Korean 101: Really Important Words You Don't Learn Until It's Too Late!

Here are four words that aren't usually taught in Korean books until later chapters but they're really important to know if you're traveling in Korea!

불안전 - Caution/Unsafe!

(bool-ahn-jeon)

위험 - Danger!

(wee-heom)

금지 - Prohibited

(keum-ji)
You can usually figure out what they mean by what the sign is on (its usually for parking or smoking^^)

셀프 - Self

(sel-peu)
This is listed in restaurants and usually applies to water, silverware, and banchan (side dishes) It's not super rude, but if you ask for water when the sign clearly says "get it yourself" the waitress might be a little annoyed.
Example: 물은 셀프 = get the water yourself!

Can you think of any other important terms to know!?
