모든 사람 (modeun saram) [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Remember a while back when I told you before that sometimes there are various ways to say the same thing in Korean? Well an example of that would be with our Word of the Day today.

모든 사람 (modeun saram) | “everyone” or “all people”

Sounds a bit familiar right? Maybe the word 여러분 (yeoreobun) might come to mind when referring to “everyone”. However, this is in fact another way to say that.

So how do you use it?

Example:

  • 모든 사람들이 먹을 필요가있다. (modeun saramdeul-i meog-eul pil-yogaissda.) | “All people need to eat.” or “Everyone needs to eat.”

여러분 (yeoreobun) is used more often to address large crowds and typically has the effect of “May I have your attention” or “Ladies and Gentlemen, attention please”. However, you can still use 모든 사람 (modeun saram) when talking about large groups of people. 

That’s it for today!

  1. Thank you! Somehow the way you explain each word and it’s use sounded easy for me. I basically learn some techniques, although I’m still learning “Basic” Korean, I find your blog very helpful.

    ps. basic Korean is not so basic for me. Their grammar is very much different with my native language. *sigh*
