We’re back for a word of the day! Today’s word is angel. Angel in Korean is very simple:
천사 (cheon-sa) = angel
Easy right? Of course, many people use this to describe someone who has or is very nice. Or someone who has helped them out greatly even if it inconvenienced them. So how would you use this word to describe someone like that?
Let’s take a look at some phrases and words:
넌 나의 천사야 (neon na-ui cheon-sa-ya) = You’re my angel
Since you will most likely be using this towards someone close to you, you can use the casual form. If not, you can just change it to the polite form:
(name/title here) 나의 천사예요 (name/title na-ui cheon-sa-ye-yo)
How about “You’re like an angel.”?
도미닉 씨는 천사 같아요 (do-mi-nik cheon-sa ga-ta-yo) = Dominic is like an angel.
You can just change the names for the person you are referring to or you can use 너 if you are really close to the person.
And there you have it! If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments section or email us. See you next time 🙂Remember that romanization is only a tool! Try not to depend on it too much and try learning the Korean alphabet and how to pronounce the letters properly and you will have a much easier time learning.
