Lesson Transcript

In today’s lesson, we will give you a phrase that will let you enjoy the many cultural exhibits, shows and sights Korea has to offer. In today’s lesson, we will cover getting an admission ticket. In Korean, one ticket please is 한 장 주세요 (han jang juseyo). One time slowly, it’s 한 장 주세요 (han jang juseyo). And by syllable, 한 장 주-세-요 (han jang ju-se-yo). This may sound familiar from one of our Riding the Rails series. The first part of the phrase is 한 장 (han jang). This literally means, one ticket. 한 (han) is one. Well actually 하나 (hana) is one but it changes to 한 (han) because of the counter added on to it. The counter that’s added on is 장 (jang) or ticket.
Let’s hear this again. 한 장 (han jang). Next we have 주세요 (juseyo) which as we all should know by now means, please. One time slowly, it’s 주세요 (juseyo). Altogether, the phrase we have is one ticket please. Pretty straightforward hah! Let’s go over a few more tickets as you may not be traveling alone. Two tickets is 두 장 (du jang), three tickets is 세 장 (se jang), four tickets is 네 장 (ne jang), and five tickets is 다섯 장 (daseot jang). Let’s hear two tickets to five tickets in order but this time slowly. 두 장 (du jang), 세 장 (se jang), 네 장 (ne jang), 다섯 장 (daseot jang). Once again that was two tickets to five tickets. And for all of these, we can add 주세요 (juseyo) at the end to request the tickets. To specify what ticket you want, we can simply say what we want in front of the phrase.
Let’s get five tickets to My Sassy Girl, a very popular Korean movie. The title of the movie My Sassy Girl in Korean is, 엽기적인 그녀 (yeopgijeogin geunyeo). One time slowly, it’s 엽기적인 그녀 (yeopgijeogin geunyeo). So here, we can simply say the movie title in front of how many tickets you want. The phrase here would be 엽기적인 그녀 다섯 장 주세요 (yeopgijeogin geunyeo daseot jang juseyo). This is literally My Sassy Girl or the movie title, five tickets please. One more time slowly, it’s 엽기적인 그녀 다섯 장 주세요 (yeopgijeogin geunyeo daseot jang juseyo). Now, for all you movie lovers out there, movie theaters in Korea are much like those you’ find out in America or Canada. They have the concession stands, the comfy seats and sometimes even the sticky floors but one thing should be addressed when watching a movie in Korea. Movie theaters in Korea have assigned seats. You can’t sit down anywhere you want. If the theater is empty, I am sure the staff won’t really bust your chops but if it’s a full house, make sure you are sitting in the right seat.
Okay. To close our today’s lesson, we’d like for you to practice what you’ve learned. I will provide you with the English equivalent of the phrase and you are responsible for shouting it out loud. You will have a few seconds before I give you the answer. So 화이팅 (hwaiting)!
One ticket please - 한 장 주세요 (han jang juseyo).
Two tickets please - 두 장 주세요 (du jang juseyo).
Three tickets please - 세 장 주세요 (se jang juseyo).
Four tickets please - 네 장 주세요 (ne jang juseyo).
Five tickets please - 다섯 장 주세요 (daseot jang juseyo).
All right, that’s going to do it for today.
