Vocabulary: Pronouns “I, Me, My, & Mine” in Korean

Pronouns in Korean

Koreans Pronouns are really good to know when you are just starting to learn the language as they are easy to remember and apply in everyday conversations.

They can be hard to explain though and different forms are used depending on things like hierarchy and age. We will eventually do a graphic/post that goes more in depth on how to use these with elders, how they change with certain grammar, and more honorifics. Using these to the wrong person could be considered very rude. For example, using 나 to an older person you just met.

We will also later go into second and third person pronouns and how to make them plural in our next graphic on this topic. There is a lot to cover.

There are many little nuances that we have explained in this graphic. If you want to study even more and improve your Korean, check out our ebooks over at the Dom & Hyo Store.
