‘한남’, which is a short term for the word ‘한국남자’ means Korean men.
It was originally made for mirroring words like ‘김치녀(Kimchi women; Korean women)’, ‘된장녀(Doenjang women; Korean women who spend a lot of money)’, ‘피싸개(Blood pee-er; Women who are in their period)’, and so on.
It usually used to criticize what many Korean men do, like prostitution, sexual harassment, evaluating women with their appearances, dutch paying on dating.
(e.g. 한남이 또: Korean men again: this sentence used when someone heard about the news of Korean men committing sexual crimes)
Even though the word is being used on the Internet very often, users should pay attention when they use the word because it is internet slang, and most Korean men take it as an insult.
‘한남충’ is a combination of ‘한남’ and ‘충’. ‘충’, of which the literal meaning is ‘bug’, usually attached at the end of nouns to degrade the subject.
