    So I've seen this in a lot of Korean novels, but have no clue what it is. I understand it's a jacket but Why The F does it say Cum. what does cum mean it this context can someone explain please. the best I can figure is that it's a leather jacket but why call it jacket-cum-coat why not just say leather jacket.

    Leather Jacket
    The jacket is leather

    Leather cum Jacket
    Leather with jacket (jacket may be of other material)

    I'm surprised some of you guys don't know its use considering that it is used often here and there. I suppose you just read it and assume its the lewd stuff. :blobpeek:

    Cum is the latin word for with/plus/along with being, etc. Not to confused with the other cum.

    A Jacket cum coat can be used both as a jacket and a coat. Cum is some time used in sentences to join to nouns.
    Well it certainly felt wierd writing this.:sweating_profusely:
    Here cum certainly doesn't mean you know what though :blobpeek:.

    It's like how the word "daddy" is a word used by kids to their father, but the internet took it in a weird direction

    Thank you I thought it was some weird translation thing.
    I didn't think it was that kind of cum.
    to everyone making a cum joke you can't see this but I'm giving you the middle finger.

    O|-|CU|\/|O|\| you of all people should know how the |>/-\E|\/|O|\|Z here would react to such a word. Besides, you need to add "serious" or "no-hijacking" tags in thread to avoid T|-|IZ Yes, |0U|\| intended.

    It didn't even cross my mind I guess I'm not as dirty minded as I think.
    You're right I should have tagged it. I have to remember people are shit all the time.
