Happy New Year, or 새해 복 많이 받으세요 (that’s how we say Happy New Year in Korean)!
Sure, the end of the year is a great for partying, drinking and having fun with out families and friends. But each new year brings its own challenges and personal goals, and it’s that time of year to ready ourselves for self-improvement! That’s right, now that the holiday season is behind us, it’s time to pledge how we plan to better ourselves and set our New Year’s resolutions – in Korean!
So get ready to sit back, evaluate what you have done during the past year and what you plan to change in the year to come.
This post teaches you how to write the most common New Year’s resolutions in Korean. Here we go!

Well, there you have it! Those were the most popular New Year’s resolutions and how to write them in Korean.
The new year brings so many possibilities. For some of us, we might meet that special someone. For others, it may be about a decision to study Korean no matter what it takes and meet our language study goals. Whatever that goal may be, ew have made the decision today to change your life, and learned some Korean in the process!
Take the one New Year’s resolution that resonates most with you, download the picture, and share it on your social media to help others hold you accountable and to give yourself motivation.
Whether or not this motivation lasts until the end of the year is another issue. Research shows that 45 percent of Americans normally set New Year’s resolutions. On the other hand, a mere 8 percent of them are successful in in eventually hitting their goal. That’s weak!
We won’t let this happen to you – especially if your goal is studying Korean!
