I’ve been a bit under the weather these last couple of weeks so these posts are delayed. I only have two as it was really hard to even write down what I have already. I missed my promise of compiling a list for you guys. Don’t worry, I’ll do it soon.
I wanted to talk about a word we use a lot for other things but can be used by itself to mean a lot of things.
- 그냥 (geunyang) | “just; for no reason; simply”
So how do you use it as only a phrase by itself? Well easily, you use it the same way you would in English. If someone asks you something like…
- 왜 저기보고있어? (wae jeogibogoiss-eo?)| “Why are you looking over there?”
You could respond:
- 그냥 (geunyang) | “for no reason”
And you can use this as a response if you really don’t have a reason or if you just don’t want to talk about it. I never thought about using it like that before since I only just use it without thinking. I guess watching kdramas every now and again is good for a refresher or two.
