If you're at a grocery store and you want to ask the employees if the beef is grass-fed (rather than grain-fed) how do you say that in Korean?

Thanks.

목초사육 (grass-fed) 쇠고기 입니까? 곡물비육(grain-fed) 쇠고기 입니까? i don't think employees care. they will just say how the beef taste good or source.

emacs is right, but if you ask be prepared for the employee to look at you as if you came from outer space. Employees in your average supermarket won't have a clue, you may have a better chance in a specialty butcher shop somewher. Most Koreans either don't know there is a difference or simply don't care. It's not at all a common question in this country.

You must think that I can read Hanguel characters. Well, I can mostly, but another list member asked me this question and may not have that skill, so I'll see if I can get the Anglicized spelling right. Please feel free to correct me.

Mok Cho Sa Yuk (grass-fed) Swe Go Gi Ip Ne Gga

Might be some error(s) in the 2nd part.

I've never understood why "우" is latinized as "u" rather than "oo" when the latter is more accurate and less ambiguous.

곡물 is gongmul because the ㄱ and the ㅁ change the pronunciation.
