Kpop's Overused Phrases: Mansae!

This is a phrase you've heard a billion times:

만세 (man-sae)!

So what does it mean?!
Mansae technically means "a thousand years" and was traditionally used as "대한민국만세" or "May Korea Be for Thousands of Years"
Now its used in two ways:


This is used from concerts to doctors offices. Whenever people say raise you hands above your head, they'll say "Mansae!"

2. Thousand Years

It's sort of saying "God Bless so-and-so." For example, if your teacher cancels a test you can say "(teacher's name) mansae!" or when BTS releases shirtless pictures you can say "BIG HIT MANSAE"
Listen to the chorus here to remember "Mansae!"
