In celebration of Hangul Day, we′ve decided to roll out a special series introducing you to the Korean alphabet (consonants only)! We′ve selected a celebrity for each letter of the Korean alphabet as well as a correlating vocabulary word!

We′ll be teaching you how to say the Korean words properly as well as give you some sentences showing you how to use the words in daily conversation - so time to get studying, K-entertainment style!

[Hangul Day Special]  ㄹ is for  RYEOWOOK

ㄹ (L,R)

려욱 (Ryeowook):
1. singer (Super Junior), musical actor, food program enthusiast

1. radio

is perhaps one of the most difficult consonants to pronounce in the Korean alphabet for people learning Korean for the first time, It’s used to sound out the ‘L’ and ‘R’ sound, and in very rare cases, the ‘Y’ sound can even be included, depending on the way a word is written. But very rare.

And it just so happens that Ryewook is included in one of these rare cases, as the first syllable, 려 can be romanized with a R (ryuh) and a Y (yuh), and both will be accepted when said aloud.

As difficult as the consonant is, there are not that many words that begin with the in the Korean dictionary other than Koreanized English words.

Due to this, we chose the Koreanized English word 라디오 or radio for Ryeowook, since it fits this Super Junior member perfectly with his job as the 라디오 DJ on KBS’ Super Junior’s Kiss the Radio for many years now.

1. “려욱이 목소리 듣고 싶어서 매일 10시에 라디오를 들어요” - I listen to the radio at 10PM every day because I want to hear Ryeowook’s voice.
yuh-wook-ee- mok-so-ri deut-go ship-uh-suh meh-il yeol-si-ae ra-dee-oh-reul deul-uh-yo

2. “라디오에 나오는 려욱오빠의 목소리가 너무 좋아요” - I love Ryewook oppa’s voice coming out of the radio.
ra-dee-oh-ae na-oh-neun yuh-wook-oppa-ae mok-so-ri-ga nuh-moo jo-ah-yo

3. “‘슈퍼주니어 키스 더 라디오’하면 려욱이지!” - If it′s ‘Super Junior’s Kiss the Radio!’, it′s Ryeowook of course!
shu-puh-joo-nee-uh kee-seu duh ra-dee-oh-ha-myun yuh-wook-ee-gee
