    • Jackeline

      I think that´s not Kyung-Eun Choi voice

    • MrKim

      That is Hyojin’s voice. I usually like female voices when learning languages b/c it usually sounds more clearer.

    Yeah, there are not that many Korean words that begin with ㄹ, even in the Korean-Korean dictionary ㄹ is the shortest section. 국어사전에도 ‘ㄹ’ 부분은 제일 짧단 말이에요.
