Anyone who understand 용색하다, stop what you are thinking now (that is if there’s anyone who understands it, ㅋㅋㅋ) . It’s not what you think it is. I’m referring to the word itself, not the act.
용색 sexual union [intercourse] ―하다 have sexual intercourse
It was part of our “10 words a day” project. And was taken from the drama “여우야 뭐하니”
I showed our 100-word list to a Korean friend a few days ago and she told me that ever her didn’t know 용색하다. I told my study buddy about it and I said that I’ll ask other Korean friends if they know this word or not.
It’s not easy to ask about this word because of it’s meaning. But nonetheless I was curious, so I decided to ask a new Korean acquaintance in our university.
But that guy, Paul, didn’t just simply say that he doesn’t know the word, rather he STRONGLY insisted that that word doesn’t exist at all. I was confident that it does exist so I offered a bet of 50 pesos (about a dollar) if I can prove that it does exist. But I guess he was more confident than me for he made a counter offer of 1,000 pesos.
I then ask another Korean acquaintance. He also doesn’t know the word, but luckily he have a dictionary with him, so he looked it up and poof! There’s 용색.
I immediately showed it to Paul. 천 페스 주세요!
Unfortunately he is a liar! hahaha. So I’m not a thousand peso richer. But the look on his face after I showed the dictionary entry to him was priceless. ^^
I love this word. It’s gonna make me richer!!!
