Sample Sentences Using Sports In Korean

잠이 안올때는 밖에 나가서 운동하고 오면 좀 더 낫지 않을까? [jam-ee an-ol-ttae-neun bakke na-ga-seo woon-dong-ha-go oh-myeon jom duh nat-ji an-eul-gga]?

Other Ways To Call Sports in Korean

You just have learned how to say Sports in Korean. Instead of saying 운동 for Sports, you could also say 스포츠 [seu-po-cheu], which essentially says the English word Sports in Korean. This may be more widely used in Korea, as 운동 is more used to describe ‘exercising body fitness’ in Korean. For example, when people say 운동가자 [woon-dong-ga-ja], it could be translated into ‘let’s go to the gym to work out’ in Korean. Although the word 운동 generally means sports, it is more widely used as the body fitness in a gym.
