Kakao Talk - Korean Chat App.



This is an app. called Kakao Talk which you can chat and call with your friends. To compare, it is similar to WhatsApp, but I find Kakao Talk cooler because it has various of emoticons and you can do many other things. As you watch the first video, you can see some of the emoticons that this app. offers. I know that some of EAS students already has this app. (I don't refer to only Koreans). Even seniors all have Katok (Kakao Talk) in their phone and always talk in a group chat. I'm not sure about spanish, but you can (if you want) download this app. in English version. I really recommend this app, because you can also enjoy many games like "Cookie Run", "Wind Runner", etc. with your Katok account. Also, for people that maybe needs some instructions on how to use this app, second video will tell you basic things. 

Well, you might not like it. However, try it! You will love to use those funny and cute emoticons. 
Thank you for your time to read my blog post. Honestly, I didn't know what to write.

  1. That does look like a really cute, app. I might download it just to see the rest of the cute emotes! Its cool that it has so many features in one, and that vote where to eat feature seems really cool! Cookie run sounds cute, and it will be fun to do these things all in one app.

  2. Personally, I don't think I'd ever get the app. I do, however, think it looks pretty cool! Like Kelly said, it is really impressive that it has so many features in one app. And it's all for free! Especially the calling part--I think that is nice because generally you have to worry about fees.

  3. As a user of Kakao Talk, I have to say that it is amazing! I really like this app and I love all the emoticons, they are so cute and fun to use! One of the best things that it offers are the free calls. Its true that you can talk as long as you desire, it has an application in which you can change the pitch of your voice, and it's free!! I really like Kakao Talk and I recommend it.

  4. I also don't think I would ever get this app, like Lacey said, but I do think that it's awesome that you can have group calls for free. That's really cool! I also don't have WhatsApp so I don't really have anything to compare it to. :)

  5. Cool! The KAKAO TALK messenger is not new for me because I already knew about it before, and I kind of use it a lot.

  6. I have seen Hanna use this app a lot. It looks really cool, and you can add so many icons, but personally, I am just going to stick to Whatsapp.

  7. I do not have this app and I have never used it before, but I have seen a few people use it. It seems like a nice and useful app that may be a good fit for many people. Also, many of the app's functions, such as the group talk may be useful for long-distance conference-style calls, for example. Finally, they say the app is free and it's true, but you have to pay for the Wi-Fi signal or your cellular data service so in the end, it's pure marketing... Just remember, though, FREE TALK KAKAO TALK! :P

  9. Hahaha I remember the first time I used the app, I didn't know what the heck I was doing. In all honesty, it's hard to use at first but you get the hang of it eventually. I do have to mention the emoticons, though. They are so fun to use they just have a variety of emojis it's awesome. There's this emoticon that's in the bathtub, and there's another one flipping a table because he's so mad. That's my favorite one to be honest haha it's so accurate! Great post Kye Ri!

  10. I have this app, and it has made my life better as a whole. Now, I have the ability to talk to koreans whenever I want, and that is basically an inalienable human right. At first I was scared that the app was an attempt by the Koreans to control the rest of the world, but now I know that they are the master race. All hail Koreans.

  12. I LOVE KAKAO TALK!!!! It's much better than Whatsapp because you can do more stuff faster. Also, there's so many emojis!!!! I really like them because they are not just the normal yellow, circled faces that are used. I like Kakao Talk because it makes me feel Korean! :) Korean stuff is awesome!
