Is 치킨 just fried chicken?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/wintertriangles

No, they use them interchangeably.

They are not interchangeable.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/wintertriangles

If they are not interchangeable why do so many restaurants say 치킨 when it's not fried?

Maybe there could be one whose owner wants to sound exotic, but there can't be many. Calling every kind of chicken 치킨 would definitely confuse most people, and is also incorrect unless you're just transliterating chicken into Korean.

Is it 닭고기 or 치킨?

닭고기 is chicken in general, and 치킨 is the fried chicken Koreans are so obsessed with.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IdaKahler1

Both, but I feel like 치긴 most often refers to fried chicken


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Shootingstarr

it might be that 딝고기 is the native word for poultry and 치킨 is just the konglish anglicism they picked up.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/John19delta

Both. One is Korean and the other is Konglish....

So 고기 is Meat and 닭 is Bird then?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/etchpad

닭 refers only to the living chicken, yes


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dasanders

Could you just say 닭?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sdharper

Saying that only refers to the animal, not the food thing.
