한 장 주세요 (Han jang juseyo): One ticket, please.

One ticket, please

Today’s phrase will let you enjoy the many cultural exhibits, shows, and sites Korea has to offer.

The first part of the phrase is 한 장 (han jang), or “one ticket.” 한 (Han) is “one.” Actually, 하나 (hana) is “one,” but it changes to 한 (han) because of the counter added onto the end of the number. The counter that’s added is 장 (jang), or “ticket.”
Next we have 주세요 (juseyo), which means “please.”

서울 가는 기차표 한 장 주세요. (Seoul ganeun gichapyo han jang juseyo.): One train ticket to Seoul, please.
