How to Say King in Korean

How to Say King in Korean

Our word for the day is king. This past weekend, Hyo and I went to visit her father. One of his favorite things to do is watch historical Korean dramas which usually feature kings and/or queens for the Joseon Dynasty. After seeing parts of a show he was watching this weekend, I got the idea to do a short post on how to say king in Korean.

You probably won’t find yourself referring to any current government official as a king, but it’s still a good word to know. Sometimes Koreans will refer to a spoiled son sarcastically as a little little king or prince.

Other words that are sometimes used for the word king are 제왕 and 국왕 however, just knowing the word 왕 will be enough.

How to Say Sister in Korean

How to Say Sister in Korean

Up next in our family series is learning how to say sister in Korean. Like the words for brother, how you address your sister would depend on your age in relation to her. Also like the words for brother, whether you are male or female which dictate how you address her as well.

Let’s start with the first one:

언니 (eon-ni) = This is used by women to refer to their older sister. It would also be used if you are close friends with a woman who is older than you. Remember that 친구 (friend) is only used towards people who are the same age.

(여)동생 ([yeo] dong-saeng) = 동생 is used to refer to your younger siblings. Sometimes people add 여 (woman) or 남 (man) to make a distinction as to whether their younger sibling is their sister or brother. However most times, these are left out, and people simply say 동생.

누나 (nu-na) = This is used by men to refer to their older sister or a woman who is a close friend and also older than them.

And that’s it! Very simple. Check out some of our other posts on family vocabulary below:
