In a video with Vanity Fair, DAY6 decided to teach everyone K-Pop slang words they should know, from the simpler terms to a bit more complicated ones.
Dowoon described it best by saying “heart attack.” Jae elaborated by explaining that it’s more like being attacked by something cute.
Sungjin instantly said, “Super,” while Jae said, “The best.” The latter even gave an example: “You are jjang.”
3. Killing Part
Jae reassured everyone this phrase wasn’t as bad as it sounded. It’s simply the part of the song that everyone remembers most.
Young K translated it literally, meaning popular song. Jae explained it more like “a category of Korean songs.”
They all agreed it’s a moment where everyone is singing along. Jae described it as the audience singing along to their music.
6. Ah Ah
Young K explained it as a shortened way to say Iced Americano, by taking the first syllables of both words and putting them together.
This is another shortened version, this time from the word insider. It’s “a sociable, well-liked person.”
It’s a shortened way to say that someone is having a meal by themselves.
This word is more like a sound effect used to express a variety of emotions, from excited to sad.
Young K explained it as a shortened phrase, meaning “We lost, but good fight.”
