Daebak is probably the hottest word that young Koreans use on a regular basis. It is a Korean term that has a literal meaning of “big win” that comes from winning jackpots at casinos. In daily usage, however, it is mostly used as an expression of surprise to praise something that is positive or great, such as in “awesome” or “oh my god.” Due to the nature of the word as a slang among young Koreans, it is rare to hear in formal settings. Here are some examples of the word usage.

Daebak相信是現時韓國最流行的日常用語。字面上,daebak指的是「大勝利」的意思,字詞源自從賭場贏回來的累積獎金。而在日常生活中,人們通常用作表達驚喜或讚美,就好像「棒」的意思。由於這是韓國年輕人的俚語,因此很少用在正式的場合中使用。以下就教大家如何使用這個韓國潮語!

Surprise 驚喜

A: Did you hear that Lee Minho and Suzy are dating?
(A:你知這李敏鎬和秀智拍拖嗎?)
B: Really? Daebak. Since when?
(B:真的?Daebak。他們是甚麼時候開始的?)

Awesome 棒

A: Have you seen EXO’s new music video?
(A:有看過EXO的新MV嗎?)
B: Yeah, it’s so daebak. I can’t stop watching it.
(B:有啊,很Daebak。我看過不停呢!)

The word daebak is also used as a compound noun to mean “very surprising” or “so awesome” when it is used alongside sageon(사건/occasion), as in daebak sageon(대박사건), to stress the exclamation points at the beginning of a conversation. For example:

Daebak這個字亦會用於複合名詞裡,當它與sageon(사건/場合)一起使用時,即是daebak sageon(대박사건),就是用於句子開頭,表達非常驚喜和很棒的意思。例如:

A: Daebak sageon. They’re making a sequel of My Love from the Star!
(A:Daebak sageon。它們真在為《來自星星的你)拍續集呢!)
B: Oh My Gosh! Daebak! Daebak!
(B:天呀!Daebak! Daebak!)
