51. Mom, I don’t want to wear this – 엄마, 난 이걸 입고 싶지 않아요.

  • Eomma, nan igeol ibgo sipji anh-ayo.

Well you know, because parents make you wear crap you don’t like. No, I don’t need another sweater. No, I don’t need a scarf. Yes, I’m wearing underwear. And NO, I don’t want to wear this!

52. I’m happy – 행복해요

  • Haengboghaeyo

If you ever wanted to talk about your happiness in Korean, possibly on Facebook… or translate Pharrell’s “I’m Happy” Song into Korean, I just gave you 90% of the lyrics right here. I hope you’re happy learning Korean at LinguaJunkie!

53. I have to go to bed – 자야겠어요

  • Jayagess-eoyo

Sleep is important. And if someone’s keeping you up on KakaoTalk or Facebook Chat… you should tell them straight up, you need to go to bed. Here’s another variation:

  • I have to go to sleep
  • 자야합니다
  • Jayahabnida

54. I’d like to see you tomorrow – 내일 뵙고 싶습니다만

  • Naeil boebgo sipseubnidaman

So, you just had a nice first date. Oh, and you want to follow up and see your Korean friend as soon as possible! Why not tomorrow!? Maybe you guys can go to Holly’s coffee shop!

55. I am dying to see her again – 나는 그녀를 다시 보고 싶어 미치겠다

  • Naneun geunyeoleul dasi bogo sip-eo michigessda.

Hold on, Romeo, it was only one date. But, if you really are dying to see her again, well, we can’t stop you. You’ll probably hear this a lot in Korean dramas too.

56. Are you busy? – 바빠요?

  • Bappayo?

Good phrase to use with friends if you want to get their attention.

57. How about a cup of coffee? – 커피 한 잔 어떠세요?

  • Keopi han jan eotteoseyo?

Coffee’s everywhere in Korea. This is a good question to get dates or just take the time out and hang out with your friend. And honestly, who hates coffee? Coffee makes the world go round and is keeping me learning Korean.

58. I don’t know if I have the time – 시간 있는지 잘 모르겠습니다

  • Sigan issneunji jal moleugessseubnida

Great way to reject someone! “Nah, no coffee. I don’t know if I have the time.” It’s better to be indirect like this in Korean instead of saying, “No, go away” as it’s considered more polite. You might even hear this too!

59. Happy Birthday – 생일 축하해요

  • Saeng-il chughahaeyo

You’ll need to wish your Korean friends a happy birthday, no? Facebook makes it as easy as 1, 2, 3 and no presents required! Otherwise, you’d just be a bad friend. If you want to add their name, just use it right after the phrase.

60. Are you sick/Are you okay? – 괜찮아요?

  • Gwaenchanh-ayo?

There’s too much coffee references in this post. Sorry, this is the last one. Your date is lying on the floor and convulsing from drinking too much coffee. I mean, sure you can call an ambulance, but first you can ask them if they’re OK or sick. Good phrase to use with friends!
