Lesson Transcript

Jaehwi: Hi everyone. I am Jaehwi. Welcome back to Korean Weekly Words. Let’s see what we have for this week. This week’s theme is why? No, okay this week’s theme is food. My one of the favorite topics to talk about. Okay let’s see what we have.
The first one is 쇠고기 (soegogi) which means “beef.” So you can say 저는 쇠고기로 만든 불고기를 매우 좋아합니다. (Jeoneun soegogiro mandeun bulgogireul maeu joahamnida.) which means “I really love bulgogi with beef.” Very delicious to have.
돼지고기 (doejigogi) it is all food. It makes me hungry. 돼지고기 (doejigogi) which means “pork.” 돼지 (doeji) is the word meaning “pig” 고기 (gogi) “meat.” So altogether it literally means a meat of pig. With that word, you can say 제주도는 흑돼지 고기로 매우 유명합니다. (Jejudoneun heukdwaeji gogiro maeu yumyeonghamnida.) which means “Jeju Island is well known for its black pork.” Black pig pork. So the pigs are black and that’s very delicious. You should try it when you visit Jeju Island.
밥 (bap) which means “rice.” With that word, you can say 밥이 없는 아침 식사는 아침 식사가 아닙니다. (Babi eomneun achim siksaneun achim siksaga animnida.) which means “A breakfast without rice is not breakfast.” Yeah many people believe so.
Okay next we have 해산물 (haesanmul) which means “seafood.” With that word, you can say 인천에 가면 맛있는 해산물 식당이 많이 있습니다. (Incheone gamyeon masinneun haesanmul sikdangi mani itsseumnida.) which means “When you go to Incheon City, then you can find many nice seafood restaurants.” Because it’s just next to the sea between South Korea and China. So they have very fresh, good seafoods.
밀 (mil) which means “wheat.” So you can say 라면은 밀로 만들었습니다. (Ramyeoneun millo mandeureotsseumnida.) which means “Ramen noodles are made out of wheat.”
Okay next we have end. Okay that’s all we have for this week. I hope you like these words about food. I will see you next time. 다음 시간에 뵙겠습니다. (Daeum sigane boepgetsseumnida.) 안녕히 계세요. (Annyeonghi gyeseyo.)
