Lesson Transcript

Yunseol: 안녕하세요, 윤설입니다.
Minkyong: 안녕하세요, 민경입니다.
Keith: Hey Keith here. Picture video vocab, lesson #8. Vending machine. All right. So, it’s summer these days and Mingyong, I know you hate hot weather. You just hate it.
Yunseol: 더운 거 너무 싫어요(Deoun geo neomu sireoyo).
Keith: Yeah why?
Minkyong: It’s just annoying. I don’t like it.
Yunseol: Me too. I don’t like to sweat.
Keith: Well, right in front of us, we have a Pocari Sweat.
Yunseol: Yeah. I can see it.
Keith: And actually this is a vending machine. We will get into this drink a little bit later. Let’s talk about vending machines in Korea. Vending machines are pretty much the same anywhere right?
Yunseol: 네.
Keith: And you can find them at your school. You can find them on the street next to buildings.
Yunseol: Near the station, inside the building and everywhere.
Keith: Yeah. And for the most part, I think the only thing that vending machines sell in Korea are drinks.
Yunseol: 네. 음료수를 많이 팔죠(eumnyosueumnyosureul mani paljyo).
Keith: What’s that word?
Yunseol: 음-료-수(eum-nyo-su).
Keith: And that means beverage. Now, beverage can mean a lot of things. Water, soda, beer?
Yunseol: No.
Minkyong: I don’t think so.
Keith: No beer vending machine.
Yunseol: Uh huh.
Minkyong: But we have a lot of coffee and tea vending machines.
Keith: Yeah. I noticed that a lot in restaurants. I think a lot of restaurants in Korea, they’ll have not really vending machine. It’s like a mini-vending machine.
Yunseol: 조그마한 소형 커피 머신이죠 .
Keith: Yeah. Just like a small coffee machine and I really enjoy them actually and they have them in the subway stations too, don’t they?
Yunseol: 맞아요. 저는 거의 매일 아침(geoui maeil achim) 뽑아 먹었는데요. It was almost ₩400.
Keith: Every morning?
Yunseol: Yes.
Keith: But they don’t even give you a lot.
Yunseol: 음, 양은 좀 작아요.
Minkyong: 근데 맛있어요(Geunde masisseoyo).
Keith: Yeah. And what kind of coffee is usually there?
Yunseol: 밀크커피(milkeukeopi).
Keith: Yeah I think the milk coffees are -
Yunseol: 저는 가끔 유자차(yujacha)도 뽑아 마셨어요.
Keith: And that’s citron tea.
Minkyong: 네. 매우 달콤하고 기분 좋아지는 향이 나요.
Keith: But what we have in front of us is just a very normal and average vending machine. And what’s vending machine in Korean?
Yunseol: 자판기(japangi). 자-판-기(ja-pan-gi).
Keith: And this specific one is a Pocari Sweat 자판기(japangi)--and you know, when I first heard of that drink, I thought it was so disgusting.
Yunseol: 왜요?
Keith: Because it has the word sweat in it. I don’t want to drink any sweat.
Yunseol: Oh okay.
Minkyong: Ha ha.
Yunseol: Okay. This sounds very reasonable but what does Pocari mean?
Keith: Well I don’t know what it means but it just has sweat there. That’s pretty disgusting right like if--미국에는 만약에--If there was a drink in America that said something like “something something 땀(ttam)”, You know, are you going to drink that?
Yunseol: No.
Keith: Yeah.
Yunseol: Maybe not, yeah.
Keith: Exactly. But I mean, after a while, I overcame my fear. I think I lost a bet or something. You have to drink the sweat. I was just like okay. Well, I drank it and it’s not bad. It’s okay.
Yunseol: It’s just like Gatorade right?
Keith: Ah little different. Gatorade has more flavour. Pocari Sweat is just like, sweet water.
Yunseol: Okay.
Keith: At least it’s not salty like sweet sweat.
Minkyong: Oh my god.
Yunseol: Eww. I don’t want to drink salty drinks.
Keith: Well, Pocari Sweat is not bad but okay, so what are we going to do if we want to drink. It’s a hot summer day. We need some drinks.
Yunseol: First of all, we need coins.
Keith: And what’s coins in Korean?
Yunseol: 동전(dongjeon). 동-전(dong-jeon).
Minkyong: 동전을 넣어야 해요(Dongjeoneul neoeoya haeyo).
Keith: All right. So we put that in there and now, what do we got to do?
Yunseol: We have to push the button of course. 버튼을 눌러야죠(Beoteuneul nulleoyajyo).
Keith: All right. So what’s the word button?
Yunseol: 버튼(beoteun). 버-튼(beo-teun).
Keith: Yes. That word button is pretty much the same on elevators, on cell phones and et cetera, et cetera. All right but if you want to press a button, what do we say?
Yunseol: 버튼을 누르다(Beoteuneul nureuda).
Keith: And what’s that verb?
Yunseol: 누르다(nureuda).
Keith: To press.
Yunseol: 누-르-다(nu-reu-da).
Keith: Okay. So we press that button and then, now what do we got?
Yunseol: We finally have our 음료수(eum-nyo-su). 음료수가 나와요(Eum-nyo-suga nawayo).
Keith: Yeah. And that’s the verb, to come out. What’s that verb again?
Yunseol: 나오다(naoda). 나-오-다(na-o-da).
Keith: All right. So we got our sweat and we are ready to cool down with sweat.
Yunseol: No.
Minkyong: Okay.
Keith: See but you think it’s disgusting now that I brought it up, right?
Yunseol: Now I feel like it’s disgusting.
Keith: Yeah.
Yunseol: Thank you. Thank you very much.
Keith: And this was actually a very short picture video vocab lesson but before we finish up, we got a couple of drinks over here. What do we have?
Yunseol: We have 포카리 스웨트(pokari seuweteu).
Keith: Yeah and that’s a sports drink and what other sports drinks are in Korea? What are Korean sports drinks?
Yunseol: 게토레이(getorei).
Keith: Actually I think that one is an American one. That’s Gatorade.
Yunseol: And Powerade--
Minkyong: 파워에이드(pawoeideu).
Keith: Um.
Yunseol: Isn’t there any Powerade in the States?
Keith: Yeah of course. All right. So we have that and if you look all the way to the right, I think that’s an energy drink or a drink for hangovers.
Yunseol: I’ve never seen this drink in my life.
Keith: Well, I haven’t seen it either but I’ve seen a lot of similar drinks like 박카스(bakkaseu).
Yunseol: Yeah. And I can see the level. So I believe it’s about Vitamin C or something like that.
Keith: Yeah. And a lot of like energy drinks, they will have the vitamin that they claim is in the drink.
Yunseol: Aha but it’s too little. That’s what you want to say?
Keith: No I just think it’s a sham. Like Pocari Sweat.
Yunseol: Okay. 사실은 여기있는 음료수들(eum-nyo-su)은 그다지 유명하지는 않아요.
Keith: Yeah actually I don’t recognize any of these drinks either.
Yunseol: 왜냐면 보통 한 자판기(japangi)에는 그 회사 제품만 들어있잖아요.
Keith: Um so one company’s vending machine has that company’s drinks. They won’t obviously allow let’s say a different company’s drink in there.
Yunseol: 맞아요. 만약에 이 회사가 코카콜라였다면 모든 제품을 다 알고 있겠지만.
Keith: Yeah. We would probably know the Coca-Cola one, but Pocari Sweat.
Yunseol: No it’s not famous. It’s not a big company.
Keith: Yeah. The only famous thing they have is the sweat.
Yunseol: Yeah.
Keith: That’s just what I am going to refer to it.
Yunseol: Right, right.
Keith: From now on. Okay well, that was a short picture video vocab lesson and I hope you enjoyed but remember to stop by KoreanClass101.com and leave us your comments. Let us know what you think and we will see you there. Bye bye!

싱가폴에는 자판기가 진짜 여러가지 종류로 있구나! 나중에 싱가폴에 가면 다 보여 줘 ㅎㅎㅎ (There are so many types of vending machines in Singapore! Show me all of them when I go there one day :mrgreen::mrgreen: )


Actually you should give it a try - it's quite nice :D :D :D

한번 마셔 봐. 생각보다 맛있어 ㅎㅎ 특히 아주 더울 때, 차갑게 해서 마시면 아주 좋아!


한국에서도 3년 전에는 그 정도 가격이었던 것 같아요. 지금은 조금 더 비싸졌지만요 ^^ I think it was around that price too in Korea 3 years ago. It's become more expensive now, though :)

Manyakumi, :grin::grin:

답변 감사합니다. Thanks for the answer!

Margaret, please take Manyakumi's tip :) What he wrote was exactly what you wanted to know!! It's not necessarily a matter of the conversation being colloquial or not :mrgreen:

And yes, 두번 means twice and 두번째 means the 2nd time. :)
