장을 보다 (jang-eul boda) [Word of the Day]


Ok so this is a completely different way that I’ve ever heard of saying grocery shopping. I’m not sure how many of you are actually familiar with this term as well, however I will do my best to use it in a sentence. Below I’ve provided two alternatives of ways that I would typically say grocery shopping.

장을 보다 (jang-eul boda) | “to do grocery shopping”


  • 나는 장 보러 가야. (naneun jang boleo gaya.) | “I have to go grocery shopping.”


  • 나는 식료품 쇼핑을 갈 필요가. (naneun siglyopum syoping-eul gal pil-yoga.) | “I need to go grocery shopping.”
  1. 식료품 쇼핑 (siglyopum syoping)
  2. 수퍼마켓 (syupeomakes)

That’s it for today!
