아재개그 (ah jae gag)

This word literally translates to "a not funny joke." In Korea, 개그 (the English "gag" in Korean) is another one of those English words that isn't used exactly how it means in Korea. A gag man/gag woman is a comedian in Korea and a gag in general refers to a joke.

When it comes to 아재개그, I personally would include all puns in this category. However, I love that I saw a lot of puns when I was searching for a picture to go with this post. There was even a silly Korean comic series all about 아재개그!

Title: 더블유 / W - Two Worlds
Genre: Romance, Melodrama, Suspense
Episodes: 16 (To Be Confirmed)
Broadcast network: MBC
Broadcast period: 2016-Jul-20 to 2016-Sep-08
Air time: Wednesday & Thursday 22:00

I've been looking forward to this drama since "Uncontrollably Fond" has been disappointing me when it comes to the plot. So if you are looking for a series featuring melodrama/romance/thriller/suspense genres jumbled all in one, then 'W' may be just the right one for you too! It's great seeing Lee Jong Suk again and I love the twist to the webtoon inspiration for K-dramas. Finally something unique and fresh when it comes to K-dramas, plus the first episode was great at sucking me into the story and its characters. Go check out the teaser below and catch the 3rd and 4th episodes this week!

Plot: Oh Yun Joo (Han Hyo Joo) is a surgeon whose father is a famous comic book creator. One day, her father goes missing and she rushes to his workshop to look for him, and instead finds a strange man, Kang Chul (Lee Jong Suk) bathed in blood. She is kidnapped by him and taken to a different dimension.

러브콜 (Love Call)

This is another one of those English words that Korea borrowed that don't mean exactly what it may mean to native speakers. Basically a love call is a job proposition. It's mainly used in the the Korean entertainment industry between actors, singers, producers, directors, etc asking to work together. You can also use it informally to mean you got a job offer from a company but only if they reach out to you first. You can't really use it if you went in for an interview and then got a job offer. Imagine getting a love call from your favorite idol confessing their love for you and asking you to come work for them! It's a double whammy love call!

현웃 (hyun oot)

This word is pretty easy to use and we even have an English equivalent! This word basically means LOL! It's mainly reserved for internet usage as well! It's made up of the Korean words for "the present (현재 - hyun jae)" and "laugh (웃다 - oot dah)" so it directly translates to "presently laughing." You have to use it for those posts or memes that make you really burst out laughing not just when you giggle or chuckle, but LOL!
