Learn Korean with BTS: “DNA”

You’ve probably heard by now, but it’s worth stating again: BTS has officially made history by having the most-viewed K-pop group MV of all time. As of the time of this writing, the group’s “DNA” has garnered 349,087,608 views.

And the number is only getting higher.

In celebration of this monumental achievement, we thought it would be great if we used their song to learn a little Korean. I mean, there’s no better way to learn than through BTS, right?


We’d thought you’d agree. After all, who doesn’t want to sing along with Jungkook and V—and actually understand what they’re saying?

So let’s take a look at a few of the lyrics—mainly the pre-chorus—and break them down in a simple, easy-to-learn way.

Pre-chorus Line 1:

걱정하지 마 love [keok-jeong-ha-ji-ma love]

Okay, this one’s probably pretty simple, even if you haven’t studied much Korean. The Korean in this line can be broken down into two main parts, and if you’re familiar with K-dramas, you’ve probably already committed both parts to memory.

Let’s break it down.

걱정하(다) + 지마(ㄹ다)

keok-jeong-ha-(da) + ji-ma(l da)

For now, you can ignore the parts in parentheses and just focus on the core words. The root of the first part is 걱정 (keok-jeong), and it simply means “worry.” For example, you may feel “걱정” (keokjeong) about a difficult exam that’s coming up or if you’ve made a mistake and suspect you will get in trouble.

걱정 (keokjeong) is a noun. It can be made into a verb by adding 하(다). You can ignore the 다 for this sentence. Simply put, 걱정 (keokjeong) the noun becomes 걱정하(다) keok-jeong-ha-(da) the verb, and this verb mean “to worry.”

Let’s look at it this way:

걱정 (keokjeong) = worry (n.)

걱정하다 (keokjeonghada) = to worry (v.)

Pretty simple, right? You can now understand the first half of the sentence!

So let’s take a look at the second half “지 마” (ji ma). Technically, 지 마 (ji ma) comes from the dictionary form “지 말다” (ji malda), but you don’t need to know this. You can completely ignore this for now because you will not need this for casual, spoken Korean.

Instead, let’s focus on the meaning of “지 마” (ji ma). If someone says a sentence that ends with “지 마” (ji ma), they are telling you not to do something. In other words, they are saying DON’T do something.

And, again, if you’ve watched K-dramas, you probably know this.  It’s very common to hear sentences such as “하지 마” (don’t do it) or 가지 마 (don’t go) in Korean dramas, and even in many Kpop songs.

So let’s combine the two parts of our sentence:

걱정하(다) (keok-jeong-ha [da])  = to worry 지 마 (ji ma) = don’t

걱정하지 마 (keok-jeong-ha-ji-ma) = don’t worry

And the line is: 걱정하지 마 love (keok-jeong-ha-ji-ma love)

Basically, Jungkook is telling you “don’t worry, love”

Congratulations! We’ve got the first line done. You might be surprised to learn that it’s simpler than you think!

Just for fun, look at the following words and see if you can figure out what they mean:

가지마 ga-ji-ma

하지마 ha-ji-ma

떠나지마 ddeo-na-ji-ma

울지마 ul-ji-ma

So, let’s look at the next line and see what it means.

Pre-chorus Line 2:

“이 모든 건 우연이 아니니까”

In the first line, Jungkook is telling you NOT TO WORRY, and in this line, he is explaining WHY.

What’s the reason, then?

First let’s take all the words and see how they translate into English. Some of these words have particles or are CONJUGATED, which means that they are changed from their original forms to make the sentence grammatically correct. At first, we will ignore the conjugations and focus on just the meanings of the words.

이 (ee) = this

모든 (mo-deun) = all

건 (geon) = thing, stuff

Note: 건 is a combination of the words 것 (geot), which means thing, and the particle 은 (eun), which attaches to nouns and makes them the topic of the sentence. FOR NOW, YOU CAN IGNORE THIS GRAMMAR RULE AND SIMPLY REMEMBER THAT 건 (geon) MEANS “THING OR STUFF.”

우연 (oo-yeon) = chance, coincidence

Note: the 이 (ee) at the end of 우연 (oo-yeon) does NOT mean “this.” It’s a subject particle. It means that 우연 (oo-yeon) is the subject of the sentence. If this is too difficult for you now, you can IGNORE IT AND STILL UNDERSTAND THE SONG.

아니(다) (a-ni-[da]) = no, not

Note: The dictionary form of “no, not” is 아니다 (a-ni-da), but, like the example above (걱정하지 마), the last part 다 (da) is dropped for grammatically reasons. Just remember that 아니 (a-ni) means “no, not.”

니까 (ni-kka) = because

Note: This word “because” attaches to the end of verbs (meaning it’s put on the end of words like 하다 (ha-da) and 아니다 (a-ni-da). It REPLACES the 다 (da).

Now that we know all the words, let’s look at the sentence again.

이 (this) 모든 (all) 건 (stuff) 우연 (coincidence)이 아니 (not) 니까 (because)

Ee (this) mo-deun (all) geon (stuff) oo-yeon (coincidence)ee a-ni (not) ni-kka (because)

So, what is it in English? Let’s change the word order and see what we get:

Because all of this stuff is not coincidence, OR MORE NATURALLY

Because none of this is coincidence.

That’s a pretty complicated sentence, so if you got all of that, go ahead and pat yourself on the back. Don’t worry too much if you don’t exactly get all the ends and outs of the grammar just yet. If you are passionate about your Korean studies, you will pick it up in no time! In fact, we have developed a study plan here that will help improve your Korean fluency in no time, if that’s what you want.

But enough of that. Let’s take a look at what we’ve got all together.

걱정하지 마 love

이 모든 건 우연이 아니니까

Keok-jeong-ha-ji-ma love

Ee mo-deun geon oo-yeon-ee a-ni-ni-kka

Don’t worry love

Because none of this is coincidence

That’s A LOT of Korean, especially if you’ve never formally learned. And if you can understand all of that, there’s a good chance that you will be great at Korean one day! But there are still two more lines in the pre-chorus we should look at, so first let’s see what they are.

Pre-chorus Line 3:

우린 완전 달라 baby

oo-rin wan-jeon dal-la baby

This is a shorter sentence, and it’s pretty simple, too. Breaking it down, we have

우리 oo-ri = we, us

Note: In the song, V and Joongkuk say 우린 (oo-rin), which is just 우리 (oo-ri) + 는 (neun), a topic marking particle. You can ignore this and just know that 우린 “oo-rin” also means “We”

완전 wan-jeon = completely, extremely

달라 dal-la = different

Note: This verb has already been conjugated. For now, you do not need to know the dictionary form.

So this sentence, when put together, looks like this:

우린 (we) 완전 (completely) 달라 (different) baby

oo-rin (we) wan-jeon (completely) dal-la (different) baby

Rearrange the words again, and what do we get?

We are completely different, baby

Great! That’s already three lines of DNA that you can now understand without subtitles. If you want to remember these words better, I suggest you use them in your daily conversations. For example, don’t think that you REALLY love BTS. Think that you 완전 (wan-jeon) love them. Or even that you 완전 좋아해 (wan-jeon joh-a-hae) them. It may sound silly, but it will help you remember the words!

Now we only have one line left, and then we should be able to understand the whole pre-chorus. That’s pretty exciting. So let’s look at the next and final line.

Pre-chorus Line 4:

운명을 찾아낸 둘이니까

Un-myeong-eul cha-ja-naen dul-ee-ni-kka

You should probably recognize some of this. 니까 (ni-kka) was used before in line two, and it means “because.” Since you already know what this word means, you can guess that this sentence is also explaining something. Let’s look at the words one-by-one.

운명(을) un-myeong-(eul) = destiny

Note: Here, the 을 eul means that the word is the “object” of the sentence. You can ignore this grammar if you do not want to focus on it.

찾아내(다) cha-ja-nae-(da) = to find, to discover

Note: The dictionary form ends with 다 (da), but, like before, this word is already conjugated. The song uses 찾아낸 (cha-ja-naen), which makes the word an adjective meaning “found, discovered.” Simply put: 찾아낸 (cha-ja-naen) = FOUND, DISCOVERED.

둘이 dul-ee = two people

니까 (ee) ni-kka= because

So the sentence is:

운명 (destiny)을 찾아낸 (found, discovered) 둘이 (two people) 니까 (because we are)

And the translation will look something like

Because we are two people who have discovered destiny.

And we’re done! I know this last sentence is longer and a bit more complicated than some of the others. But if you can remember the specific vocabulary words, you shouldn’t have a problem remembering what this means. So try singing along next time you listen to “DNA” (and every time for that matter). You will find that the meaning will come naturally to you, and pretty soon you won’t have any difficulty understand it at all!

Now that we have finished the whole pre-chorus, let’s look at our hard work all together and admire ourselves for a little bit.

걱정하지 마 love

이 모든 건 우연이 아니니까

우린 완전 달라 baby

운명을 찾아낸 둘이니까

Keong-jeong-ha-ji-ma love

Ee mo-den geon oo-yeon-ee a-ni-ni-kka

oo-rin wan-jeon dal-la baby

un-myeong-eul cha-ja-naen dul-ee-ni-kka

Don’t worry love

Because none of this is coincidence

We’re completely different baby

Because we’re two people who’ve discovered destiny

I’ve been translating Korean songs for many years now, but I must admit, it’s still pretty exciting. Whenever you can understand words that you didn’t know before—especially when they are sung by your bias—there’s a certain feeling of achievement and happiness that you just can’t describe.

And that’s not to mention the feeling you have when you translate a record-breaking song. I’m sure we’re all proud of BTS for their achievement. Likewise, we need to be proud of ourselves for our hard work and being able to understand the words they are singing. After all, learning any foreign language to any degree is a remarkable feat.

So go celebrate! Now’s the time to turn on “DNA” and jam like you haven’t before. As you dance and whistle, don’t forget to sing along to improve your memory and get one step closer to achieving your Korean study goals!

I hope you’ve realized through this exercise that studying Korean can be fun.

Especially with BTS.

After all, it’s in our DNA.

FREE 90-day Korean Summer Study Plan

What better way to kick off the summer than with a Korean study plan? While people all across the world are preparing to show off their hot new summer bodies, you can do even better by shaping your perfect summer mind!

Learning Korean is a great way to make your summer meaningful. Just think: how could would it be to listen to BTS and not need subtitles? Or understanding what your Oppa says the first time he says it?

I know what you’re thinking. We might be getting ahead of ourselves a bit.  It takes time to learn a foreign language, and If you’re anything like I was, you probably feel a little hesitant. After all, learning a language is hard, and it takes time. To begin with, there are all those new words, not to mention the grammar, and you may be thinking: where do I even start?

The good news is that language learning is all about consistency, and you can learn while still enjoying all your favorite K-pop songs and Korean dramas. This means that you can make quick progress and see the results at the same time.

That’s right. You can even learn through Korean music and TV shows?

In fact, as a student at UGA, translating K-pop songs on my YouTube channel was one of the many ways I studied the language for free.

Below, I’ve constructed a completely free (seriously, 100% free) 90-day Korean study plan for the summer! At the end of the challenge, you will have learned 47 Korean grammatical structures almost 900 vocabulary words! Even better, this plan provides ways to include K-pop and K-dramas to your study regime, so you never have to feel bored!

Ready? Here’s your 90-day 2018 Korean Summer Study Plan for the Absolute Beginner.

What You’ll Need:

  1. Talk To Me in Korean–this website offers the most comprehensive free Korean lessons on the web. Our plan covers the first 47 lessons!
  2. Memrise–you can visit this website or download the free app to get access to thousands of Korean vocabulary words. The absolute best and easiest way to learn Korean vocabulary.
  3. Viki–Viki is one of the most popular Asian entertainment sites on the net and gives users access to a variety of Korean and Chinese dramas. Viki’s learn mode feature allows users to follow along in both English and Korean subtitles (which is more helpful than you may think!). If you’re not living in Korea, it’s important to make sure that you have as much exposure to the language as possible.
  4. YouTube–YouTube gives users access to thousands of Kpop songs and translations. Make sure to break up the monotony of studying and get creative. Songs are a great way to keep you interested in what you’re learning and help improve your pronunciation.
  5. Interpals–This free penpal website is an amazing language-learning tool. You can find friends from all over the world for free. By making a Korean friend, you can learn more about Korea, its culture, and even take the chance to practice speaking in Korean. Do remember that the site is about making friends (not finding teachers), but you can still find people who appreciate the time you are taking to become invested in their language and culture. They will definitely help you out, and the better your Korean gets, the more opportunities you will have for real communication.

What to Expect:

  1. You can expect 45 minutes to an hour of lessons per day. Talk To Me in Korean offers free podcasts that range anywhere from 10 to 25 minutes and offers free worksheets to go with each lesson. Studying one set of Memrise vocabulary can take up to 15 minutes–depending on your speed and accuracy. Any drama or song adds to the time (but that’s at least fun, right?).
  2. You can expect 1 grammar lesson and 15 vocabulary words a day. This isn’t as difficult as it sounds, and don’t worry: you’ll have plenty of time to review. If the vocabulary seems daunting, that’s okay. You might not remember them all, but you’ll still make a ton of progress and learn hundreds of words. As you review more and get more familiar with the language, the words will come naturally.
  3. Expect to do some writing as you practice the alphabet and the language.
  4. Reserve time for speaking–even if it’s home alone and in front of your bedroom mirror. Taking the time to learn pronunciation is critical in learning a new language. If you feel shy, don’t worry. We’ll include tips to get over that below.

Daily Overview

blog calendar

This is the breakdown for May.

As you can see, the plan starts on May 1. This day is devoted completely to learning the Korean alphabet, Hangeul. Hangeul is an efficient and easy-to-learn alphabet, consisting of 14 consonants and 10 vowels. Though you can probably learn it in a matter of hours, it’s best to make sure that you completely familiarize yourself with the alphabet before moving on.

To start learning Hangeul, click here. Part 2 can be found here.

Tip: Make sure you practice speaking and can pronounce each sound. You don’t have to be perfect, but Korean vowels can be especially tricky.

*Optional* Start watching a drama on the first day of the month. Pick any drama you want Viki as long as it has thirty episodes or less and is available in learn mode. For the first month, watch the drama as you usually would with subtitles in your native language.

Start here for the TTMIK grammar lessons. Day 2 starts with lesson 1. Notice that TTMIK lessons are spread out over two days so you have a day to learn and a day to review the lesson. Make sure that you review the lesson even if you know it well. The lessons will be easy at first, and it will be tempting to move ahead. Of course you can, but for best results, you should stick to the plan (especially if you’re someone who easily loses motivation). This plan is designed so you don’t burn yourself out and allows you to have enough time for when lessons get more challenging.

Remember: Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Start here for Memrise lessons. Make sure to do one set a day and keep up with words you need to review. You will notice as you go along, that you will be prompted to review vocabulary from previous lessons. It’s really important that you do this so that you get the best results possible.

Tip: Memrise has a feature that awards users points for how many words they’ve studied. You also get points for reviewing words. Each lesson has a leader board where users with the top scores are recognized. You can be on there too! You can even be on the top.

Don’t forget! Listening to K-pop and other Korean music is a great way to learn the language. If you’re not doing it already, listen to at least one or two songs a day. Maybe select your favorite and try to understand its translation! Sing along and see how much you understand after the end of the three months!


Here is the daily schedule for June. By the end of June, we have hit 61 days, making us more than 2/3 of the way through with the plan.

The plan follows the same format, but keep in mind that you may need to start putting in more effort. We move to TTMIK level 2 in June, and the number of vocabulary words you will need to review will be substantially higher (This is a good thing! It means you know more words now!)

Two important things to note:

TTMIK Level 2 starts on June 19th.

You will finish the memrise set (and all 866 words) on June 26th. But don’t stop Memrise. Keep reviewing.

866 words in two months is A LOT. Don’t worry if you can’t remember them all. You’ll have the whole month of July just to review these words.

There’s a catch. For many, it may be tedious to review words that have already been studied–especially if they were studied recently. Don’t let this kill your drive. Keep persisting, and you will make great progress.

Tip: Now that you’ve watched your drama once with subtitles in your language, try watching it in learn mode! Don’t forget to listen to your music!


Here’s the final month of our 90-day Korean challenge.

As noted, Memrise is all review, and TTMIK is level 2. The challenge ends July 29th. If you stick with it, you’re guaranteed to see great results!

Tip: Now try watching your drama with only Korean subtitles. It doesn’t matter if you can’t understand most of it. See how much you’ve learned, and you’ll pick up more on the way. Just for fun, try and repeat after your favorite characters. You’ve probably learned more than you think you have.

Other considerations:

Make sure to practice speaking every day. It’s best to find a friend to speak with, but if you’re too shy, start out practicing at home. Do this even if it makes you feel uncomfortable, as it’s better to get a handle on it early.

Don’t worry about making mistakes. It’s normal. No one expects you to sound like a Korean native. Most people are happy to help anyone who is taking the time to study their language and won’t judge you.

A good way to practice is to find an article (or something in Korean) and read it! Even if you don’t understand what it says. It will train your muscle memory. Record it and listen back for where you can improve, and speak with others. Try to speak slowly and clearly. For men, it may help to have a deeper voice.


If you’re really up for a challenge, you can try doing 1 TTMIK lesson a day for a total of 89 lessons (plus one hangeul). This will put you at the start of Level 4! This is only recommended for people with high motivation. Make sure not to burn yourself out.

Now What?

You probably have a few questions about finishing the plan.

  1. How good am I going to be?
  2. What should I do next?

The answer is to make sure you have reasonable expectations. While you won’t be fluent (any program that promises fluency in this short amount of time is a scam, by the way), you will have a strong foundation and the resolve needed to continue your Korean-learning journey. You will be able to say and understand many things in Korean.

If you plan on studying Korean at university after the summer break, you will have a great head start. For example, this equates to maybe a third-semester Korean course at the University of Georgia. You will have a leg up on many others.

And remember, it’s just step one. Even if you aren’t going to study Korean at a higher level, you still have many Memrise lists and TTMIK lessons available. Don’t get so caught up in the goal that you forget to enjoy the journey. If you do, you might not ever find the motivation to get there.


Studying Korean doesn’t have to be boring and is easier than you think. All you need is a good plan. With our 90-day Korean Summer Study Plan, you have all you need to make tremendous progress in your Korean-learning journey. Every material you need is available online for free, so you never have to miss out.

By incorporating K-pop and K-dramas into your study routine, you can add a little flavor to your grind. So give it a try, and you’ll be amazed at how much you know at the end of the summer!
