가고 싶어요 (gago sip-eoyo) | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

So we’re looking again at a familiar phrase. I’ve been watching a few new k-dramas and I have to say, I heard this one phrase a lot throughout each show. It’s really interesting to note that we hear this usage a lot more often than we realize it.

가고 싶어요 (gago sip-eoyo) | 가다 + -고 싶다

And it means, “want to go”. We’re going to look at how this “want” can be put into a sentence other than, “I want to go”.

i.e.,

  • 너와 함께 공원에 가 고 싶어요.(neowa hamkke gong-won-e ga go sip-eoyo.) | “I want to go with you to the park.”

Not only are you expressing a “want” or “desire” to travel along with someone, but you’re also using a location particle creating a more complex sentence. We can change the location to say, “내일 너와 함께 쇼핑몰에 가 고 싶어요” or “I want to go to the mall with you tomorrow”.

As we progress in weekly WOTD examples, I’m going to try to combine more of the previous lessons so you can see how they all connect. This is also a good way to measure just how much you truly understand already!

That’s all for today!
