How to Say ‘Goodnight’ in Korean
Let’s talk about how to say “goodnight’ in Korean.
Although several phrases will be taught in this lesson, it may be best to pick one formal and one less formal expression and practice trying to use those expressions as much as possible.
In addition to knowing how to say ‘goodnight’, you may wish to use the expression ‘see you tomorrow’ (내일 봐요 – nae-il bwa-yo) in certain situations too.
Here we go!
Formal ‘Goodnight’ in Korean
1. 안녕히 주무세요 (an-nyeong-hee joo-moo-se-yo)
If you have studied ‘How to Say Goodbye in Korean‘, then you will be aware of the word 안녕히 (peacefully) already.
The next word, 주무세요, is to formal version of 자다 (to sleep). In order to show respect in Korean, you not only need to add ‘시’ into expressions, but you also need to change certain words.
From the lesson on saying goodbye, we learned that 계세요 comes from the honorific version of 있다. Likewise, if you want to say ‘sleep’ in a formal setting, then you should use the word 주무세요. Use the expression 안녕히 주무세요 when speaking to people who are your senior or who are a generation or two older than you.
2. 편안한 밤 되세요 (pyeon-an-han bam dwe-se-yo)
Another expression you can use is 편안한 밤 되세요. This comes from the verb 편안하다 (to be comfortable) and the word 밤 which means ‘night’ so the expression’s literal meaning is something like ‘have a comfortable night’.
Standard ‘Goodnight’ in Korean
1. 잘 자요 (jal ja-yo)
The verb 자다 means to sleep, and 잘 means ‘well’ so the expression 잘 자요 means ‘sleep well’. You can use this expression to say goodnight to somebody.
2. 좋은 꿈 꿔요 (jo-uhn kkoom kkweo-yo)
There are several Korean verbs that usually are made up of two separate words. 꿈을 꾸다 is one of these, 꿈 means dream so literally 꿈 꾸다 could be translated as ‘dream dreams’, but you should see the two words together as an expression meaning ‘to dream’. 좋은 means ‘good’ this expression means something like ‘dream some good dreams’.
Use these expressions with people who are of a similar age and rank to, but you don’t know too well.
Informal ‘Goodnight’ in Korean
1. 잘 자 (jal ja)
2. 좋은 꿈 꿔 (jo-uhn kkoom kkweo)
If you are speaking to somebody that you are close to, who is the same age or younger than you, then you can drop the 요 from the end of the regular expressions.
Bonus: ‘Did you sleep well?’
When you see somebody the next day, you can ask them if they slept well.
Formal ‘Did you sleep well?’
1. 안녕히 주무셨어요? (annyeonghi joo-moo-sheo-sseo-yo?)
The verb 주무시다 has been put into the past tense and asked as a question.
Regular ‘Did you sleep well?’
1. 잘 잤어요? (jal jasseo-yo?)
Informal ‘Did you sleep well?’
1. 잘 잤어? (jal jasseo?)
Now you should have a good understanding of how to say ‘goodnight’ in Korean.

[GOSSIP NEWS] SM Entertainment idols taking lead roles in dramas stirs up argument on fairness0 11
Nowadays it's common to see idol turned actors on movies and dramas. However, it's still definitely uncommon to see them take lead roles only on their third, second, or even very first production. As this unusual case continued to occur with several SM Entertainment idols, an argument on fairness is taking over online communities.
In upcoming MBC drama 'Missing 9', EXO's Chanyeol will playing one of the superstars who ride on the airplane that ultimately crashes on an island. He may not be the main character, but he plays a crucial role. Another EXO member, Kai, will be taking the lead role in upcoming KBS drama 'Andante'. Netizens have already showered him with criticism for playing the main male character. And just yesterday, Red Velvet's Joy announced that she'll be playing the lead in upcoming tvN drama 'The Liar and His Lover'.
Netizens claim that idols turning into actors are not an issue. However, their jump start to the top is unfair. Some netizens claim that Chanyeol, Kai, and Joy's ability to land lead roles in dramas is an abusive use of power by SM Entertainment. It's also argued that it's unfair to rookie actors who struggle to take even small roles in productions. On the other hand, some netizens claim that SM idols have the right to take the lead roles as they too have worked hard for their roles.
Comments state, "Heol.. lead role? Isn't it the first time Joy is acting..? That's just too much..", "They don't deserve to be criticized but you know they're really given the 'golden spoon'", "It's an issue because they're playing lead roles from the start. Do you really think directors want to use idols for leads?", and more.
Do you think it's unfair that SM idols are landing so many lead roles in dramas?
