Brother-in-law in korean word

The term “brother-in-law” in Korean is “숙부” (sukbwu). It is pronounced similarly to the English word “sook-boo”. The word “숙부” is composed of two characters: “숙” (suk), which means “married”, and “부” (bu), which means “son”.

So, literally, the word “숙부” means “married son”. However, in Korean, the word “숙부” is used to refer to one’s brother-in-law. It is also used to refer to the husband of one’s sister-in-law.

The word “숙부” can be used both formally and informally. When used formally, it is typically used to address older brother-in-laws and sister-in-laws. When used informally, it is used to address younger brother-in-laws and sister-in-laws.

If you need to refer to more than one brother-in-law or sister-in-law, you can use the plural form of the word, which is “숙부들” (sukbwudeul). So, there you have it! Now you know how to say “brother-in-law” in Korean.
