Do you like singing? Well, I do! I’m not a good singer but I love to sing. It’s my way of relieving stress, expressing unspoken words and emotions. LOL. Singing in public is one of the things that a lot of Koreans don’t like doing. So they sing their hearts out in the noraebang.
Noraebang (노래방) literally means ‘song room’. Norae (노래)is the Korean term for ‘song’. And bang (방) is the term for ‘room’. There are also other alternative terms like Norae yeonseupjang (노래연습장) and Norae yeonseupshil (노래연습실). They all mean the same. ^_^
