아나요 내 심장은 그대라는 걸

    Hi all..!! I'm new here, so 반갑습니다 to all of you..!! :)

    This piece of lyrics from a song called 반지 by Girls' Generation Tiffany got me confused.
    It is translated as " Do you know that you are my heart?"

    Why does "아나요" here translated to 'Do you know'? Isn't 'Do you know' '알아요' in Korean?
    I hope I could get an answer for my confusion.

    Thank you so much.. And happy learning Korean..!!

    아나요? means "do you realize?" Sounds poetic.

    Example: 아시나요 얼마나 사랑하는지... (from 아시나요 by 조성모)

    알아요? means "do you know?"

    Example: 혹시 여기서 시청까지 가려면 몇 번 버스 타야되는지 아세요?
