인분 (inbun) | [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Okay, so we’re moving on to the next word on the list. This one is pretty simple. This word is a counter. Meaning, it’s attached to a number to count a specific thing. This is done with people (명), animals (마리), objects (개) and other things.

Today we’ll just focus on this one. But, if you want to learn more about the use of counters, click here to see or if you’re more of a visual learner and want to see a video on it, click here.

Okay, let’s get started!

인분 (inbun) | “servings”

Vocabulary:

  • Sino-Korean numbers

i.e.,

  • 3(삼) 인분 (sam inbun) | 3 servings
    • 3 인분의 밥 (sam inbun-ui bab) | 3 servings of rice
  • 11(십일) 인분 (shib-il inbun) | 10 servings
    • 11 인분의 우유 (shib-il inbun-ui uyu) | 10 servings of milk

Now I know it’s a possibility that you’ve learned about this or heard about this the other way which is 우유 11 인분  (uyu shib-il inbun) and what I will say to that is, I’ve heard that way as well. I’ve been doing some research on which way is the right way to say it and since I see it being said both ways, I’m going to say that it doesn’t matter. However, that is subject to change the more I learn.

Okay, so that’s it!

Annnnddd!! I found a 먹방 (meogbang) or commonly known as “mukbang” completely in Korean for you guys where she uses this in the video. It does have English subtitles so you can turn them on if you need help following along.

Please also check out other videos on her channel especially if you like watching 먹방 videos but also trying to learn Korean.
