Korean New Coinage: 웃프다 (Funny and Sad)

Screen Shot 2019-08-09 at 12.44.36 PM.png

신조어 (New Coinage)

웃프다: Something is funny enough to laugh, but hurts feeling on the one hand 

As we live, we encounter a situation in which we feel multiple emotions at the same time. These complicated situations are hard to be defined with only a single emotion – sadness, fun, or anger. We sometimes feel fun or angry in the midst of sadness and suddenly start to smile.  Of the many combinations of various emotions, the word referring to fun and laughter that turns into sadness is called “웃프다 (funny and sad at the same time).” It is a combination of “웃-” from “웃기다 (funny)” and “-프다” from “슬프다 (sad).” You can say “웃픈 날이다 (Today is a funny and a sad day)”, “웃픈 이야기 (a story that is both funny and sad)” and “웃퍼요 (someone/something that is funny and sad).”

Directly Modifying with ᄇ Irregular Descriptive Verbs

ᄇ irregular are converted a bit differently than other descriptive verbs. Instead of converting ᄇ into 워, it’s converted into 운 to make the direct modifier.

춥다 (to be cold [weather]), 차갑다 (to be cold [touch])

CONJUGATION:
춥다 – 추 – 추운 (a cold [weather])
차갑다 – 차가 – 차가운 (a cold [touch])

Example sentences

많은 사람들은 추운 날씨를 좋아하지 않아요. Many people don’t like cold weather.

 

Directly Modifying with Descriptive Verbs – Special Case I

Anytime the stem of a descriptive verb ends with a ᄅ final consonant, the ᄅ is just changed to a ᄂ.

달다 (to be sweet), 길다 (to be long)

CONJUGATION:
달다 – 달 – 단 (a sweet)
길다 – 길 – 긴 (a long)

Example sentences

저는 초콜릿, 과자 등 단 것을 좋아해요. I like sweets like chocolate, cookies, and so on.

 

Directly Modifying with Descriptive Verbs – Special Case II

Another special case is when the descriptive verb ends with 있다 or 없다. With these types you can simply add 는 to the stem.

맛있다 (to be tasty), 맛없다 (to be tasteless)

CONJUGATION:
맛있다 – 맛있 – 맛있는 (tasty)
맛없다 – 맛없 – 맛없는 (tasteless)

Example sentences

저는 가족과 함께 맛있는 음식을 많이 먹었어요. I ate a lot of delicious food with my family.

저는 맛없는 것부터 먹어요. I eat the bad-tasting ones first.
