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It was originally made for mirroring words like ‘김치녀(Kimchi women; Korean women)’, ‘된장녀(Doenjang women; Korean women who spend a lot of money)’, ‘피싸개(Blood pee-er; Women who are in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

Hannam is abbreviation of Korean(Han-) man(nam). It is similar to Hannyu, meaning Korean woman. But as you can see in the writing above, Only Korean men are very sensitive and angry to this word, because unfortunately high proportion of Korean men are ‘Hannam’.
This word usually refer to Korean men who are misogygist/sexist/a patriarchal thinker. When a Korean man commited a sexual crime, it called 한남짓(Hannam-git, Korean men doing).
Hannams have always made and used degrading words against women like 김치녀(kimchi-women), 피싸개(blood pee-er), 보징어(cunt smell like squids)… And they say 보이루(hello cunt).
So if you want to understand this word properly, knowing about misogyny in Korea will he helpful.

It is actually abbreviations of Korean men in Korean words, but it is also referring the korean men who acts like typical asian(or korean men).
Before understanding this word, we should aware of misogyny in korea, including high crime rate against women, socio-economic inequalities, and convention that originated from past asian culture.
The men who are called as hannam are essences of these old ideas. They want to keep inequalities by gender but also to avoid their responsibilities,such as military and working for home, which is required to keep inequalities. In addition to these, Hannams also enjoy and defending prostitution, sexual harassment, and sexual insulting.
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Their behavior is quite similarly to incel. Hannam=incel+sexiest. They are deprived social status because of their own ability, thus having complex about their failure. However, since it is quite hard to fight against society with their situation, thus they choose easier way to gain their self-esteem and social-status: attacking women. Their complex is even more severe when they encounter sufficient and successful women, who are inferior objects for sex only in their mind. They are quite active in internet. They use a lots of discriminating expression regarding women. However, they tend to be crazy and frightened when they encounter the only mirroring word against men, “hannam”. Be careful hannam.</p>

Dr. Jisun Yun(윤지선) — professor and feminist — wrote a thesis about 한남충 in 2020. https://www.dbpia.co.kr/Journal/articleDetail?nodeId=NODE09309729#none
Bogyeom(보겸) — Youtube influencer — claimed that some parts of this paper disrespected him by the content different from the fact so he sued her.
In my opinion, this thesis is useless on the academical view. It has some wrong information and too much depends on snobbish French philosophy. She tried to do analogical reasoning between human being and insects. Which looks like totally nonsense. I think that her paper is just a mix of bias, desire based on feminism, snobbism, and the lack of rational understanding.
윤지선 박사 — 교수, 페미니즘 활동가 — 는 2020년, 한남충에 대한 논문을 발표했다. 유튜버 보겸은 이 논문이 사실과 다른 내용으로 자신의 명예를 실추시켰다는 이유로 고소중이다.
나의 의견으로, 이 논문은 학문적 관점에서 무용하다. 사실관계가 다른 내용이 있고, 쓸데없이 현학적인 프랑스 철학에 의존하고 있으며, 인간과 곤충을 무리하게 유비추론하는 실수를 저지르고 있다. 이 논문은 그저 편견과, 페미니즘적인 정복욕, 스노비즘, 그리고 합리적 사고의 부재의 산물에 불과해 보인다.
