How To Say Spring Is Here in Korean

봄이 왔어요

[bom-i wasseoyo]
Spring is here

 

Basic form : 봄이 오다
반말(informal non-honorific) form : 봄이 왔어
Negative form with 해요 speech style : 봄이 안왔어요

 

봄이 왔다 is the most common phrase to say ‘Spring season is here again’. 봄 means ‘Spring’ and 왔다 is a past form of 오다 which means ‘come’ in Korean. So 봄이 왔다 means ‘Spring came’.

 

As a Korean. It sounds like ‘Spring season visited to us again’ because ‘오다’ is often used to greet other people.

Markers With The Phrase

You must remember 2 things for this phrase. 1st, you have to use subject markers 이/가 only, not topic markers 은/는. It sounds unnatural with 은/는. 2nd, you have to keep the marker. It sounds unnatural with a dropping marker.
