Types of Deer in Korean

Thanks to LingoDeer for contacting us and giving us this idea for a post. Koreans really aren’t familiar with the names for different types of deer because they really don’t have any chances to see many types of deer except for at the zoo. I’ve seen most types back in the states on various trips to the wilderness.

As you can see, the word for deer is 사슴 and we’ve listed the 6 most common types along with the cute mascot from LingoDeer.

LingoDeer is a very helpful app that focuses on helping people learn Korean, Chinese, and Japanese.

You can start off with the basics by learning how to write and then move on to other lessons (along with helpful tips and flashcards) that will get you speaking your target language in no time. Check out more info about the app at the official LingoDeer website.

Korean gifts

I’ve been living in Korea for a little over 7 years now and I often get asked by friends and family to bring them back Korean gifts when I visit home during the vacations. My mom loves the green tea and although I’m not really into Kpop or dramas hardcore, some of my friends are and I’ll bring them back a poster or trinket of some sort. I also have several friends who love the variety of snacks and instant noodles.

However, some of you may not have friends or family in Korea or you may not be going anytime soon, so I’ve made a list of some of my favorite things that you can find online or at your local Korean mart to satisfy that need.

Most of these can be found on Amazon and some on other great sites. So without further ado, let’s get started!

The South Korean flag is probably one of the more immediately recognizable flags of the world. It has a very simple and easy to notice design. However, there are deeper meaning behind the colors and symbols on the flag.

The first things you might notice on the flag are the blue and red colors that make up the circle in the middle of the flag. Most of you might realize it looks like the commonly known yin/yang symbol and that’s because it is.

Winter in Korea

It’s been super cold the past few days with a big fat Siberian high bringing down cold air from Russia. It seems like in Korea, we have to choose between slightly warmer temps above freezing with dirty air, or clear blue skies and bone chilling temps.

I’m thinking I prefer the latter.
