Chinese Slang for Feeling Down: 囧
Ironically, 囧 originally means “bright.” However, nowadays it means something more along the lines of emoji the character resembles.
Sad, depressed, helplessness, disappointed, or the general “blah” or “ugh” feeling we have whether it’s because we spilt some coffee on our shirt and it’s only 10AM or we’ve just locked our keys in the car.
Slang for Feeling Down: 囧
囧 is said to be one of the most popular symbols of the 21st century. It became part of the news and even the movie and advertising industry.
One way people write 囧 with symbols is (kind of like how we use “:)” as a smiley face in English): o(╯□╰)o
囧 (jiǒng): helplessness, disappointment, sad, depressed, hurt, “blah” or “ugh”
This word can mean a multiple of different things depending on the situation and what you want to say. On the internet, it usually expresses some kind of sadness or helplessness. However, it could also mean humor or describe one’s mood.
Let’s take a look at some examples:
1. Example A:
爸妈很大 (bà mā jiǒng hěn dà) = Dad and Mom’s disappointment is really big.
2. Example B:
人的幸福生活》(“jiǒng rén de xìng fú shēng huó” = drama series “depressed people’s happy lives”
3. Example C:
 《泰》票房近13亿 价值取向获赞 (“tài jiǒng” piào fáng jìn 13 yì jià zhí qǔ xiàng huò zàn) = “Lost in Thailand” box office sales nearly hit a praised 13 billion in value.
