fine and other stuff), as long as they can't prove that you read the letter, they can't touch you.

It really depends on where you start. If you start from Japanese, learning Chinese isn't too hard and vice versa. I learnt Chinese first and then Japanese. To me, learning Japanese is much less painless than learning Chinese, even with onyomi / kunyomi. Kunyomi is easier to me because it sounds ver...

Try watching Chinese ancient series from time to time and see what I means. Try this one for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chi...
