Hey everyone! November is almost over and Christmas is almost upon us. Hope all my American friends had a great Thanksgiving.
Previously, we did a post on how to say “I love you” in the Korean language. Check out that one after you’re done with this one (or now). This post is a little different from that one in that we’re talking about the actual word love and its associations.
As you know, love is not only expressed in terms of saying I love you but in other ways like passions, attachment, etc.
As you can see above, the most common way to refer to love is 사랑 (sa-rang). You will usually see this word in its verb form (사랑하다) but it can be used without the verb stem as well. A popular form of this would be:
내 사랑 (nae sa-rang)
This means my love. It’s very romantic and you’ll hear it in poems, romantic movies, dramas, songs, etc.
This refers to love in a sense of passion and/or attachment to someone. Think someone who relentlessly pursues someone or treats the person they love as if they are the only person in the world.
This is the more technical definition of the word love and was more popular than 사랑 in the past. You can use this to refer to the general feeling of love.
This refers to a strong attachment to someone or even an animal. It’s not usually romantic in nature and like an emotional bond. Think of how an infant or baby has a strong attachment to it’s mother.
And there you have it! As we said earlier, check out How to Say I Love You in Korean for more info on this topic 🙂
