 April 3, 2021

By  Smriti

We all know that feeling of excitement when your close ones text you, or the feeling of disappointment when they don’t respond to your messages. You could pretty much use one word to express any emotion in Korean, but if you want to spice it up a little bit or appear sophisticated, try some of these expressions out.

You might have a rough idea of how to say "I'm happy" or "I'm sad" in Korean, but what if you want to express various levels of happiness or depression? I've compiled a list of different ways to express emotions in Korean. I’ve also included the English meanings and how to pronounce them.
