“Baby” in Korean – Use this word in different ways

Koreabridge - Thu, 2023-01-12 07:03

Today, we’ll be learning how to say “baby” in Korean. Previously, we already covered the topic of Korean family terms. Although “baby” wasn’t one of them, of course, babies are born into families every single day. So shouldn’t we all know how to say it in Korean?

Alternatively, “baby” is also a common term of endearment and even a way to describe someone. Many boyfriends and girlfriends like to call each other baby. Or someone might act cutesy or childish, just like a baby.

Therefore, there are a few reasons why you might want to learn the Korean word for “baby.” And today, we shall finally learn it together!

Different ways to use the word “baby” in Korean

Now, as we already glossed over, there are numerous different Korean words to say this noun. It all depends on context!

Official translation for “baby” in Korean

The first word for “baby” is 아기 (agi). This is also considered the official word for baby. Thus, it may be one that’ll be first to pop up when you search for “baby” in dictionaries, for example. It is also applicable to use in many cases. You can use it whenever you are talking about infants, including baby animals. However, it is not a term of endearment.

Informal way to say “baby” in Korean

The second word for “baby” is 애기 (aegi). This is a cutesy way of saying 아기 (agi) and is also considered to be rather informal. It can be used when referring to infants – including baby animals – when you want to be cute.

However, this can also be used as a term for endearment with your loved ones. In that case, its meaning may also be “sweetheart” rather than “baby.”

Cute way to say “baby” in Korean

The third word for baby is 아가 (aga). This is another one that is commonly used, although it is not the official term, so you might have heard this used in K-dramas. It is also used in a more affectionate way and to refer to the infant in an adorable way, although it’s not quite as cutesy as 애기 (aegi). If you have a child or children, this is what you can call them.

It can also be used with people, such as daughters-in-law, to show affection. If it’s someone close to you in age, you may prefer to use the word 애기 (aegi) instead when you wish to show affection.

“Baby” in Korean as an endearment

The fourth word for “baby” is 베이비 (beibi). With how it is pronounced (be-i-bi), it’s definitely easy to remember. This is the Konglish way to say “baby” in the Korean language. You can use this to refer to babies, as well as a term of endearment.

However, a more popular word of endearment for “baby” in Korean that you might hear is 자기 (jagi).

Other words related to “baby” in Korean

Below is a list of words related to the topic “baby,” which you may find useful to learn.

Finally, here are some sentence examples to get you started with using this new vocabulary with their translation in English.

와, 정말 귀여운 아기네요! (wa, jeongmal gwiyeoun agineyo!)

Wow, what a cute baby!

넌 정말 귀여워, 마치 아기 같아. (neon jeongmal gwiyeowo, machi agi gata.)

You’re so cute, just like a baby.

Sample dialogue

A: 우리가 아기를 위해 무엇을 사야 해? (uriga agireul wihae mueoseul saya hae?)

What do we need to buy for a baby?

B: 음… 우선 유모차, 아기 침대, 그리고 고무 젖꼭지 몇 개 사야 해. 그리고 물론 기저귀도 사야 하지! (eum… useon yumocha, agi chimdae, geurigo gomu jeotkkokji myeot gae saya hae. geurigo mullon gijeogwido saya haji!)

Hm… We need to buy a pram, a crib, and some dummies, to start with. And, of course, we need to buy diapers, too!

Wrap Up

Regardless of the languages you speak, whether it’s Japanese, German, English, etc., learning Korean words such as “baby” is quite easy! We hope that with this lesson, you’re ready to talk about baby-related matters and use cutesy terms on a loved one and get a few ideas about Korean culture too.

"Would you?" (으)려무나 & (으)렴 | Live Class Abridged

Koreabridge - Wed, 2023-01-11 17:19

Most Sundays I offer a free Korean live classroom where we learn about all sorts of topics. This past Sunday I did a class all about the Intermediate level grammar form (으)려무나 or (으)렴, which is used for giving commands. This form is specifically used when giving a command to someone who's younger than you, and has a friendly tone.

“Angel” in Korean – Learn the different ways to say it

Koreabridge - Tue, 2023-01-10 06:52

Today we are back with another quick but useful lesson: how to say “angel” in Korean!

At first glance, do you find this word useful to add to your vocabulary? Perhaps so. Angels are a big part of Christian religions, sure, but that’s not the only context they can be used in. These days angels are also popular mythical creatures to use in different forms of media.

“Angel” can also be used as an adjective when describing someone’s generous and helpful efforts toward someone. Angels are also common decorations to have around Christmas time! Therefore, you may get more opportunities to use this beautiful word than you might think. Let’s get to it!

How to say “angel” in Korean

The Korean word for “angel” is 천사 (cheon-sa). To learn how to write “angel” in the Korean language, your first step is to learn Korean letters by knowing the Korean alphabet.

This is a noun that refers to any type of angel. It can be a person, a decoration, or an angel in terms of religion.

Sample sentences:

넌 내 천사야. (neon nae cheonsaya)

You’re my angel.

Note that this sentence uses the most informal structure for speaking and should thus only be used with someone close to you. You can use this in situations where someone has helped you out greatly or shown you deep kindness.

This is, of course, possible to also say to someone you are not as familiar with in a similar situation. In that case, you may want to use a sentence that sounds more polite and say it like this:

그쪽은 내 천사예요. (geujjogeun nae cheonsayeyo.)

You’re my angel.

Instead of 그쪽 (geujjok), you may also opt to use the person’s name or title, whichever is more appropriate.

Other words related to “angel” in Korean

Now, let’s take a look at more words related to “angel.”

“Angelic” in Korean

If you want to make it clear you are referring to someone who is like an angel, you can also say 천사 같은 사람 (cheonsa kateun saram), rather than simply 천사 (cheonsa).

Similarly, if you want to describe someone or something as angelic, you may use the descriptive verb 고결하다 (gogyeolhada).

Sample sentences:

메간씨는 정말 고결한 사람이에요. (meganssineun jeongmal gogyeolhan saramieyo.)

Megan is a really angelic person.

Let’s take a look at the above sentence. “Angel-like” or “angelic” would be their American-English translation. Other ways to phrase the same sentence are these:

메간씨는 천사 같아요. (meganssineun cheonsa gatayo.)

Megan is like an angel.

메간씨는 천사 같은 사람이에요. (meganssineun cheonsa gateun saramieyo.)

Megan is an angel-like person.

Thus, all three are rather similar expressions with each other.

“Angelical” in Korean

You may also want to use the adjective “angelical.” In this case, the same verb, 고결하다 (gogyeolhada), still applies. This same verb can be used when expressing words such as loyal, virtuous, and noble.

“Heaven” in Korean

The Korean word for “heaven” is 천국 (cheonguk). When talking about angels, they’re usually associated with heaven.

Wrap Up

And now your vocabulary is a few words richer again! In what type of settings do you think you’ll be using the Korean word for angel the most? Let us know your answer below in the comments!

Regardless of the languages used, whether Korean, Japanese, or English, we hope you can find an angel in your life!

Did you know that there are two different ways to conjugate the verb 있다? This is essentially as if there are two 있다 verbs. One verb means "to exist," while the other means "to stay." I'll explain how to use them, and when you'll want to conjugate them differently.
