In A Movie Theater
Day 1 : Go To The Movies
Everybody loves movies and I think it’s essential for having a date with someone else, once at least. So, new theme for a new week is about movie! In this week, we are going to learn new 25 vocabularies that we can use in a movie theater. You can use Korean vocabs in this lesson and use them in other situations even though the title is ‘in a movie theater’, Please don’t leave this page because of the title lol
Koreans will understand you perfectly even if you say ‘movie’. They often use the word 무비 instead of 영화. But of course, Koreans just say ‘영화’ in a casual conversation.
What kind of movie do you like?
Koreans often say the name of movie theater chains instead of movie theater. The most popular chain is CGV, Megabox, Lotte cinema. 영화관 is something a bit hard to hear in a casual conversation.
That cinema was built last year.
Go in Korean is veeeeeery different than Go in many other languages. It doesn’t mean ‘disappear’ so you can’t say ‘let it go’ or ‘my cold is gone’. It simply means a motion of movement. the big difference you can find is ‘I’m coming’. Koreans say ‘I’m going’ not ‘coming’ since the verb ‘go’ means only a motion in Korean.
Let’s go to the movies
Koreans also use the word, Date but it only means a romantic date and it can be used as a verb. ‘데이트하다’
I have a date
재밌다 literally means ‘fun’ or ‘funny’. But it’s used as ‘have a good time’ or ‘something is nice’. It would be easier if you check the example sentence below.
That movie is a bit sad but fun (nice)
