Teach Me Korean Body Part Names

  • This is very informative work like others. I really appriciate your efforts and I like the site. I think, If I continue to study Korean from this site, I can learn Korean very well within 5-6 months. Even you are Korean, creating this kind of succesfully designed site must be very difficult. I wonder which professions you have?

    oh! I just knew that 가슴 means breast. I thought that 가슴 is the same as 마음 which means heart. hmm how is it ?
    감사합니다~ >.<

    • Hi Virda,

      Please check out this video lesson below:


    • I think when Gaseum is used as both chest and heart because when I listen to some korean love songs they talk about gaseum as if its gonna burst (With love~) and its translated to something like “my heart drops” or “my heart’s gonna burst!” it probably symbolising how your heart hurts so much its gonna burst out of your chest. Thats just my take on it though.

  • 너무 신나 이에요! 이 많이 좋아해요! 감사함니다! 현우씨 귀여운 얼굴하고 목소리 있다 =)

    • 너무 신나 이에요! > 너무 신나요!

      현우씨 귀여운 얼굴하고 목소리 있다 > 현우 씨는 얼굴하고 목소리가 귀여워요.

    저는 머리카락이 길어요, 그래서 머리를 천천히 감아요.

  • You missed the Korean word for “foot”. :p

  • 저는 눈이 나빠요 🙁 안경을 써요 🙁
    머리카락 짧아요
    감사합니다 선생님 🙂

    • 저도 머리카락이 짧아요. ㅎㅎ

    May I ask what is the differences in pronouncing ㄱ&ㅋ(e.g고 코) , ㅂ&ㅍ(입&잎)? Always get confused when listening@@!

    • the second ones are a harder sound, ㄱ is G sound but ㅋ is K sound. ㅂ is B sound but ㅍ is P sound. Hope that helps.

    Is this correct?
    너 얼굴 예뻐있어요 (You have a pretty face)
    If it’s not please correct me
    너무 감사합니다~

    • Hana

      You could say “You have a pretty face” using either these forms:
      1. 너 예쁜 얼굴을 있다.
      2. 너의 얼굴이 예쁘다.

      Those sentences have the same meaning though they’re a bit different if you translate them literally. No.1 means “You have pretty face”, while no.2 means “Your face is pretty.”

      What’s incorrect of your example (너 얼굴 예뻐있어요) is that you put together two “verbs” (예쁘다 and 있다). It is not impossible to put down two verbs together but that is just not how it works in your case. I hope this helps. 🙂

    I was listening to kpop earlier and realized that BTS’s song Just One Day 하루만 has a lot of these body part words in it, especially during Suga’s part near the beginning. Thanks to this lesson, I was able to pick them out while listening to it. I even noticed that they use 머리 in a line about hair so thank you for adding that the word for head can be used for hair too. It rhymes with 허리 in the next line. 🙂
