Interlude (5) and Suneung Countdown – 수능대박

D-Day Minus 3

Suneung Dae Pak (수능대박)


Dae-Pak (대박), means ‘awesome,’ ‘excellent,’ ‘jackpot,’ and so suneung dae-pak (수능대박) can be translated as ‘suneung jackpot,’ or, ‘have an awesome suneung.’ Of course, you still need the ‘fighting’ spirit. (화이팅!)


As someone permanently struggling with Korean these are my notes on words and phrases I find useful and which are usually not in a dictionary.  Any amendments, recommendations or errors, please let me know.

    We’ve been told to go easy on our kids that have these exams. They look totally run down, really tired and stressed out to the max. Last week we had English exams at school and I just about spoon fed them the answers, they obviously were overloaded with study for something bigger.

    After the exam I let them study, they were so grateful for the opportunity. I just sat there and drew a picture. Their life is anything but easy this time of year!
