I am a beginner in Korean and I just started learning one week ago. I am still in A1 and I want to say this in korean:

I am dizzy

I found this way: 자꾸 어지러워

and its pronunciation is : jakku eojileowo

y question is : it is the correct way of saying this for everybody, for example, for older,younger, family member,etc, or do there exist different ways for every person?

Recently, he is bothering me for money frequently. 요즘 자주 용돈을 달라고 한다.

Today, he is bothering me for money repeatedly. 오늘따라, 자꾸 용돈을 달라고 한다.

@자주 is used to describe the character and 자꾸 is used to describe out of general pattern.


The word for dizzy in Korean is 어지럽다. You don't need to use 자꾸 - this word indicates something that "keeps happening" - I think you would say "자꾸 어지러워" if you were getting dizzy a lot, as in describing a symptom or a problem you've had lately.
So you just need the word "어지럽다" to say "I am dizzy (now)", but you should change the ending:

  • 어지러워요 is a polite ending, and it's the safest form for beginners.
  • 어지러워 is a casual form that you'll here between friends and to younger people, but you need to be careful using it at first.
  • 어지럽습니다 is a very polite / formal form.
  • thank you I said this: 자꾸 어지러워 in a song from kpop and I think is correct because a group kpop girl said this because they are people korean, do you think?

    It is correct - but it means more like "I keep getting dizzy" If you just want to say you are dizzy right now, it's enough to say just "어지러위(요)".
