[Vocabulary] 부대끼다

부대끼다 (bu-dae-ggi-da) – to be affected with/by something or someone

You can use this word for illnesses like coughs and flus, and also for people like teachers and creditors.

Another way to translate 부대끼다 is “to be harrassed with/by”, which makes more sense when used for people.

Important note: when affected with/by something like a cold, use 에; when harrassed by a person or living thing, use 에게.

The weather recently changes a lot so I am affected by a cold.
