Happy Birthday Song

My collegues know how passionate I am in learning Korean so whenever there are birthday celebration in the office, they would tease me to sing the Happy Birthday Song in Korean.

It’s i think one of the basic songs that you can learn in Korean which goes like this:

새일 축하합니다

Saengil chukhahamnida

 

생일 축하합니다

Saengil chukhahamnida

 

사랑하는 <이름/ >

Saranghaneun <name-i/sshi>

 

생일 축하합니다

Saengil chukhahamnida

The tone is of course the same as the happy birthday song in English.  Funny that 축하합니다 actually means congratulations if you translate it directly and people wouldn’t normally say congratulations on your birthday at least in our culture and some other country’s culture.  Some think its rude to say congratulations to a person who is actually aging or adding a year on his age.  

한국어 음악을 아주 좋아해요.
그리고 한국어 잘 하고 싶어서 가사을 이해하겠어요.
