한남충(a portmanteau of “한국 남자충”,) means ‘Korean Men Vermin.
This is a racism word abominating Korean men that they are inferior than others.
This word has critical sexual & ethnical discrimination and hate speech issue. Be careful to use this word.
Some feminists claim that using this word is to discourage Korean men from being sexist and homophobic so it is the very right way for Korean feminism activists to use this word.
Some feminists claim that this word is to counterattack against numerous sexist words towards women (Kimchi Bitch/ Duaen Jang Bitch/ Mom worm etc.)
Highly recommended not using it in real life.
It is easily misunderstood that 한남 referring “Korean men” but in truth, it is only used in certain context that abominating entire Korean men
e.g. 한남충이랑 결혼할 바에 혼자 사는게 낫다 (I would rather be single than marrying a 한남충)
Definition in Korean (뜻)
한남충은 한국 남자 벌레의 약어로서, 극도로 역겨운 한국 남자라는 의미를 담고 있다.
이 단어는 심각한 성차별 및 증오 사상적 문제가 제기되고 있는 단어이다. 사용에 유의해야 한다.
일부 페미니즘 활동가들은 이 단어는 가부장적이며 여성혐오를 가진 남성을 비판하기 위한 단어이며, 된장녀, 김치녀, 맘충 등 여성 혐오에 대한 ‘미러링’ 이므로, 사용해도 무방하다고 주장 한다.

‘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It was originally made for mirroring words like ‘김치녀(Kimchi women; Korean women)’, ‘된장녀(Doenjang women; Korean women who spend a lot of money)’, ‘피싸개(Blood pee-er; Women who are in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.
