Korean dating show
However, it’s not for everyone–we’ll explain below!If you are impressed by somebody’s aegyo, then you can say ‘귀여워요’ (gyiyowoyo) which means ‘cute’ in Korean (dictionary form: 귀엽다).We would also be dating a chaebol heir/heiress with a secret past and whose evil mother hates us. The word Aegyo is often used with the word ‘부리다 ‘ (bulida) to make ‘애교 부리다’ (aegyo bulida). Take a look at the seven levels below, and decide which levels you think are appropriate to use on a date, and which levels should be left to Korean dramas and gag shows.If a word ends in a vowel, then this vowel can be stretched to sound cuter (or whiny depending on your perspective, this guy in particular hates it). For those not familiar with ‘오빠’, it literally means ‘older brother’.
This is fun to watch for about 30 seconds, even less if you imagine four more couples repeating it.
As you might have guessed, this post will use a lot of Hangul, the Korean alphabet.
If you can’t read the Hangul it is possible to learn in just ninety minutes, so what are you waiting for?
Having that kind of aegyo experience might even cause you to get 닭살 (daksal or ‘goosebumps’)! Of course, most people don’t use aegyo in an extreme way. The more ridiculous examples of aegyo can often be found in Korean dramas or on comedy shows.
Those examples are very different from how people might use it in real life, since Korean dramas themselves aren’t a particularly accurate portrayal of Korea.
But couples are actually in the same location, so it’s just placing a virtual overlay over ordinary physical interactions.
