<p>< <strong>ㅅ vs. ㅆ</strong> <strong>pronunciation in Korean</strong> >.</p>
<p>There are <em> two different Korean</em> <em>s's as well</em>.</p>
<p> a plain <em> ㅅ </em> <em>and a tense ㅆ. </em>.</p>
In this case, though, the tense ㅆ sounds a little more like the English s than the plain one. The tense ㅆ in Korean is a just a bit more tensed, with a harsher hissing sound that is normal in English, and it has the familiar raised pitch of tense consonants. Try saying 싸 with a good tense ㅆ.
To pronounce a nice 'plain' or soft ㅅ, you might imagine there is an h sound before the ㅅ. Try to saying 사랑 in a breathy, romantic way, and your ㅅ will probably be about right.
