Korean culture is becoming a phenomenon worldwide. You may not be all for following the masses, but these Korean slangs will definitely make you sound more fly. And if you already have surrendered to the pop-cultural lords, you may recognise some of these words.

Before you jump in, make sure you get these ingrained in your head as the phonetics of Korean is a bit different from that of English.

1. They pronounce their Ls with a sound that is similar to R.

2. Their Fs are pronounced as Ps.

3. In Korean, ‘th’ sounds more like ‘si’.

You’ll definitely make heads turn and native speakers cringe from the accent.
