Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Kyejin: If you are invited to a Korean friend's place, be sure not to walk in empty-handed. It does not have to be fancy or expensive, but be sure to bring a small gift. It’s a way of saying “thanks for inviting me over.”

Hey Listeners! Can you tell us about your plans in Korean?

Hi Nico,


The first phrase is asking whether the listener has time on Friday night.


보러 가요=

~러 가요=suggestive phrase (suggesting to go do something, in this case, to see something).


Cheers,

Also, can someone break down the phrase for "go to see"?

Would the first phrase translate more directly to "do you have time friday night"? Is that the same as saying if they have plans, or is that actually asking if they are free to make plans for that night?

Hi 사스키아~,


Thank you for posting. If you are asking regarding gifts you present to someone on a date, flowers or chocolate would be nice. 😄 Koreans like drinking with each other, but would not gift alcohol to someone on a date unless they knew each other pretty well.

Hello c:


What would be an acceptable gift? Chocolate, flowers or even alcohol?

Or something completely different?



Thank you in advance

Its very interesting about the bringing of a small gift just for a regular invite from a friend. That is very different from western culture where only on special days this would be done. Conversely, I read somewhere that people do not expect their English teachers on a home stay to give them a gift upon leaving to go back home. This would be deemed quite rude and selfish in the west. ?
