Glossary of Korean used:

  • [콜] kol — Koreanized pronunciation of the English word “call” (adopted from the poker term), used to signify that the person who said it is game—slang equivalent of “I’m in!” or “Sure!”, usually said to express enthusiastic agreement to a proposed course of action, basically anything involving any dare or bet that could result in a good story years later; can also be used for trivial pursuits, like when your friends ask you if you’re going to the movies with them, you can say “콜!” to mean that you’re in and that you’re definitely going
