It is raining a lot in Korea, especially from late summer to early fall. 

Because of it, there are often cancellation of various outdoor events☔️


In today’s post, let’s find out how Koreans say “be rained out / off”!

✔우취 is short for ‘우천취소’, which means ‘be rained out’ or ‘be rained off’.

This term refers to when outdoor events such as sports games or concerts get canceled due to rain.

During the transition from summer to fall, outdoor events like concerts, festivals, and sports games are common. Due to Korea’s frequent rain during this season, the use of this term increased.
