When somebody is very good at something (e.g. a video game, a musical instrument) they may be called 고수.
- 가라테 고수가 한 남자를 구타해서 죽였다. A karate master beat a man to death.
- 그리고 학생이 고수가 돼. Thus, the student becomes the master.
- 2:2 한국인 vs 외국인 슈퍼 고수 매치 2경기 2:2 Korean vs Foreigner Super Gosu Match, second game
What words are typically used to describe situations of not being 고수? For example, what do we call somebody that tries very hard, but doesn't do so well. What is a n00b (초보자)?
