Lil’ Oppa: Do you know aegyo?
On the phone last night, Lil’ Oppa asked me if I know “aegyo…being cute?” That one question led to 30 solid minutes of pure FAIL! lol
Me: I know what aegyo is… like “buing, buing.”
Lil Oppa: Not that! So awkward.(- Long funny talk about how un-cute “buing, buing” sounds.)
Me: Laughing until I accidentally hang up.
++++++ Calls him Back+++
Me: Buing, Buing! (in leu of hello)
Lil Oppa: Honey, I think you’ve missed some medication.
Me: Laughing hysterically
Lil Oppa: Baby, are you drunk (he knows I’m not)…so weird.
Me: I’m sorry.( Explains that I’ve never done aegyo and why its so hard. The jist of which is that I’m American. I’m grown. I’m not cute.) Buing, buing just makes me laugh. ::battery falls out of phone::
+++ Calls Back+++
Lil Oppa: Buing, Buing!
Me: Laughs hystericalling
Lil Oppa: (Continues) Buing, Buing, Buing!
Me: Dead laughter.
Lil Oppa: Buing, Bu—(stranger looks at him like “wtf?!?” so he stops.)
Me: Do you want to hear my best attempt at aegyo?( ::clears throat:: then begins to laugh, because I know I am about to sound like Sooyoung from Girls Generation.)
Lil’ Oppa: It is time for your medicine…
Me: Oppa~ [starts saying the very first Korean phrase that comes to mind]
Lil Oppa- Ummm….Nice try hun.
He spends the next 10minutes trying to teach me how to do aegyo. He was patient, and even offered a couple of “better… I like that” when continued with my special needs level aegyo.
Long story short, like most women, my aegyo has a proven to have a solid effect on him. Threatening to use it will make him stop doing whatever he is doing, just to avoid my horrible “aegyo.”
Well that’s all for now. May the *Buing! Buing!* be with you!
Lil Oppa- Nice try hun.
