Korean Slang: More Than Otaku?
Otaku (おたく/오타쿠) is a Japanese term for people with obsessive interests, commonly the anime/manga fandom. Depending on where you are, it can be a negative term, but I'm going to teach you a playful Korean term based off of this word!

This version of the word is usually used jokingly and means no harm :)

In Korean the sound "OH" (오) as in "OHtaku" means "5"

(Think of it as 5-taku)

The Korean sound "SHIP" means "10"

In order to call someone a SUPER OTAKU, an OTAKU x2, or someone who is all-knowing and really REALLY into something...
You call them...

십타쿠 (SHIP-TA-KU)

or...10-taku :D

Get it?!

It's a Korean play on words :)

What would you be considered a 10-Taku for?

Kdramas...as much as I love SHINee... I don't let myself stay up all night watching their videos. Except for their run on Hello Baby! I was kinda obsessed with that show in general though.
