Dirty Korean: Everyday Slang from "What's Up?" to "F*%# Off!" (Dirty Everyday Slang)by Haewon Geebi Baek
Synopses & Reviews
Nothing is censored in Dirty Korean. By revealing the contemporary colloquial language locals actually speak, this book presents cool things to say for all casual situations — shopping, parties, nightclubs, sporting events, and even romance and sex. Dirty Korean includes harsh expressions to convince a local police officer that one's documents are in order and he has been tipped enough, sweet words to entice a local beauty to join you for a plate of kimchi, and even native banter to help make friends over a glass of Soju. An invaluable guide for off-the-beaten-path travelers going to Korea, Dirty Korean is packed with enough insults and swear words to offend every person in Korea without even mentioning Kim Jong-Il or the breed of dog cooked into tonights dinner. Theres even sex terminology graphic enough to embarrass even the most jaded hostess at a massage parlor.
Next time you're traveling or just chattin' in Korean with your friends, drop the textbook formality and bust out with expressions they never teach you in school, including:
Explicit sex terms
Raw swear words
Dirty Korean teaches the casual expressions heard every day on the streets of Korea:
What's up? Wasseo?
Holy shit, I'm trashed. Ssibal, na manchiwi.
I gotta piss. Na swi ssayahae.
Who farted? Bangu nuga ggyeosseo?
Wanna try doggy-style? Dwichigi haeboja?
That bitch is crazy! Heo nyeon michin nyeoniya!
I could really go for some Korean BBQ. Na cheolpangui meokgospieo.
