Summer Vocabulary in Korean

We are in the dead heat of summer here in Korea. In fact, it’s been the hottest summer on record in decades and definitely been the hottest summer in my 9 years of living here. I can’t even walk outside 2 minutes without being drenched in sweat.

Usually the rainy season lasts for half the summer and we only have to deal with super hot temps from the beginning of August, but the heat has been blazing since early July as the rainy season lasted only 7 days.

We have been running the AC constantly and trying to stay cool. We thought it would be a perfect time to do some summer vocabulary for you guys.

If you are ever thinking about visiting Korea, avoid July and August if you can. It’s hot, humid, rainy (usually), and sticky. Of course, if you have no choice, then just make sure to stay cool, check out a few waterparks and enjoy it as best you can. Also check out our other post on weather vocabulary. (And yes we added the last vocabulary word as a joke because when I walk outside, it feels like hell.)
