Five Second Hanja (5) Day – 날-일 (sun, daily, Japan)

Posted in Five Second Hanja (Theme), Korean language by 노강호 on October 8, 2010


Another easily remembered pictogram. With a slight twist of the imagination, ‘Day’ resembles the sun and is the character used for days of the week, eg: Friday – 금요일, and Birthday – 생일. It is also used for sun, Japan and daily.


Get the idea?

This series of posts is not aimed to teach hanja, I am not in the least qualified for such a  task, but to simply highlight some of the important and simpler characters. For information on stroke order, radicals and the two elements of a character (spoken – meaning), I suggest you obtain a dictionary such as; A Guide to Korean Characters.
