 On the first day of eased indoor masking, a 20-something worker surnamed Shin at a startup company in Seoul started her work day with her mask on as usual -- and she was not the only one.
*ease: 덜해지다; 편해지다
 "Eight out of 10 people in our office were wearing masks when I walked into the office. I am also one of those who intend to keep masking,” Shin said. “(Masking) became a habit that makes me feel secure. I feel more comfortable with it."
*intend to: ~할 작정이다, ~하려고 생각하다
*secure: 안심하는, 확실한
 As of 12 a.m. Monday, South Korea's 27-month indoor mask mandate was lifted everywhere except for medical facilities, places designated as high risk, such as nursing homes, and public transportation.
 However, wearing masks seem to have become a part of many people’s lives, as the mandate has been in effect for the last two years.
