"Young" can be translated into Korean as both "젊다" and "어리다" but how are these words different? Teacher Hyun Woo (현우) will walk you through their similar and different usages in this video.

In short, both 젊다 and 어리다 can be used to mean “to be young” but 어리다 is used to refer to children, whereas 젊다 usually refers to “youth” or people who are relatively young compared to oneself. You can find a more detailed explanation in this video lesson.
