[Korean Slang] #35 정주행(Binge-watching or Binge-reading)

Welcome to Wikinae’s Korean Slang #35


Have you ever stayed up all night binge-watching?

On rainy days, it is nice to spend time at home binge-watching 📺


In today’s post, let’s find out how Koreans say “binge-watching”!

✔정주행 is used to refer to binge-watching or binge-reading something, such as a drama series, movie series, book series, etc.


This word means ‘driving in the right direction’ in terms of transportation. However, as a neologism, it refers to watching something from the beginning to the end.
