What does kkk mean in Korean text talk?

So for those who have come across ‘kkk’ when talking to a Korean person online might wonder what it means – though it might be obvious to some, it may be less to others!

I for one thought that, because in English ‘kkk’ can mean ‘okay okay okay’ or ‘kay kay kay’, ‘kkk’ might mean the same thing and that this wasn’t a Korean thing they were typing. But it is indeed Korean!

‘Kkk’ is the Korean equivalent of ‘hahaha’ like ‘www’ is for the Japanese. The sound of kkk is one made with your tongue pressed against the roof of your mouth, it’s supposed to sound like a kind of stifled laughter. Obviously this doesn’t mean people actually laugh like this in real life, some do some don’t, it’s just text talk to show laughter. Like ‘haha’ or ‘lol’.

Just a lil’ post on how, obviously, kkk = heeheehee
