Happy 50th KWOW! This week Granny Kim teaches you a lesson on swag:
There seems to be a misconception of ganji. Search online for "ganji style" or "ganji fashion" and you'll see photos of females wearing baggy pants paired with an oversized t-shirt.
Ganji is NOT a specific style! Just because you dress up like the females above does not make you ganji. This Korean slang term is much broader than that: GANJI means "swag" and "stylish." Anyone and anything can have ganji. For example…
저 남자 간지난다.
That man's got swag!
Juh namja ganjinandah!
The dress is stylish.
2NE'1's got swag.
Who do you think has GANJI?
