Saranghae and Popular Korean Words Every K-drama Lover Must Know



Saranghae and Popular Korean Words Every K-drama Lover Must Know

One of the best things I like about K-Drama is that they use a lot of repetitive words during conversations. This makes me understand Korean movies more quickly even though I do not know the Korean language very well. Since I am a K-drama fan, I have learnt about a few Korean words which are commonly used in almost every K-drama. Here are a few words which you must also know if you love watching K-drama.

Saranghae or Saranghaeyo

Saranghae is one of the most commonly used words in K-dramas, especially if the movie is romantic. Well, you must have heard this many times if you watch Korean movies. ‘Saranghae’ or Saranghaeyo is the formal way of saying ‘I love You’ which is used by couples who fall in love with the other person.


When answering a phone call, Korean people usually never uses ‘anneyeong’ or annyeonghaseyo’ for greeting the other person in line. Rather, they use ‘yeoboseyo’ when the other person in the call is unknown.

Eonni/Unni and Noona

The word Unni or Eonni is used by K-drama women to address their elder sister, close female friends or relatives. Likewise, men will use the word Noona that too means elder sister, female relative or a close female friend.


Annyeonghaseyo is another commonly used K-drama word that simply means greeting a hello. The casual way to greet is annyeong which K-drama actors use to bid goodbye.

Harabeoji and Halmeoni

Harabeoji is the word Koreans use to address their grandfather. Halmeoni is the term used for grandmother. Both the words can be used to address older people as well.


While conversing in the Korean language, you can refer to your younger sibling by calling them dongsaeng. The term applies to both male and female gender.

Ahjussi and Ahjumma

While dongsaeng is used to address younger siblings, ahjussi is used to address a married or middle-aged man. Similarly, while addressing a middle-aged woman or a married lady, you call her ahjumma.

Bogo sipeo or Bogo sipeoyo

When we miss someone, we say ‘I want to see you’ or ‘I miss you. In K-drama, if a person misses the other, they say ‘bogo sipeo’ that means the person misses the other one. A politer way to say the same is bogo sipeoyo.

Yeppeuda and Yeppeuyo

When we have a crush on someone or want to say to someone that he/she is pretty, we say ‘you look pretty or you are pretty. In K-drama, the actors use yeppeuda to express similar kinds of feelings. Yeppeuyo is a polite way of saying the same.


Gwaenchanha is another popular Korean phrase used in K-dramas which means ‘I’m fine’ or ‘I’m okay. The term can also be used with a question mark while asking the other person whether the person looks fine or not.


One of the most common words uttered in K-drama during an intense situation is the word eotteokhae. This is because this K-drama word is an expression which means ‘what should I do?’. The word can also be used in place of ‘no way’ or ‘oh no’. To use the word politely, you can add ‘yo’ and make it eotteokhaeyo.

Appa and Eomma

Appa and Eomma are used to address father and mother in the Korean language. These are an informal way of addressing mother and father which the formal terms are abeoji for father and eomeoni for mother.

Oppa and Hyeong/Hyung

Oppa is one of the K-drama words used by women to address their elder brothers. Due to wave culture (Hallyu) in Korean movies, many women use the term Oppa to address boyfriend, close male friend or husband provided he is older than the woman. Likewise, Hyeong or hyung is used by men to address their close friends, elder brother or relatives.

Sunbae and Hoobae

When attending school or while at the workplace, K-drama actors use sunbae to refer to or address their seniors. Similarly, when they address or refer to their juniors, the actors use the term hoobae.

Joesonghaeyo and Joesonghamnida

When we commit a mistake and make a promise never to do that mistake again, we apologize and make a promise. In the Korean language, joensonhaeyo or josonghamnida is the formal way to express the same feeling.


While joesonghaeyo is the formal way of apologising, mianhae is a less formal way to say sorry in K-dramas. Though you can add ‘yo’ and make it mianhaeyo to sound polite.


Mwo term in Korean language means ‘what’. This term can be heard many times in K-dramas when the actors are usually unsure about what they have heard or when they come to know about something new.

Jersey and Jebal

Both the words jebal and juseyo means the same and is used to express the feeling ‘please’. However, both the terms are used as per situation demand. For example, when ordering food in a restaurant, you must say juseyo but the latter one is used only when you are desperate for something or beg for anything.

Gamsahamnida and Gomawo

Gamsahamnida or kamsahamnida is used in the Korean language to say ‘thank you. When you want to say thank you to a close person, you may use an informal way gomowoyo or gomawo instead.


Aja is a Korean term used for fighting. Aja is used by Koreans to cheer up people or lift others spirits when fighting.


Omo is used in K-dramas when the actors face a surprising situation. Omo can also be used when you are excited about anything or feel very happy. In other terms, Omo is an expression we use for ‘oh my gosh!’.


The term jinjja means seriously or really. They can be used when you talk to a close relative or friend or a person who is of your age. The formal version of jinjja is jinjjayo and is used when we talk to a stranger or older person. Jinjja can also be sued like a question or to mark an expression of disbelief.


Kamjagiya is one term we use when we want to say ‘you surprised me’ or ‘you scared me. The word is more often used when the K-drama actors want to express a feeling of surprise or shock when an unexpected circumstance takes place.

About Erik Per Sullivan’s role in Malcolm in the Middle

Every kid of the early 2000s will know Dewey of Malcolm in the Middle since it was one of the most popular television shows featured during that time. The show was a comedy family drama and starred Frankie Muniz, Bryan Cranston, and Erik Per Sullivan. It centred around a dysfunctional family that had genius children.

Many fans claimed and discussed Dewey on Reddit mentioning, “Dewey is one of my favourite characters on the show. And on the last three seasons, in my opinion, he showed to be smarter than Malcolm, and even more mature that Malcolm and Reese sometimes.

She claimed that Erik and Bryan were close to each other and Bryan did justice to Erik’s acting potential.
