진짜요? (jin-jja-yo?/chin-cha-yo?) [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

It’s not everyday I get to do a fun post like this one! This is one of the first words/phrases I learned in Korean. Maybe because I heard it all the time and it was super easy to remember and understand clearly.

진짜요 (jin-jja-yo?/chin-cha-yo?) [exclamation] | “Really; For real; Seriously”

The romanized spelling of it is an either/or type thing. It’s really just your preference.

Example: [sample conversation] (in Hangul)

  • Person 1 – “나는 결혼해요!” | I’m getting married!
  • Person 2 – “진짜요?!” (jin-jja-yo?/chin-cha-yo?) | For real?!
  • Person 1 – “네, 나 정말 행복해!” | Yes! I’m so happy!
  • Person 2 – “축하해요! 잘됐다!” | Congratulations! I’m happy for you!

Alright so that’s it for today!
