자기 (Honey/Babe) - Chagi


자기야 (Informal.) - Chagiya


여보 (Husband) - Yeo Bu


여보야 (Informal.) - Yeo Bu ah


If im not wrong, yeobo can use for both husband and wife. 


남 편 Nampyeon = husband


야 = ya


"Ah" used when the word before is end with consonant, if im not wrong


여 보 야 = yeo bo ya


Sushimi ya, triplem ah

How do you say "of course" in Korean?

  1. 물론이요 / mullon-iyo, translates to roughly “That goes without saying”.
  2. 당연하죠 / dangyeon-hajyo, like exclaiming “Of course”.
  3. 그럼요 / geureom-yo, usually the reply to a question or request. This one has many translations, from “Well then” to “Certainly”.
  4. One could also answer an order from a superior with a simple 예 / ye, or 알겠습니다 / algesseumnida, meaning you will do as said.
  5. 역시 / yeokshi could sometimes fill the role of “Of course” or “That's so typical”, said under one's breath, in the sense “Ah I knew it, of course he’d spend all the money on drinks”.
