Korean 101: OH MY GOD!

Time to learn how to be surprised in Korean!

어머 - Oh my!

(eo-meo)

This is used when you're shocked and can't form coherent words lol! You just have enough time to say "EO-MEO!"

깜짝이야 - Ahhh! I'm so surprised!

(kkam-jjak-ee-ya)

This is when someone or something scares/surprises you and you are like "omg you SCARED ME!"

오마이갓! - Oh my God!

(oh-ma-ee-gaht)

Used the same way we use in English!

When's the last time you had to say 깜짝이야!?
