In Korean, there’s a really useful and common phrase that’s used to describe those really clueless friends you have. And we want to make sure that you’re not THAT friend. Make sure you’re not totally clueless in Korea… or at least… learn how to say it in Korean
In Korean, the phrase 눈치 없다 (nunchi eopta) refers to someone that is clueless, someone that doesn’t know what’s going on, or simply doesn’t have any common sense. That’s when someone doesn’t have any 눈치 (nunchi).
And the opposite is when someone has 눈치 (nunchi). The phrase 눈치 있다 (눈치 있다) refers to someone who’s quick witted, can understand the situation quickly, or has common sense. Another way to say this is 눈치 빠르다 (nunchi ppareuda) – to have quick nunchi.
