동해 물과 백두산이 마르고 닳도록

하느님이 보우하사 우리나라 만세

무궁화 삼천리 화려강산

대한사람 대한으로 길이 보전하세

남산 위에 저 소나무 철갑을 두른 듯

바람서리 불변함은 우리 기상일세

무궁화 삼천리 화려강산

대한사람 대한으로 길이 보전하세

가을 하늘 공활한데 높고 구름 없이

밝은 달은 우리 가슴 일편단심일세

무궁화 삼천리 화려강산

대한사람 대한으로 길이 보전하세

이 기상과 이 맘으로 충성을 다하여

괴로우나 즐거우나 나라 사랑하세

무궁화 삼천리 화려강산

대한사람 대한으로 길이 보전하세

#Translation-

until that day when the waters of the eastern sea run dry and mt. baekdu is worn away

god protect and preserve our nation

three thousand li of splendid rivers and mountains, filled with roses of sharon

great korean people, stay true to the great korean way!

as the pine atop mt. namsan stands firm, as if wrapped in armour

unchanged through wind and frost, so shall our resilient spirit

three thousand li of splendid rivers and mountains, filled with roses of sharon

great korean people, stay true to the great korean way!

the autumn sky is void and vast, high and cloudless

the bright moon is our heart, undivided and true

three thousand li of splendid rivers and mountains, filled with roses of sharon

great korean people, stay true to the great korean way!

with this spirit and this mind, give all loyalty

in suffering or in joy, to the love of country

three thousand li of splendid rivers and mountains, filled with roses of sharon

great korean people, stay true to the great korean way!
