Can you speak the world’s official language?
Netflix ‘squid game’ is a big hit, and the word ‘Kanbu’ in the drama is a sign of becoming a global buzzword.
“Kanbu” is a word used by Oh Il-nam’s grandfather when he plays a beading game in the play, suggesting to join the main character Ki-hoon (played by Lee Jung-jae). It is interpreted as a word meaning a team or comrade.
As the words that my grandfather used when he was a child come out, it is a somewhat unfamiliar expression for the MZ generation these days.
However, this word, which Koreans do not know well, appears on Twitter official account and attracts attention.
As Facebook and Instagram Watts apps caused a connection disorder on the 5th, Netflix used a scene from “Squid Game” to deliver a message saying, “There is Twitter (even if Facebook and others are down).
Ali was marked as ‘Twitter’ by uploading a scene where Ali caught the scene of falling down in ‘Mugunghwa flower bloomed’.
Twitter, which received this, posted a scene of “squid game,” and Netflix again draws attention with the article “gganbu (Kanbu).
Netizens are enthusiastic about ‘friendly communication’ that shows ‘squid game’ scene between Netflix and Twitter.
‘Managers have seen all the ‘squid games’, ” Canbu ” Is it now the world? ‘
On the other hand, ‘Kanbu’ means the same side when playing games such as scabs and beads. When it becomes ‘Kanbu’, it can grow strength by co-management of scabs and beads.
There is also an interpretation that it is not registered in the standard language dictionary of the National Institute of Korean Language.
The ‘Kanbu’ of the chicken franchise ‘Kanbu Chicken’ also means the same, and the franchise explained on the homepage ‘Kanbu’ that ‘it means my team, my companion, and my comrade who walked with my little finger when I was a child’.
