kutsuwamushi: from a Married to the Sea Comic (edumacation)

In English, we have mornings, afternoons, evenings,and night-times. Korean has at least one extra word for the times of day, though - one I think is very useful.

새벽 - the early morning before sunrise, from about four to six

The other words for the times of day match pretty closely to their English equivalents, as far as I can tell.

아침 - morning (also: 오전)
오후 - afternoon
전녁 - evening
- night

Telling actual time in Korean involves two sets of numbers, so I'll save them for another day.
