    I’m curious about the use of 중에. How about the 나중에? also how would I distinguish 중식(lunch) and 중식 (Shortened term for Chinese food)?

    I heard that “가운데” word in this 문장:
    “오늘은 전국이 대체로 맑은 가운데, 아침엔 어제보다 춥겠지만 낮부턴 기온이 오르겠습니다.”
    What’s the difference between 가운데 and 중?
    Although they both mean “in the middle of”, “가운데” is not very often to be heard in conversations or dramas. Does it usually be used in news or formal literature?

    • Seokjin Jin

      When it comes to -은/는 가운데, you can understand it as -은/는 동안에 that means “while”.

    • 陸普世

      “가운데”보다 “동안에” 더 많이 쓰나요?

    • Seokjin Jin

      I think “동안에” is used more.

    • 陸普世

      Ok~ ^^”
