In today’s blog we will be learning the phrase 답답하다 in Korean!
Often mixed with a sigh (어휴), 답답하다 is used as an expression of frustration and Koreans use it commonly in their daily speech when problem/issue arises. It also includes some meaning of “disbelief” / “can’t believe it” in a negative way.
It is also used to mean “stuffy” during hot weather or similar situations when one is feeling trapped.
어휴 또 틀렸어? 진짜 답답하다. = You made a mistake again? I’m really frustrated/i can’t believe you.
버스가 너무 느려요, 답답해요! = The bus is too slow, i’m so frustrated.
이렇게 많은 사람들이 담기엔 여기 공간이 너무 좁아요, 숨 쉬기 힘들고 답답해요! = The space here is too small for so many people, it’s hard to breathe and it’s feels stuffy!
