결코하지 (gyeolkohaji) + 것 같아 | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

So to end this week before returning to a normal schedule on here, I’ve decided to kinda pick a phrase again instead of a word. I didn’t really know what to title this post because of that.

Have you ever been in a situation where you’re asked about something and you respond with something like “I probably wouldn’t” but to emphasize your point you use “never”? But how would you say that in Korean.

i.e.,

  • 나는 아마 그것을 결코하지 않을 것 같아. (naneun ama geugeos-eul gyeolkohaji anh-eul geos gat-a.) | “I will probably/likely never do it.”

The use of “never” is something I don’t think I ever really talked about before and so next week we’ll take a closer look at it.

See ya next year!

먹다 + 것 같아 | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Okay, short lesson today! I’m going to use another familiar verb. I think I use this all the time and I probably should start switching it up and using another one soon. Due to it being the holiday/vacation time this week, I won’t bombard you guys with new posts and I’ll just stick to the WOTD posts until after New Years so you can spend time away from the computer/tablet/cell phone screen.

Let’s get started!

먹다 (meogda) | “to eat”

i.e.,

  • 나중에 뭔가를 먹을것 같아. (najung-e mwongaleul meog-eulgeos gat-a.) | “I will likely eat something later.”

That’s it for today! Really short post!

싫어 + 것 같아 | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

This post is a day late and that was my mistake. I went to the movies yesterday and I totally forgot to blog. 미안해! (s/n: Rogue One was awesome!) However, I’m here now! And so without further ado, let’s get started!!

싫어 | conjugated form of 싫어하다 meaning, “to hate” or “to dislike”

We’re creating a sentence that follows the grammar lesson for this week using the ending 것 같아, “to seem like, to be likely, or probably”. 

i.e.,

  • 그 영화를 싫어할 것 같아. (geu yeonghwaleul silh-eohal geos gat-a.) | “I will probably not like that movie.”

I picked a familiar word, 영화 since I did go to the movies yesterday. However, this same structure can be used to say something else you probably wouldn’t like. For example, “that dessert”. You can also add why you probably wouldn’t like it.

  • 무서운 영화이기 때문에 그 영화를 싫어할 것 같아. (museoun yeonghwaigi ttaemun-e geu yeonghwaleul silh-eohal geos gat-a.) | “Because it’s a scary movie, I probably will not like that movie.” {무서운 (museoun) | “scary”}

Okay so that’s it for today!

Chancellor(챈슬러) | Artist of the Week

This week’s Artist of the Week is Chancellor(챈슬러)! I was so excited to be able to do this post because I am a big fan! Born and raised in the US, Mikey Kim, professionally known by his stage name Chancellor(챈슬러), is a Korean- American singer, songwriter and record producer.   I heard the song “Surrender” and I was completely hooked!! Chancellor(챈슬러) is a gem. I love his R&B/Soul/Pop sound.The ballads are just incredible.

So usually I can get a playlist of the featured artist on Soundcloud, however, this time was a bit more difficult. Not worry, I found more music you can check out from him below!
