How to make a request in Korean

By: Super contributor

There were many lessons we learned from the K-drama “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” and one of them was how to tell a receptionist that you need a room, for whatever it is you need it for.

This is the topic of the third episode of the Inquirer podcast “Let’s Talk Oppa.” The Korean word “Juseyo” is one of the most useful terms you can learn. It means “Please give me.”

You can especially use this word when eating in a restaurant to request for something politely. This phrase is perfect for travelers who are familiar with Korean food. They can easily request for kimchi, naengmyeon, bibimbap and samgyeopsal and the servers will understand them.
