How To Say Rock Music In KoreanPosted by Mike Schuck
There are many types of music that people listen to, and most people have their favorites. Some may like listening to songs with lyrics that speak about love or life, while others prefer music with strong bass lines and rhythms.
Music can be categorized into several genres, such as jazz, rock, pop, classical, and more. Technically speaking, any song with a composer is considered part of the genre “music”, but we will not discuss this here!
Rock is one of the top music genres around the world, and Korea is no exception. Many Koreans enjoy listening to various styles of rock, from heavy metal to alternative music.
There are certain words and phrases used frequently when talking about rock music, so let’s review these and see how you can improve your pronunciation! After all, even if you do not necessarily consider yourself an expert on the genre, everyone should know some basic terminology.
I hope you will continue to learn as you explore other languages through learning new vocabulary.
Decide what kind of rock you like
A lot of people get confused when it comes to labeling music as “rock” or not. Some people may refer to hard, fast songs with heavy drums and bass lines as rock, while others may call anything with guitars and vocals a band name. Technically speaking, anything can be referred to as rock if you include genre classification systems like defining punk as music that is socially aware and features lyrics about politics and social issues.
However, there are some universal traits all types of rock have in common. These characteristics aren’t always mentioned directly under the term “rock”, but they contribute heavily to how people describe the music.
These qualities include using tone and intensity during singing and chanting, experimenting with rhythm and timing, incorporating striking sounds and silence, using powerful instruments such as guitar, bass, and drum, and mixing these instruments together to create an immersive experience for the listener.
Identify some songs that you like
In fact, there are so many rock music styles and genres! Some of your favorite bands may not be categorized as “rock” but definitely contain rich lyrics and melodies. You can also find lots of hard-to-listen-to music that no one else likes except for maybe their friends or family.
If you really want to learn how to say rock music in Korean, then it is important to know what types of music people consider to be rock. The word 가수 (ASU) means singer-songwriter and typically refers to artists such as Paul McCartney, Adele, Taylor Swift, etc.
But aside from those artists who explicitly call themselves 롭이라고 쓸래합다 (ruchiri daro geuljang), most people refer to them as 패슐 (paeungyo). This is because they are mostly known for writing catchy songs with strong vocals and/or powerful drums.
Find a theme for your post
When it comes down to it, speaking about music is just like talking about anything else – you need to know what they topic is!
In this case, the topic is rock music. So, how do we talk about it? We can discuss which artists are popular or important, or we can discuss the influence that their songs have had on other musicians and genres.
We can also discuss the lyrics of each song, as well as the sounds used during recording and composition. All of these components make up the music, so knowing them is very important!
When discussing the genre of rock, there are three main points that you should mention. These are rhythm, melody, and voice (or instrument).
Rhythm is the steady pulse that underlies all music. In most cases, the drummer is responsible for creating this beat, but guitarists and bassists play into it as well.
A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself whether the rhythm was intentional or not. If you could tell it was put in by someone else, then it was probably already established and you just have to recognize it.
For example, if you hear a short note followed immediately by a long one, this creates a rhythmic pattern. This does not necessarily mean that it is repeated twice per measure, but rather once every two notes.
This is called an accented half-note.
Research Korean words to use in your post
Many people have their own music tastes, which is why there are so many types of music. Some like soft rock, others heavy metal, and still more may enjoy hip hop or jazz. There are even some who cannot stand any type of music!
When speaking about music, what kind of music you like is important.
Use proper grammar
When it comes down to it, there’s not too much difference when speaking about music genre-wise between people who speak English and people who don’t. All languages have roots that help form the structure of words, and music is no exception!
I want you to focus more on what kind of music they like rather than how to say its name in Korean.
Choose your photos
Choosing your rock music pictures or album covers is an important part of having successful translations!
Music styles are characterized by their cover artwork, so make sure you know what style of rock music your song belongs to before picking yours.
For example, if your song is described as “hard” then look for images with bright colors and heavy emphasis on guitars. For a more upbeat song, choose an image that features lots of dancing or something that looks like it could be a song itself!
Avoid using too many logos because these might not match up with other artists of the same genre. Pick simple, solid graphics instead. Try looking through Google, YouTube, and/or Amazon to find them!
Note: If possible, take your own picture of yourself performing the lyrics so that you can add some decoration and emphasize on the vocals.
Create the post
As mentioned earlier, there are several ways to describe rock music to native Koreans. One of the most common is to use lyrics that refer to strong emotions or messages. These songs make you feel good about yourself or life by making you laugh or cry, for example!
Another way to describe rock as “fast” sounds correct, but some people may not know what speed means in relation to music. For them, it can be referring to the tempo (the number of times per minute) or the frequency ( how high or low the notes go).
Some other terms include 화아리 (hwaarari), 날지 않음 (namji angmeum), 차곡하다 (chaegok hada), and 순순IC(sujjaesik)!
General term: 럭클(rpyeolk) is often used when talking about rock music in Korea.
