닭날개 (dangnalgae) chicken wings
Do you know about 닭날개? 닭날개 means "chicken wings."
In Korea, it's believed that offering chicken wings to your husband or boyfriend will make him cheat on you.
It's because the wings could make him fly away. In Korean, the word 바람 means "wind" but also "cheating on a loved one." This is why people connect chicken wings with someone cheating, because wings and wind infers one flying away.
