Pronunciation

yaja

Definition (meaning)

  • self study time in the night.(actually, it's not real 'self-study')
  • In Korea, the college you graduate from is an enormously crucial defining aspect of your future life. As such, most Korean high school students join the class for 08:00~18:00 and plus they have 야자 for 19:00~23:00. This routine continues for 3 years. Students train solving the college exam over and over again like a solving machine and they have never interest about real study.

e.g.야자 시간에 도망간 놈 누구냐!
