English to Korean translations [Non-PRO]
/ dance club
English term or phrase: dance
dance to music
teri
Korean translation:
Explanation:
It sounds as "Chum" or "Ch'um."

"ch" sounds much like the ch of "ch[ewing]."

It is difficult to express in English exactly the Korean "ㅊ[ch]" sound.

dance to music = 음악에 맞춰 춤을 추다.

dance club = 'literally' mean as 춤 클럽 or 댄스 클럽, but in general, 무도 학원.

Nowadays, Korean sounds dance as "댄스[dance]," as a foreign-rooted word.

More and more English words are adopted into Korean. It's a trend.

HTH.
