"Konglish" Pronunciation

or

Phonetically Different Words?

You decide.


 Important Foreword

Sometimes Korean pronunciation of various "loan words" come from languages other than English, which definitely accounts for the difference in pronunciation.  However, I have opted to keep this page because it is often assumed that English has the same pronunciation.

In defense of Konglish Pronunciation, let me say that English is usually the one that is "wrong", as it is often the only language that has a different pronunciation.

That written, I still feel that this page is worthwhile to raise the consciousness of those serious about learning correct English pronunciation.
