Korean Game Terminology

Game Terms in Korean


So hopefully this helps those of you who may have downloaded a Korean game to your smartphone  and had no idea what some of the vocabulary was. I’ve had this happen many times and although I could understand basic Konglish, there were some tougher terms that I couldn’t understand. This graphic doesn’t cover everything, but it covers some common ones you may come across.

Have to give a shoutout and thanks to Go!BillyKorean for giving me the idea and providing me with the game terms and translations. Check out his site for some fun Korean lessons!

Remember that romanization is only a tool! Try not to depend on it too much and try learning the Korean alphabet and how to pronounce the letters properly and you will have a much easier time learning.

Some great books to get your started are Korean Made Simple: A beginner's guide to learning the Korean language and Become a Hangeul Master: Learn to Read and Write Korean Characters

    Just found out about this site through My Korean Husband and have been reading all your comics. Have to say your graphics are great. Really explains Korea in so many ways. I’m Korean American. Probably twice your age but I too am learning about Korea. My parents tried but I resisted. Not until about 3 years ago when I got hooked on dramas and variety shows. I am learning so much. I can understand about 1/2 as I don’t speak Korean much. But now I can understand which more than ever.
    Both of you seem very cool and down to earth, I’m an artist and designer. I really do love your graphic charts. They should be published in a book!
    Anyway I enjoy your site and will continue to read about your adventures.

      Thanks so much Miyo glad you enjoy them 🙂 It’s cool that you’re learning about things now and also good to talk with another designer/artist. We will actually be putting all the graphics and comics into an ebook so look out for that soon!
