Five days to go and its going to be 2009 already. Despite the economic depression that hit the world late this year and the gloomy projections on growth for 2009, there is still hope. Moreso, these global situation will not stop us from spreading cheers and greeting each other for a blessed new year.
So much for the intro, i just wanted to share how to greet Happy New Year in Korean:
새해 복 많이 보내세요 (Saehae bok manhi bonaeseyo). This is literally translated as To send many new year blessings. Somehow this is similar to how we always say Have a Prosperous New Year.
If you just want to stick to the usual Happy New Year, you can say 행복한 새해 보내세요 (Haengbokhan saehae bonaeseyo). This means to send a happy new year.
