Korean, unlike Japanese, is a language in which the speech of men and women have no significant difference.
Non-native Korean learners do not need to worry about gender difference as much as Japanese learners, and at the beginning level, you only need to be aware of how men and women call their older brothers and sisters using different words.
|Speaker’s Gender||Older Brother||Older Sister|
|Male||형 (hyeong)||누나 (nuna)|
|Female||오빠 (obba)||언니 (eonni)|
