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.
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!!!!
