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.

가다
[ga da]

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.

우리 영화 보러 가요
Let’s go to the movies

데이트
[de i teu]

Koreans also use the word, Date but it only means a romantic date and it can be used as a verb. ‘데이트하다’

재밌다
[jae mit da]

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)
