I’ve been watching coffee prince, and I’m curious about some words. I’m pretty sure they’re titles. Initially I thought ahjussi was a name, but it gets used on multiple peolpe, so I think it’s a title?
CAn someone explain these terms please?
unni = What girls say to older sisters or girls older than themselves.
oppa = What girls say to older brothers or boys older than themselves.
noona = What boys say to older sisters or girls older than themselves
hyung = What boys say to older brothers or boys older than themselves
dongsaeng = younger siblings
ahjussi is not a name. It is most commonly used for adult men that are around their mid 20’s to 40’s and even the 50’s.
Basically, it’s sort of a way to say “Sir, man” in Korean. Hope that helps.
Gwiyeopda (귀엽다) is an adjective, it means to be cute, or charming. Aigo (아이고) can be an expression, like ‘Gee!’, ‘Oh’, etc. If I’m right. 귀엽다 Romanised: Gwiyeopda Pronunciation: Gwee-yeop-da 아이고 Romanised: Aigo/Aiko Pronunciation: Aeego
oppa 오빠 -What girls say to older brothers or boys older than themselves.
noona 누나- meansWhat boys say to older sisters or girls older than themselves
hyung 형- What boys say to older brothers or boys older than themselves
dongsaeng 동생 -younger siblings
