늦잠 (neuj-jam)| [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Okay so yesterday I introduced you guys to the ending -거든요. Today, we’re going to look at how to use this when you need to give an excuse for why you couldn’t do something. We all have had times when we couldn’t make an event or couldn’t do something because life happens! So how do you express that?

Let’s get started!

Verb/Adjective stem + 거든요

늦잠 (neuj-jam)

  1. to oversleep
  2. to wake up late

Scenario Example:

Mina: 민호야! 학교에 늦을거야! (minhoya! haggyoe neuj-eulgeoya!) | Min-ho! You’re going to be late for school!

Min-ho: 몇 시죠? (myeoch sijyo?) | “What time is it?”

Mina: “8시37분!  너 왜 늦었 니?” (neo wae neuj-eoss ni?) | “It’s 8:37! Why are you late?”

Min-ho:  미안. 늦잠의 뜨거든.  (mian. neuj-jam-ui tteugeodeun.) | “Sorry. (It’s because…) I overslept.”

Alright so that’s it for today!
