Simple Introduction To Korean Slang

Korean Slang Ultimate Guide to Sounding Cool in 2021

The Korean Slang dictionary is very expansive and covers a number of different categories. If you are going to learn Korean, no doubt you will want to know some Korean Slang as well. There is a wealth of words to learn, and even more phrases. The rules of Korean Slang, like the rules of any language, are not set in stone. Each country has their own slang and regional variation of the language. In fact, the Korean language changes from year to year, and it is up to you to keep up with the current trends.

When it comes to the Korean Slang, there are many ways to make the simplest word sound more complicated. The word “jung” means “side,” and the word “gae” means “to flow.” Combine those two words and you get the word “gaepa,” which means “to go fishing.” That’s not the most complex word, but it’s a good place to start.

Another interesting example is the word” Bokmex,” which means “big mirror.” A Bokmex can be found in many North Korean cities, and when you see one, think of a big open room in which to have a “fitting.” It’s a term for a bridal shower. Sounds like something a girl would say. You can also find Bokmex on many South Korean soap operas.

One of my favorite examples of this type of word is “Hanbal” for men. It stands for “handsome.” If you see this word on a man, he is probably a good-looking guy. ” Hanbal “is also a slang word for a doctor. In fact, there are so many variations of the word for doctor that I could spend a lifetime trying to explain them all.

In English, the word “cupboard” is simply a door. In Korean, however, the word is a home made term for an office where many things are kept, like books and utensils. So, it’s possible that the English word cupboard means the same as many other Korean words.

There are a few words in Korean that have absolutely no English translation. These are very simple words that really convey the meaning of the phrase. An example of this is the word “gae” which means water. But when pronounced with an English consonant, it means “head, large intestine.” This is just one of the many examples of simple Korean slangs.

Speaking of words with no English translation, let’s take a look at one I find quite fascinating. This word is very rarely seen in Korean literature, unless it is in a book written by an English native speaker. In fact, it is used so rarely that it is considered slang. Yet, when translated literally from Korean to English, it becomes a very popular word with American and Australian English speakers. It’s name is “gota,” and it means “a bag or basket made out of leaves.”

One more word that doesn’t have a direct English translation is “seoul.” A surprising number of Korean words have an entirely different meaning when speaking in Korean. For example, “seoul” can be translated as “a place where people go to worship the gods,” and “seoul girls” can mean “violet-flowered maidens.” So, this slang could have another meaning depending on who is saying it.

There are many more forms of Korean word that have nothing to do with the above. For example, “daebong” means “arm chair.” This is one that you will often see in workplaces where there are a few chairs instead of one table. In fact, in some offices, the boss will ask all of his employees to sit on the arm chair for relaxation. No one is forced to sit there, and no one is required to buy any armchair. It is used as a courtesy and used to perk employees up.

There are also a number of words that have nothing to do with religion. For example, “oseong” means “left,” and “gaeun” means “cancer.” These two are used quite often and are considered acceptable in modern culture, but they are not found in every single word in Korean. So you can be sure that if you say “oseong” or “gaeun” to a Korean speaker, you won’t come out speaking very well.

Another form of Korean slang is used in sports. A popular example of this is the term “go-ju” which is used when referring to a hit on the field or court. This term has come to mean “exchange ball.” However, the origin of the term is more than a little suspicious. Many say that it came from go-ju, which is a nickname for street food in Korean. Whatever the case may be, if you want to expand your vocabulary beyond the simple words, Korean slang is the way to go.
