"Would you?" (으)려무나 & (으)렴 | Live Class Abridged

Wed, 2023-01-11 17:19

Most Sundays I offer a free Korean live classroom where we learn about all sorts of topics. This past Sunday I did a class all about the Intermediate level grammar form (으)려무나 or (으)렴, which is used for giving commands. This form is specifically used when giving a command to someone who's younger than you, and has a friendly tone.

“Angel” in Korean – Learn the different ways to say it

Tue, 2023-01-10 06:52

Today we are back with another quick but useful lesson: how to say “angel” in Korean!

At first glance, do you find this word useful to add to your vocabulary? Perhaps so. Angels are a big part of Christian religions, sure, but that’s not the only context they can be used in. These days angels are also popular mythical creatures to use in different forms of media.

“Angel” can also be used as an adjective when describing someone’s generous and helpful efforts toward someone. Angels are also common decorations to have around Christmas time! Therefore, you may get more opportunities to use this beautiful word than you might think. Let’s get to it!

How to say “angel” in Korean

The Korean word for “angel” is 천사 (cheon-sa). To learn how to write “angel” in the Korean language, your first step is to learn Korean letters by knowing the Korean alphabet.

This is a noun that refers to any type of angel. It can be a person, a decoration, or an angel in terms of religion.

Sample sentences:

넌 내 천사야. (neon nae cheonsaya)

You’re my angel.

Note that this sentence uses the most informal structure for speaking and should thus only be used with someone close to you. You can use this in situations where someone has helped you out greatly or shown you deep kindness.

This is, of course, possible to also say to someone you are not as familiar with in a similar situation. In that case, you may want to use a sentence that sounds more polite and say it like this:

그쪽은 내 천사예요. (geujjogeun nae cheonsayeyo.)

You’re my angel.

Instead of 그쪽 (geujjok), you may also opt to use the person’s name or title, whichever is more appropriate.

Other words related to “angel” in Korean

Now, let’s take a look at more words related to “angel.”

“Angelic” in Korean

If you want to make it clear you are referring to someone who is like an angel, you can also say 천사 같은 사람 (cheonsa kateun saram), rather than simply 천사 (cheonsa).

Similarly, if you want to describe someone or something as angelic, you may use the descriptive verb 고결하다 (gogyeolhada).

Sample sentences:

메간씨는 정말 고결한 사람이에요. (meganssineun jeongmal gogyeolhan saramieyo.)

Megan is a really angelic person.

Let’s take a look at the above sentence. “Angel-like” or “angelic” would be their American-English translation. Other ways to phrase the same sentence are these:

메간씨는 천사 같아요. (meganssineun cheonsa gatayo.)

Megan is like an angel.

메간씨는 천사 같은 사람이에요. (meganssineun cheonsa gateun saramieyo.)

Megan is an angel-like person.

Thus, all three are rather similar expressions with each other.

“Angelical” in Korean

You may also want to use the adjective “angelical.” In this case, the same verb, 고결하다 (gogyeolhada), still applies. This same verb can be used when expressing words such as loyal, virtuous, and noble.

“Heaven” in Korean

The Korean word for “heaven” is 천국 (cheonguk). When talking about angels, they’re usually associated with heaven.

Wrap Up

And now your vocabulary is a few words richer again! In what type of settings do you think you’ll be using the Korean word for angel the most? Let us know your answer below in the comments!

Regardless of the languages used, whether Korean, Japanese, or English, we hope you can find an angel in your life!

Korean nicknames – Terms to use to address your friends

Mon, 2023-01-09 03:21

In this article, we will teach you various Korean nicknames. Do you have a nickname? What do you like to be called, and what do others call you if it’s not your birth name? Just like us all, even Koreans like to give each other nicknames.

It can be to show affection, to distinguish two people with the same name from each other, or simply be that someone prefers to be called by a different name than the one on their birth certificate.

How to say “nickname” in Korean

The word for “nickname” in the Korean language is 별명 (byeolmyeong). You may use this Korean word to ask your friends about their nicknames or when you want to ask them to create one.

You might have heard characters in K-dramas call each other by nicknames too. What kinds of nicknames are common and popular in South Korea? And is there a particular way in which they are formed? What kind of a Korean nickname could you give yourself? And are there certain situations where they are more likely to be used? Let’s find out!

How to come up with Korean nicknames

A nickname is formed based on the person’s name but also on other qualities, like appearance, behavior, expression, and personality. Sometimes a nickname may even be based on one’s career! And because you need to have a certain kind of a bond with someone to commonly call them by their first name, a birthname can also be considered a nickname among Koreans.

Depending on the nickname, it can arouse either positive or negative emotions, especially in the person whose nickname it is. Typically the response is positive when the creator of the nickname is the person who is called by it.

However, when it is others who have picked out the nickname, the reaction can become more negative. Especially it may be so if there were malicious or teasing elements behind the nickname’s creation. It is a shame some of them get created in such a manner, as they are ultimately meant to be fun and affectionate nicknames.

List of common Korean nicknames

How you address friends or call a person defines the relationship you have. In the same way, Koreans also give each other nicknames out of affection, among other reasons. As mentioned above, Korean nicknames, just like any other nicknames in the world, have various sources. These are commonly based on someone’s appearance, behavior, expression, and personality.

If you’re looking for Korean terms of endearment used by married couples or those in romantic relationships, then we have an extensive list of the most popular Korean terms of endearment in this article. You’ll find Korean terms like baby, princess, honey, darling, and other sweet words used by Korean couples.

For now, let’s learn the popular Korean nicknames below!

Korean nicknames based on appearance

To start, below are the most popular Korean words used as nicknames which are based on a person’s appearance.

EnglishKorean Energy poles (for tall people)전봇대 (jeonbotdae) High legs (for tall people)키다리 (kidari) Long legs (for tall people)롱다리 (longdari) Ostrich (for tall people)타조 (tajo) Peanut (for short people)땅콩 (ttangkong) Pororo (for people wearing glasses)뽀로로 (ppororo) Short legs (for short people)숏다리 (syotdari) Small child (for short people)꼬맹이 (kkomaengi) Small child (for short people)땅꼬마 (ttangkkoma) Korean nicknames based on abilities

Below are Korean nicknames that describe a person’s ability.

EnglishKorean Cheetah (for fast people)치타 (chita) Laziness (for slow people)느림보 (neurimbo) Snail (for slow people)달팽이 (dalpaengi) Turbo (for fast people)터보 (teobo) Turtle (for slow people)거북이 (geoboki) Korean nicknames that are cool, funny, or unique

If you’re into the more unique and cute nicknames, below is the list for you.

EnglishKorean Armful아름 (areum) Azalea진달래 (jindallae) Beckoning지호 (jiho) Butterfly나비 (nabi) Clove pink카네이션 (kaneisyeon) Coffin관 (gwan) Daisy데이지 (deiji) Dalhia달리아 (dallia) Dandelion민들레 (mindeulle) Day하루 (haru) Our puppy우리 강아지 (uri gangaji) Pansy팬지 (paenji) Paper weight서진 (seojin) Peony모란 (moran) Poetical friend시우 (siu) Poppy양귀비 (yanggwibi) Powerful힘찬 (himchan) Praise찬미 (chanmi) Prince왕자님 (wangjanim) Princess공주님 (gongjunim) Ruler; idiot치자 (chija) Runner-up준우 (junu) Sea, ocean바다 (bada) Shooter사격수 (sagyeoksu) Sir, Lord경 (gyeong) Sky, heaven하늘 (haneul) Star별 (byeol) Sunflower해바라기 (haebaragi) Teardrop이슬 (iseul) Tree나무 (namu) Tsunami해일 (haeil) Tulip튤립 (tyullip) Violet, purple보라 (bora) How to create your own Korean nickname

When creating your own nickname, remember that it is a way to identify and describe yourself. So, choose a nickname that is positive and fits you well. It can be based on a personality trait, ability, or a part of your appearance. It could also be a play on your name, for example.

You may go for a unique or cute nickname like some of the ones presented above, but you can also list down some Korean names and choose one to serve as your nickname – and it can double as your Korean name, too! We have an article dedicated to Korean names you can look up for more information.

Oftentimes, when coming up with a Korean name, people choose and create names that resemble their own birth name. However, it is also totally possible for you to create a name and a nickname that is vastly different from your name. If possible, you can also ask your Korean friends for help in creating one or perhaps even have them create it for you.

Wrap Up

Would you, too, like to have a Korean nickname? How wonderful! Now you know the Korean term that you can start calling your best friend, classmate, or older brother, for example. Having one brings you a step closer to experiencing the Korean culture.

We hope that you have the best time with it! Whether you’re thinking of Korean terms of endearment or Korean nicknames, share them with us below in the comments!

Templestay – Bulguksa Temple (Gyeongju)

Sun, 2023-01-08 23:23
The Beautiful Front Facade to Bulguksa Temple in Gyeongju. Introduction to Temple

Bulguksa Temple is arguably Korea’s most famous temple. It’s located in eastern Gyeongju, and it’s situated in the foothills of Mt. Tohamsan (745 m). Bulguksa Temple means “Buddha Kingdom Temple” in English. Bulguksa Temple was first constructed in 528 A.D., which was the first year that Buddhism was officially accepted by the Silla Kingdom (57 B.C. – 935 A.D.) during the reign of King Beopheung of Silla (r. 514-540 A.D.). Originally, the temple was named Beopryusa Temple or Hwaeom Bulguksa Temple.

Then nearly two hundred years later, the Bulguksa Temple that we know of today was first started in 742 A.D. The design and financial backing of the newly built Bulguksa Temple came from Prime Minster Kim Daeseong (700-774 A.D.). However, before the temple could be completed, Kim Daeseong died in 774 A.D., and Bulguksa Temple was completed during the reign of King Hyegong of Silla (r. 765 – 780 A.D.). It was at this time that Bulguksa Temple was given its current name.

Throughout the temple’s long history, Bulguksa Temple has been destroyed multiple times including the first time in the late 13th century by the invading Mongols. Later, the temple was reconstructed and renovated several times during the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392) and the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). Bulguksa Temple was destroyed, once more, by the invading Japanese during the Imjin War (1592-1598). After its 1593 destruction, another major reconstruction took place at Bulguksa Temple in 1604. And in 1700, the original layout of the temple was completely restored. It was in 1805 that Bulguksa Temple fell into disrepair and was looted by robbers.

Bulguksa Temple was then initially repaired during the early part of Japanese Colonial Rule (1910-1945) from 1918 to 1925. It was further renovated from 1934 and 1935. Then after the Japanese Colonial Rule came to an end, an extensive restoration took place from 1963 to 1973 under President Park Chung-hee (1917-1979). In total, some 24 buildings were renovated and rebuilt. During the 1980’s and 1990’s, Bulguksa Temple simply acted as a major tourist attraction. However, in the year 2000, the management of Bulguksa Temple was transferred over to the Jogye-jong Order, and the temple resumed its central role in Korean Buddhism, once more. Bulguksa Temple, along with the neighbouring Seokguram Hermitage, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. Also, Bulguksa Temple is home to 7 National Treasures (the most at any Korean Buddhist temple), and an additional 6 Korean Treasures.

Bulguksa Temple conducts a single Templestay program. It’s The Fragrance of a Thousand Years Program, which is a one night, two day program that focuses on a temple tour, prayer bead making, ceremonies, and meditation.
