Wuthering Heights Vocab Pull (Korean/한국어)

I adore Wuthering Heights. It isn’t a feel good book by any means, but its cathartic and engrossing as long as you aren’t one of those people who have to love and support a novel’s characters, because you definitely don’t love or even like these characters. But you read to see the horrific sequence of events that transpires and see everyone’s mistakes play out.

So I bought the Korean translation.

Here’s some vocab.

We are just 3 students who wish to share the love and joy of learning Korean through lesson posts and translations! We are doing this for fun, based on our experience and questions we ask native speakers. We are not fluent! Just passionate  ~ Hannah, Shelbi, and Jordan
