POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Tim: Hmm... 냉면, 떡볶이, 순대... Yummy! I (강조) "like" 순대 a lot!
Debbie: (화나고 역겨운 목소리로 voice of anger and disgust) Gross!
Tim: I'm sorry, Debbie, but I can't help myself whenever I imagine 순대!
Debbie: Tim, I think we should give our listeners some info about 냉면, 떡뽁이 and 순대. Don't you think?
Tim: Yes! Especially about 순대!
Debbie: (마지못해서 being compelling) You can tell the listeners about 순대...
Tim: (신난 목소리로)Okay! Let's talk about 떡볶이 first.
Debbie: 떡볶이 is "spicy rice cakes". It's quite spicy, so have water with you always when you decide to try 떡볶이.
Tim: Who (강조) "likes" 떡볶이, Debbie?
Debbie: Many young Korean children and teenagers love to eat 떡볶이 "spicy rice cakes".
Tim: I also "like" to eat 떡볶이! Next, let's talk about 냉면...
Debbie: 냉면 is (강조) "a cold Korean noodle dish" and is usually in a tangy broth with a slice of a pear, a boiled egg, and beef.
Tim: When do we usually eat 냉면?
Debbie: It's (강조) "a cold Korean noodle dish" so Korean people often have 냉면 on a (강조) hot summer day!
Tim: Yes! Last, we have... 순대! 빰빠라 빰!
Debbie: Oh boy, Tim! 순대 is blood sausage. It's "intestines stuffed with noodles". Yes, listeners, 순대 is made from (강조) the intestines of pigs! I don't think 순대 looks appetizing at all.
Tim: I think 순대 looks (강조) so delicious and it tastes fantastic! Debbie, we have photos of them, right?
Debbie: Yes. We do. We have photos of all of three on our Facebook page. Visit KoreanClass101.com's Facebook page and click on (강조) "photos". Then click on (강조) "food in Korea".
Tim: Yes! You will be able to witness a (강조) beautiful picture of 순대!
Debbie: I feel nauseous. Let's move on to the vocab before I get sick.

VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Debbie: Let's have a closer look at the usuage for some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
Debbie: The first word is...?
Tim: 무.엇 - 무엇.
Debbie: Meaning "what". 무엇 "what" is one of the "interrogative pronouns". But Tim? I've often heard of the shortened form of 무엇. Can you say it for us?
Tim: Sure! 무엇 becomes 뭐. Both 무엇 and 뭐 mean "what". However, use 뭐 in informal Korean. Listeners, please repeat after me, "무엇[pause]뭐[pause]
Tim: Can you give us an example?
Debbie: Hmm... how about... "what is this?"
Tim: "this" 이것은, "what" 무엇, "is?" 입니까? So all together...
Debbie: "What is this?" is...
Tim: Please repeat after me. 이것은 무엇 입니까?
[pause]
Tim: or 이것은 뭐 입니까?
[pause]
Debbie: Great! Next we have...
Tim: 좋.아 - 좋아 and 싫.어 - 싫어.
Debbie: Korean people often use those two words - 좋아 "like" and 싫어 "hate". 좋아 and 싫어 are informal. We will talk about them more later on in the lesson focus. For now, let's simply try to pronounce them.
Tim: Please repeat after me. "like" 좋아
[pause]
Tim: and "hate" 싫어
[pause]
Debbie: Great! Last, we have...
Tim: 떡.볶.이 - 떡볶이 and 순.대 - 순대.
Debbie: We've already talked about them.
Tim: Yes. 떡볶이 is spicy rice cakes and...
Debbie: 순대 is blood sausages. 떡볶이 and 순대 are very popular snacks in Korea. Let's simply try to pronounce the words.
Tim: Listeners, please repeat after me. 떡볶이
[pause]
Tim: 순대
[pause]
Debbie: Great! Now let's move on to the grammar point!

Lesson focus

Debbie: The focus of this lesson is how to use 좋아 "like", 안좋아 "don't like", and 싫어 "hate".
Tim: Before further explanation, remember this - 좋아, 안좋아 and 싫어 are (강조) "informal" speech.
Debbie: Okay! Let's start from 좋아 (jo-a) like (casual informal) and to add some degree of politeness, attach 요 (yo) at the end.
Tim: 좋아 + 요 = 좋아요 (casual formal) Please repeat after me. 좋아요
[pause]
Debbie: Listeners, we've also learned about 좋아, 좋아 "good, good" in Absolute Beginner Season 2 Lesson 7. Remember?
Tim: Yes. in lesson 7, 좋아 was an adjective; however, in this lesson, 좋아 is a verb. Please don't get those confused!
Debbie: Can you tell us how we make a sentence using 좋아?
Tim: Okay. The formation is... 나는 "I" + Noun + particles (이/가) + 좋아 (jo-a) "I like (noun)". Now we need more examples...
Debbie: Okay... how about... "I like 떡볶이"?
Tim: Good one! 난 "I" + 떡볶이(강조) "가" + 좋아 "like", so all together,
Debbie: "I like 떡볶이" is...?
Tim: Please repeat after me. Informal Version. 난 떡볶이가 좋아.
[pause]
Tim: or Formal Version. 나는 떡볶이가 좋아요.
[pause]
Debbie: Wonderful! Now we have 안 좋아 "don't like".
Tim: Listeners, please repeat after me. 안 좋아
[pause]
Debbie: Let's try it with a sample sentence. How about "I don't like 떡볶이"?
Tim: 난 "I" + 떡볶이"가" + 안 좋아 "don't like" so all together...
Debbie: "I don't like 떡볶이" is...?
Tim: Please repeat after me. Informal Version. 난 떡볶이가 안 좋아.
[pause]
Tim: or Formal Version.나는 떡볶이가 안 좋아요.
[pause]
Debbie: This time...How about "I hate 순대"?
Tim: 난 "I" + 순대"가" + 싫어 "hate". so all together,
Debbie: "I hate 순대" is...?
Tim: Please repeat after me. Informal Version. 난 순대가 싫어.
[pause]
Tim: or Formal Version.나는 순대가 싫어요.
[pause]
Debbie: Fantastic! That's all for this lesson. If you want to see the pictures of 냉면, 순대, 떡볶이, please visit KoreanClass101.com's Facebook page.
Tim: Yes. You will see a beautiful picture of "순대"!
Debbie: Tim! It's ugly!
Tim: 여러분 다음시간까지 안녕~~!

Hi Noella,


Thanks for posting. The difference is that one is a conjugation of a noun, and the other a verb.

좋아 comes from 좋다(noun)

좋아해 comes from 좋아하다(verb)


Hope this helped.

Sincerely,

Lyn

Hi Nate,


Thanks for posting. In the case of the sentence 무엇이 좋아, you're asking what a person likes (so it cannot be a verb that you like, but a noun), so you use 좋아 instead of 좋아해.

If it were the object of a sentence, asking what a person likes to 'do' (verb), you could use 좋아해 --->무엇을 좋아해?

Hope this makes sense.


Cheers,

Lyn

Hi Lyn, thanks for the answer!

If that’s the case, then why do we use 좋아 as ‘like’ sometimes?, like in, “무엇이 좋아,” and in, “ 라면이 좋아!”

Hi Nate,


Thanks for posting. First of all, the base form and meaning are different:


좋아요-->좋다 (good, fine)

좋아해요-->좋아하다 (like)


So 좋아요 would be 'it's good', whereas 좋아해요 would mean '(I) like it'.


Hope this helped!

Best,

Lyn

Hey guys! So, I was reading through the Grammar Points, and I was wondering: is there any difference between 좋아요 and 좋아해요?, or do they mean the same thing? Thanks!

Hi Gwen,


Thanks for posting. Here tteokbokki is the subject of the sentence, which is why the subject marking particle 'ga' was used.

Please check out our lessons on particles:

I want to ask about "나는 떡볶이가 좋아요." Why do we use 가 herr? Is tokpokki an object? Isn't it 떡볶이 + reul ?thanks

Hi 칼,


Thanks for posting. To go into detail, 을/를 are object marking particles and are attached to the object of a sentence. 이/가 are subject marking particles and are attached to the subject of a sentence. And as Korean has a subject + object + verb sentence structure, the object marking particle would be followed by a verb, and the subject marking particle would likely be followed by a noun (object), or if the object is omitted, it could be followed by a verb. Here are some examples:


그녀는 밥을 먹었다. (followed by the verb 'to eat')


누가 청소를 했어요? (who did the cleaning)

영희가 (object omitted if already mentioned previously in another sentence) 했어요. (Younghui(subject) did (verb)).


Hope this made sense.

Cheers,

Lyn
