Frequently Asked Question

[Questions]How different are Daegu and Taegu?

Daegu and Taegu are not different. They are the same city located in the southeastern part of the Korean Peninsula. Both English names cannot express the exact pronunciation for the Korean name because the pronunciation systems of Korean and English are totally different. The Daegu city government encourages the name of Daegu according to the 2000 spelling system of Romanizing Korean by the Korea central government. However, still now Taegu is also used, especially in overseas countries. Thank you.
