Have you ever heard of the term “aegyo”? Are you familiar with “aegyo”? How familiar?
For those who are unaware, at first I will explain what aegyo is.
In practical terms: A Korean word that refers to the act of people (particularly Korean girls) employing a sickeningly cutesy behavior in an attempt to appear attractive (usually towards boys). When using aegyo, girls tend to speak in incredibly annoying baby-talk voices. In conclusion, “aegyo” is a Korean word that represents a cute, innocent, and yet vivacious charm.
If you have been into the KPOP craze for a while, this term should be something you are familiar with. “Aegyo” can either be endearing with moderation but in many cases it could be a controversial thing where it calls upon a punch like many people would describe it.
Aegyo is quite debatable, it can be quite charming but it really depends on the individual. With this said, usually “aegyo” is common with females and something undesirable for men to attempt. As society develops, it is getting more acceptable for men to participate in the arts of aegyo.
Aegyo tip: If you want to be excellent at contemporary aegyo, when speaking to a boy, *always* call him oppa. Yes, even if he’s younger than you; who cares about the word’s *actual* *correct* usage! Just go ahead and call him oppa anyway, you annoying you. And remember, if you say “oppa” after practically every other word, the effect is even more powerful!
