Lost in translation! Not the kind with punches and hair pulling, the Korean use of the term 'Fighting' or 'whiting' is a Konglish term with similar encouraging sentiment as 'you can do it!'. There are many Konglish mash-up words that are now essential to the modern Korean vocabulary. In essence, it truly is about 'fighting', keeping up the inner fight to go on.
