In this video, Hyunwoo and Jaemin discuss the expressions [ㅇㅇ]앓이 and 기승전[ㅇㅇ]. 앓이 is literally translated to “being sick” or “being sore” and it is usually used to describe your feelings for someone that you really like, usually a celebrity. 기승전[ㅇㅇ] originates from the original expression 기승전결, which menas “introduction, development, turn, and conclusion,” used to talk about the development of a story. So if someone keeps talking about something no matter what the topic of the conversation was, you can say 기승전 and add whatever the topic is after it.

In this video, Hyunwoo and Jaemin discuss the expressions 아재파탈 and 성지순례. 아재 is a friendly term that refers to 아저씨 (married middle-aged man), and 파탈 comes from the French expression "fatale." So 아재파탈 refers to a man in his middle age who is very (even fatally) attractive. 성지순례 originally means "pilgrimage" but on the Internet, people use 성지순례 to describe the visit to a blog post or a social media post that correctly predicted the future.
