Do you know any other Japanese superstitions?

Hi Colin,

If you two are very close and they say it in a joking way in a funny situation, then they may just be kidding around and telling you that you’re a bit of a ’smartypants’. But unless you are really close, it could be taken in a negative context so I wouldn’t really use this expression unless it is to someone with whom you can say whatever and know that they won’t take it seriously.

Cheers,

Interesting. The person who says this is someone I am very close with and I know that they mean no harm/ill will. Could it be used in an endearing/joking way?

Hi Colin,

Thank you for posting. If someone said ์žฌ์ˆ˜์—†์–ด to you then that would not be a positive reaction, nor would it be a polite one. Originally, ์žฌ์ˆ˜ means luck, so ์žฌ์ˆ˜์—†์–ด would literally mean, unlucky. However in recent days, it has become a ‘negative’ slang which means something like ‘that sucks’.

Please let us know if you have any other inquiries.
Best,

When you tell a corny joke/say something ridiculous, and someone reacts by saying ์žฌ์ˆ˜ ์—†์–ด what does it mean?
