Koreans celebrate Valentine’s Day in a differently from the West. The guys are not the ones who give presents to the girls, instead girls give fanciful chocolates to the guy they like. In return, the guy will give candies to the girl the following month (14th Mar) which is known as White Day (화이트데이) to reciprocate their love.
Since Valentine’s Day in Korea is more like the girl confessing her love to the guy instead, Korea’s Kumyoung Karaoke, recently held a vote for the best confession song. Majority of the vote goes to IU’s Good Day (좋은 날) as the best confession song on Valentine’s Day.
So, how do you say Happy Valentine’s in Korean?
