Hyunwoo Sun

Hi, everyone. My name is Hyunwoo Sun (선현우). I was born and raised here in Korea and I am still living in Korea, but I LOVE learning foreign languages so I have learned (and am still learning) English, Japanese, French, Chinese and Spanish, and I’m planning to learn more. With the help of some really awesome people, I made this place with the goal of making it easier for learners of the Korean language to continue learning without giving up. I hope you will enjoy learning with us, and I’d love to hear from you about how we can make this site and our lessons better!

I love watching action movies, making videos, taking photos, learning new languages, traveling, and b-boying… or making a video about all of these things! : )

Thank you!

    First thank you very much for your passion in teaching us this difficult Korean language. It is really great to have found such a good online school in the Internet. It is really both a big help and fun.
    I haven’t been on your homepage for a while.- but now I am desparately missing audio files SAMPLE DIALOG and KEY EXPRESSIONS which you offered in the past. It was a big help help to better understand conversations.
    Are they still available for download?

  • Shanmuga Priya

    its was great to know this website and learn this language even though i search for different websites to learn korean and why i wanted to learn korean because i know hindi,english,tamil( only to talk not to read and write),german and so i want to know many new language and i wanted learn this language is because i started to watch korean drama and it has been 6 years and i can understand little of korean language and i can watch korean dramas without sub ,but now i want to read and write korean language thats why and so i would happy if you teach me korean to read and write

    Hi hyunwoo,
    I’m from San Diego and have been listening to the mobile podcasts for a few months now but I just wanted to comment on how much help you’ve been for me. They don’t offer classes for Korean at most of the colleges around here too so I’ve definitely relied on you and Kyeong-eun. Anyways I appreciate the help you’ve been giving me, and so does my girlfriend, who’s Korean. Just finished with level one and now I’m off to the second one. By the way, you and Kyeong-eun are soooo funny.

      Hi Nicholas,

      Thanks for your comment!! Great to hear that you find our website useful! ^___^ Please continue learning!

    When I started learning Korean I found it too difficult so I thought on giving up learning the language but then a friend told me about TTMIK and thanks to your marvelous and funny lessons I’m still learning it. You are great teachers =) I like your humour btw :P

    I read you learned Spanish. It would be awesome if you could do some PDFs explaining maybe the basic in Spanish. I’m from Chile and I know lot of people want to learn Korean but they can’t find some good websites in Spanish to learn it and as they don’t know English they can’t study with you :(

    Muchas gracias por tu ayuda! Saludos ^^

    안녕하세요! 선현우 선생님! 질문이 있어요! 제가 레벨3에 있는 ‘위해/위해서’라는 문법 사항을 점검했고 선생님 ‘this is mainly for written language’이라고 해서 구어로 ‘for’이라는 표현 어려워요..This expression has always bothered me in korean and I have never really known how to say in naturally so i usually just dont say it at all haha could you help me with this? Thankyou!
