원피스 (wonpiseu) [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

So today’s word was a bit interesting for me. Personally, when I first read it, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It literally reads like, “One piece”. And that’s pretty important to remember with the definition.

원피스 (wonpiseu) | “one-piece dress”

정장 (jeongjang) | “suit; formal dress”

드레스 (deuleseu) | “dress”

These are actually a bit of a “context” words. For example, 정장 (jeongjang) does not necessarily indicate an actual dress but rather, it’s meant in terms of like, “dress up”. At any rate, to keep the confusion down, I won’t use all of them as examples today. I will be using 드레스 (deuleseu) in the examples only because it is more common and it just makes more sense to me to use that instead.

Examples:

  • 그 예쁜 드레스입니다. (geu yeppeun deuleseu-ibnida.) | “That’s a pretty dress.”
  • 나 드레스를 살 것이다. (na deuleseuleul sal geos-ida.) | “I’ll buy a dress.”

I hope I didn’t confuse you too much throwing out 3 words at once like that. They’re different however they are related and I just wanted them to be familiar to you.

This clothing theme will end officially tomorrow!
