Difference between Women and Men

This picture has been posted on an online game community forum.
This shows that how men and women are so different.

So for a woman, there are various kinds of men.

친구, 애인, 그냥 아는 오빠,  소개팅한 남자, 전에 사귀던 남자, 요즘 연락하는 사람, 좋아하는 남자 연예인

친구(Chingu) is a friend.

애인(Ae-in) is a lover(boyfriend or girlfriend).

그냥 아는 오빠(Keu-nyang Aneun oppa) means a boy(older than me) I just know.

소개팅한 남자(Sogaetinghan namja) is a man who I went on a blind-date with. 

전에 사귀던 남자(Jeone saguideon namja) is a man who I dated before or ex-boyfriend.

요즘 연락하는 사람(Yojeum yeollackhaneun saram) is a man who I have been in touch with.

좋아하는 남자 연예인(Choahaneun namja yeonyein) is a celebrity that I like.

Here, the three words that I would like to teach you are 소개팅, 사귀다, and 오빠.

소개팅(Sogaeting) is consisted of 소개(Sogae - Introduction) + 팅(Ting). Ting is from Meeting. In Korea, if someone is going on a meeting, that means that will have a group blind-date. It can be a meeting at work like what we normally use, but it can be a group blind-date, so be careful! lol.
So, 소개팅 is a word from Korean word and English word. It is a bit weird... anyway.. It means a blind-date. If someone sets you guys up to meet, that is 소개팅.

사귀다(Saguida) means date steadily. 너 나랑 사귈래? means 'Do you want to become my boyfriend(girlfriend)?'

오빠 means an older brother. We use 오빠 to anyone who is older than you and you feel quite close to. A lot of people know Oppa, Gangnam style. We use Oppa to anyone who is older. If you use that to any man, they will like you a lot. 

For a man, there are only two types of women. Either 친구(just Friend) or 애인(Lover, girlfriend). lol.

Do you think that it is right in your country, too??

Korean people agree with this a lot on this forum. :)
