Hey Korean Mission: 시간 (Time)

The word for Hey Korean Mission on Catch The Wave – Arirang Radio this week was 시간 (time). They gave 2 examples:

그 학생은 시간이 없다는 핑계로 숙제를 안 했다.
The student did not do his homework under the excuse that he had no time.

이 일은 시간이 많이 걸리지만 보람 있다.
This work takes up a lot of time but is worth it.

I sent in this sentence, 5 minutes before the show:

현우 선생님의 얘기를 듣고 있으면 재미있어서 시간 가는 줄 모르겠다.
Listening to Mr. HyunWoo speaking, I don’t realize the passing of time because it’s so entertaining.

HyunWoo 선생님 said thank you for the compliment and joked that I was the 3rd person who said it other then his wife and his son. He was just being humble, of course, considering he is a YouTube personality and a host of TV show in Korea.

For Korean buzzword section, DJ JaeMin and HyunWoo 선생님 explained about 아무 말 대잔치 (literally: a huge party of saying anything), which I understood as ‘nonsensical talk/conversation’, and 국민+noun (national + noun), for example 국민 여동생 (‘national little sister’, a nickname for popular young teenage female celebrities with clean image, for example IU and Suzy).

아무 말 대잔치

아무 말 대잔치 on Naver English Dictionary

I looked up the term 아무 말 대잔치 on Naver English Dictionary and it seems that K-pop idols often use it to point out that someone is talking nonsense. ###
