INTRODUCTION
Seol: 안녕하세요. 윤설입니다.
Hyunwoo: 안녕하세요. 선현우입니다.
Keith: Keith here. First Day.
Seol: First day of what?
Keith:Of your life. Every day is the first day of your life.
Hyunwoo: Every day is the first day of the rest of your life.
Keith: Wow!
Seol: Wow!
Keith: 맞아요. 한국말로 그런 표현이 없어요?
Hyunwoo: 한국어로는 잘 모르겠어요.
Keith: 음...그거 아주 좋은 표현인데.
Hyunwoo: 음...’하루하루를 새롭게 살아라.’ 이렇게 말할 수 있겠죠?
Keith: 하루하루를
Hyunwoo: 새롭게 살아라.
Keith: Well yes pretty good too.
Hyunwoo: 아, 그런데 한국어에는 더 재미있는 표현이 있어요.
Keith: Okay.
Hyunwoo: 내일 죽을 것 처럼 살아라.
Seol: Wow!
Keith: Wow! That’s like the same thing except the opposite way right?
Hyunwoo: 네, 그렇죠.
Keith: 거의 똑같아요. All right well today is the first day of the rest of your life and today is also the first day of
Seol: 소연
Keith: 소연
Seol: 처음으로 아르바이트 하는 날.
Hyunwoo: 어디에서요?
Seol: 서점에서요.
Hyunwoo: Wow!
Keith: And do you remember your first day at the job?
Seol: 음...저는 이거 KoreanClass101.com 처음 녹음했던 날 기억나요.
Keith: 어땠어요 그 때는?
Seol: 떨리고 긴장되고 앞에 있는 Keith만 믿고 이렇게 막 굳어가지고 말했었던 기억나요.
Hyunwoo: 그런데 지금은 진짜 잘 하시잖아요.
Seol: 아니에요.
Keith: She is like a pro.
Hyunwoo: Yes
Seol: 아니에요. 아니에요. 다 두 분 덕분이에요.
Hyunwoo: 에이, 겸손하시기는.
Keith:Now you are a professional podcaster is what you are.
Seol: Hah!
Keith: Because we are on a professional podcast.
Seol: Wow!
Hyunwoo: That’s right.
Keith: So hopefully 소연 will be a professional book 아르바이트
Seol: Part timer?
Keith: Part timer. Maybe so we will see. We will see what happens right but today is her first day and 설처럼 말이 없고 긴장도 되고 땀도 나고.
Seol: 맞아요, 맞아요.
Hyunwoo: 그런데 소연은 별로 문제가 없을 것 같아요. 여기서 인성이 안내를 해줄 거거든요.
Keith: Yeah wait, wait, wait this is part of the dialogue. So let’s listen.

Keith: Sure... Huh?
(15)소연: 어?
Keith: Huh?
(16)사장님: 왜? 둘이 아는 사이야?
Keith: What? Do you know each other?
POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Keith: All right. Seol, 어땠어요?
Seol: 뭔가 소연과 인성 사이에 뭔가가 생길 것 같은 좋은 느낌이 들어요.
Hyunwoo: 네. 한국어로 그것을 썸씽이라고 하죠.
Keith: Wait, that’s not really 한국어 that’s English.
Hyunwoo: 그렇죠, 그렇지만
Keith: Wait, wait can we have that word again?
Seol: 썸씽
Hyunwoo: 네, 영어랑 다르죠. It’s not the English something 한국어로 썸씽이라고 하셔야 돼요.
Keith: And it’s the English word something
Hyunwoo: 그렇죠.
Keith:Hyunwoo: That’s what the Korean pronunciation and it’s something.
Hyunwoo: Between a man and a woman.
Keith: Ah okay.
Hyunwoo: 네
Keith: 그래서 예를 들으면?
Hyunwoo: 그 두 사람 썸씽이 있는 것 같아.
Keith: 썸씽 있다
Hyunwoo: 썸씽이 있다
Keith: 썸씽이 없다
Hyunwoo: 썸씽이 없다는 잘 안 써요. 썸씽이 없으면 말을 안 하겠죠.
Seol: 썸씽 있다, 썸씽이 생기다
Keith: 썸씽이 있다, 썸씽이
Hyunwoo: 생기다
Keith: Wow this is interesting. I didn’t know about this Konglish over here. All right 썸씽, 썸씽이 있다 all right, so there is something going on. There is a little chemistry maybe or magic sparks flying 그런 거?
Hyunwoo: Between the 사장님 and 소연?
Seol: No, no, no…
Keith: 사장님 말고
Seol: 소연과 인성
Keith:Hyunwoo: All right. So 썸씽 is not actually in our vocabulary but I will tell you what is our first word.

VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Keith: Let’s talk about the vocab words in a little more detail 첫 번째 단어는 뭐예요?
Seol: 아르바이트
Keith: Part time work 이거는 원래 어디 나라에서 나왔어요?
Seol: 독일어요.
Keith: German.
Seol: 독일어에서 온 아르바이트라는 단어가 한국에서는 part time하고 똑같은 뜻이에요.
Keith: Yeah. So this is a loanword from German. Well, why is there a loanword from German 독일이랑 한국은 어떤 사이였어요?
Hyunwoo: 독일어에서 일본어로 아르바이트라는 단어가 간 다음에 그 일본어를 한국인들이 쓰기 시작한 것 같아요.
Keith: So it’s actually a loanword from Japanese.
Hyunwoo: Japanese 그렇죠.
Keith: So it’s a German word that went to Japan 그 다음에 한국으로 갔죠.
Hyunwoo: 네
Keith: So now it’s a Korean word 아르바이트.
Hyunwoo: 그런데 요즘에는 이것을 짧게 줄여서 뭐라고 말하는지 아세요 설씨?
Seol: 알바
Hyunwoo: 알바. 아르바이트하면 너무 길잖아요. 그래서 알바라고 해요.
Keith:HSo the shortened version is
Hyunwoo: 알바 [slowly - broken down by syllable] 알바 [natural native speed]
Keith: Kind of like Jessica Alba. 두 번째 단어는 뭐예요?
Hyunwoo: 학생
Keith: Young man or young lady 이거는 원래 학생 a student 이잖아요.
Hyunwoo: 그렇죠. 그런데 사람을 부를 때 젊은 사람을 부를 때 음...몇 살까지 학생이라고 부르시겠어요?
Seol: 글쎄요. 이거 되게 재밌는 얘기가 있는데요. 예전에는 사람들이 저를 ‘학생!’ 이렇게 불렀어요. 어느 순간 ‘아가씨!’ 이렇게 부르더니 요새는 ‘새댁!’ ‘아줌마!’라고도 불러서...그런데 한 스물셋? 스물둘? 어려보이고 화장 안 하고 책가방 메고 있는 사람들을 보면 보통 ‘학생!’ 이렇게 부르죠.
Keith:So when you look young, when you look like a student up to about university student, older people will call you student 학생 and in English, it’s kind of like young man or young lady and again in Korean, Korean is all about titles. So if you don’t know someone, instead of saying you, you say
Hyunwoo: 학생
Keith: 학생
Hyunwoo: 보통 학생이라고 부르는데 조금 애매하면 저기요라고 부르죠. 그런데 아가씨라고 부르면 기분 좋지 않아요?
Seol: 아가씨는 괜찮아요.
Hyunwoo: 괜찮죠?
Keith: 아가씨 means a young lady. So 어떤 것이 더 좋아요? 학생? 아가씨?
Seol: 저 같은 경우는 학생이 더 좋아요. 왜냐면 학생은 젊고 어리고 가능성이 많은 그런 좋은 이미지를 가진 단어잖아요.
Hyunwoo: 아가씨가 어때서요?
Seol: 아가씨는...아가씨도 좋아요.
Keith: So don’t forget to stop by and call her 학생 student. All right our next word is
Hyunwoo: 좀
Keith: A bit or a little 이거는 원래 어떤 말이에요?
Seol: 조금을 줄여서 좀 이렇게 말해요.
Keith: Same thing but 오늘의 대화에는 어떻게 나왔어요?
Hyunwoo: 안내 좀 해 줘.
Keith: Guide a bit please do. So please show her around a bit. And what’s the difference between 안내 좀 해 줘 and 안내 해 줘?
Hyunwoo: 음...어떻게 다를까요? ‘안내 좀 해 줘.’라고 하면 ‘안내 해 줘.’ 보다는 좀 부드러워지죠.
Seol: 같은 명령어인데 ‘안내 해 줘.’는 정말 명령하는 투로 안내 해, 안내 해 줘인데 ‘안내 좀 해 줘.’ 이러면 부탁하는 그런 뉘앙스가 들어가서 안내 좀 해주겠니, 어 부탁하는데 좀 이것 좀 해줄래? 이런 좀 부드러운 느낌인 것 같아요.
Keith: So this is a speech softener. Korean is all about being a little more indirect, not being too direct. So instead of 안내 해 줘 guide her around 안내 좀 해 줘 please guide her around. Be a little, it’s asking a little favor being a little nicer.
Hyunwoo: 네, 그리고 방금 Keith가 말한 것 처럼 ‘좀’이라고도 하고 ‘쫌’이라고도 하죠.
Keith: Yes both pronunciations are acceptable 좀, 쫌.
Hyunwoo: 마찬가지로 조금
Seol: 쪼금
Hyunwoo: 둘 다 괜찮죠.
Keith: All right. Can we have a couple of example sentences?
Hyunwoo: 밥 좀 먹어.
Keith: Eat a bit and let’s take 좀 out.
Hyunwoo: 밥 먹어.
Keith: Eat. It’s so direct, it’s so in your face but the other one is
Hyunwoo: 밥 좀 먹어.
Keith: Come on, eat a bit, eat a little. Next example.
Hyunwoo: 나 도와줘.
Keith: Help me and with 좀.
Hyunwoo: 나 좀 도와줘.
Keith: Help me a bit. It’s being a little nicer.
Hyunwoo: 얘기하자.
Keith: Let’s talk 이것 좀 들으면 어떤 느낌이 들어요? What do you feel when you hear this 얘기하자?
Hyunwoo: 설, 얘기하자.
Seol: 무서워요.
Hyunwoo: 무섭죠?
Keith: Yeah it’s a little, man, what you got to say, he is so direct in my face.
Seol: 강하고 예 맞아요.
Keith:Direct in your face? Let’s talk.
Hyunwoo: 그런데 얘기 좀 하자 이렇게 말하면요?
Seol: 덜 무서워요.
Keith: So a little less not so scary, not so bad, not so direct, not so in your face and it’s okay. It’s like oh okay 얘기 좀 하자 okay let’s talk. All right and our last word is
Hyunwoo: 사이
Keith: This actually means between but 오늘의 대화에는 어떻게 나왔어요?
Seol: 아는 사이
Keith: Acquaintances but literally it’s knowing relationship and it’s 아는 knowing 사이 relationship 그런데 relationship은 다른 단어도 있잖아요.
Seol: 관계
Keith: And that also means relationship as well but the difference between 관계 and 사이 is that 사이 is between two parties and it’s more about the ambience, the atmosphere, the energy. The synergy between two parties. How is it, is it good, is it bad and maybe we are making it a little more complicated than it has to be but this is a very important word. It has a different nuance than the word 관계 relationship. 관계 is a definition of two parties and their relationship but 사이 is the actual relationship. What kind of energy, what kind of feelings you guys have. So my mom used to always tell me 사이좋게 놀아 you know 사이좋게 with good relationships, with good energy, with good harmony and play.
Hyunwoo: Keith, have you heard of the website called Cyworld. Cyworld actually means 사이좋은 world. So the Cyworld means 사이 plus world.
Keith: The world working together in perfect harmony and synergy. And it’s also used in much more simpler context as well but let’s go over a couple of simpler examples.
Seol: 저는 현우씨랑 사이가 좋아요.
Keith: My relationship with 현우 is good.
Seol: Keith는 현우씨랑 사이가 나빠요.
Keith: Keith and Hyunwoo’s relationship is not good. It’s bad.
Hyunwoo: 아니에요. 우리는 사이가 좋아요. 우리는 같이 일하는 사이거든요.
Keith: Ah that was good 같이 일하는 사이. Our relationship is working together.
Seol: 어, 저도 Keith랑 같이 밥 먹는 사이예요.
Keith: I am in a relationship with Keith where we eat.
Hyunwoo: 밥만 같이 먹어요? 같이 일도 하는 사이죠?
Seol: 일도 하고 같이 노는 사이예요.
Hyunwoo: 같이 노는 사이
Keith: 노는 사이. We are in a relationship where we hang out, where we play. All right, next we have our grammar point.

Lesson focus

Seol: 겠다
Keith: Can we have an example sentence?
Seol: Keith, 롯데월드에 간다고? 재미있겠다.
Keith: 재미있겠다. It must be fun. Now this 겠다 is a non-final sentence ending. It’s a speaker’s supposition or conjecture. Now this is used when you hear a piece of information. Then you give your feedback on it and it’s like it’ must be so. I suppose so. So let’s have a couple of example sentences.
Seol: 어 저기 케익이 있어. 맛있겠다.
Keith: It must be delicious.
Hyunwoo: 아 저 사람 좀 봐. 춥겠다.
Keith: Look at that person. He’s got to be cold.
Hyunwoo: 여기 레스토랑 좀 봐. 정말 비싸겠다.
Keith: Look at this restaurant, it must be expensive.
Seol: 어 내일 시험이 있다고? 공부 열심히 해야겠다.
Keith: You have an exam tomorrow, you must study hard and this in English can also be translated as it must be I guess or probably. 그럼 오늘의 대화에는 어떻게 나왔어요?
Seol: 지혜가 소연이 서점에서 아르바이트를 한다는 얘기를 듣고 우와 책 많이 읽을 수 있겠다!라고 말하는게 하나 나와요.
Keith: I guess you can read a lot of books.
Seol: 그래서 또 재미있겠다라고 말하는 것도 나와요.
Keith: It must be fun or it’s probably fun. I guess it’s fun.

Outro

Keith: So I think we are done over here. All right, 수고하셨습니다.
Seol: 수고하셨습니다.
Hyunwoo: 수고하셨어요.
Keith: 이거 끝나고 뭐 하실 거예요?
Hyunwoo: 저는 친구 만나러 갈 거예요.
Keith: 재미있겠다.
Seol: 음, 재미있겠다.
Hyunwoo: 여러분은 뭐 하러 가세요?
Seol: 어 저는 친구랑 짜장면 먹기로 했어요.
Hyunwoo: 우와 맛있겠다.
Seol: 음 맛있을 것 같아요. Keith는?
Keith: 일하러 가요.
Seol: 우와 힘들겠다.
Hyunwoo: 왜 이렇게 기뻐하세요?
Keith: Why are you so happy?
Seol: Keith가 힘들면 전 왠지 모르게 기뻐요.
Keith: 못됐다 못됐다
Seol: 못된 것 같아요.
Keith: All right, that’s going to do it. See you later.
Seol: Bye bye.
Hyunwoo: 감사합니다.

Hi 소무,


The 이 used after the Korean name 인성 here is not the subject-marking particle. Instead, when people sometimes talk about someone in casual language, 이 is attached after a Korean name that ends in a consonant. This is somewhat similar to the honorific 씨 used in formal language.


This link helps to explain the usage of 이 after Korean names (timestamp 3:20):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzy3lFJ8oJI


Hence, the dialogue is grammatically correct as it uses the structure of "Korean name (인성) + 이 + subject-marking particle (가)".


The video also covers when to use 이 (when talking about someone) and when to use 아/야 (when getting someone's attention) after Korean names.


Hope this helps to clear up what is going on here!

Hi 소무,


Thanks for posting. As previously explained, there are no grammatical errors in the dialogue.

I ment tjat there is mistake in dialog. It should be corrected.

K: 음... 인성이가 어디 있지? 인성아! 인성아!

Correction: 인성이가 --> 인성이

Reason: Name of person is 인성

Hi 소무,


Thanks for posting. When you discuss names that end with a consonant (without the last name) in a sentence, you attach '이'. This has nothing to do with the particle 이. So when you say,


지현이라고 합니다


지현이 would be the way Jihyun would say her name (no particle attached).

This is to make the pronunciation easier.


Now having said that, in the dialogue, ~가 어디에 있지 is a phrase that is used to ask where something/someone is.


Example:

강아지가 어디에 있지? (where is the puppy?)

종이가 어디에 있지? (where is the paper?)


And in the case of a person with a name that ends with a consonant:

인성이


You would use;

인성이가 어디에 있지? (where is In-sung?)


I hope this answered your question.


Cheers,

Lyn

Hi Lyn

Thanks for reply but again sorry the point was missed!

When name is 인성 then 인성이 is ok as subject. In the lesson dialog i suppose name of person is 인성.

So it should become 인성이 어디...

and not 인성+이가

Hope my point will be well received this time and necessary correction will be done.


P.s. Ofcourse some times during speaking particles 을,를,이,가 are dropped. But that is trivial point.

Will appreciate if lesson gets corrected or otherwise please claim that name of person is 인성이 in all these lessons.

Hi 소무,


Sorry that it took a while to get back to you.

The correct sentence is "음... 인성이가 어디 있지?". However, in colloquial Korean, native Koreans tend to omit particles (and I/we/us), which is why you will hear the abbreviated version, which is "음... 인성이 어디 있지?"


Cheers,

Lyn
