Korean Internet Slang

Hello guys and welcome back to another post. Today I'm going to talk about some common Korean internet or texting slang. So, let's get started.


ㅋㅋㅋ is similar to 'lol'. It can be used whenever you want to show the other person across the screen that you're laughing. Imagine you and your friend are texting each other and your friend texted you a funny story then you could text them ㅋㅋㅋㅋ. I know that you already understood the meaning of ㅋㅋㅋ just by reading the first line but I'm just obsessed with providing imaginative examples, I guess 😅


This simply means 'okay'. Don't worry, no examples in this one.


If your friend texted ㅠㅠ means he/she is sad. ㅠㅠ represents a crying face. Like two lines of tears streaming down your eyes. ㅜㅜ can be used as well.


ㄱㅅ means 'Thank You'. Nothing to explain, you might have already guessed, it is just a shortened form of '감사합니다'.


Used for saying bye bye or goodbye.


Just like ㅋㅋㅋ, ㅎㅎ shows that you're laughing (haha). ㅋㅋㅋ is preferred more than ㅎㅎ by South Koreans.

ㅇㅇ means yes. 응 is used to say ‘yes’ in texting. So, ㅇㅇ is an abbreviated form.


Means No No.


short form of 몰라. Short form for saying I don't know.


Use for saying 'hi' (하이 to ㅎㅇ).

There are much more internet slangs which I've not covered. Maybe I'll write another post regarding that later. So, yeah, this is it for this post. I hope you enjoyed reading.
