KPOP Word of the Week - 세상/World
I know it’s been a while since I’ve done this. I apologize for being away so long. Thankfully, Block B released a new song yesterday for the soundtrack of Ghost (유령). I had to post about it because I love it so much.
After listening to it many times, I began to hear a word repeated. That word is 세상 (saesang), which means “world”.
P.O. raps 세상 in the fourth verse of the song. He uses the form 세상이, meaning “the world”. 이 (ee/i) is a particle meant to denote the subject of a sentence. The full sentence that P.O. raps is as follows, “세상이 날 버린게 아냐” (saesangi nal beoringae anya). 세상이 날 버린게 아냐 means “it’s not that the world cast me away.”
세상 is mentioned again in the next verse sung by Taeil. He says “이젠 날 세상에 던져줘”, meaning “now throw me into the world.” 세상 appears in the form of 세상에 (saesangae). 에(ae) is a particle denoting time, so 세상에 means “in the world” here.
세상 appears many more times throughout the song. Listen carefully to see if you can hear it.
Here is a link to the full lyrics in Korean (Hangul and romanization) and English. This truly is a beautiful song.
