I Had a Dream in Korean

Hi guys, it’s your Korean teacher Jun! I’m pretty sure everybody has many dreams every night even though you really don’t remember. Sometimes it makes your morning feel so fresh and nice, sometimes it makes your day start ruined. Sometimes ‘a bad dream’ seem like a magic word to make people hug or cuddle each other lol. Anyway, then how do native Koreans say I had a dream in Korean? How do they say I dreamed something in Korean?

How To Say I Had A Dream in Korean

꿈 꿨어요

[ggum ggwosseoyo]
I had a dream


Basic form : 꿈 꾸다
반말(informal non-honorific) form : 꿈 꿨어
Negative form with 해요 speech style : 꿈 안꿨어요


꿈 means ‘dream’ as a noun and 꾸다 means ‘dream’ as a verb. It seems 꾸다 can be used alone but native Koreans use them together in almost time. 꾸다 is not 100% natural sometimes to mean ‘to dream’.

꿈 = Dream

Very interestingly, 꿈 is really similar to an English word ‘dream’. It describes dream that you have while you are sleeping and also dream that you wish for your future. It seems like almost cultures consider ‘dream’ is something we imagine. I always found this word so romantic and poetic in a lot of languages.
