National anthem of South Korea

The lyrics of the National Anthem of South Korea

애국가

동해 물과 백두산이 마르고 닳도록,
하느님이 보우하사 우리나라 만세.

무궁화 삼천리 화려강산,
대한 사람, 대한으로 길이 보전하세.

남산 위에 저 소나무 철갑을 두른 듯
바람서리 불변함은 우리 기상일세.

무궁화 삼천리 화려강산,
대한 사람, 대한으로 길이 보전하세.

가을 하늘 공활한데 높고 구름 없이
밝은 달은 우리 가슴 일편단심일세.

무궁화 삼천리 화려강산,
대한 사람, 대한으로 길이 보전하세.

이 기상과 이 맘으로 충성을 다하여
괴로우나 즐거우나 나라 사랑하세.

무궁화 삼천리 화려강산,
대한 사람, 대한으로 길이 보전하세.

Aegukga

Donghae mulgwa Baekdusani mareugo daltorok
Haneunimi bouhasa urinara manse.

Mugunghwa samcheolli hwaryeo gangsan
Daehan saram, daehaneuro giri bojeonhase.

Namsan wie jeo sonamu cheolgabeul dureun deut
Baram seori bulbyeonhameun uri gisang-ilse.

Mugunghwa samcheolli hwaryeo gangsan
Daehan saram, daehaneuro giri bojeonhase.

Ga-eul haneul gonghwalhande nopgo gureum eopsi
Balgeun dareun uri gaseum ilpyeondansimilse.

Mugunghwa samcheolli hwaryeo gangsan
Daehan saram, daehaneuro giri bojeonhase.

I gisanggwa i mameuro chungseong-eul dahayeo
Goerouna jeulgeouna nara saranghase.

Mugunghwa samcheolli hwaryeo gangsan
Daehan saram, daehaneuro giri bojeonhase.

Patriotic Song

Until the East Sea’s waves are dry, Mt. Baekdu worn away,
God watch o’er our land forever, our Korea manse.

Rose of Sharon, thousand miles of range and river land;
Guarded by her people, ever may Korea stand.

Like that Mt. Namsan armoured pine, standing on duty still,
wind or frost, unchanging ever, be our resolute will.

Rose of Sharon, thousand miles of range and river land;
Guarded by her people, ever may Korea stand.

In autumn’s, arching evening sky, crystal and cloudless blue;
be the radiant moon our spirit, steadfast, single and true.

Rose of Sharon, thousand miles of range and river land;
Guarded by her people, ever may Korea stand.

With such a will, such a spirit, loyalty, heart and hand,
Let us love, come grief, come gladness, this our beloved land.

Rose of Sharon, thousand miles of range and river land;
Guarded by her people, ever may Korea stand.

The National Anthem of South Korea was written by An Chang-ho and composed by Ahn Eak-tae.

South Korea has not an official motto.
