KOREAN WORD OF THE DAY!

껄떡거리다 (kkul dduk guh rida)

This word in its usual usage means "to gulp down" something like water or even breath. Basically, you continuously desire for a taste (of something). But when used in it's slang form, it means something similar in that you are hitting on or coming onto someone, which you are doing because you are greedy for/desire their affections. Usually, it doesn't work especially if you come on too strongly. However, I do believe we have a English equivalent for this term in "thirst / thirsty." Sometimes falling in love/lust does have you acting like you're thirsty for that tall (good looking) glass of water that is the object of your affections.

KOREAN WORD OF THE DAY!

알콩달콩 (al kong dal kong)

This word encompasses all the words "happily, sweetly, and lovely." Think of couples radiating pink light with hearts floating around them. This word is usually used when talking about a couple (married mostly but can be used between people who are dating too). For example if a newly married couple are living happily together you can use this word to describe it. It kinda sounds silly but it's really sweet expression/word to use. However, it looks like Infinite's Myungsoo is not happy with 알콩달콩 expressions between his members...

KOREAN WORD OF THE DAY!

서비스 (Service)

This is a really useful word to know as you will hear it often when it comes to restaurants or stores. Basically, this word refers to something that is "complimentary" aka free! It's almost like a "gift with purchase." So the extra samples you get at Tony Moly, those are an example of "service." The extra plate of dumplings you might get at a Korean restaurant, especially if you order a large meal or if they are a newly opened place, that is another example of a service. You can even get "service" at department stores and pretty much any where in Korea. It's great and I wish we had more "service" in the U.S. instead of just when there is a promotional item... Though, if my favorite idol asked, I would give myself as a "service" to anything they needed! lol

KOREAN WORD OF THE DAY!

Manner hand / Manner legs

You may have heard these words being used quite often in Korean variety shows or even dramas. Still, it's a pretty interesting word since some Westerners may find it awkward looking. However, traditionally people in Asia are less touchy-feely than Westerners with friends and colleagues, so that's why celebs might be pulling manner hand/manner legs or just want to be respectful and polite.

"Manner hands" refers to the proper and courteous placement of a person's hands out of respect for someone else. In most cases in Korea, this refers to a male celebrity not touching the shoulder, arm, or sides of the female with whom they are posing. While this "hover hand," as it is often called in Western countries, usually has a more negative connotation, in Korea showing "manner hands" is received with great praise from both the media and the netizen community.

"Manner legs" is the term used to describe when a person uses a wide stance to accommodate for his or her tall height. Tall male celebrities in particular have to adopt these poses on a regular basis for filming dramas, movies, and interviews. Check out the links below to see examples (though some do look pretty funny) of manner hand / manner legs.
