Raise your hand if you’re a gamer! If you’ve played with Koreans on their servers or just in general on other games, you may be confused or wondering what some of their game talk may mean.
Korean is a lot like English in this sense. We have a lot of words for good game, bye bye, see ya, etc.
So let’s start off with good game.
In English, ‘good game’ is abbreviated with ‘gg’. When you sound it out, it sounds like gee gee. Well in Korean, the sound is basically the same.
When you see ㅈㅈ for good game, it’s a shortened form of ‘지지’ which is basically the Korean sound for the letter g two times in a row. It was probably made popular once online gaming got popular in Korea, and they just adapted already known terms in English, and made them into shortened Korean forms.
