Korean 101: Ouch!
We already learned some sick words here and some hospital words here but what about just general aches and pains!?

아프다

To hurt
(ah-pue-da)

아파요

It hurts! (ah-pah-yo)

Listen at 1:18 to hear the word pronounced!

Things that can hurt:

Head - 머리 (meo-ri)

Heart - 마음 (ma-eum)

Foot - 발 (bal)

Ear - 귀 (kwi)

Body - 몸 (mohm)

Eyes - 눈 (noon)

Now if the thing that hurts ends in a VOWEL you need to add "가" (gah)

If it ends in a CONSONANT you need to add an "이" (ee)

눈이 아파요 - My eyes hurt (noon-i apayo)
머리가 아파요 - My head hurts (meo-ri-ga apayo)

It's just the way Korean works :)

If you speak Spanish, think of it like how you don't say "...y ingles" you'd change the "y" to "e" just cause it sounds better!

If something hurts you and you want to say 'ouch' you can also just shout 아파! (ah-pah!)

Who else uses this word a lot!?

also instead of saying "ow" they say "앗" (aht) but they don't really pronounce the "t" so it's more just "아" (ah)
