Fiestar Teaches You the Meaning Behind “Tteokbap”
The three lovely ladies of Fiestar – Jei, Cheska, and Cao Lu – are back to teach you more Korean slang with their weekly series, “A-ha!”
In the video, Jei, Cheska, and Cao Lu explains the word in three different languages: Korean, English, Chinese. According to them, “tteokbap” initially means paste bait (for fishing), but it’s often used as a metaphor to describe a hot topic, or things that people are interested in.
Be sure to come back next week for the fourth lesson in the series!
