How To Say Umbrella in Korean

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

Umbrella in Korean

In yesterdays KWotD lesson, we learned the Korean word for ‘snow’ and today, continuing with weather related words, we will learn how to say ‘umbrella‘ in Korean. For this, we use the word:



(in Hangul: 우산)

There’s is not a lot to this word. The most important thing is to know how to use it and what verbs go with it and that’s exactly why we list some examples!


usan-eul ssu-da (우산을 쓰다).

= To use an umbrella.


usan-eul pyeo-da (우산을 펴다).

= To ‘open’ (unfold / spread) an umbrella.


usan-eul jeob-da (우산을 접다).

= To ‘close’ (fold) an umbrella.


Note: the ‘eul’ (을) part marks the object (usan/ 우산) of the sentence.

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?
