Wishing “Happy New Year” in Korean Posted by Kyung-Hwa on Dec 28, 2017 in Korean Language, Vocabulary
Hello everyone! With the 2018 New Year fast approaching, it is a great time to learn how to say Happy New Year in Korean. If improving your Korean language skills are on your New Year’s resolution list, this post will help you to learn three different ways to wish a Happy New year so that you can start the year 2018 as a successful Korean language learner.
It is that time of the year when everyone is wrapping up the current year and getting ready for the upcoming year. If you are interested in reading about the Korean superstition and what Korean people do on New Year’s Eve, you can read this article, “Don’t Go to Sleep on New Year’s Eve.”
In this post, you will learn three variations of “Happy New Year!” in the Korean language. As you already know, Korean has several different levels of politeness. The followings are three examples that are commonly used when you wish “Happy New Year!” to Korean people. 새해 means “new year,” 복 means “fortune/luck,” and 받다 (basic/dictionary form) means “receive” in Korean. It is not too difficult to learn all three of them, just pay little extra attention to the changes in the verb endings.
I hope you have enjoyed reading my posts about Korean language and culture throughout the 2017 year. If you have learned any new useful Korean vocabulary, sentence, or cultural aspect from my articles, I would be happy to hear your comment about it. I hope learning more about the Korean culture and studying Korean language is on your new year’s resolution. I wish everyone a happy new year!!!
새해 복 많이 받으세요! (Happy New Year!)
감사합니다! (Thank you!)
