    What about your mom’s brother if they are married? can you call them also:

    큰 아버지 (큰 아빠)
    작은 아버지 (작은 아빠)
    ?

    • 조은실(Joanne)

      You shouldn’t call them with the same terms of your father’s brothers. You just call them 큰 외삼촌,or 작은 외삼촌 regardless their marrige.

    Woah~ Thank you for the great lesson, teachers, it really cleared a lot of misunderstandings! ^^
    But, there still remains a question… what does 외아들 mean? I saw it in a song title and this lesson made me wonder about it.
    Anyway, thank you for your fantastic lessons, you are the best!

    Thanks! Finally know how to call my uncles and my aunties..

    But I have a question. My auntie from my mum’s side is 이모. Then what happens if she is married? Like what to call her if she’s married?

    감사합니다!(:
