How To Say Snow in Korean

Korean Word of the Day: How to say Snow in Korean

Snow in Korean

In yesterdays KWotD lesson, we looked at the Korean word for Japan and today, with the winter going away and all, we will learn how to say ‘snow’ in Korean. For this we use the word:

 

nun

(in Hangul: 눈)

 

Nun (눈) can also mean ‘eye’ so you have to be aware of the context to figure out if it means one or the other.  And as you know, with snow comes fun, like building a snowman or having a snowball fight. To say these words in Korean you use:

 

nun-saram (snowman)

(in Hangul: 눈사람)

 

nun-ssaum (snowball fight)

(in Hangul: 눈싸움)

 

Examples

nun-i wayo (in Hangul: 눈이 와요).

= It snows. (= it comes)

 

nun-i neryeoyo (눈이 내려요).

= It snows. (= it falls down)

 

These two sentences mean the same thing!

 

As usual we reocmmend that you learn hangul if you are serious about learning Korean if you haven’t already done so. It is much easier than you probably think and, believe it or not, it will only take you a few days to be able to read the entire alphabet. So what are you waiting for?
