어울리다 ‎(eoullida) ‎[Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

So today’s word is one I stumbled upon by pure accident. I was looking for a completely different word and now that I’ve found this one, I honestly forgot what I was looking for. However, this is still a good word to put in your vocabulary bank!

어울리다 ‎(eoullida) [v] | “to suit; to fit nicely; to match”

Example:

  • 나에게 어울린다 않아. (na-ege eoullinda anh-a.) | “It doesn’t fit me.” Alternate meaning: (it doesn’t look good on me)
  • 너에게 그 드레스 잘 어울린다. (neoege geu deuleseu jal eoullinda.) | “That dress suits you well.” Alternate meaning: (that dress fits you nicely.)

Ok so that’s about it.

For Non-Native English Readers: I added the alternate meaning for those of you who are learning English and may be a bit confused by this one. As you probably know by now, a lot of words and phrases in English can have multiple meanings and can be confusing at times. Phrases like “fit me” can literally mean “correct size” or it can be used to mean how something looks on you. Same thing with “suit” it can mean the clothing type, “He wore a suit” or it can mean how something looks on you.

That’s it for today!
