Days In A Week / 요일

In this Talk To Me In Korean lesson, we are introducing the Korean names for the 7 days in a week. It takes some effort to memorize and remember these names, but we hope that listening to this lesson will make it a bit easier for you to remember them.

In this lesson, we are going to introduce the days of the week in Korean. 

월요일 [wo-ryo-il] = Monday

화요일 [hwa-yo-il] = Tuesday

수요일 [su-yo-il] = Wednesday

목요일 [mo-gyo-il] = Thursday

금요일 [geu-myo-il] = Friday

토요일 [to-yo-il] = Saturday

일요일 [i-ryo-il] = Sunday


The only part that changes in the names for the days of the week is the first letter. The second and the third letters together, 요일 means “day of the week” and 월, 화, 수, 목, 금, 토, 일 are the unique names of the days.


Let’s glance at the 한자 [han-ja] characters (한자 is the Korean word for Chinese characters) that are used in the names of the days of the week. 

月 = 월 [wol] = the Moon

火 = 화 [hwa] = fire

水 = 수 [su] = water

木 = 목 [mok] = tree 

金 = 금 [geum] = gold, metal, iron

土 = 토 [to] = earth, soil, ground 

日 = 일 [il] = the Sun


Many of the names for the days of the week in Korean are related to the names of the planets in the solar system. 

화요일 = Tuesday / 화성 [hwa-seong] = Mars

수요일 = Wednesday / 수성 [su-seong] = Mercury

목요일 = Thursday / 목성 [mok-seon] = Jupiter

금요일 = Friday / 금성 [geum-seong] = Venus

토요일 = Saturday / 토성 [to-seong] = Saturn
