Note: the word 갈 (kal) means “brown,” and the word 색 (sek) means color, so, literally, you are saying “brown color,” not just “brown.”

When describing the color of things, you need to include both words. For example, to say “brown eyes” you say 갈 색 눈 or, romanized, “kal sek noon” (눈 is the Korean word for “eyes”).
