우리집 literally translates to "our house," and is pronounced "uri-jeep." It's one of the most commonly used phrases representative of Korea's collectivist culture.

As Anne Babe explains on BBC Travel, "‘Uri’ isn’t a mere grammar point, it’s a cultural canon that captures the very essence of a nation... a house – even one you pay for – is not yours; it’s ours... Just because I might own or belong to something individually doesn’t mean others do not have a similar experience of ownership or belonging. To say ‘my’ is almost egocentric." (How the Korean Language was Designed to Unify).
