Hey in Korean, as hey is an exclamation mark, it is hard to translate into direct Korean word. It depends on the situation on which it is used!

In general, 'hey' does appear some Korean pop songs. As more and more Koreans do learn English, and its all contents :-). So, "hey" is sometimes called as its original format, such as /HEI/.

I hope this will help you.

I agree with Chung-Ho Chu but, I'd like plus with the above; it has various meaning such as, 어머나(when astonished), 이런(alternative to "Oh"), 야아, 이봐(alternative of hello; hi; say; listen), 잠깐(alternative of "just a minute) etc. There is also many expresions except those depending on their circumstances.
