하나 [ha-na] one

하나론 모자라
ha-na-ron mo-ja-ra
One is not enough

*하나론(하나(one) + 로(with) + 는(topic particle))
(*-(으)로 is used to indicate direction, method, cause and status and can be translated as ‘with’, ‘through’, ‘as’, ‘for’ or ‘to’.
으로 for nouns ending in a consonant, 로 for nouns ending in a vowel.)


[dul] two

둘이 눈만 맞으면 하하 히히 호호
du-ri nun-man ma-jeu-myeon ha-ha hi-hi ho-ho
When the two of our eyes meet, haha, hihi, hoho

*둘(two) + 이(subject particle) +
눈(eye) + 만(only) +
맞으면(맞다(coincide) + 으면(if, when)) +
하하 히히 호호 (haha, hihi, hoho)
(*둘이 can mean two people, a couple, a pair.
In English, there is a strict distinction between singular and plural, but in Korea the concepts are mixed and the plural is usually used as the singular.
In this sentence, 눈(singular form of eye) is used instead of 눈들(plural form of eye, 들 is a plural suffix).)

Now you guys one two three

*이제(now) +
너희(you guys) +
