Hyung is what the guys call their older brothers, and brothers, and their close friends the are like their brother. Oppa is for the girls same meaning as Hyung, but it also means boy friend which makes it confusing sometimes to know which one it its.
dongseng : to address a female younger sister, and to their close friends the are like their little sister.
namdongseng: to address a male younger brother, and to their close friends the are like their their sister brother.
누나 nuna - boy's elder sister, and to their close friends the are like their older sister, I also think it means girl friend too not for sure though
언니 eonni - girl's elder sister, and to their close friends the are like their older sister
So there you go ^^

Okay so first, in Korean, there are male and female versions of certain words. So;
Noona and Unnie botth mean older sister.
If you are a younger male, talking to an older female: she would be Noona.
If you are a younger female, talking to an older female; she would be Unnie.
Dongsaeng means younger person.
If you are a younger man talking to an older man: he would be Hyung.
If you are a younger female talking to an older man: he would be Oppa.
The best place to visit is the Talk To Me In Korean website! They explain everything so that it is easy to understand!

Oppa is who you would address an older brother if you were a girl and it is also used if you were close with a boy who is older than you. If you were a boy and had an older brother then you would call him hyung and even if you were just very close to someone. Dongsaeng literally means younger sibling so it could be a girl or a boy but you can also use it with people who you have a close relationship with. Unnie is what you would call an older sister if you were a girl and noona is normally what boys would call older girls.

'rahmayaniksm' is right oppa is older male. Appa is father. You can also say abujee. That is not exact romanization but for pronunciation purposes. (Abujee)

Noona is the term used by males for older girls.
Unnie is the term used by Females for older girls.
Oppa is the term used by females for older boys.
Hyung is the term used by Males for older boys.
Donsaeng is younger sibling for either gender by either gender.

Using an older brothers first name would be seen as a sign of disrespect or as a challenge to who''s really in charge.

My brothers fought about that when my younger brother called him Henry on accident instead of hyung. Henry would't talk to him for a week.

I just used Henry. That is not my older brother's real name.

kenahgaio said:
They're respectful terms used by Koreans when addressing others. Noona, or Nuna, is used by males to address older females. Unnie, or Eonnie, is used by a female to address an older female. Hyung is used by males to address older males. Oppa is used by woman to address older males. Dongsaeng is used by either gender to address someone that is younger than them, and can be used for males or females. In Korea, everyone who is born on the same year is the same age, so you only call them hyung, oppa, unnie, or noona if they are at least one year older than you. Dongsaeng should not be under to describe anyone who was born in the same year as you, regardless of month.
