This is mostly used as a prefix, used accordingly with many different nouns, such as honey skin, abs, thighs, vocal cords, part time jobs, and fun to name a few. The prefix, like the literal meaning, can be used figuratively to mean something nice and smooth. Let’s explore some of the most-used terms with the word kkul.
