석진 went inline-skating just for you!

In this series, called “7 Random Korean Expressions”, we introduce seven (or sometimes more) random Korean expressions along with relavant sample sentences. If you are a beginner level learner, you can start by studying the 7 main expressions that are introduced, and if you already know those expressions, you can also study with the sample phrases used in the video.

    안녕하세요,선생님들 ^-^

    이 좋은 비디오를 줘서 감사합니다.
    그리고, 저는 질문이 있어요.도와 주세요.

    “휴식을 취하다” – take a rest ( Is it a fixed phrase? as I saw in a book but it is translated “취하다” into “get drunk”.)

    In PDF,there is a sentence ” 도로 위로 꽃들이 놓여져 있습니다.”
    – I am wondering what does this “놓여지다” mean? Does it mean ” bloom ” ?

    가르쳐 주세요.
    감사합니다!!! ^-^

    • Caddie : )

      취(醉)하다 means “to get drunk” and 취(取)하다 means “to obtain”. And yes, 휴식을 취하다 is a fixed expression : )

      And 놓다 [no-ta] means “to put something down” “to put something somewhere” “to place something” and 놓여지다 is the passive voice of the verb : )

      Hope this helps!

      현우씨, 감사합니다. ^-^

      So which means ” 취하다” got two meaning,right? And it only can be diffrentiated by chinese character (“醉”or”取”) ,but in korean character is the same. Am I right?

      May I explain to you instead? You’re right!
      현우씨가 정말 잘 설명해주었습니다!

      Plus, 놓여지다 means “are placed.” (도로 위로: along the path)

      놓다 (to place)
      놓이다 (to be placed) “PASSIVE -이-” is added.
      놓이+어지다=놓여지다 (to be placed) “also PASSIVE”

      -어지다 stresses the PASSIVE meaning of “-이-“, but 놓이다 and 놓여지다 are basically the same. So mostly -어지다 is not necessary and sometime sounds “too much” to me.

      Affixes that make a verb into its passive version include “-이-“, “-히-“, “-리-“, “-기-.” All verbs fall into one of these four groups.

      잡다 (to catch) / 잡히다(to be caught) / 잡혀지다
      쓸다 (to sweep) / 쓸리다(to be swept) / 쓸려지다
      쫓다 (to chase) / 쫓기다(to be chased) / 쫓겨지다
