Korean Alphabet Series: ㄱ
[Regularly, the Korean Alphabet is organized in 한글, or hangul. But in this case, I'm going through them by the order on the keyboard. Also, if I make a mistake, don't be afraid to comment! Before you 'report' this card: don't worry--I know the alphabet series isn't K-Pop related but it'll soon be. I'm still going over the alphabet :)]
We're almost done with QWERTY!
We're on the "R" key today, or ㄱ.
ㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱㄱ.
It kinda looks like a gun... so maybe you can remember it by Gun (Or maybe even Gun from D-Day if you've watched that drama). But I was originally thinking Hang Man, cause it kinda looks like the hanging thing. Yeah.
But ㄱ isn't actually a "g" you're thinking about. It's more like a k, but instead a g. I know, it's hard; this is one of the hardest things with learning Korean. It's hard to explain myself; It's in between k and g. ㄲ is romanticized as "kk", so that might help you, but I really don't know how to explain ㄱ.
If you want to make a harder "g" sound, or "kk", then Shift+R=ㄲ.
Warning: Do not confuse ㄱ with ㅋ! ㄱ is more g-sounding than ㅋ; ㅋ is literally K, in Kai (EXO).
Examples! (You don't have to be able to read it; just look for the alphabet!)
(Chin-gu). It means friend!
요 (ga-yo). It means pop song; notice that it's also included in the music show, "Inkigayo".
족 (ga-chog). It means family.
같이 (ga-tchi). It means together.
We can do this 같이!!!!
