VIDEO| Speakin’ Korean lesson: I’m full

Stripes Korea

Food is an important part of every culture and it is a good way to share our culture and our love. If you are invited to your friend's home for a meal, the host might continue to try to give you more food as a courtesy even if you say you have had enough food.

Here’s a polite way to tell your host you’re done with your food: “aniyo, kwaen-chan-ayo.”, “bae-bul-leo-yo.”

“No, thanks.” = 아니요, 괜찮아요. (aniyo, kwaenchanayo) (aniyo 아니요 = No,  괜찮아요 = be stuffed)

“I’m full.” = 배불러요. (bae-bul-leo-yo) (bae 배 = stomach, bea bureuda = be stuffed)

Stay safe and keep an eye out for the next Speakin’ Korean lesson.
