    ex: Walking up a staircase, you want to keep to the right so you won’t bump into people going down the left side.

    우측 means “right side”
    보행 means “walk”

  • Lisa

    보행 qui vient du verbe 보행하다 : marcher

    우측 : à droite ; côté droit

    On peut traduire 우측보행 littéralement par “Marcher du côté droit”. On pourra aussi dire “Rester à droite” ou bien encore “Serrez à droite”.

  • Chantal

    We could translate 우측보행 in French like that “marchez sur votre droite” – to walk on the right side

    우측 “à droite” – on the right side

    보행하다 “marcher” to walk

    보 “à pied” step, pase

  • 김모모

    walking on the right

    우측 ☞ right/ one’s right
    보행 ☞ walk

  • Licia

    우측보행: ‘Walk on the right’, ‘Keep to the right’ – in Italian it can be translated as ‘Camminare a destra’ or ‘Mantenere la destra’, but I don’t think it’s common… Italian people usually just walk randomly (and annoy the locals when they travel abroad!)

    Or they just sit on the steps to enjoy the sunshine (*^^*)

  • Michael Sproule

    In spite of the arrow pointing to the left, the words seem to say “right-side walking traffic”.

  • Paul Jensen

    “Keep right”


    “보행” – walking

    “우측” – Right

    So the literal translation would be “right walking” or “right side walking” But I’m sure it simply means to keep to the right.

    Here’s what it looks like here in the USA:

    • Ruth Adams

      You DO realize that sign is pointing LEFT right?? XD

  • Lauryka

    Hello, here is translation into Slovenian.

  • A-sēng–á

    In taiwanese, it would be「Chhiáⁿ kiâⁿ chiàⁿ-chhiú-pêng」.

    chhiáⁿ = please
    kiâⁿ = 보행 = walk, pass
    chiàⁿ-chhiú-pêng = 우측 = right side

  • luayluck

    우측보행 walk to the right

  • 준등

    Walking on the right hand side
    Keep to your right hand side!!
    The right-hand traffic
    우측 – one’s right, the right
    보행 – walk

  • Sally Andrews

    It is telling you to walk (보행) on the right side (우측). Just not sure why it is pointing to the left?

  • Gumiho Pyul

    우측보행 = keep to the right

    우측 from 오른쪽 = Right
    보행 = walking

    literally mean right walking

  • Gumiho Pyul

    우측보행 meaning be polite, stay to the right.
    And mean everywhere. Please follow this flow of traffic

  • Gumiho Pyul

    우측보행 meaning be polite, stay to the right.
    And mean everywhere. Please follow this flow of traffic ;

  • Brianne

    Walking right? Keep right/continue to the right 🙂

  • Jennifer Davies

    Keep to the right

  • Adrianna Rzepczyńska

    우측보행 – trzymać się prawej strony

  • ShirL


    우 the right (in this case) + 측 side = 우측 the right (side)

    보 step/pace + 행 line = 보행 walk

    우측보행 walk to the right/walk on your right.

    In this case the arrow indicates that if you travel on that direction to please walk (in line) to your right.

  • Joyce Chan

    우측 means ‘on the right’
    보행 means 步行, walk
    In Chinese 우측보행 靠右行走 or simply’靠右’ s enough as a sign.

  • 티라

    Here’s my simple explanation :
    우측 means right
    보행 means walk

    Since the sign/arrow shows to the left, my guess is you have to walk on the right side of the pathway.

  • Lena

    In Japanese, it would be: 右歩行
    右(みぎ) = 우측
    歩行(ほこう) = 보행

    However, in Japan, it is standard to travel on the left side.
    左側(ひだりがわ) = 좌측

    Japanese say: “左側通行”
    which is “좌측통행” ^▽^

    通行(つうこう) = 통행

    Many people ride bikes in Japan, so you will see signs, PSAs, news reports, and such quite often.
