What does out of this world mean? Let’s find out, but first we will listen to today’s conversation. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘out of this world’가 무슨 뜻인지 알아 보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

Out of this world
Jen: Hey, do you know of any good Thai restaurants around here?
Jason: Yes I do! There is one just a block away. Their food is better than good. It’s out of this world! It’s so delicious!
Jen: Really? Their food is out of this world? Man, I’m definitely going there! Thanks!

제가 태국 음식을 먹고 싶어서 Jason 에게 혹시 근처에 태국 음식 잘하는 식당을 아냐고 묻습니다. “Hey, do you know of any good Thai restaurants around here?” 그러자, Jason은 “Yes I do! There is one just a block away. 응, 알아! 한 블록만 가면 있어. Their food is better than good. It’s out of this world! It’s so delicious! 그 집 음식은 그냥 보통 맛있는 정도가 아니야. 이 세상 맛이 아닐 정도로 훌륭하다고. 정말 맛있어!”라고 극찬을 하는데요. 그러자 저는 “Really? Their food is out of this world? Man, I’m definitely going there! Thanks! 그래? 그 정도로 맛있어? 그 식당에 꼭 가봐야겠는데.”라고 말합니다.

Now keep today’s expression, ‘out of this world’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

Today’s expression is out of this world. If something is out of this world, it is fantastic and extremely good. This phrase is used to indicate that something is not normal in a positive way. Out of this world를 직역하면 ‘이 세상 밖의 것.’ 즉 ‘세상에 없을 만큼 너무도 훌륭하다’, ‘굉장하다’ 라는 의미입니다. 무엇이 정말 좋거나 대단할 때 쓸 수 있는 표현이죠. 특히 Out of this world는 대체로 긍정적인 의미로 씁니다.


오늘 본문에서 Jason은 제게 태국 음식을 정말 잘하는 식당을 추천해줬습니다. "그 음식은 그냥 보통 맛있는 정도가 아니라 정말 훌륭하다"고 했습니다. “Their food is better than good. It’s out of this world! It’s so delicious!”이라고요.

그럼 예문을 통해 오늘 표현을 좀 더 자세히 알아보겠습니다. “You won’t believe it but her talent is out of this world!”는 “믿기 어렵겠지만 그녀의 재능은 특출하다.” 라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example. “This movie was out of this world! It was so impressive!”라는 말은 “이 영화 정말 대단하고 인상적이었다!”라는 뜻이 됩니다. ‘Out of this world’, 이 표현 잘 기억하시고요. 마지막으로 오늘의 대화를 다시 한 번 들어보겠습니다. Now that you know what today’s expression means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.
