Lesson Transcript

Jaehwi: Hi everyone, I am Jaehwi Lee, the product manager of KoreanClass101.com. Welcome to Weekly Words. I am going to introduce some words in Korean. Actually I haven’t seen them yet. So I am kind of excited to see what kind of words I am going to see.
Okay the first word is 슬픈, 슬픈 (seulpeun). It means “sad” like you can say 그 영화는 슬픈 영화다. (Geu yeonghwaneun seulpeun yeonghwada.) meaning like “That movie is a sad movie.”
And the next one will be, 어려운 (eoryeoun) “difficult.” If you just started learning Korean, then you might say 한국어는… (Hangugeoneun…) ah no it’s not good. I have to motivate people, I want to say that 한국어는 어려운 언어가 아닙니다. (Hangugeoneun eoryeoun eoneoga animnida.) which means Korean is not a difficult language.
The next one will be – I have to make a sample sentence with that 못생긴 (motsaenggin) which means “ugly.” Well actually it’s not easy to make a sentence with this word because it mostly have to be with someone but I might say 못생긴 친구가 예뻐졌다. which means “One of my ugly friends became beautiful.” That happens a lot at my college. Right, they have sometimes got some plastic surgery and they just become beautiful. So I might say 못생긴 친구가 예뻐졌다. (Motsaenggin chinguga yeppeojyeotda.)
Next one is 화난 (hwanan) which means “angry.” 오늘 아침에 화난 일이 있었다. (Oneul achime hwanan iri isseotda.) Like 화난 일 (hwanan il) it is something like something making you angry. So that means like “There was something making me angry this morning.”
Okay the next one is 역겨운 which means “disgusting.” I think I never used this word in my life. I can say 내 친구는 역겨운 음식을 좋아한다. (Nae chinguneun yeokgyeoun eumsigeul joahanda.) which means “My friend likes disgusting food.” I might say 역겨운 (yeokgyeoun) about food but I will never say that to some person or something.
Okay that’s all words for this week. I hope to see you next week. 안녕히 계세요. (Annyeonghi gyeseyo.)

Hi Angelica,


Thanks for posting. Yes, you would use 슬퍼/슬펐어 when you use it at the end of the sentence.

In front of a noun you would use 슬픈.


Cheers,

Lyn

그 영화는 슬픈 영화다. Do I say

슬퍼 only if the word is at the end? I get confused with when to use seulpeun and when to use seulpeo. Thanks so much!

Hi Desiree,


Could 예뻐 친구가 못생긴졌다 mean “one of my beautiful friends became ugly”?

-> 예쁜 친구가 못생겨졌다.


Also would it just refer to looks or could it imply “ugly and beautiful character or personality”?

-> It just refers to looks.


저는 슬픈 좋아한다. 때문에 소리 좋아요. I want to say in one sentence, “I especially like 슬픈 because of how it sounds.”

-> 저는 슬픈을 발음 때문에 특히 좋아해요./저는 슬픈이 발음 때문에 특히 좋아요.


감사합니다.

못생긴 친구가 예뻐졌다 means "one of my ugly friends became beautiful." Could 예뻐 친구가 못생긴졌다 mean "one of my beautiful friends became ugly"? Also would it just refer to looks or could it imply "ugly and beautiful character or personality"?
