Salt - yeam - 염

Recently I have been following KBS World Variety shows such as Human Condition and Hello Counselor.

There are many news words being discovered. I should make notes while watching instead of thinking about it later. So now here is one while watching Human Condition Chuseok Special. They needed an ingredient for their cooking project. It is the basic salt.

Salt is 염 (yeam). It is same in Teochew language. Yeam.

In korean language, yeam I guess is more informal. Since in writings or packaging, it will be: 소금 (so geum).
