In A Movie Theater
Day 2 : What Kind of Movie Do You Like?
Everybody asks it at least once when you talk about movies. What kind of movie do you like? Asking about your favorite genre. Of course, Koreans are same. They make a same question for normal casual stuffs as you do. So, I think it’s pretty essential to have a casual conversation and you will learn to say what you like or not, what kind of things do you like or not. And yes, That is super essential.
Almost genres in Korean use English words in Korean pronunciation. It’s very easy to memorize them. Of course you can just say them in English.
what kind of movie genre do you like?
Korean movie doesn’t have ‘drama’ because drama means TV series. These days I’ve heard drama as a movie genre, but mostly Korean would think ‘TV soap’ when they hear it.
Everybody does romantic stuffs no matter what genre it is in Korean dramas.
로맨스 means ‘romance’ but sometimes Koreans call it ‘ro-mang’ to say someone’s ‘fantasy’. It’s used in an almost same way to English mostly.
This movie’s genre is not romance, neither comedy. It’s a garbage. 🙂
You must know Koreans don’t say ‘I love something’ normally. Use ‘Like’ always. if you want to say ‘I love that movie’ in Korean then use ‘like something very much’ instead of ‘love’
I like action movies
무슨 = What + noun or adjective
What color 무슨 색
What shape 무슨 모양
What movie 무슨 영화
무슨 doesn’t mean ‘what kind of’ literally. 어떤 does. But 무슨 is often used for ‘What kind of something’. But 무슨 can be replaced by 어떤. they are supposed to be different but Koreans don’t care much I think.
