[Korean Slang] #20 맞팔

Welcome to Wikinae’s Korean Slang #20


How active are you on social media?

Being able to easily connect with others is one of the benefits of social media 🔗

In today’s post, let’s find out how Koreans say “to follow each other”!

✔ 맞팔 is short for ‘맞 (Each other) 팔로우 (Follow)’ which means ‘to follow each other(’s social media accounts)’ or ‘to follow back’.


This term is usually used between close people, as it refers to a two-way following, not a one-way following.

B: 그래, 내 계정은 이거야.

Sure, this is my account.
