Artist of the Week | Stray Kids

The group I chose this week is not really new since they’ve been signed to JYP Entertainment since 2017 but they’re new to me. I was recently introduced to them about a couple of weeks ago and I’ve had their newest song, “I am YOU” on repeat ever since! They currently have 4 albums, “Mixtape”, “I am NOT”, “I am WHO”, “I am YOU” and all of them are really good it’s hard to pick a favorite.

If you haven’t heard of them before, check out the sample playlist below!

Weekly Lesson #47 |더 좋아요 (to prefer)

안녕하세요!

I completely lost track of the days and I forgot to post last week on Thursday. My apologies everybody! I know the picture may throw you off a little since this post doesn’t actually have a lot to do with cake and cupcakes but I kinda used them as the vocabulary words today and I’m hungry so don’t mind me.

Today we’re going to do a quick lesson on preferences. It dawned on me that we never actually talked about how to express something like, “I prefer listening to music than singing.” or “I prefer apples to oranges.”

Let’s get started!

Vocabulary:

  • 케이크 | cake
  • 컵 케이크 | cupcake
  • 아이스크림 | ice-cream
  • 요거트 | yogurt
  • 영화 | movies
  • 드라마 | drama

Grammar Point:

  • 더 좋아요 means “to prefer” and comes at the end of a sentence.
    • lit: “to like more” 
  • 보다 is used for comparisons so 보다 더 meaning “more than” or “compared to.”

i.e.,

  • 나는 컵 케이크보다 케이크 더 좋아요. (naneun keob keikeuboda keikeu deo joh-ayo.) | “I prefer cake to cupcakes.”
    • or “I like cakes compared to/more than cupcakes.”
  • 나는 영화보다 드라마 더 좋아요. (naneun yeonghwaboda deulama deo joh-ayo.) |
    • “I prefer dramas to movies.”
      • or “I like dramas compared to/more than movies.”
