I'm Cambodian and we use a term that's VERY similar to this, be it in a family or in a relationship.
Awesome! I'm Khmer too! Yeah, we do use similar terms. Like if it's a guy that is older than us, we will call him "Bong" translating to "Oppa" in Korean. And we also call our husbands "Bong" like how Hee-joo still calls Ki-joon "Oppa."
thanks to all for filling in the blanks for me, I missed the first few episodes. Also ginnycat5 I remember seeing the same episode and thinking the same when SM said that to In-Young's mom. How can a person be like that. And about Ki-joon he always gets to me when he cries desperately for in-young like the part when he asked In-young why did she lie to him and if she wanted him to live like that suffering and that if she like to see him dying something around those lines. It was the day they conceived the baby. I was like please take him back or I will. ;D
