Some 'korean' slang and word pt.1


I would like to create an entry about some words which often used and heard among Kpop fans or those who are into Korean entertainment. This won't be full list but at least all basic stuff I had in my head.

Common words which easy to pronounce and speak. I myself love to randomly blurt all those random korean word.

Oppa ( 오빠 )
= Brother for sibling but this word only applicable for female toward male / lover also use this often. Girlfriend would call their boyfriend oppa. Sounds loving.

Hyung ( 형 )
= This is the one use by male to call for an older male to show respect. Or little brother calling his older brother. Cute !

Noona ( 누나 )
= This is for younger male calling an older female. Or little brother calling his sister. Woman should never use this call their older sister okay.

Dongsaeng ( 동생 )
= Little brother or sister. Aha.... Unlike japanese word, Korean use this to imply both gender.

Eomma ( 엄마 )
= Mother ....

Appa ( 아빠 )
= Father ...

Chingu ( 친구 ) 
= Friend . Or if you want to say my good friend you can just say joheun chingu or johchin ( slang ).

Eottokke ( 어똑해 )
= What to do.
This one seriously often be heard if you love to watch K-drama.

Omona ( 오모나 ) 
= Oh my goodness , oh my god.
Ahaaa...when you pronounce this,put your palm to cover your mouth. Cute expression.

omona usual expression~

Jebal ( 제발 ) 
= Please.
Its a word to say please to someone. Such as help me do this and that, jebal... If you put juseyo behind the word, it will become even more like pleading nicely. Jebal juseyo.

Yeppo ( 예뻐 )
= Pretty. Its often use to describe people/human and sometime things.

Areumdaun ( 아름다운 )
= Beautiful. Also indicates as beautiful but usually to describe scenery...but sometimes also on human. Such as areumdaun yeoja ( pretty woman )

Yeoja ( 여자 )
= Lady , woman, female

Namja ( 남자 )
= Man, male , guy was it. I may stop for now but will post more later on.

I am still very very lack in this language but I love learning korean hangeul. So, this entry is to share some random basic words. See ya.
