Catch Phrase | 母胎solo(mǔtāi solo)

Meaning:

母胎” means “since in the womb of one’s mother,” and “solo” is an English word that means “on one’s own, alone or unaccompanied.” This term, translated from the Korean language, refers to those who have been single their entire life so far. First used by show biz insiders in South Korea, this phrase caught on among Korean fans and then spread to China via the Internet. Chinese netizens often use it to mock themselves.

Example:

A: 听说公司新招的秘书是你介绍来的,她有男朋友吗?

Tīngshuō gōngsī xīn zhāo de mìshū shì nǐ jièshào lái detā yǒu nánpéngyou ma

They say the new secretary we recruited was recommended by you. Does she have a boyfriend?

B: 不清楚,我帮你打听打听。

Bù qīngchǔwǒ bāng nǐ dǎtīng dǎtīng
