How do I say this in Korean?

You are the sweetest thing (I've ever met).

:) Thanks in advance. If it's not possible to translate the words between parenthesis without making corrections to the sentence, then, I ask you to write it two times, one with it and one without it. :)

    Hi! :)



    In Korean, people just don't use the word "sweet" (달콤하다) to describe a person, and I can't think up its equivalent, so I translated it into
    • "사랑스럽다," (lovely)
    • "소중하다," (precious) and,
    • "귀엽다." (cute)
    also, for the "thing," since Korean does not apply "thing" (것) to people, I have two options, and those are
    • "사람," (human, but it does not have any academical sense) and,
    • "여자" (woman)
      (fyi, although it is my personal standard, the word "woman" in saying this sentence sound more macho)
    • or, just eliminate "thing" (like "you are the most sweetest")
    So the result would be,
    1. (lovely+woman) 너는 (내가 지금까지 만난 사람 중에) 가장 사랑스러운 여자야
    2. (lovely+human) 너는 (내가 지금까지 만난 사람 중에) 가장 사랑스러운 사람이야
    3. (just lovely) 너는 (내가 지금까지 만난 사람 중에) 가장 사랑스러워
    4. (precious+woman) 너는 (내가 지금까지 만난 사람 중에) 가장 소중한 여자야
    5. (precious+human) 너는 (내가 지금까지 만난 사람 중에) 가장 소중한 사람이야
    6. (just precious) 너는 (내가 지금까지 만난 사람 중에) 가장 소중해
    7. (cute+woman) 너는 (내가 지금까지 만난 사람 중에) 가장 귀여운 여자야
    8. (cute+human) 너는 (내가 지금까지 만난 사람 중에) 가장 귀여운 사람이야
    9. (just cute) 너는 (내가 지금까지 만난 사람 중에) 가장 귀여워
    Also, I would not recommend the elimination of "I've ever met" for it would sound awkward.

    Hope it would help :)
    (and not too late lol)
