Names of Body Parts in Korean

When I went a hospital with problem of my bladder, I was not sure how to call the bladder in English.  Good thing I had my dictionary at that time and I was okay to explain my problem.  I knew how to speak English at that time, but my knowledge of English vocabulary wars poor.  After I got the experience, I memorized almost all names of our body parts.  Here is good example pattern you can speak with just changing a noun, “I am hurting my (leg)/ (다리) 아퍼요/ da lee a peo yo/” or “I am hurting my (eye)/ (눈) 아퍼요/ nun a peo yo.”  Let’s learn more words below you can add into the pattern.
