Korean Phrase of the Week #5

KPOTW # 4 :

Today’s KPOTW is from a drama that had such great actors and actresses that acted such awesome and hilarious characters. It involved some fiction history about a Gumiho… guessed what is that drama already?

Yes, you guessed right. It is My Girlfriend is a Gumiho/ My Girlfriend is a nine-tailed fox.

In whole drama Gumiho wanted to keep a “Bi Mil” from all humans.

“Bi Mil” means: Secret

How to write it in Hangul: 비밀

Do you know what Gumihos eat? They love to eat meat, so after their meal, Gumiho always said “Mashita”.

It means: Delicious

This is how you write it in Hangul: 맛있다

Gumiho always liked Dae Woong who acted as Lee Seung Gi, and she always said “Nomo nomo jeong-mal joahhae”.

Meaning: I really really like you

Hangul: 나 너 정말 좋아해

The ending of the drama was awesome. Everybody thought it was going to be sad, but it is actually a happy ending. So that’s it for today. Did you like those phrases? Did you enjoy the drama? Comment on the section below and don’t forget to share this on Twitter and Facebook.

    For next week’s phrases can we have:

    “we rewrote our history books to say Takeshima island is ours”
    “we pay VANK to bore people into stop calling it the Sea of Japan, and call it the Sea of Filipinos love Korea”

  4. jOselyne♥ says:

    Uhm… You missed some words in the last sentence… It’s actually: 나 무 너무 정말 좋아해

    • jOselyne♥ says:

      LMAO I actually typed it wrong XD

      it’s 너무 너무 정말 좋아해

      • SuperJuniorLover6666666666 says:

        haha 나무~!!
        But i don’t think they missed a few words, because it’s saying ‘I really like you’. When you typed it, you’re saying ‘very very really like’. in the drama, she does say 너무 너무 a lot…

        But they i think they should put a comma after 나.

        • Mark says:

          No they shouldn’t put a comma after 나 that would be grammatically incorrect.

          나 너 절말 좋아해 is fine.

  5. Bisu-Fan says:

    um… what the korean says is pronounced,
    na nuh jongmal joahhae

  6. abundanttempest says:

    LOVED this drama! anything by the Hong sisters is Amazing! there were so many catchphrases, actions, and fashion from this drama. your list could continue…
    I definitely use “mashita!” all the time. 🙂

    • Book says:

      What would your non-korean friends say when you’re saying ‘mashita’ all the time? Do they ask why you’re trying to be Korean?

  7. Linda says:

    please continue this portion, small phrases like this will help me a lot learn and understand korean.

  8. Mark says:

    this is SO WRONG

    나 너 정말 좋아해

    is na neo jeongmal johahae

    the first phrase you put which SHOULD be romanized as neo mo neo mo jeongmal johahae

    would be 너모 너모 정말 좋아해 which loosely translates to “me too me too (I like you as well)”

    If you are going to be teaching useless Korean that will never be used in real life situations at least do it right so these people don’t look like even bigger morons blabbing it out to other people.

    비밀 also has more than one meaning, it can mean “password”, not just “secret”…seriously who the hell writes this? I’m not even a Korean and I know this.

    • Mark says:

      sorry a bit of a mistake the second should be “I like you too” because 너 is referring to the other person, slight mistake on my behalf.

  9. Carnation says:

    I like the phrases and liked the drama very much.

  10. akayumi miho says:

    what is the true translation of Nomo nomo jeong-mal joahhae ?
    what is the true spelling ?
