Happy Lunar New Year!

Hi everyone!

Back in December, we learned how to say Happy New Year! but it's time to use it again!

February 7-9 those who go by the lunar calendar are celebrating Lunar New Year!

설날 - Lunar New Year

(seon-nal)

새해 복 많이 받으세요! = Happy New Year!

(sae-hae bok man-i ba-deu-se-yo)

Let's break it down:

새해 - New Year

(sae-hae)

복 - Good Fortune

(bohk)

많이 - A Lot

(man-i)

받으세요! = Please receive!

(ba-deu-se-yo)

새해 복 많이 받으세요! = Please/I hope you receive a lot of good fortune in the New Year!

떡국 - Rice Cake Soup

(ddeok-guk)
This soup is soooo yummy! It's rice cake, green onion, egg, and occasionally beef :) This is traditionally eaten on New Years!

철 - Honorific Bow

(cheol)
Each year to honor you parents and ancestors, you perform this bow to give thanks and wish for a good new year!

한복 - Traditional Korean Clothing

(han-bok)
Not many Koreans own their own hanbok anymore (they're $$$$$) but you'll see a lot of idols wearing them to wish fans happy new year!

Happy New Year Everyone!

새해 복 많이 받으세요!
