How to say “1st place”

“1st place” is usually expressed in two different ways:

= 1등 [il-deung] or  1위 [il-wi]

They are interchangeable, but 1등 is much more commonly used in everyday situations and 1위 is often used in more formal settings.

How to say “to come in 1st place”

It’s very simple. You can just use the verb “하다” and say 1등 하다 or 1위 하다.

Ex) 저 1등 했어요. / 저 1위 했어요. / 우리 팀이 1위 했어!
