시원하다 - Can't you use the word "refreshing" in the same context o.O

Author The Korean Manual ( ago)
I agree with you on all of them! Also the word "역시" is weird to translate into English ("as expected" doesn't really feel right) and like some people said before "답답하다" too :)

Author gaby vallejos ( ago)
Omgg hahaha it's similar in spanishh 💕

Author pikachuiswatchingyou ( ago)
A lot of asian languages are based on sensations, perceptions. So one word is enough to get the full meaning : Oooh tall ! Ooooh cheap ! So that's why some words have very elaborate meanings.

Author Stephen Fox ( ago)
Fun and informative video. Awesome top, by the way. Thanks for the great content! 😃

Author Bloopys Kay ( ago)
This helped me a lot thanks :D

Author essennagerry ( ago)
1:59 - I think we have a word for that in my native tongue - noun - poyava, verb - poyavi.

Author Christina Pariseau ( ago)
I agree

Author digitalversicolor ( ago)
What about "developed"?

Author Jeanju ( ago)
생겼어 could be 'manifested'? At least in certain contexts.. also I always thought 시원하다 equates to 'refreshing' or something... idk lol

Author No No ( ago)
what about sugoi

Author FanofRoyQiu ( ago)
Enjoying the massage? "refreshing" "energizing" "relief"

Author Amine Slayer ( ago)
that sounds so wrong....

Author Tanya Stowe ( ago)
What is the best way to learn Korean?

Author Ilhaan Dini ( ago)
your pronunciation is ridiculous

Author ashfromny ( ago)
But what's the point in having one word for an idea or concept if it's the same amount of syllables or more than the English equivalent? 😨

Author Whitney Titus ( ago)
I disagree about the message bit...Maybe not in proper English but in some hood circles, most things that are good can be expressed with a simple YYYAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSS.

Author Kaitie ( ago)
I think another word is 느끼해... like that guy is 느끼해... this soup is 느끼해... I FEEL SO 느끼해! I don't know the equivalent English word... greasy? No... Gross? No... WE NEED THIS WORD!

Author Milcah Theodor ( ago)

Author Strawberry Cloud ( ago)

Author EM GEORGIAA ( ago)

Author Violet Rose ( ago)
How long have you been learning Korean? What inspired you to move to Korea? What kind of work do you do there?

Author Mintyoongi_KPOP ( ago)
sorry this question might be dumb but are u asian or american or something else

Author PyungJae Choi ( ago)
it's interesting. i didn't know it. good job

Author Skye Walker ( ago)
For the massage one:


Author Katherine S ( ago)
How did you learn Korean ? Did you go to a school or just naturally because of the need to communicate ?

Author sshironodeath toresu ( ago)

Author Alex Omion ( ago)

Author Courtney C ( ago)
1. she
2. won
3. nae

1. it
2. feels
3. good

sounds like the same number of syllables :)

Author kuroichan101 ( ago)
If english had words for the opposite of somethings then the language wouldnt be that easy. Its much easier to just add more words that already are easy to change the meaning of something. Can you imagine having to learn a new word just to say you dont know? Thats just too much in my opinion.

Author Trista Perry ( ago)
she is literally perfect

Author Bunnii ( ago)
I always just say "iono"

Author Shiekha 7 ( ago)
We have all these in Arabic language 😂👌🏼

Author Abdulmajeed Mohabat ( ago)
maybe you can say (i don't know = uninformed)?

Author SashaWang ( ago)
Isn't "unknown" the opposite of know??

Author Reba ( ago)
the second word reminds me of "manifest"

Author Roo Wook ( ago)
I really appreciate the language videos Megan! 감사합니다 😊

Author Gab Caguioa ( ago)
is the last word similar to refreshing?? 😄

Author Lovegoesalongway ( ago)
I love you this video. It's easy to learn Korean from you😘

Author kcanter54 ( ago)
Hey guys ^^ I am currently studying abroad in Japan and FINALY about to go study abroad in Japan, but I ran into a financial problem, if anyone has just .40cents to donate it would be so greatly appreciated!! I explain my full situation on my page, Thank you so much for your time, sorry to bother anyone!
link to my page:

Author Olga Cruz ( ago)
I think this might have to do with how the language is built. English uses the Latin-based alphabet, vs Korean Hangul, which is a Featural linear alphabet...

Author Mondoshawn ( ago)
Megan is deleting comments on her other video, omg

Author Levi Jaeger ( ago)
I don't know = Dunno
To become/appear = Creation (??? we do have a word)
It feels so good = Ecstasy

Author CG Lim ( ago)
와우!! 한국어 발음이 너무 자연스럽고...예뻐요~ ^^

Author bubls ( ago)
In Swedish we have a word just like 시원하다 which is skönt. It's used the same way :)

Author Stephanie Anne ( ago)
Omg for a while I thought she was holding an eyelash curler lol it was glasses

Author shawty imma party till the sundown ( ago)
시원하다 siweonhada is kinda like refreshing, right?

Author Anne Jo ( ago)
oh another really good word we dont have in english is 남자 친구 사람 or 여자 친구 사람. we have so many misunderstandings in english cause we dont have the one word that describes that we have a guy friend or a friend who is a girl.

Author Sydney Lilrams ( ago)
What about the word 'unsure' instead of the phrase 'I don't know' ?

Author AD AD ( ago)
Know- Unknown ???

Author Rainbow Bulle Sauvage ( ago)
happy new year! !!

Author cuterstar ( ago)
It would be pretty fantastic if you make a series about current trends in Korea. I live in Korea but I'm leaving soon and it'll be a little harder knowing what's trending and popular after I leave~ And since trends change so fast, it's easy to miss out. Love your videos!

Author Lilly Majors ( ago)
you should do another video with top dog😂😂

Author Rina Sôma ( ago)
Megan Where are you ! we miss you girl

Author Sude E ( ago)
Where did u learn that freaking good korean?

Author Nanu ( ago)
doesn't siwon mean cool. so isn't the word just refreshing?

Author Davidvseverything ( ago)
2:42 we do... It's called broke! lol.

Author Let's Talk with La'Precious ( ago)
I agree with what you said. Sometimes English can be too wordy when explaining things.

Author BelanceM ( ago)
I'm laugh in so hard because this is such first world problems lmfaooooo. But I feel you girl sometimes standout words is too much. We just need that one go to word and that's it.

Author Taylor Corprew ( ago)
Can you do hair videos?? I want to see you do a video on your wash routine. Also maybe you can videos on korean hairstyles and have you or one of your do your hair?? And my last question is are you natural?? Even if you are not natural I would still like the hair videos. Thanks.

Author Liese Haley ( ago)
Good Massage="Yes! Right There!

Author chim-chim smile ( ago)
for the last one there are the words pleasure and satisfaction

Author Alison Iberger ( ago)
You should make a video on Korean lessons I would watch them if this was a series you have on your channel 💙💜

Author Dorothy x ( ago)
Megan, May I ask you something?
Since you are a vegan I'd like to ask if there are any vegan meals in Korean restaurants? Or vegan places generally

Author imjustaregularasshole ( ago)
Fair warning: I'm about to use the F word excessively. Please don't flag me I'm just making a point lmao 😁

Consider this: Yes, those words are convenient and English could stand to be simplified, however, let's not forget about the amazing thing that is the word "Fuck".

Yes, it can be perceived as aggressive and crude but have you ever actually thought about how many parts of speech it can be used in?

"Fuck you."
"The fuck."
"I'm fucking trying."
"I don't fucking know."
"Wanna fuck?"
"Are you fucking with me?"
"Fucking hell."
"God fucking damnit."
"That fucking thing."
"Right fucking there."
"Conceited fuck."
"Cranberry fuck balls."

The possibilities are endless and I really like words that are fluid like that. It can be an adjective, noun, verb, etc. It's so versatile and I get a lot of people think it's crass but personally, I fucking love the fucking shit out of the fucking word fuck. 😂

Author TheBest Sanchez215 ( ago)
can u do Koreans reacting to drake

Author Marissa Torres ( ago)
So I've been watching your videos for a few years now. Does Chonunmigooksaram mean "I am someone from America" if so I feel late

Author Cesar Perez ( ago)
You literally kept saying "get" for 생기다. That's a good hint as to what an English equivalent is.

Author Jose Morales ( ago)
Lo mismo con el español. Tener que decir varias palabras y en coreano solo una para decir lo mismo.

Author Big Moe ( ago)
Megan you like howt stuff, have you tried samyang extremely spicy chicken flavour??? I think they are vegan

Author XXIflowerchild ( ago)
Hey Megan will you be doing any FAD videos soon? It's been a while since you did one and I miss them, you have a wicked sense of fashion!

Author KimSeeun ChiChi ( ago)
megan how do we get in a korean college for full 4 years?

Author burningbabel ( ago)
Is that a word that would be used when a man and a woman know...the boingy boingy times?

Author Jovana Fung ( ago)
The second one is like "materialize," but a simpler English version would be "become." Even "crop up," or "be" works depending on the scenario.

Author Hoe B ( ago)
every time i see this bitch my skin shakes in disgust. she tries too hard to be asian specifically korean.

Author 4eign ( ago)
You should do a video on where to shop for foreigners coming to korea soon please :)

Author Lee kh ( ago)
Some people seem to be misunderstanding her point.
Even though some English words can express the meanings but what she is saying is that no English one word can express various meanings like Korean word.

Refreshing can be used to express 시원하다, but not like in Korean, in which 시원하다 is used in so many situation.

1. As she mentioned, when your body sudden relaxes and you get some good and comforting feeling.
2. When you are very much satisfied mentally.
3. When you eat some cold food or drinks, and expresses the feeling of literally cold..
4. When you eat some hot boiled food. Even though the food is hot, you get a feeling that your body relaxes physically.
We say that no other country will say like this: speaking "cool" when eating "hot" food.

And some other situations that I cannot think out right now.

And as some people already mentioned, English words don't have independent words signifying....
the day after tomorrow,
the day after the day after tomorrow.

the day before yesterday.
the day before the day before yesterday.
the day before the day before the day before yesterday.

Author Lee kh ( ago)
Her Korean word pronunciation is so different from most foreigners. The pronunciation is genuinely Korean. I don't know how it was possible. Most foreigners, even though speak fluently in Korean but with thick foreign accents and pronunciations.

Author Noah Johnson ( ago)
This is unrelated to your video, but did you get a silver youtube button when you passed 100,000 subscribers.... a long long time ago?

Author simona berruto ( ago)
in Italy we say "boh" (bo) to say "I don't know"

Author Britaney Chanel ( ago)
I wish she had a podcast that I could listen to everyday! I know she's sooo busy tho. Happy New Year Megan!

Author Destiny E ( ago)
I love your shirt!! Where'd you get it from?

Author Savy telly Time ( ago)
Another one we totally need, is an overall word that means go, go away, he go/she go, they go, all go, hurry and go etc. You know? It kind of bugs me that we don't have one we have to word whole sentences to just say... go.

Author V Blondin ( ago)
Hey, is there a Korean word for swimming pool?

Author Vanessa Rahimi ( ago)
*finishes last final*
Me: ahh shiwane

Author hanainers ( ago)
I think "shiwonhada" is often translated in tv shows w subtitles as "refreshing". So a massage can be refreshing, a nice cold drink in summer can be refreshing, etc. But yea the essence of the korean version is more broad

Author Elle Zee ( ago)
I wish the font you used to write those words in the video was more legible - I wanted to write them down but because I am a beginner learning Korean, I couldn't recognize a lot of the characters....

Author Howl ( ago)
For the third one, what about bliss? Ecstasy? Euphoria? Relief?

Author Kathleen Jeffery ( ago)
But if they are the same number of spoken syllables, does it matter how many words it involves?

Author mish k ( ago)
third word= relaxing, refreshing. we do have a one phrase word for it in english. you can say it when you drink cold water on a really hot day, or when you're eating cold rice noodle.

Author a.f.k TRIO ( ago)
Can you please do the spicy Korean noodle challenge!
