CLOTHES in Korean – Fashion Show Edition (KWOW #60)

Professor Oh August 1, 2012 27

Billy Jin replied to the winners from last week’s contest. For this week’s extra special contest, scroll to the end of this post!

It’s sad but true: we’ve come to the last episode of KWOW. We thank each and every one of our viewers for watching our Wednesday weekly show. Know that this is not goodbye forever. Professor Oh and friends are just taking a short hiatus to do some maintenance outside of Youtube. Stay tuned for future videos! Be the first to know of our return by liking us on Facebook and subscribing to our Youtube channel.

Our final episode is a combination between a Korean drama and a fashion show. We thought it’d be a fun way to teach your popularly-requested topic: clothes. While there are many variations to say—for example—pants (i.e. sweatpants, trousers, cargo pants, etc), we’re focusing on the common clothing terms:

Let’s review the featured words and more!

TOPS
Tank top = 탱크톱 (taeng-keu-tohp)
Shirt = 셔츠 (shyeo-cheu)
T-shirt = 티셔츠 (tee-shyeo-cheu)
Turtleneck = 폴로 (pol-lo)

BOTTOMS
Pants = 바지 (ba-jee)
Jeans = 청바지 (chung-ba-jee)
Shorts = 반바지
Skirt = 치마 (chee-ma)

FOR FEET
Sandals = 샌들 (sen-deul)
Shoes = 신발 (shin-bal)
Sneakers = 운동화 (oon-dong-hwa)
High heels = 하이힐 (ha-ee-heel)
Dress shoes = 구두 (goo-doo)

WINTER APPAREL
Coat = 코트 / 오바 (koh-teu / oh-ba)
Jacket = 재킷 / 잠바 (jae-keet / jam-ba)
Leather jacket = 가죽잠바 (ga-jook-jam-ba)
Sweater = 스웨터 (seu-weh-tuh)

FORMAL WEAR
Dress = 드레스 (deu-reh-seu)
Wedding dress = 웨딩드레스 (weh-ding-deu-reh-seu)
Suit = 양복 (yang-bok)
Dress shirt = 와이셔츠 (wah-ee-shyeo-cheu)
Tie = 넥타이 (nek-ta-ee)

ACCESSORIES
Cane = 지팡이 (jee-pang-ee)
Glasses = 안경 (ahn-gyung)
Hat = 모자 (mo-ja)
Necklace = 목걸이 (mok-guhl-ee)
Purse/handbag = 핸드백 (hen-deu-bek)
Ring = 반지 (ban-jee)
Scarf = 스카프 (seu-ka-peu)
Stockings = 스타킹 (seu-ta-king)
Sunglasses = 썬글라스 (ssun-geul-la-seu)
Swimsuit = 수영복 (soo-young-bok)
Wallet = 지갑 (jee-gap)
Watch = 시계 (shi-geh)

***
MEMORIZE THIS PHRASE!
Remember when Granny Kim taught you how to tell someone, “You’re stylish” and “You got swag”? If you don’t, review by watching episode 50:

Let’s say your friend is wearing a really cool shirt. Tell them: 그 셔츠 간지난다! (Geu shyeocheu ganji nandah!) Which means “That shirt is stylish!”

Or perhaps you like their shoes. Then you’d say, “그 신발지난다!” Those shoes are stylish! For other clothes, simply fill in the blank of the following informal phrase:

insert clothing here 간지난다!
(Geu insert clothing here ganji nandah!)
That insert clothing here is stylish! / Those insert clothing here are stylish!

The formal version of this phrase:
그 insert clothing here 간지나요!
(Geu insert clothing here ganji nayo!)
That insert clothing here is stylish! / Those insert clothing here are stylish!

***
FINAL KWOW CONTEST OF THE WEEK:

  1. Complete the phrase “그 _______ 간지난다!” by filling in the blank with the featured vocabulary in this blog. (Write the phrase with 30 articles of clothing:15 times using the informal version and 15 times using the formal version. It’s great practice for you!)
  2. Take a photo of your fantastic work.
  3. Upload the photo onto Twitter.
  4. Copy and paste the link in the comment section below. (Note: Other submissions may not be considered an entry.)
  5. First *five* people to complete the task will win a handwritten letter from their favorite KWOW host! Let us know which host you want to receive a letter from and ask a fun/crazy/yummy question to them.
  6. Have fun! Winners will be contacted via e-mail for their mailing address. Be sure you’ve entered your e-mail address correctly. There is one chance for the letter to get to your house. And if you do not receive the letter within 20 days, we will send you a digital copy :)

      My comment has been saying “Your comment is awaiting moderation” for a while now, and other people can’t see it, so I’m worried if someone else will enter the contest and take my spot :(

    Do I have to have to start a twitter account just to get a letter from Bonja the richest 할머니 (halmeoni) in Korea? I will if I have to, but do I really have to?

      Professor Oh, how/why did you choose the name “Sweet and Tasty”? (That satisfies the “yummy” part of the requirement, right?)
      Thank you to you, and your friends, for teaching us. I have enjoyed learning from your productions.
