[Ask Hyojin] What is "대한민국"?

Do you know the name of Korea in Korean? Yes, it's 한국. But did you know that there's another way to call Korea in Korean? 대한민국 is a more formal name of Korea. If you are talking about Korea in a rather formal situation, how about calling it 대한민국 instead of calling it 한국? Or, you can also hear this name when people cheer for the Korean national team at sport matches such as the World Cup or the Olympics.
