Exact meaning ‘LATTE IS HORSE?’

LATTE IS HORSE?

Perhaps some have heard this. Recently, this sentence appeared in a program called ‘Run BTS!’.

Latte is one of the types of coffee. So, when foreigners hear this, they cannot understand it.

This sentence is language play. It is written in Korean as it sounds.

And the words that the sound means are arranged. Anyway, the meaning of the sentence is as follows.

Exact meaning LATTE IS HORSE

WHEN I WAS YOUNG.

It is used when referring to childhood or the past. In Korea, mostly older people say this.

That’s why in Korea, people who say that are called ‘GGON-DAE’.

Maybe there is a similar meaning in foreign countries? I am not sure.

This sentence is used mainly when older people talk to young people while talking about the past.

LATTE IS HORSE? TMI!

I’ll explain in more detail. If you read that sentence aloud, it looks like this:

na-ttae-neun-mal-i-ya

The ‘na-ttae’ part is similar to the LATTE pronunciation. And this part of ‘neun’ is the same as ‘IS’ in English.

Finally, ‘mal-i-ya’ means HORES. ‘MAL’ in Korean is HORES in English.

Because of this meaning, the sentence was born as a play of language.

I think it is a combination of Korean and English.
