Korean Gaming Words – Words to Know at the PC Bang

So hopefully this helps those of you who may have downloaded a Korean game to your smartphone or play games like League of Legends and want to play on Korean servers. I had no idea what some of the vocabulary was and it was confusing. I’ve had this happen many times and although I could understand basic Konglish, there were some tougher terms that I couldn’t understand. This graphic doesn’t cover everything, but it covers some common ones you may come across.

Hopefully, these gaming words help you out a bit. There’s lots of slang used in chat rooms during gaming sessions, so maybe we’ll do a post on that in the future as well.
