Korean Numbers, Days of the Week and Months

I just read through my blog and I realised that I haven’t written anything about numbers, days of the week or months. So this post is dedicated to those people who were like “hEy wHErE DID THE NUMBERS, DAYS OF THE WEEK AND MONTHS GO???”

NUMBERS

Numbers in Korean is actually simple; a lot simpler that English numbers tbh. The only somewhat hard ones are numbers from 1-10 and they aren’t even hard. Okay wait the other confusing thing is that there are two number systems in Korea. The Sino-Korean which derived from China and the Native Korean system deriving from Korea. I’m gonna show y’all both because we use both

NUMBER               SINO-KOREAN               KOREAN

1                             il 일                                   hana 하나

2                             ee (i) 이                             dul 둘

3                             sam 삼                              set 셋

4                             sa 사                                 net 넷

5                             o 오                                   da-seot 다섯

6                             yuk 육                               yeo-seot 여섯

7                             chil 칠                                il-gop 일곱

8                             pal 팔                                yeo-deol 여덟

9                             gu 구                                 ah-hop 아홉 

10                           ship 십                              yeol 열

Numbers 11-19 in Sino-Korean is ship-(insert Sino-Korean number from 1-9)

Numbers 11-19 in Native Korean is yeol-(insert Native Korean number from 1-9)

Double digit numbers that end in 0

Sino-Korean: (insert number of the tens digit. e.g. in 20 the tens digit number would be 2) then add 10 to it. For example, 20 is ee(i)-ship 이십, 30 is sam-ship 삼십. If the number is 21 then you add the word for 20 (ee-ship) 이십 with the word for 1 (il) 일; ee-ship il 이십일.

Native Korean: There is no pattern, nor order in Native Korean, making it harder to use.

20-seumul 스물 30-seoreun 서른 40-maheun 마흔 50-shin 쉰 60-yesun 예순 70-ilheun 일흔 80-yeodeun 여든 90- aheun 아흔

For numbers like 21 you add the word for 20 (seumul) with the word for 1 (hana); seumul-hana.

DAYS OF THE WEEK

Days of the week in Korean is also REALLY EASY to learn because you only need to change one word. The name for the days of the week derive from Chinese as well.

Monday- wol-yo-il (wol meaning moon) (yo-il meaning day) 월요일

Tuesday- hwa-yo-il (hwa meaning fire) 화요일

Wednesday- su-yo-il (su meaning water) 수요일

Thrusday- mok-yo-il (mok meaning tree/wood) 목요일

Friday- geum-yo-il (geum meaning iron/metal) 금요일

Saturday- to-yo-il (to meaning dirt) (to is pronounced shortly so don’t say the name of the letter) 토요일

Sunday- il-yo-il (il meaning sun) (This il is different to the number 1) 일요일

MONTHS

Pronouncing months in Korean is very, VERY easy. you add the word for the number of the month (Sino-Korean) and add wol to it. For example, January- il-wol 일월, Feburary- ee-wol 이월, March- sam-wol 삼월, ect all the way up to December, which is ship-ee wol 십이월. Can’t be easier than that. Easier to understand and learn compared to October meaning the 8th month actually being the 10th month.

“You’re not Fallen, are you?” The question pops out of my mouth before my head can censor it.
“From everything I’ve heard, that would just make me more sexy to you Daughters of Men.” He finishes taping the last bit of the blanket. “What is it that you all see in bad boys?”

Hi Taylor!!💘 @taylorswift

I wanted to let you know that me and my sister, Louisa! Will be seeing you in Manchester Night 1 & Night 2!😆

This is where we will be seated!😘
Night 1 - Block 217, Row S, Seats 476-477
Night 2 - C4, Row EE, Seats 22-21!💕

We are both so excited to see you!! Seeing you in Glasgow back in 2015, was a dream come true! We both miss you so much!! The night was incredible and it honestly couldn’t of been better, it was my highlight of that year! I know this may be impossible but we would love to finally meet you! I’ve been a fan for a long time and would do anything to finally see you in person.💘

You’ve made a huge impact in my life by giving me the confidence and reassurance that I’m more than enough. You’ve taught me to stand up for myself and most importantly learn to accept and love my insecurities! It would be an extremely special moment if I was able to talk to you face to face! I want to give you the biggest hug and let you know how important you’re to me. If me and Louisa got to meet you I’d cherish that moment forever! It would make me so happy, more than words could describe!💖

I love you so much and can’t wait to see you soon!!☺️Xx

Lots of love,

Ellie!💗
