안녕하세요, 여러분! Hello everyone! Today I will learn about some very interesting Korean words!
Have you ever heard the sound of English words in Korean while learning Korean? Yes that’s right! We use a variety of English words in Korean language too!
These words are originally from English, and we call these words loanwords, in Korean it is 외래어. There are many other 외래어 from other foreign languages too, such as French, German, Spanish… but today we are going to learn 외래어 from English.
The Korean pronunciation of loanwords is sometimes a little different from their original pronunciation. I guess these loanwords are easy to understand and remember for English speakers, because they sound almost similar to that word’s original pronunciation.
Then let’s learn 10 loanwords now!
The meaning of 키스 is just kiss! mwha. Haha let’s see an example!
너 정국 키스 신 봤어? Did you see Jungkook’s kiss scene in the music video?
당연히 봤지. 완전 설레더라! Of course. He gives me butterflies!
- 펜 / 팬
펜 means pen, and 팬 means fan. In English, there is a distinction between the sound p and f, but there is no f sound in Korean. These two words are pronounced almost as the same sound, as 펜/팬. So you have to be careful in writing.
펜 좀 빌려줄 수 있어? Can I use your pen? 응. Of course.
이 뮤직 비디오 같이 볼래? Would you like to watch this music video together?

헐.. 완전 멋있네? 이제 나 정국 팬이야. Oh my god. I crushed on him. I’m a Jungkook fan from today.
