What was the very FIRST word you learned in Korean?

For me, it was 그때. I was watching the Korean drama  소울메이트 when I picked up the phrase after hearing it so much :D
What was your first word or phrase and where did you learn it?

I think it was "사랑해", followed by "오빠" and "안녕하세요". I learned these from either subtitles or comments on Kpop videos.

The first word I learned on my own, from watching a video without subtitles, was 여자 :). I was very happy at that time, it felt magical.

The first word I got was 물 ... which is sad. But it's the one I found easiest to remember, that I keep repeating to try to get my dad to give me water. 물이에요!!!! Which makes no sense and is totally childish, but it gets me a glass. Hahaha
