대세는 백합 (Lily Fever)
↳“There will always be people that don’t like us.  Don’t mind them and do what you can, when you can.”


Consonants that appear at the end of a syllable are called 받침. When pronouncing ㄱ, ㄷ, ㅂ, ㅅ and ㅈ as third position consonants you make them softer than if they’re in the first position. (Which is why ㅅ sometimes sounds like a “t”, I know a lot of you get confused with that) 

When a 받침 consonant is followed by a syllable beginning with a vowel the 받침 connects with the vowel sound. When connecting to 이 sometimes the sound changes:

ㅌ + 이 = 치

같이 (together) is pronounced 가치 

끝이에요? (are we finished) is pronounced 끄치에요? 

The syllable following a 받침 consonant doesn’t always have to begin with a vowel for the pronunciation to change:

When ㄱ comes before a syllable beginning with ㄴ, ㄹ or ㅁ it is pronounced as ㅇ not ㄱ!

먹이를 먹는 고양이 (a cat eating food) 먹는 is pronounced 멍는 

한국말 잘하시네요 (you speak Korean well) 한국말 is pronounced 한궁밀  

When ㄴ is followed by ㄹ the ㄴ is changed into an “L” sound:

선룽 (a subway station in Seoul) is pronounced 설룽  

Finally ㅎ, when this consonant is in 받침 position followed by either ㄱ, ㄷ or ㅈ they become aspirated:

어떻게 (how) is pronounced 어떠케 

하얗다 (white) is pronounced 하야타 

몸이 좋지 않아요 (I don’t feel good) 좋지 is pronounced 조치 

One more thing about ㅎ is that when followed by ㅇ it becomes silent 

좋아하다 (to like) is pronounced 조아하다 

Double 받침 are rare but allow there to be more words in the language. 
There are 13 double 받침:

ㄲ, ㅆ, ㄳ, ㄵ, ㄼ, ㄽ, ㄾ, ㅄ, ㄺ, ㄻ, ㄿ, ㄶ, ㅀ 

The last double 받침 consonant joins the next syllable if the next syllable starts with a vowel:

이 책 읽어 주세요 (Read this book for me)  읽어 is pronounced 일거

When ㅅ is the second consonant in a double, it is pronounced ㅆ


ㄲ and ㅆ do not separate. They are both transferred to the next syllable

When the following syllable begins with a consonant or there is no following syllable: one of the doubles are silent (There is no rule to which one all the time):

여덟 (eight) is pronounced 여덜

값 (price) is pronounced 갑

삶 (life) is pronounced 삼

ㄶ/ㅀ followed by a syllable beginning with ㄱ, ㄷ, ㅈ makes them become  aspirated to ㅋ, ㅌ, ㅊ. The ㄴ & ㄹ stays at the end of the syllable:

많고 is pronounced 만코

싫다  is pronounced 실타

싫지만 is pronounced 실치만

(많 is the word stem for many, 싫 is the stem for hate)

When two double 받침 are before a syllable starting with a vowel, the second consonant joins the second syllable. However the consonant ㅎ is silent when it is followed by ㅇ so the characters cancel each other out (allowing the remaining ㄴ or ㄹ to to move):

괭찮아요 (It’s ok) is pronounced 괜차나요
