How to Say Green in Korean

What color are Korean 10,000 Won notes? Yep, you guessed it, they’re green! Watch the video below to learn how to say “Green” in Korean.

If you want to say “Green” in Korean, you say “cho-lok sek.” Or, in Korean…

초 록 색

That phrase translates directly into English as “Green Color.” 초 록 (cho-lok) means green, and 색 (sek) means color.


Cant pronounce those Korean letters? Don’t worry! You can learn them for free right here.

Let’s look at an example. Say that you’re in Korea admiring a big beautiful mountain (Dobongsan is nice in the springtime). Your Korean skills are pretty poor, but you just have to say something. No worries! Just point to the mountain and spit out the phrase “green mountain.” Ready? Put a big, silly smile on your face and say cho-lok san. Or, in Korean…

초 록 산

Again, 초 록 means green, and 산 means mountain.
