English term or phrase:Engagement
I am going to propose to my girl friend, which she is Korean and I would like to inscripe some thing on the inside of the ring in Korean.
Is there a special saying or symbol which would mean some thing to the fact of : I will love you for ever, to my one true love, ect....
Explanation: I agree with "yakhon", meaning engagement, but the general practice in KOrea is to inscribe the semi-official term "yakhon kinyum", which stands for "in memory of engagement". Although "unyak" is a good suggestion, I rather think that it is too a general word meaning every kind of promise.
On the other hand, if you wish, you can use "saranghae", which just means "I love you", or "yongwonhee", meaning "forever". You can have millions of expressions that you love her. Once I saw a German guy who presented his German fiance a necklace in the shape of 愛(love). He was a dentist and made that shape by himself using silver. Well, good luck!
