Exactly 30 years after Seoul Olympic Games in 1988, Korea is finally hosting another Olympic Games event, this time in PyeongChang.

So for everyone who is interested in watching the PyeongChang Winter Olympics and Paralympic Winter Games, we’ve prepared this video to show you where the county of PyeongChang is located in relation to other cities that you might already know.

Today’s question is about the meaning of the phrase "웃음기 싹 뺐어요.” To understand what this sentences means, you need to know both 웃음기 and 싹. First, 웃음기 is a combination of 웃음 (laughter) + 기 (氣 = energy, vibe). So together it means the “atmosphere/vibe of laughter”. And 싹 means “completely” in this case, so together with 싹 뺐어요, it means that you’ve removed it completely. All together 웃음기 싹 뺐어요 means that you are being serious or made something serious for a change. Watch this video lesson to learn about some other words where the -기 ending has a similar role!
