Korean Vocab of the Day #7
"술 한잔 할래요?"
(How about having a drink?)
I don't know how many of you know the Korean actress called 전도연, but we cannot talk about Korean movie industry without talking about her. She's one of the greatest actresses and won many awards aboard including Cannes. This movie called '무뢰한' is one of her recent movies and I wanted to introduce this to you all. Let me capture the info about 무뢰한 from Wikipedia. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shameless) You can also read the plot there. " The Shameless (Hangul: 무뢰한; RR: Muroehan; lit. "A Bastard" or "A Rouge") is a 2015 South Korean film starring Kim Nam-gil and Jeon Do-yeon. It is written and directed by Oh Seung-uk, who described it as a "hardboiled romantic noir thriller. The Shameless made its world premiere in the Un Certain Regard section of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival"
Enough about the movie! Let's study today's vocabulary.
'오늘도 술 한잔 할래요?'
"How about having a drink today as well?" "Shall we have a drink today as well?"
~도: this comes after a noun, meaning "as well", "too"
한 잔: a drink. '잔' itself means 'a glass' and in this context, it means 술 잔 (a glass for drinks)
'술 한잔 할래요?' - this is very frequently used expression in Korea.
Among friends, you may say '오늘 술 한잔 어때?" (What about a drink today?) more casually.
"verb + 할래요?" - this is to suggest the other person (people) doing something together.
1) 영화보러 갈래요? Shall we go for a movie?
2) 점심 먹으러 갈래요? Shall we go for lunch?
3) 한강에 조깅하러 갈래요? Shall we go for jogging along the Han River?
