This is kind of a piggy back off the emoticon infographic as a few people have been asking for another graphic about Korean Slang. Sort of a “Part 2”.

    What about 남이사 (hope I got that right) for ‘none of your business’? I’ve been hearing it lately in some dramas I’ve watched.

    • Dominic ‘Dom’ Dinkins

      i’m actually not familiar with that one. I’ll have to ask Hyo about it 🙂

      남이사 means ‘other people’s business.’,
      This can me example
      A : That guys were dancing on the street randomly – 그 사람이 길 한복판에서 엉뚱하게 춤을 추고 있었어
      B : 남이사.. [That’s his business.] – 남이사…

    멘붕 (멘탈붕괴) might be easier to grasp translated directly into the components: mental collapse/implosion.
