Korean Slang: 강추

5-강추

강추 is a slang often used when you’d highly recommend something or a place to someone. 강 is derived from the term 강력 which means strong, and 추 from 추천 which stands for recommendations.

For instance, if someone uses the term ‘강추해요’ on a certain restaurant, it’s a place they’d strongly recommend. To have a local provide recommendations is one of the best ways to explore hidden gems around Seoul, so if it’s 강추, you ought to try it.

강추는 ‘강력 추천’의 줄임말로 내가 만족한 어떤 것을 다른 사람에게 권한다는 표현입니다. 음식이나 식당을 추천할 수도 있고 드라마나 책을 추천할 수도 있어요. 다른 친구에게 좋은 것을 추천할 때 ‘강추’라는 표현을 한 번 사용해 보는 건 어떨까요?
