Summary

The following is a summary of two important points that are easy to remember.

  • 목 means neck, which is the place where two parts are connected. You can also find the word used for wrists (손목) and ankles (발목), which is easy to understand and remember.
  • The word 가락 describes something that is long and stripy. Therefore, the fingers (손가락) and toes (발가락) can be seen as 가락. In addition, the hair is 머리카락.
