운둥하다 (undonghada) + 고 싶다 | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Alright! So we’re ready to begin with some more examples? We’re still talking about wants/wishes and today we are going to hone in on exercising. It’s almost that time of year again and how many of us don’t want to get back into summer ready shape after putting on the weight during the winter.

…or was that just me?

운둥하다 (undonghada) | “to exercise”

i.e.,

  • 운동해 고 싶어요. (undonghae go sipeoyo.) | “I want to exercise.”
  • 나와 함께 운동 하고 싶었어요? (nawa hamkke undong hago sip-eoss-eoyo?) | “Did you want to exercise with me?”

Alright so that’s it! It’s pretty easy to remember with practice. Keep practicing making your own sentences!

See ya tomorrow!

Taeyeon | Upcoming Album Spotlight

So I said I wasn’t going to do Kpop Updates on here anymore because it just isn’t my passion to be a kpop blogger (but all the kpop updates will still be done regularly on twentythirdstation.tumblr.com if you’re looking for it!) However, I do still love talking about the music.

I was definitely going to reserve this for later but when I stumbled on YouTube earlier I saw all this promo for Taeyeon’s upcoming album. SM is really really pushing this with all the visuals and teasers. And after listening to it, I can see why. I truly enjoyed her solo debut and this album seems like it’s going to be the perfect follow-up. I won’t post all the teasers because there’s at least 12 of them, but check out the ones below!

Will you be listening?

-고 싶어요 (Expressing Wishes/Wants) | [Grammar of the Week]

안녕하세요!

Last week, we worked on building sentences based on grammar principles and words that we’re studied all this time! I really hope that by the end of it you were able to make at least one sentence on your own based on the examples. We’ll be doing that again the future.

This week, we’re going to look at a topic that I thought we discussed but I don’t think we did. It’s focused on expressing wishes, i.e., “I wish to do (x)” or “I want to go (x).” If we already studied this then we’ll just look at this as review.

Alright let’s get started!

-고 싶어요

  • If you remember last week, we talked a lot about 싶다 and used -고 a few times in sentences. But for the sake of review, let’s go over it again.
    • 싶다 | to be desirous of or to want (requires -고 to express a “want”)
    • -고 | and; and then
      • connects a sentences
      • particle

-고 싶어요 is used for 1st person (I/We want; would like; wish) and 2nd person (Do you want? Would you like?) statements and questions and also 3rd person, i.e., “he wants” or “she would like”.

We’re only going to focus on 1st/2nd person today and then next week we’ll look at 3rd person.

Let’s look at some examples.

  • 난 가고 싶어요. | “I want to go.”/ “I wish to go.”/ “I would like to go.”
  • 이것 사과를 먹고 싶어요. | “I want to eat this apple.”/ “I would like to eat this apple.”
  • 물을 마시고 싶으세요? | “Do you want to drink water?”/”Would you like to drink water?”

Okay so those are some examples of how this works. We’ll be doing examples on this all week before moving to 3rd person.

Keep practicing making your own sentences as well!
