Today we're going to learn the Korean English.
Konglish.
You should know.
Hey, what up guys.
Welcome back to Sibongtv.
If you don't want to miss my latest episodes, please don't forget to hit that subscribe button.
Okay. In this episode, what we are going to learn is Konglish.
Konglish stands for Koreanized English.
In each country, they have their own way to speak English, right?
So yeah, in Korea, we have some specific English words that only Koreans use.
The reason I make this video is when you travel to Korea, or if you have any Korean friends, you know.
To avoid the misunderstandings.
So you can anticipate for those misunderstanding through this stupid Konglish lesson.
All right then, let's get to know one by one.
Number one. Skinship.
I'll give you three seconds that you can guess.
Okay. 1...2...3...
Skinship actually means a touch, you know.
It's like physical interaction or like, physical relationship.
Any touch. Like human's doing.
But if you say "touch" in Korea, that doesn't mean like, physical interaction.
That's only means like, just high-five, or you know, touch.
So if you just say touch, I think Koreans might not understand.
But if you say skinship, most of them will understand.
So in case, if you don't like to be touched from someone else,
if you say "Don't touch." Sometimes Koreans think that's kind of rude.
You know, it's too strong to say that.
But if you say like, "No skinship please." Then they will be more happier to stop doing it.
I know it's broken English, but if you are traveling in Korea, the word you should know.
Skinship.
This is skinship.
Okay next one is A/S.
After service.
I give you three seconds, you can guess.
1, 2, 3!
Yeah, if you thought of something adult or porn,
I think you're just a pervert.
Nah, I'm just joking.
After service means Warranty.
So if you shop around in Seoul, or I mean, in Korea,
you know, if you shop around,
you know like, most mobile devices, or electronic devices
from Samsung or Apple or big major companies in the world,
they provide international warranties right?
You know if you ask the staff of the store,
is the warranty available, then you can ask them like
"After service ok?"
Then they will say ok or no.
Easy to ask right? After service.
Number 3. Meeting.
I'll give you three seconds, you can guess.
1, 2, 3.
In Australia, when people saying meeting,
it's mostly about business meeting right?
But in Korea, when we causally say meeting,
it means "blind date".
Boy and girl, they don't know each other, but they got introduced from their friends,
so they do a blind date.
Which means meeting.
If there's, you know, young Korean, one of your friends,
if they say, "oh I'm going out to meeting."
Which means they're going to blind date.
Or you can ask to your friend you know,
"I need some meeting." You know.
Which means you want a boy, a girl, who can do a blind date with you.
It's a simple word. Meeting. It's not a business meeting.
Blind date.
Health.
1, 2, 3.
Health actually means "gym".
So if you are traveling in Korea, and if you want to work out.
And if that's your hobby, you can go to hotel reception, and then ask them.
"Where's the health?"
Sometimes they might not understand what "gym" means.
Then you can ask them "I need health", "health".
They will understand that you need a gym to work out.
Super.
Can you guess what super means in Korea?
I give you three seconds.
1, 2, 3.
When you say "I'm going to super" in Korea,
which means you're going to supermarket.
It doesn't matter whether it's a big market or small market.
But when you say super, it means you're going to the supermarket.
To avoid your misunderstanding, I'm telling you.
Fighting.
This is one of the famous words you can hear from Korea.
When we do like World Cup, you know,
like international football league or something.
Heaps of Koreans they always keep saying "fighting, fighting, fighting!"
This doesn't mean you actually want to fight, this means "cheer up, hurray!" you know.
When your friends say "you're fighting" to you,
which means they want to cheer you up.
They want to give you more power.
Be cheering for you, you know.
So Koreans, they love to say fighting!
To give you more power. Fighting!
Okay. Last one. Hunting.
Hunting actually means that you're shooting a gun to get the wildlife animals right?
But in Korea, when you say hunting, because it's illegal to carry guns on the street,
it means "picking up girls".
If you're a boy, and if you're traveling in Korea,
and if your friends say "let's go hunting", which means let's go out to pick up girls to drink with.
Okay so far, those were Koreanized English.
I know that they're broken English.
But you know, language are getting developed, so one day this could be the real English in the future right?
Yeah this would help if you're traveling in Korea.
Actually you got to know those.
So you won't misunderstand what Koreans are saying and then you can communicate better with them.
So if you got any questions, regard to Korean English, or something you are uncomfortable with,
please leave a comment.
So me and our family will help you out soon.
Alright then, I'll see you guys. Stay tuned.
