The Shifting Placeholder

Remember the letter , the placeholder that’s silent when it appears at the beginning position of a syllable? When it appears at the end of a syllable, it’s pronounced like the ng at the end of king.

That means that 안녕 , the word for peacefulness or well-being, is pronounced an-nyeong.

Now let’s move on to some new consonants.
