Hi tjuhenryli,


Thank you for your question.


惡(ok3) means "vicious" or "malignant"

屋(uk1) means "house".


You can check out the Jyutping Chart link of Cantonesclass101.com to hear the different pronunciation between (ok) and (uk) . You can find the sound of (eon) and (oe) there too. This is a very nice chart for practicing Cantonese. :smile:
