#10 - 지루하다

hanokphrases

In today’s blog we will be learning the phrase “지루하다" in Korean!


Here in Singapore, we often use the word “sian” (pronounced see-anne) which originated from a Chinese dialect called Hokkien. It basically means bored or sick and tired of something.


Similarly, “지루하다” is used as an expression of feeling bored or tired of something or doing something. People often get it mixed up with 심심하다 which means bored as there is nothing to do. 


See our example sentences below to get a better grasp of these two phrases.


1)지루하다


수업이 너무 길다, 너무 지루하다 = This lesson is too long, I’m so bored.


일이 많은데 지루해서 하고싶지 않다. = I have so much to do

but it’s so boring I don’t want to do it.

 

2) 심심하다 

 

여기 할게 없는데 너무 심심하다. =There’s nothing to do here, I’m so bored.

 

이 영화 너무 재미없어요, 심심해! = This movie isn’t interesting, it’s boring!.
