Red Crowned Crane – Fresh Korean Word of the Day for Friday June 29th

Red Crowned Crane 두루미 – Fresh Korean

Happy Friday and welcome to our final animal word of the day, today we have chosen a very famous and symbolic animal not just in Korea but all over East Asia. It is the Red Crowned Crane or 두루미.

The Red Crowned Crane is considered to be lucky and appears it artwork dating back 100s of years. You most likely see the Crane everyday when living in Korean as it is on the back of the ₩500 coin.

It is also the mascot of the Incheon United Football Team who play in the K-League (Korean Premier).
