    안녕하세효! ^^
    이 비디오 좋아했어요! 다음 레슨 기다리고 있어효~ ㅋㅋ 😀

    • ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 그래? ㅎㅎ 다음 레슨에서 만나!

  • Serena

    Huh, that’s easier than I thought! 🙂 Thanks

    • Good 🙂

      “Cuanto costa?” in 이탈리아어, right? 🙂

    • Serena

      Almost. It’s “Quanto costa?” It sounds just like the Spanish “cuanto” though. *g* OMG are you learning Italian, too?

  • Man, you should’ve posted this one before today. I could’ve used this before I went shopping … Ah well, I can give it another try tomorrow. Another excuse to go out and do some more shopping, hehe.

    감사합니다 🙂

    • Haha. I’m still remembering correctly, you have two more days in Seoul, right? It was really nice meeting you yesterday and I hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Seoul 🙂 Do more shopping and use these expressions a lot! Hehe.

    • Mark de jong 🙂
      Hey, I heard that you’re in Korea. Did you meet people at languagecast?
      I moved to a new house last Friday so I couldn’t join. I hope you have a really great trip. 😀

    Good day everyone~!

    I am Zhane from the Philippines. I just duscovered your website last February 23, 2010. Though it is just so recent when I discovered it, it really helped me a lot understanding and constructing Korean sentences. Your podcasts and PDF files are very very useful. I saved your those lessons of yours in mp3 format on my mobile phone and I listen to it every morning while eating my breakfast and even on the bus on my way to school. I’ve been studying 한국어 and 한글 since November last year. Though I don’t have all the necessary tools like books and dictionary, I still pursue studying Korean language. I find it very difficult to construct a Korean sentence till I found talktomeinkorean.com. So I wanna say 감사합니다~! I already told my highschool friends about this site and they are really curious so they dropped by to see what’s eating me these days. And boy they are really grateful like me~!

    I personally like Hyunwoo Sun Oppa and KyeongEun Unnie..They are very very effective educators. I call them my 선생님~! Though I find their lessons very fun and interesting, But I sometimes feel uneasy whenever they set up a little fight as a joke. It sometimes make me doubt whether they are really on good terms or not. Anyways, if it is they’re style of teaching then so be it.. HAHAHA..

    I have so many questions regarding Korean language but I think I should compile it first. I typed this comment on-the-spot and I am really excited to send this so my mind is clouded with excitement~!

    I hope you wont get tired of producing such useful learning materials for beginners like me.. Thank you again~~~! ^^

    • Zhane 🙂
      안녕하세요. 반가워요!!! ^^
      I am happy to hear that it’s helpful. Feel free to ask any questions.
      By the way Hyunwoo and I are on good terms. It’s just joke to make lessons fun. XD At least I think so. XD
      감사합니다. 😀

    저는 이 비디오 즐겼어요! 한국에서 만화를 얼마예요? 비싸요? 저는 만화를 사고 싶어요…
    근데 돈이 없어요… 그리고 미국의 책방들 한국 만화 있어요? 잘 몰라요…

    • 만화책은 보통 4,500원 정도 해요. 하지만, 만화책마다 가격이 달라요.

      만화책은 시리즈로 되어 있어서 모두 모으려면 비싸요. ㅠ.ㅠ

      인터넷 서점에서 찾을 수 있을 거예요. 😀

  • Heeey you guys! 🙂 Im so happy to see next lesson of korean language 😉
    Thank you so much for this webpage again hehe 😉 You know I wrote about this webpage in my blog hehe 😛 (small ad haha 😉 ) so if anyone want to see it come to http://luukki.wordpress.com 😉
    Gamsahamnida! 🙂

    Kyeong-eun Choi!

    You better be in good terms with Hyunwoo because I don’t like those jokes! and what does XDD means? Are you laughing at Hyunwoo or what? S_R_C

    • Jinseokjin

      ‘XD’ dosen’t always mean laughing at somebody in Korea. I think she just wanted to show her smile, not laughing action. Although they give and take a lot of jokes, they are still good friends.

    • Tze Lim

      wow.. sounds serious. jokes are for fun. it is really interesting in my opinion. i wonder if it is scripted because the way they spoke to each other sounded spontaneous and natural. very well done. one of the best i’ve ever come across although i don’t listen to the radio or watch tv very often. haha. keep up the good work. hwaiting!! (no hangeul at work) >.<

  • i love the new 오만원!! so pretty ~~ ^^ thanks for the lesson!
    now, if only i had some money to go to the 문구점 to buy some stationery…….. ㅋㅋ

  • Simone

    안녕하세요 선생님

    조선에서 얼마간 돈을 있어요. 그러나 통화가 전이에요. 왜 원이 아니에요?


  • so much easier than USD haha…but out of curiousity, do koreans ever say 이십 오천원 instead of 이만 오천원?

    • No, we never say 이십 오천원. We should say 이만 오천원.

  • Meriluca

    I have a question! How do u say a million? How does it translate? Thanks!!

    • a million = 백만 [baek-man]

      Thanks for your comment.

    • Meriluca

      Oh, I realised that now..”baek man”
      Ok, now I’m a lil confused about how to say 250 000
      thks! ^^

  • Guest

    • carrot

      That’s where I learned 오백 원. 🙂

  • Alan

    Can sb please explain me why 25,000 won is 이 만 오 천 원.? It’s the first time I comment.. will be so happy if I get the answer 🙂 tnx

    • KyungHwa Sun

      이만 (20,000) + 오천 (5,000) = 25,000

  • Alicia

    I hope you are able to help, this forum is quite old. I am going to Seoul for the second time soon. I am fairly comfortable counting money. However When there is tax and you end up with weird totals such as 109,000.36 won how would this be said? I picked this number at random. Most of the time I used my credit card there so I wasn’t too concerned with the price, but it would be nice to know. Thank you!!

      “A single won is divided into 100전 jeon, the monetary subunit. The jeon is
      no longer used for everyday transactions, and appears only in foreign
      exchange rates.”

    9,999 won = 구천 구백 구십구원
    99,999 won = 구만 구천 구백 구십구원

    • Rachel joy recaña

  • Alex Bjarkadottir
