Study Korean:: About The Words only Native Korean know
Hi Hi You make me high~♥
For today, I brought stuff to study Korean.
You probably have been heard this word if you have been to Korea more than 1 year. However, it is unusual for complete foreigners.
This word is like slang and abbreviation which means for the young generation.
It means Fried Chicken and Beer!
치맥 (CHI-MAEK) (K sounds weakly)
Fried Chicken is called as 치킨(Chicken) in Korean and Beer as Maekju.
So, you can just call Chicken and beer as Chimaek.
Actually, these two food have a good marital compatibility.
(Not medically though.:-p)
★ Usage ★
A : 치맥하러 갈까?
(Shall we go for Chimaek?)
B : 치맥 좋지~ 하지만 난 맥주보다 소맥이 당겨
(I'd love it but would love to have Somaek* more than beer)
*소맥(Somaek): Soju and Beer
Haha, Remember then when you come to Korea one day and meet Korean friends,
you should try!
