Is ㄱ k or g or is it both?

I've looked at a few websites and it has really confused me


  • Dannimar - 
    Apologies for the delay in response! According to our Korean tutor, April: 

    -> 'g' (the Korean name for the letter is "giyeok")

    -> 'k' (the Korean name for the letter is "kieuk")

    Hope this helps!

  • 안녕하세요. I learned korean before.

    가가가 ≒ ka ga gaㄱ is include k and g.  
    We pronounce k in first letter, g in others. 
    And k is very weak. Don't use many breath.
    (strong K is other letter)

    But it's not Korean rule, only foreigner's feeling.
    They unconscious. They speak just a letter , not k and g.
