Hello again everyone! Enjoying the fall weather? We thought we would do a few posts related to the weather now that it’s finally getting cooler here. It was a long, hot summer and I’m happy to have it finally cool down. However…winter is coming.
Today, we are talking about the word for rain in Korean. Many of you might already know it since there is a famous actor/singer in Korean who goes by the name 비.
It’s a really simple and easy word to learn and you should have no trouble remembering it.
Now, how do Koreans use this word in daily conversation? Lets’ start off with a few examples:
지금 비 와요. (ji-geum bi wa-yo) It’s raining now.
You will hear this often and you can raise your intonation and pose it as a question as well:
지금 비 와요? (ji-geum bi wa-yo) Is it raining now?
Some other ways to use rain in a sentence:

비 오는 날 싫어요 (bi o-neun nal shil-eo-yo) I hate rainy days.
Remember to drop the 요 if you want to use the formal version.
