Hello Learn Words friends, in this article we are going to learn the name of the planets and some expressions in the Korean (한국어) Hangul language. Let's start with a little text explaining what the solar system is, and a big table to increase your vocabulary.

THE solar system (태양계 - taeyang-gye) is a set of planets (행성 - haengseong), asteroids (소행성 - sohaengseong) and comets (혜성 - hyeseong) that revolve around the sun (태양 - taeyang). Each remains in its respective orbit (궤도 - gwedo) due to the intense gravitational force (Jung - junglyeog) exercised by the star, which has a mass much greater than that of any other planet.

We also recommend reading adjectives in Korean or greetings in korean.
