In today’s blog we will be learning the phrase ‘세상에’
세상 = World
에 = Watch our grammar video describing 에 here: https://youtu.be/v_DU5d8N0sg
The literal meaning would be “In the world” but we often use in the context “What in the world…(is happening)” and as a common replacement for “Oh my god”
Some examples where this phrase is used are:
세상에! 쇼핑몰에 방탄소년단 봤어! = OMG I just saw BTS at the shopping mall!
세상에! 차가 엄청 밀린데요 출근은 늦겠어요! = Oh my gosh, there is a traffic jam, I’ll be late for work!
음식이 너무 많이 시켰어, 어떻게 다 먹어! 세상에..! = You ordered too much food, how are we going to eat all of them...omg
