Word of the day: 시원섭섭하다 ~ to feel relief and sorrow at the same time

Well, it’s all in the title.

It is a verb that helps you explain a very distinct emotion which would take several words to explain in many other languages.

One of my previous language partners used it in a kakaotalk conversation to describe the feeling after graduation; being happy, but also sad at the same time.
