Korean Slang: 얼짱

얼짱

If someday, someone uses the slang 얼짱 on you, be sure to give them a sweet smile and thank them, for this term is often used to describe a ‘beautiful face’ which applies to both men and women.

얼 is derived from the word 얼굴 which means face and 짱 is an exclamation that means “the best”. 얼짱 literally means you’ve got the best face. So, do take it as a huge compliment!

여러분 혹시 ‘얼짱’이라는 말을 들어본 적 있나요? 얼짱은 ‘얼’굴이 ‘짱’ 예쁘거나 잘생겼다는 의미예요. 남자나 여자 누구에게든 사용할 수 있고 보통 학교에서 얼굴이 제일 예쁘고 잘생긴 친구들에게 많이 사용해요. 기분 좋은 칭찬이니까 언제 어디서든 많이 사용해도 괜찮아요! 여러분 주변에 혹시 얼짱이 있나요?
