피곤하다 (pigonhada) [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요 (annyeonghaseyo)!

How many times have you told someone “I’m tired” when they ask how you were doing? I’m sure it’s probably part of your everyday vernacular in English. (I’m pretty sure that was an oxymoron) But, you’re learning Korean. So how would you express that same sentiment when asked, “잘 지내세요?”

피곤하다 ‎(pigonhada) [adj] | “to be tired”

Example:

Person 1: 안녕! 잘 지내세요? (annyeong! Jal jinaeseyo?) | “Hey how are you?”

Person 2: 피곤해요. 잘 지내? (pigonhaeyo. Jal jinae?) | “I’m tired. How are you?” 

The conversation would probably be a bit different but that’s an example of how you could you use that phrase. So that’s it for today!
