What Does PEOGAYO Mean?

Peogayo means "Re-post."

The Korean slang word peogayo was used widely on South Korean social media until around 2010. It roughly translates as re-post/re-posts.

Peogayo sprang to worldwide public attention in October 2022, when BTS band member Jin posted a picture with fellow band members Jungkook and J-hope. The translation of Jin's caption read: "Thank you. If you guys appear there will be a greater increase in reposts (sic), right?"
BTS band members. Jungkook, Jin and J-hope
The use of this now outdated term delighted the BTS Army and led to some good natured leg pulling on social media from Jin's colleagues.
