갈구다

Originally meaning a craving, hunger or earnest desire, galguhada (갈구하다), it became a slang expression for mocking someone or poking fun at them. It is most often used among friends to get a reaction from (rise out of) them or even to make them angry.

to tease, nag, irritate or annoy

갈구하다는 것은 본래, 무엇인가를 간절히 바라는 것을 의미한다. 하지만 어찌된건지 현재 는 친구들 사이에서, 특정 인물을 심하게 놀리거나 시비거는 행위를 뜻하게 되었다.

The Flashcard

Make good use of this to get your slang down and keep it in hand to share with your class, your club, your circle, your set!
