Writing and etymology in Korean
心 (shim) – heart
情 (jeong) – emotion

The Korean word 심정 [shimjeong] (心情) is formed using two characters 心 [shim], which means heart, soul and 情 [jeong], which means feelings, emotions.

To be able to love each other, it is important for us to know about the Heart. It is very difficult to translate the word “Shimjeong” from Korean language. It has a deeper meaning than that conveyed by the word “heart”. It means “to be loving, caring, sensitive”.

Shimjeong is the unrestrained emotional impulse to receive joy through love.

During our lives, we experience love by developing four kinds of shimjeong: child shimjeong, brother-sister shimjeong, spousal shimjeong, and parental shimjeong.
