Korean Phrase of the Week: AEGYO 애교

Updated: Oct 30, 2020

AEGYO 애교: Acting Cute or in a childlike manner.

This actually comes originally from Chinese. If you've watched any CDrama's you may have heard the ML say, "Wo Ai Ni." I love you.

Ae= love and Gyo= beautiful.

A lot of idol shows include your fave bias showing aegyo (egg yo) for their fans. While it is questioned by new k-fans as to it’s necessity, or how how it even works, seasoned fans can’t help but smile.

It’s often done in dramas as a way to get someone to do something for you, to varying levels of success. Though See the clip below.

EXO members will demonstrate a variety of aegyo in this clip.
