Download Available

Do you enjoy watching Korean dramas? Even though watching TV dramas can be too much fun for you to focus on learning something, studying with phrases used frequently in Korean dramas can be very useful and effective. This lesson introduces the phrase “이 시간에 누구지?”


This phrase can be translated to “Who could it be at this hour?” and you can hear this phrase in Korean dramas in situations where someone is visited by another person very late at night or gets an unexpected phone call either very late or very early.

이 = this
시간 = time, moment
-에 = at
누구 = who

    I can not watch the video.Could you help me, please?

  • Larry

    I like how in a lot of these videos at the end you say it’s actually not used that often. Dramas always make Korea look so fun, but I guess it’s like everywhere else most of the time 🙂

    • Yeah that does help in knowing how useful it is 🙂 otherwise it would be odd if you said it LOL!!

  • Rob Johnson

    I was wondering what the vocabulary word that you used in this video was for “formal speech” It sounded like To- “토돈말” but I couldn’t find it in the dictionary.

    Maybe you guys could write some of these handy vocab words on the screen like when you break down the sentences so people can pick up other words that you happen to use as well.

    But great video as always and thank you for all the hard work!

    • Patrice

      It’s 존댓말 (jon-daet-mal). Casual speech is called 반말 (ban-mal)
      And I don’t think they would go this over since its already mentioned numerous times in their lessons, so its assumed to be known 🙂

  • 자흐러
