Hey everyone! Today, we’re gonna teach you how to say girlfriend in Korean and some related vocabulary.

Learning this word is very easy. For example, take 여자친구  which is the standard word for girlfriend.

Like the English word, if we break it down, we get:

여자 ( yeo-ja) = girl/woman

친구 (chin-gu) = friend

Put them together, and you get girlfriend! If you want to shorten it (slang), you would simply use the first syllables of each word:

여친 (yeo-chin)

This would be the equivalent of “gf” in English.

And that’s pretty much it. However, you wouldn’t use this word for a girl who is simply a friend. You would use 여성 친구 which is basically “female friend”.

Here are some sentences/questions you can use:

여자친구 있어요? (yeo-ja-chin-gu i-sseo-yo) = Do you have a girlfriend?

내 여자친구가 되어줄래? (nae yeo-ja-chin-gu-ga doe-eo-jul-lae) Will you be my girlfriend?

네 여자친구가 되고 싶어. (ne yeo-ja-chin-gu-ga doe-go ship-eo) I want to be your girlfriend.
