How To Say Music in Korean

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

Music in Korean

In yesterdays KWotD lesson, we learned the Korean word for ‘umbrella’ so if you missed that one, be sure to check it out! Today, we will learn how to say ‘music’ in Korean so if you have an interest in K-pop, you might find this word extra useful.  Anyway, the word we’re looking for is :



(in Hangul: 음악)


As a beginner, the most important verb to know if you want to use this in a sentence is  deureoyo (들어요) which means “listen.” Look below for an example of how to use these two words together. Also, if you like K-Pop and study Korean, you might find our article on common words and phrases used in K-pop useful.


eumak-eul deureoyo (in Hangul: 음악을 들어요).

= I listen to music.


eo-ddeon eumak-eul johahaeyo (어떤 음악을 좋아해요?)?

= What kind of music do you like?

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?
