Knowing when to use the correct word is one challenging part of learning Korean. For instance, maybe you want to learn the correct pronunciation for wine in Korean.

Actually, the best word for learners to use is wain as there is a big push to learn English here.

Some of the older Korean vocabulary is replaced with the English word sounded out in Korean. If you come across two choices for a word in Korean and none of them sounds like English, that’s indeed the best one to use. It might be recent and likely more commonly used. Yes, it’s not a hard and fast rule but also a good guideline to use to keep your Korean flow smoothly.
