Whatsup everyone! Dom here again. Today, we’re introducing some Konglish to you guys with the word banana in Korean. This is probably the easiest fruit to remember in Korean as it sounds almost exactly like its English counterpart.
In Korean, it sounds more like “bah-nah-nah”.
For a bunch, you would use the Korean counter (송이) like so:
바나나 한 송이 주세요 (ba-na-na han song-i ju-se-yo) = Give me one bunch of bananas please.
