곳을 (gos-eul) | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

You may have noticed that there isn’t a Grammar of the Week this week. That’s temporary I’m working a little backwards this week, I’ll post it tomorrow. I haven’t actually written it yet. 미안해!!

However, that doesn’t mean that I can’t still do a WOTD.

곳을 (gos-eul) | “a place”

I’m pretty sure this is a very familiar word to you. As it should be. It’s been in countless kpop songs, news articles, k-dramas… you’ve been over-exposed to this word. But I’ll tell you something that you probably didn’t know, this isn’t actually the word.

Huh?

곳 (gos) | “place”

을 (eul) | object marking particle

Remember a while back when I told you that you’ll probably see object marking particles everywhere because you’ll use them often? What I forgot to add was, you’ll start to see them so often that you honestly just don’t notice them anymore.

i.e.,

  • 서로 등 돌리고 다른 곳을 보고 (seoro deung dolligo dareun goseul bogo) | “Our backs turned against each other, looking at different places,” [BEAST “12:30”]

Yes, this was a slight Kpop Teaches Korean Too but I just wanted to talk about this word and the use of object marking particles again.

That’s it for today! Grammar of the Week coming for sure tomorrow!
