What's the difference between using 남자아이 and 소년? Both seem to translate to "boy".
they have the same meaning. though i wouldnt use 소년 when youre speaking with another person. it's used more in literature.
The literal translation is man child. Pretty sure I laughed a solid minute at that for some reasob
I really like that it is Man(남자) + child(아이). It makes everything much easier^.^
