English to Korean translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase: arrows
arrow as in bow and arrow a weapon
Korean translation:화살 (hwa-sal)
Explanation:
You specified the plural form - arrows. The plural form is 화살들 (hwa-sal-deul) and the singular form is 화살 (hwa-sal). However, using the singular form when an English speaker would use the plural form is very common in Korean.

I can't say for certain without seeing the context, but I would say that you would be better to use the singular form.
