What’s Your Animal? Chinese Zodiac in Korea


With the New Year passing a few weeks ago, thought I would make this. Note that in Korea, the Year of the Rooster can also be called chicken or hen, the Year of the Goat can also be called ram or sheep, and the Year of the Pig can also be called Boar. Each animal has certain traits and characteristics and it is said if you were born in that year, you will have those traits. No one takes it that seriously these days and is mainly used for fun and as ice breakers when meeting new people.

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 to have an easier time learning
