Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Becky: Must-Know Korean Social Media Phrases Season 1. Lesson 17 - At the Local Market.
Becky: Hi everyone, I'm Becky.
Jaehwi: And I'm Jaehwi.
Becky: In this lesson, you'll learn how to post and leave comments in Korean about something weird you found at a local market. 재우 (Jae-Wu) finds an unusual item at a local market, posts an image of it, and leaves this comment:
Jaehwi: 이런 거 처음 봐! (ireon geo cheoum bwa!)
Becky: Meaning - "Never seen this before!" Listen to a reading of the post and the comments that follow.

POST
Becky: Listen again to 재우 (Jae-Wu)'s post.
Jaehwi: 이런 거 처음 봐! (ireon geo cheoum bwa!)
Becky: "Never seen this before!"
Jaehwi: (SLOW) 이런 거 처음 봐! (ireon geo cheoum bwa!) (Regular) 이런 거 처음 봐! (ireon geo cheoum bwa!)
Becky: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "a thing like this."
Jaehwi: 이런 거 (ireon geo)
Becky: The formal version of this phrase will be..
Jaehwi: 이런 것 (ireon geot,)
Becky: but in daily conversation, Korean people use the noun..
Jaehwi: 거 (geo)
Becky: to mean “a thing” instead of the noun..
Jaehwi: 것 (geot.)
Becky: Listen again- "a thing like this" is...
Jaehwi: (SLOW) 이런 거 (ireon geo) (REGULAR) 이런 거 (ireon geo)
Becky: Then comes the phrase - "to see something for the first time."
Jaehwi: 처음 봐! (cheoeum bwa!)
Becky: This expression can be used when you see something for the very first time and you want to express your surprise. Listen again- "to see something for the first time" is...
Jaehwi: (SLOW) 처음 봐! (cheoeum bwa!) (REGULAR) 처음 봐! (cheoeum bwa!)
Becky: All together, "Never seen something like this before!"
Jaehwi: 이런 거 처음 봐! (ireon geo cheoum bwa!)
COMMENTS
Becky: In response, 재우 (Jae-Wu)'s friends leave some comments.
Becky: His neighbor, 민희 (Min-Hee), uses an expression meaning - "What's that? It looks funny."
Jaehwi: (SLOW) 그게 뭐야? 재미있게 생겼어. (geuge mwoya? jaemi-ikke saenggyeosseo.) (REGULAR) 그게 뭐야? 재미있게 생겼어. (geuge mwoya? jaemi-ikke saenggyeosseo.)
[Pause]
Jaehwi: 그게 뭐야? 재미있게 생겼어. (geuge mwoya? jaemi-ikke saenggyeosseo.)
