In my studies, I came across the following sentence (transcribed by myself, so I may have introduced errors):

이 표현은 일상 대화뿐만 아니라 방송 프로그램에서도 심심상케 들을 수 있는데요.

What is the meaning of 심심상케 here?

1 Answer 1


It's 심심찮게, from 심심찮다, which means "rather often".

(The word is literally a contraction of 심심하지 않다 "not boring", but acquired a different meaning.)
