Everyday Korean – How to say “Happy New Year” in Korean

by Min

새해 복 많이 받으세요.

Sae Hae Bok Mani Ba Deu Se Yo.

As New Year is coming up, I thought I’d teach you how to say “Happy New Year” in Korean although it’s long to say!

In Korean, we say

새해 복 많이 받으세요.

Sae Hae Bok Mani Ba Deu Se Yo.

The literal translation means,

새해 Saehae means “New Year”

복 Bok means “Luck”

많이 Mani means “a lot” or “many”

받으세요 Badeuseyo means “please receive”

So, the literal translation means “Please receive a lot of luck in New Year”

Yea, I know it’s long, but as you practice it, it will get better.

Let’s practice!

Saehae Bok Mani Ba Deu Se Yo.

 

Happy New Year Everyone!
