What is the meaning of these korean words?

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

oppa

noona

hyung

dongsaeng

  • 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.
