“Internet centrist” on Sparkling Korea

Koreans lack a sense of irony

Filed under: Korea — fuga @ 12:59 pm

I mean Koreans literally do not have a concept of irony/sarcasm. Thus, there are no words for them in Korean.

Be aware when you talk with Koreans or else you might find yourself in deep shit.;-)

That’s all for today.


Some dictionary translates irony into Korean words such as “비꼬기”, “풍자한다” or “비아냥거리는”, but its meaning sounds different… Those are more like “teasing” or “harmless form of bullying” or “Jeer”..
