This quickly coined phrase, which literally means in Korean slang “good body shape” or “knockout body,” and the fitness craze that it spawned became one of the year’s biggest trends that had young people and middle-aged people sweating it out in health clubs losing those unwanted pounds and getting into shape.» —“The `Shape’ of Things to Come” by Jeffrey Miller Korea Times (Seoul, S. Korea) Dec. 12, 2004. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
