 Mother

어머니 or엄마

 Brother

 Sister

언니/누나/여동생(*2)

 Aunt

이모/고모(*3)

 Uncle

삼촌/고모부(*4)

 Cousin

사촌(*5)

If you are a girl(or woman) and have an older brother.           You call him '오빠'

If you are a girl(or woman) and have a younger brother.         You call him '(남)동생'


If you are a boy(or man) and have an older brother.               You call him '형'

If you are a boy(or man) and have a younger brother.             You call him '(남)동생'
