[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 :)]
Good morning! And welcome to today's letter: it's a circle-like shape, and it's often used as a place holder for other letters.
ieung. Kinda like yoong (Yoongi?). It's also the yoo in Eugene (BuzzFeed~).
For example, if you just want to say a/oh/eh/ya/yo etc., you can just insert this letter so that the other letter can stand on this own. This letter is rarely seen (probably never) being used alone, and I doubt that there are other ways this letter is used besides the fact that it's used a place holder. Here are some examples of place holding!
See if you can read some of these!
Words with these place-held letters.
험 (ui-hom) means Danger (Taemin? BTS?)
군 (eu-ggun) means Army (BTS~)
체 (eug-che) means... body (Ji...Jimin)
And lastly but not least, 음악 (eumag) means music.
When I first saw the pronunciation for this, I was like "NO WAY". But apparently it is! Ieung, it sounds weird. @kpopandkimchi
I never learned the names of the letters when I learned Hangeul so now i can finally tell people how to spell things! haha I-euuuung!!!
부 인 ( bu in) wife 영 ( yeong) zero 예 ( ye) yes 일 요 일 (i ryo il) sunday 어 머 니 ( eo- mo-ni) mother 일 주 일 ( il -jju -il) one week 웃 다 (ut - tta) laugh 우 리 ( u-ri) us
That's absolutely right :)) @XyChan
I learned ㅇ as being a place holder that it is a silent character. You can't spell milk in korean without it. 우 유
