[Korean Slang] #21 쌩얼(Bare face)

Welcome to Wikinae’s Korean Slang #21


How often do you wear makeup?

For a healthy skin, it’s important to remove all makeup at the end of the day and give your skin some time to breathe✨


In today’s post, let’s find out how Koreans say “bare face”.

✔️쌩얼 is a shortened word combination of ‘ (Raw / Bare)’ and ‘굴 (Face)’, which means ‘bare face’ or ‘a face without makeup’.


Derived from 생얼굴 → 쌩얼굴 → 쌩얼, the word ‘생’ became ‘쌩’ because of its strong pronunciation.

Me too. That’s even better for your skin.
