[Korean Slang] #2 물복(Soft peach)

Welcome to Wikinae’s Korean Slang #2


Among the many fruits that will blow away the hot summer, which fruit comes to your mind first?


One of the iconic summer fruits is the peach 🍑

In today’s post, let’s learn two expressions about how Koreans call “peaches”!

Peaches in Korea are often categorized into two types — ‘물복’ (Soft peach) and ‘딱복’ (Hard peach).


✔️물복 is short for ‘렁한 (Soft) 숭아 (Peach)’ which means ‘soft peach’.


✔️딱복 is short for ‘딱한 (Hard) 숭아 (Peach)’ which means ‘hard peach’.


Soft peaches (물복) are generally more popular due to their juicy texture, while hard peaches (딱복) have a lower sugar and moisture content so they are more preferred by those who enjoy a firmer, chewier taste.
